Wondrous Wednesday #101 & Graco Get One Give One #1

shhhhhh“Shhhhhhhh…it’s my turn to talk now!”

Jed lets Baby know exactly what’s on his mind, even if he can’t quite get the words out yet :)

In addition to today’s Wondrous Wednesday, today is our first day of Graco Get One Give One – our way of saying thanks to you this season, and to do something good for those in need at the same time.

Today’s prize is the Graco imonitor™ mini Baby Monitor! This digital monitor has optimal sound quality, reaches an extended range of 2000 feet, and comes in a small, portable design that’s easy to take with you. Plus, Graco’s exclusive vibration technology lets you feel your baby’s call.

imonitor-miniHere’s how it works:

- Every day, we’ll be featuring a new Graco prize - anything from car seats to monitors to grooming kits – meaning there will be twelve opportunities to Get One and Give One.

- Comment on that day’s blog post and share a story of who you would “Give One” of that prize to and why they really need it this season. It can be an organization you support, a neighbor that is having a tough season, or you can leave it up to us to share it with someone in need.

- We’ll choose one comment at random every day as our winner.

- If you win, we’ll send you that day’s prize (the “Get One!“) Then, we’ll also send that same product to your nominee/organization in your name, or anonymously if you’d like (the “Give One!“)

- Plus, if you spread the word by on Twitter by sharing this tweet: “Do you know someone deserving of baby gear this holiday? Nominate them here and win for you both! #GracoGOGO http://bit.ly/5639wo” we’ll give you an extra entry (you must comment on the blog first though).

All you need to do is comment and tweet to win – and to do something good for someone who really needs it. Especially in this tough season, we hope we can help make things a little more Merry and Bright.

Every Wednesday we’ll be sharing a photo showing off a little bit of wonder in the lives of our extended Graco family of customers, employees and friends.

Void where prohibited. Winners are chosen at random. Your odds of winning vary by the number of entries. Limited to residents of the US only. For a full set of rules, contact us at blog@gracobaby.com.

**COMMENTS ARE NOW CLOSED. PLEASE RETURN TO THE BLOG TOMORROW TO ENTER IN THE REMAINING 12 DAYS OF GET ONE, GIVE ONE! ALL COMMENTS CLOSE AT 4PM EST DAILY**

    I would give one to my friend who just had preemie triplets. One of the babies did not survive and the other two are struggling. When they finally get to go home, I know she will be hyper vigilant! I would love to bless them w/ this to monitor the babies.

  2. Natalie December 9, 2009 at 10:51 am #

    If I were to win, I’d give one of these to my friend Michelle. She and I were both due in January, but she had to have an emergency C-Section in late October and her baby son was born almost 10 weeks premature. I am sure this would come in handy for her when he comes home so she can listen for him and check up!!!

    Awesome prize-I’m having a baby in Feb and haven’t picked out a monitor yet. This looks like a great one

  6. Andrea D December 9, 2009 at 10:54 am #

    I would love to win this for my son who is expecting his first child. I would keep the other one for me when I am babysitting.. lol
    Thanks for the chance and Happy Holidays! :)

    I would give it to our local Children’s hospital for them to either provide to a family in need or to use in one of their auctions to raise funds for the hospital.

    My daughter was a NICU baby there & we will always be eternally grateful, so we always try to help other families whose babies are there.

  9. Barbara Davis December 9, 2009 at 11:11 am #

    I would give one to the Lactation Consultants at the hospital where all 3 of my daughters were born. They are always collecting items for new parents in need and I’m sure they would know exactly who to give this monitor to.

    Graco is a wonderful company and this promotion is one more reason that I will always be a Graco fan! Happy Holidays!

  10. Shanna December 9, 2009 at 11:12 am #

    Our monitor of 13 years just died and buying a new one is on the list for this weekend. :) I would give one to my friend Melanie.. she is being induced this morning.

  11. Mami2jcn December 9, 2009 at 11:25 am #

    I would give one to my friend Julie, who will be adopting a newborn in January.

  12. Elizabeth December 9, 2009 at 11:32 am #

    I would give one to my friends whose baby was due last week but was born 9 weeks early. She’s still in the hospital but will be coming home soon!

  13. Leanne December 9, 2009 at 11:44 am #

    I would love to win this! I have a dear friend who is due with her first little one in January. Her and her husband work very hard but are overwhelmed with the expenses this addition will bring. I’d love to bless her with this gift!

  14. Corrissa Navarrette December 9, 2009 at 12:10 pm #

    I would love to win this for my younger sister who is having her first baby in March. We are so excited for the little boys arrival, especially after all the complications she had the first four months.

  15. Kristy December 9, 2009 at 12:14 pm #

    I would really love to win this not only for myself, because I’m pregnant due this March, but also for my sister-in-law who has 4 young children under the age of 5, including a newborn baby boy and I know that she could really use this, since times are tough and baby items and/or gear is expensive. Thanks for the opportunity!

  16. Kristy December 9, 2009 at 12:16 pm #

    I just tweeted this contest too, but I don’t know how to transfer the link. I’m @mommyinpink

  17. Leighann December 9, 2009 at 12:18 pm #

    I would give to my coworker who is having her first baby in January. If she already had it, then I would give to our local Crisis Nursery to give to a family in need.

  18. fidget December 9, 2009 at 12:23 pm #

    The Beta House of Orlando needs help this season. They support teens during pregnancy and into parenthood by providing them and their families support, counciling, and baby gear. I’d donate baby gear to them :)

  19. Michaelle December 9, 2009 at 12:27 pm #

    I would love to receive this. I have a newborn and the monitor I have needs a lot of help..if you know what I mean!!!! If I won then I would donate the other one to St. Vincent De Paul which is a thrift store with my church St. Francis Xavier. They would know of a family in need and give it to them!!! Thanks

  20. Jennifer Kruse December 9, 2009 at 1:04 pm #

    I would give one to my best friend who is due with her first baby in February! Her shower is in January, but I don’t think I’ll be able to make it because that’s my busiest time at work and she’s about 1000 miles away. I’d love to be able to send this to her!

  22. Stephanie December 9, 2009 at 1:11 pm #

    It looks like an excellent monitor, but – if I win one – I will give away both because I prefer video monitors (and I already own one). I would give one to my little sister (who just had her 1st baby on 12/1) and one to the local Crisis Pregnancy Center.

    Thanks again for being so thoughtful and creative with the way that you are handling this 12-day campaign. In many ways, it’s MORE fun to win things for others! :)

  24. Krista December 9, 2009 at 1:32 pm #

    I would give one to my friend who just had a baby 2 weeks ago.

  25. Kristen December 9, 2009 at 1:36 pm #

    This would be fantastic as I now have 2 little boys under 2 in 2 different bedrooms. We are constantly swapping monitors based on who is napping. I’d also love to give one of these to my cousin. She just had her 3rd baby girl (her older 2 daughters are twin 6 year olds). The new baby, Kinsley, was born with a thyroid condition and therefore lots of medical bills are piling up. To top all that off her husband is serving in Afghanistan for an entire year! I can’t even imagine having a new baby with a medical condition and not having my husband at home by my side through it all. Forget about the idea of worrying about him every moment of every day OR that he won’t be there to see every milestone for an entire year. Thankfully he was able to make it home and stay for 3 days when the baby was born. Happy Holidays everyone! Thank you Graco!

  27. Holly December 9, 2009 at 1:37 pm #

    I’d give it to my teenage cousin who is expecting a baby in a few months. She and the baby’s father will be trying to finish school while raising the baby girl. We’ve been giving her our baby gear we no longer need, but with 2 mischievous boys in our house, it will be a while before we no longer need our monitors!

  28. Miranda December 9, 2009 at 2:11 pm #

    I would love to win this Graco moniter. We just had a baby 6 months ago and the moniters I used with my first son don’t really work anymore. So this would be great! Thank you for the chance to win!

  29. Miranda December 9, 2009 at 2:12 pm #

    I follow Graco on Twitter and tweeted. @MamaHatch

  30. Kim December 9, 2009 at 2:31 pm #

    I would love to win this, as right now we only have one monitor and that stays in my 3yr old’s room. We don’t have one for our 9 month old’s room. I would also give one to my friend Jen who is deaf and often watches young children. The vibration feature would really come in handy for her!!

  31. Kim December 9, 2009 at 2:36 pm #

    Tweeted about it! http://twitter.com/allykitty5/status/6504476359 (although my tweets are private, so you’ll have to follow me if you want to see it!)

  32. Erin December 9, 2009 at 3:01 pm #

    I have always like the Graco products used with my friends children but now after having my daughter in September and using the Metrolite Travel system… I am in love! Your company continues to impress me day in and day out. If I won the monitor system, I would like to give the second one to my good friend Michelle She’s been an ever present and endless source of information, peace of mind, and encouragement that I can be a great mom. She is expecting her second child in June and with a newly finished basement, her room is on a different floor from the nursery. A great monitor is certainly in need.

  33. Anne December 9, 2009 at 3:01 pm #

    I would give one to our local Ronald McDonald House. They have rooms on several floors and when a parent has one clild who is sleeping, they can’t go down the hall and play with others in the common rooms. They would really put the monitor to good use!!

  34. Pooh! December 9, 2009 at 3:15 pm #

    I would give it to my sis-in-law who is expecting twins after battling for years with infertility!

  35. Kristy December 9, 2009 at 3:22 pm #

    I would give one to my friend, Heidi, who is expecting her second. I just had my second (a sweet little girl) & can’t wait till we both have two in tow!

  36. emily kate December 9, 2009 at 3:32 pm #

    I would share with my friend who is expecting her first (as am I) and her husband is also in school (as is mine.) Being a new parent can be expensive, especially when you’re living on a student budget

  37. emily kate December 9, 2009 at 3:33 pm #

    I tweeted! http://twitter.com/2ndstorywindow/status/6506131125

  38. Pam December 9, 2009 at 3:38 pm #

    I would give them both away – one to a friend who just found out she is pregnant (unplanned) and will be raising this baby alone.

  39. Jordan Barraza December 9, 2009 at 3:44 pm #

    Hi I would love to give this to my sister in law she just found out she’s expecting her first child due in June with my brother there a young couple. Im so happy for them they have had a rough year my brother has gotten his hours cut at work due to low shipments for his work also to reduce lay offs. And she is working 2 jobs over 12 hours a day to make ends meet. I love them both and am trying to help them out with there needs for the baby so they don’t have to worry about that extra burden. So this would make them so happy to get one and the other one i can donate to a women and children shelter for teen or single mothers our abuse victims since i don’t have a child at this time.

  40. Delora December 9, 2009 at 3:49 pm #

    I’m due in Jan, so this would be wonderful! I’d also give one to my friend Amy, who is due in Feb. This was an unexpected pregnancy for her, and her and her new husband are struggling to establish a stable household before the babe comes.

  41. Delora December 9, 2009 at 3:50 pm #

    I tweeted your giveaway! http://twitter.com/delora/status/6506571559

  42. Megan December 9, 2009 at 3:54 pm #

    I would give one to my husband’s cousin. She is due with her first baby girl in January, after trying to conceive for almost a year, and after a miscarriage in Dec. 2007. I know she would love to have this prize because it would make the first couple of nerve-wracking weeks a lot easier. Everyone deserves something to make the transition from couple to family of three go smoothly!

    I also posted on my twitter!! http://www.twitter.com/mommawidstrand

  43. Jackie December 9, 2009 at 4:36 pm #

    I would give one to my friend Nicki who is due 6 weeks before me. She lives in Ohio and has been unable to find work in 2 years, so I know every little bit counts. I can’t wait for her son to be born and for them to meet our daughter a few months later. Mommies already working the cupid’s arrow. :D

  44. Sara December 9, 2009 at 4:52 pm #

    I would give one to my sister who is expecting her first baby!! :)

  45. michelle rosborough December 9, 2009 at 4:52 pm #

    My brother-in-laws son just got married and just had a baby. They could really use this

    I get a 2nd entry for tweeting!!! Please pick me so I can gift one to my friend Nicki in Ohio! :D

  48. Shelley G December 9, 2009 at 4:59 pm #

    I would give one to my friend that’s expecting her first in May. Earlier this year we were both expecting. She miscarried and remained supportive during my pregnancy. I think this is one of the many thanks I could give her.

  49. Michelle Carter December 9, 2009 at 5:05 pm #

    I would give one to my friend Sheila. She has her granddaughter and they have just lost everything

  50. Kelly Voelker December 9, 2009 at 5:05 pm #
