Graco GOGO #1: Graco SimpleSwitch Highchair Giveaway and Donation

Welcome to the first day of Graco’s Get One Give One program this holiday season! We love to give back and we know you do too – so here’s a simple way to do something good for someone else AND get something free for yourself:

Comment at the bottom of this post to tell us about a person or organization that you think is deserving of the product we’re featuring today and why. We’ll select one of your comments at random and both you and your nominee will win that day’s prize! Here’s some more information on Graco Get One Give One and how to participate.

Now, let’s learn more about today’s lovely prize.

The Graco SimpleSwitch™ Highchair is a fantastic option for parents looking for a highchair that lasts. Built to grow with your child, SimpleSwitch™ has a 2-in-1 design that transitions from a highchair to a booster seat once your child is ready.

For convenience and tidy storage, this chair comes with integrated storage for the legs once you’ve removed them for booster use.

And as you’ll find with all Graco highchairs, SimpleSwitch has a dishwasher-safe tray, fabrics that are easy to clean, and easy one- and two-hand options for tray removal.

Today’s GracoGOGO giveaway includes a SimpleSwitch highchair in the Ashford fashion – available exclusively at Walmart. This neutral plaid fashion in greens, browns and blues are a perfect fit in any home and give your baby a cozy place for mealtime.

We can’t wait to hear your stories. Come back tomorrow for another chance to win and give!

*Entries are now closed. Thanks to everyone who participated. The winner is Laurne J! Laurne, Graco will be in touch shortly to get you (and your sister in law) your prize!

    I’d like to nominate our church, Utica Baptist Church in Utica, KY. Recently we’ve had a baby boom and not been able to keep up with the expansion! I know that the nursery would appreciate this highchair greatly!

  2. Jen December 13, 2010 at 8:01 pm #

    My dear friend is pregnant and due in Feburary. She works/volunteers for a non-profit no-kill animal shelter in northern NJ. She makes pennies but loves helping and saving homeless animals. She does not have a lot of money and could really use this highchair.

    I wish I could help her out more, but this would be perfect. Please consider her.

    I would like to donate one to the Xenia pregnancy crisis center where the help mothers with education and supplies during and after birth. This is a great org. whom helps those who need it most. I myself could use the other one as I an due in Jan. We are a military family with big gaps between our kids. Thanks Graco

  4. Keri G December 13, 2010 at 8:16 pm #

    I would like to donate a chair to Newborns In Need – an organization connected with Denver Health Medical that makes sure that new moms who deliver in their hospital leave with the supplies they will need. I can’t even imagine what having a high chair would mean to one of those moms.
    (Awesome idea, by the way, thanks for doing it!)

  5. Stacey December 13, 2010 at 8:25 pm #

    I would love to give this high chair to our local Teen Moms program that helps meet the tangible and emotional needs of pregnant and parenting teens who choose to keep their babies. This would be so helpful in their program!

  6. Jessi December 13, 2010 at 9:22 pm #

    I would donate it to the Salvation Army for someone who really needs it this holiday season.

  7. Angela December 13, 2010 at 9:24 pm #

    I would give one to my mom who watches my little ones. I have a 1 and a half year old and have another on the way. She will need two highchairs, as will I.

  8. LissaL December 13, 2010 at 9:28 pm #

    I would donate the Graco High Chair to the First Step Mother Infant Program in Sarasota FL. The mother/infant program helps pregnant/post-partum women with substance abuse problems. I want every mother & child to have the best start, the best care, that they possibly can & am glad that First Step is a part of my community. I would give the other high to my son, whose first child was born last month:)

  9. COURTNEY December 13, 2010 at 9:29 pm #

    If I won I’d give it to my cousin who’s expecting her baby boy next month.. She’s a single mother that isn’t working so it’s going to be hard for her to get the things she needs for her baby..

  10. Heidi Sparks December 13, 2010 at 9:30 pm #

    My sister. She is a foster mom and she gets a lot of infants and toddlers in her home for long periods of time, she has already adopted two of her foster kids and currently has 2 more in her home, one is 1 1/2 and the other is 6 months. She is such an amazing mother and a good hearted person, it would be amazing for her to have a new highchair. She lost her daughter in surgery when she was only 10 days old and has never been able to get pregnant again, I love her so much and now that I am a mother I could never imagine losing a child and being able to home and love other peoples children the way she does, she deserves this!

  11. Dee December 13, 2010 at 9:32 pm #

    If I win, I will give one to the Tapestry group at church. They provide help for people all of the US with foster care and adoption needs.

  12. mara December 13, 2010 at 10:14 pm #

    My sister deserves this – she is due in March and lost her job!

  13. Summer December 13, 2010 at 10:15 pm #

    I would love to win for my sister due in April. She sure could use one of these. Her husband is in Afghanistan during this special time. We hope to have one of our own too, next year, hopefully with all the challenges we have had, it will be possible to over come them.

  14. Caitlin Perkinson December 13, 2010 at 10:19 pm #

    I nominate my friends Dano & Roger Warren. They have 4 children ages 3,1 & twins boys born in September!!

    Thank you so much for the chance to win!!

    Happy Holidays & good luck to all!

  15. Kayte CookWatts December 13, 2010 at 10:22 pm #

    Women’s Intercommunity AIDS Resource in Portland, OR. I used to volunteer for them years ago and they did a lot of women and children that didn’t have much. I guess I would technically be winning and giving both of them away- because my brother is expecting his first child and if I won, mine would be for my new niece!

  16. Holly Boze December 13, 2010 at 11:02 pm #

    I nominate my Mom! She is my best friend and always there when I need her help with my 5 year old and I know she will be there for me when our Baby Boy arrives in March. The high chair she has is from the ’80′s, so it would be wonderful for her to have an updated one that is safer and of course, I’d love one, too. My highchair from my daughter has been recalled, so I am now without one, too. Graco is Awesome!

  17. Lisa December 13, 2010 at 11:17 pm #

    I’d love to give this to one of my daughter’s who both have newer babies who are approaching the feeding stage and will need highchairs.

  18. Amanda Carson December 13, 2010 at 11:26 pm #

    I would love one for my 9 week old baby and I know a mum with a 6mth old, due with her 6th next year so I would help her out with one!

  19. Kyra December 13, 2010 at 11:45 pm #

    I would give this highchair to a family friend who is expecting her first child – and has found both herself and her husband unemployed this holiday season. They could really benefit from anything baby-wise that can be donated. She would literally cry tears of joy for a brand new highchair.

  20. Linda Hill December 14, 2010 at 12:48 am #

    I would love to give this chair to my daughter who just had her first child. She is a college student and holds a job and needs some extra help which we have not been able to help her much. I would keep the other for myself since I watch my beautiful Grandson while she is at school and work.

  21. Jennifer December 14, 2010 at 1:41 am #

    I would love to win this highchair for the Hope pregnancy center in my hometown! They are fairly new still and are doing wonderful things for young pregnant women! The other I would love for my new little neice coming in March!

  22. Jennifer Kruse December 14, 2010 at 2:18 am #

    I would love to win this highchair and give one to the Safe Haven Maternity home in my community. This is a place where pregnant women have a safe place to stay and food to eat. It’s a wonderful charity and they are always in need of products like this one!

  23. Jennifer Kruse December 14, 2010 at 2:21 am #

    I tweeted, too! http://twitter.com/#!/curlyq776/status/14498424875388928

  24. Kimberlee December 14, 2010 at 2:58 am #

    I would love to win this for Dorothy – she is a wonderful mom to two great children and is working to get her high school diploma. She has never asked for help, but her teacher asked the staff in our building to surprise Dorothy this Christmas and what a great addition this would be :)

  25. Tonya December 14, 2010 at 3:47 am #

    I would give my one to my sister in law who cares for my baby boy(7 months) has her own daughter (17 months) and is 5 months pregnant. A 2nd highchair for her would definitely help for feedings. The other one I would give to a local shelter (not sure which one yet as there as so many of them)

  26. Chris December 14, 2010 at 7:02 am #

    I’d love to share it with my sister in law who had a baby 5 months ago and is getting closer to the food stage and will need a highchair. Thanks.

  27. Kerry Farrow December 14, 2010 at 2:08 pm #

    I would like to enter my best friend Leanne for this! She shares everything with me! She really struggled to concieve he first born but is now expecting her second! She is coping tremendously although she is terrified something will go wrong! She really could benefit froma highchair and this was put such a smile on her face. Thanks Kerry x

  28. Kim December 14, 2010 at 2:09 pm #

    I would love to win this for myself! I have 2 small children and only one high chair so this would be a huge help for me! Thank you for the giveaway! :)

  29. Brandy December 14, 2010 at 2:14 pm #

    I would like to give one to my niece. She and I both have 5 month old boys, born 2 days apart! She recently found out that her son is blind from a condition that only effects 1 in 10 million babies for an unknown reason. She is 20 years old and a single mother to this wonderful little boy. She works full time and goes to college full time and will graduate in may with a degree as a paralegal. She is doing everything she can to give her son the best treatment and programs she can. She is a strong young woman that deserves a little pick me up for being a loving, wonderful mother to her little man!!! Thanks for your consideration and time!!!

  30. Nicol December 14, 2010 at 2:18 pm #

    My friend just found out she was pregnant with her second child. Her husband and her just took a job and moved here for the job…leaving all the stuff she had from her 1st child behind… only to get here and a few weeks later the company closed. I also have a 5 noth old so this is much needed at my home as well. My 2 tear old is still using hers.

  31. Heather K December 14, 2010 at 2:20 pm #

    I would give it to my little sister, who is due on Christmas Eve!

  32. amanda moline December 14, 2010 at 2:22 pm #

    I believe the ronald mcdonald house of northwest ohio(toledo) deserves this.They sometimes have more than one baby/toddler staying & only have one high chair they need a second one.
    I have a 6 month old who doesnt have a highchair

  33. Jim December 14, 2010 at 2:22 pm #

    I think the Ronald McDonald House in West Philadelphia would be a great place to receive this chair. They support the families who have loved ones at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania. We volunteered to cook a meal there last spring and I can vouch that they do great work and the families that stay there greatly benefit from the services provided.

  34. Cathy Mauricio December 14, 2010 at 2:23 pm #

    I would love to win this graco simpleswitch highchair. If I won, I would keep one for myself (since I will start keeping my new granddaughter in a month) & I would give the other one to my son & his girlfriend, since they just had my granddaughter 2 weeks ago. Since I will be keeping her after their maternity leave is over, I have had to buy a bed, stroller & car seat. I couldn’t afford a highchair, so that’s why I’d love to win this..

  35. Virginia December 14, 2010 at 2:26 pm #

    I would say I’d like to see the agency named family services of chester county, they have alot of diffrent programs for families and people in need of mental health services, they also have the Exchange club which helps in preventing child abuse or child neglect so this would be a great place to recieve a high chair for one of their needy clients. I would like to thank Graco for giving us the opportunity to be able to help one another.

  36. Dawn A December 14, 2010 at 2:28 pm #

    My friend Jessica is really deserving of the Graco Simplywitch Highchair. She recently moved with her 7 month old daughter. She considers a highchair to be luxury that she cannot afford. She takes care of her daughter in a studio apartment while her husband works 12 hour shifts. The highchair can be used by her long-term because it converts to a booster seat.

    I can also use one for my 2 year old son.

  37. pam hansen December 14, 2010 at 2:31 pm #

    I would love to win this for my daughter.she has a 16 month old who just had emergency abdominal surgery & a 6 month old & she only has a folding-high chair for them to share

  38. Jill December 14, 2010 at 2:38 pm #

    I would like this for my sister Dana, she is having her 3rd child and doesn’t have alot of money. I would like to surprise her with this.Every little bit helps these days. Thanks

  39. cala g December 14, 2010 at 2:39 pm #

    my sister in law and I :-) we are both expecting at the moment and could use a high chair. thanks for the chance to win one!

  40. Wendy Lopez December 14, 2010 at 2:43 pm #

    I would love to win this high chair for my self because right now I really need one.
    my son just trun 6 months and has been eating from a use swing a nice person gave to me …Iam single mother of a 7 years old and my baby who is 6 months .well I got lay off from my job and I had to move with my mother.it’s so hard for me right now knowing my kids need winter clothes
    and I can’t buy it right now…if I win this high chair it would help me out so much :)

  41. Angela D December 14, 2010 at 2:44 pm #

    I would love to nominate the Atlanta Children’s shelter to receive this highchair and if I win the high chair I would give them mine as well. Although I am expecting my second baby in May, the Graco high chair I bought for my first baby who is now 2 is still an amazing high chair and I love it so I could still use that one and donate this one. The Atlanta Children’s shelter provides shelter, support services and high quality child development care for homeless families striving for self sufficiency. Over 90% of the families served are single moms with 1-2 children and these moms need help. GRaco makes amazing products and I know these high chairs could help a family in need so much. Thank you for giving back!

  42. Jennifer Bailey December 14, 2010 at 2:45 pm #

    My sister in law and I sold or gave away EVERYTHING we own from my 3 and her 3 children, then suddenly found out we are both expecting babies #4!! We could both use a highchair as I am due in Feb 2011 and she in June 2011. Thanks for considering us!

  43. Kristin Mattice December 14, 2010 at 2:46 pm #

    I would like to win the highchair for myself and my neice. We are both due she is due in jan and im due in may.

  44. Yolanda December 14, 2010 at 2:50 pm #

    I can surely use this, I’m due Feb 18 and want to make I pick a good company and graco is the best!

  45. Ana Benitez December 14, 2010 at 3:00 pm #

    I wan to nominare the Children’s Hospital at Albany Med in Albany NY. As an OB/Gyn resident I help deliver the babies that eventually become the patients of this wonderful teaching institution. The nurses, resident physicians and staff physicians are some of the most caring I’ve met in my life. Now having a 7 month old myself I know it would be great to be able to feed my baby in a high chair instead of struggling on someone’s lap if he were ever hospitalized.

  46. AMBER December 14, 2010 at 3:00 pm #

    I would like to nominate a friend of mine who is having triplets any day now! She has been in the hospital on bed rest for the last 8 weeks. Right now she is 31 weeks, which is a miracle in itself! We would be so thankful for any help she can get!

  47. Jackie C December 14, 2010 at 3:14 pm #

    I would give them to my friend who is expecting twins!! I would mention her name, but not all the family knows yet (holiday surprise!) so I will hold off, but they are a military family so I know every little bit helps. It will be especially difficult for them too because they were recently relocated across the country away from family and friends :( .

  48. Anna December 14, 2010 at 3:15 pm #

    I would like to nominate a lady my husband works with. She found she was pregnant again and her husband has been laid off for over a year now. their second child was born in March and things are still tough on them with her only working a commission only job.

  49. Stephanie Roecker December 14, 2010 at 3:18 pm #

    I would give one to my mother. She takes care of my almost 3 y.o. Every weekend so I can work. I am also expecting in july. I gave all of my stuff to my little cousin who had a baby in april. I’m a single mom who’s budge is extremely tight and I thank God for everything I get help with. Thank you. Merry Christmas.
