    I don’t know if I can say myself or not. But my daughter just turned 5 months old. She is a big baby and she still riding in her infant car seat and it’s getting very snug. So I nominate my beautiful baby girl.

  2. Pam October 26, 2012 at 5:51 pm #

    My daughters friend that is 16 could really use a bigger car seat for her 11 month old son he is getting to big for his infant seat.

  3. katy m October 26, 2012 at 5:55 pm #

    My sister could really use one.

  4. Michelle Heasley October 26, 2012 at 5:57 pm #

    I have a friend that is having a baby and she can not afford an infant seat. My infant seat expires in December 2012. It is a Graco Snugride 22. I wish I could give it to her but I know it is not safe to use seats after the expiration date. I plan on taking it to the car seat recycling center. I would give the brand new infant seat to her so she would have a safe seat for her little one when they come. The second infant seat I would keep for my little girl. She currently uses the Snugride 22 that expires in December 2012. We need to get her a new seat before then. If I won I would make sure that once we were done with the Graco SnugRide® Click Connect I would pass it on to another family in need.

    I nominate my cousin Brianna. She’s just 16 years old and pregnant with her first child. I’m very proud of her for making the decision not to get an abortion, but to stand up and take on responsibility for her choice. I’ve been trying to help her by giving her clothes and such, but I am also pregnant with my 4th child, and only due 29 days apart from one another. Thank you for the chance to help her some more!

  6. Maria Castillo October 26, 2012 at 6:05 pm #

    I would give one to the Haven Hills domestic violence shelter. They help alot of women and children escaping domestic violence situations and could really use an extra carseat.

  7. Clarissa Bradford October 26, 2012 at 6:25 pm #

    I am a the babysitter to a little one I just started watching her last week, her daddy has been out of work for 2 years and he just got a job. Her current seat is about to expire since it was her big brothers. I would use the one I win for her in my car I am a CPST so its hard for me knowing her seat will soon expire, so I would let her parents use it to. For the second seat I would give it to my best friend who is a foster mom, she takes in little ones of all sizes and this would be the perfect seat for her to use! Thank you for doing this GRACO!!

  8. Jessica October 26, 2012 at 6:39 pm #

    I nominate a client of mine. We will call her *Amanda. She is a mere 18 years old and on her own. She has been in and out of treatment homes for the past 4-5 years, and two years ago while in treatment her father passed away. She is on her own family wise, and relies on support from friends. She is due in December with a baby girl, and is currently unemployed. I have been gathering items here and there for her, and I plan on visiting her soon to deliver these items. My infant seat expires in December, so that won’t work for her. She is currently planning on using a seat that was given to her by a friend, but it is also expired. I know that this would be a life saver for her.

  9. Holly Guski October 26, 2012 at 6:59 pm #

    I would really love to win this for our son! We have a carseat now but it was expired in 2008! I want nothing more for my children then to always keep them safe, and I only like graco products because they are the best! Of I win I would like to either five the other one to my sister or our local human services dept to give to a family in our area that is in need!

  10. Jennifer October 26, 2012 at 7:02 pm #

    Me and my sister :)

  11. Beth October 26, 2012 at 7:39 pm #

    I would love one for my son that we are expecting in 8 1/2 weeks and the other one I would gladly let Graco decide who could use it.

  12. Janna October 26, 2012 at 8:08 pm #

    I think my friend Autumn, due in January with her first son, should win one. She is going to be an amazing mom but the baby’s father has let his depression get the best of him and after stopping working and relying on Autumn to take care of finances and his other son. She left him so he wouldn’t drag her down further, and he hurt her a lot throughout this pregnancy. She is going to be a wonderful mother but I know she needs the help now.

  13. Amy Campbell October 26, 2012 at 8:45 pm #

    I nominate my friend Brittany. She is due in January with her second child. Her husband will be deployed at the time of the birth. I know something like a free car seat will help her a ton on a not so lavish military pay. She has been a good friend to me – a fellow military wife and I absolutely think she deserves this.

  14. Larissa October 26, 2012 at 10:06 pm #

    My friend could really use a new Graco SnugRide® Click Connect™ for her daughter. My friend Brenda has been through a lot this last year. She is a single parent of two and her daughter (who is her youngest) also has down syndrome and is very small for her age. This past year she became a victim of domestic violence. She herself is now battling some medical issues and is in a tight spot money wise. Her daughter is too uncomfortable in the normal infant carrier and her mom gave her a used carseat to use which she doesn’t like and is unsure of if it is expired or not (I just learned about this today). This carseat could really benefit her since her daughter can not sit on her own yet and the fact you can take this in she could leave her child in it while shopping instead of trying to use the carts in the store. I am really hoping I can help her out by getting her a useable carseat for her daughter that would be safe and a HUGE benefit to her mom and might ease her mind to one thing! I know whoever wins there will be a least 2 kids who benefit from a great carseat!!

    As a parent of a child with special needs I am in a large community of people who spend $$$ in medical bills. This would be such a nice gift to know that their child would ride to and from the hospital in comfort. The family I am going to enter I have never met in person but I’ve found hope reading their blog. Their darling son has a condition called Trisomy 18, also known as Edwards syndrome. Medical literature refers to these kids as being “incompatible with life.” Life is much more difficult for them. Every day is a struggle of g-tubes, ventilators, etc. Every illness is life threatening, and they live in constant fear. They are not broken their trials but instead made strong. They are happy and cherish every moment, with a gratitude for life that most of us couldn’t even imagine. I am so inspired by their story.

  16. Paige October 26, 2012 at 10:51 pm #

    My sister and I are both pregnant and I would love to be able to do something special for her. She has gone out of her way to make sure I have everything I need. Since I am in a sticky situation right now, she has been such an angel. She makes sure I have dinner every night and has helped me make up a wonderful little room my for baby when he comes. I am not able to all these great things for her that she has done for me and she deserves it and so much more.

  17. Liz October 26, 2012 at 11:02 pm #

    I would nominate by brother and sister-in-law who are expecting their second baby this spring. I nominate them because they are just wondering and deserving people. They are dedicated to keeping their first child rear facing as long as possible, and they plan to do extended harnessing once forward facing. We all know that is expensive to do, so I’d like them to receive this seat to help them rear face their new baby and save up for an extended rear facing/ extended harnessing convertible for later when the baby outgrows this one. Since I am not expecting myself, I would give the other one away to my cousin who is also expecting her second baby. I know that she will have a hard time gathering all of her baby needs, since she gave away all of her baby gear from her first child. This would be one less expense for her :) Thank you for your consideration.

  18. Britany October 26, 2012 at 11:04 pm #

    I would LOVE to win this for my best friend Jasmine. She has three little children all under the age of 4. Recently her husband has been suffering through some medical issues and he is unable to help her with the kids. Something like this would absolutely make her and day and it would make mine too, to see her smile!

  19. Nicole Vosburgh October 26, 2012 at 11:15 pm #

    Currently, we have a hand me down seat, that I don’t really like putting my son in, but it works until we are able to buy him a new one. As far as the other seat goes, I would love to give it to my good friend who currently has been in labor for almost 48 hours with her first baby girl! I would love to be a blessing to her.

  20. Theresa October 27, 2012 at 1:34 am #

    I would give it to our local young women’s organization called Hannah’s House. They help young moms get on their feet and give them the tools they need to succeed in parenting.

  21. Cheryl October 27, 2012 at 3:02 am #

    My sister and I are new Grandmas we could really use these as our hubbies have been laid off !

  22. Rebekka S October 27, 2012 at 3:32 am #

    If I won I would donate the one carseat to the OFRC, an emergency shelter that houses children that have been displaced due to foster care, abuse, and homlessness. I used to work there and remember how hard it was to find an infant seat that fit the little ones that we would get. some times we would have 4 or 5 that needed car seats and you always had to takeout and uninstall the seat that worked best for each child which incresses the risk of one being installed incorrectly. it would be awsome if I could give them a seat that they can use for a little 6lb newborn that was taken from an abusive situation to the 30lb 1yr old with a teenage homeless mom with out having to change out seats in the van. The seat for myself I would use for my own 1yr old who would enjoy riding in such a safe and comfy looking seat. I think its great that graco has made a seat that takes into account how much safer it is to have your babies and toddlers ride rear facing as long as possible. I know that these carseats would be a blessing to anyone that recieves them. Thank you so much for offering a prize that will keep some ones baby safe and good luck to everyone that has entered.

  23. Leslie Ortega October 27, 2012 at 7:38 am #

    I would love to win this for my son who is 8 months and will be in need soon and the other one I would like to donate to any Christmas organizations of your choice.

  24. Miranda Welle October 27, 2012 at 1:20 pm #

    I would LOVE to win a seat for our baby and another for my sister in law. She is due in January. The seat they had for their first baby was bought used (since they were a newly married young couple and couldn’t afford a good new seat.) But the seat is very flimsy and feels like it’s falling apart. I know they won’t be able to afford a new one this time either so they will have to use the other one again. I would love to have the peace of mind knowing my new niece or nephew (and my own baby) are riding in SAFETY and style. Thanks for the chance.

  25. kristy October 27, 2012 at 1:40 pm #

    I need one for my daycare, and my mom needs one for her foster kids. Hers are very used seats, it would be nice for her to have a nice new one that’s not close to expiring. I help out my daycare families as much as I can and it would be nice to give one to them or lend it around. Carseats are very expensive, it would be nice to help them out.

  26. Kellie Kluger October 27, 2012 at 6:27 pm #

    I would donate the extra car seat to a local shelter for women that are looking to get back on their feet.

  27. PJ Richa October 27, 2012 at 8:13 pm #

    My sister just had her first baby and truly needs to work full time to support her family. She has only one car seat and has to take it out of her car everyday so that mom/dad and her husband could each take care of the baby while she works. If I won, I would give them the car seats. They would be ever so grateful and so would I. Thank you for this chance.

  28. yaddy ramos October 28, 2012 at 1:12 pm #

    I will give one to my sister and the other one to my church. My sister s having a baby in December and this s her first baby. I’m the older of the family and I’m the only one with kids, however, I’m helping her with everything I can. And because I already have a car seat I will donate it to my church that way it can be given to a family that can use it.

  29. Jeff R. October 28, 2012 at 3:34 pm #

    My wife is expecting our first child in 3 months so we would could def use one. The other one I would give to my wife’s sister and husband who are moving here with their 6 month old baby from India next month!

  30. Brei October 28, 2012 at 7:28 pm #

    I would give a Graco SnugRide® Click Connect™ 40 car seat to a family in need at a Christmas organization this year!

  31. Heidi H October 29, 2012 at 1:31 am #

    I would really be honored to be picked for the infant carrier as I am a nanny and foster parent. The family that I nanny for is expecting 2 babies in February and being a foster parent means that I could have a call for an infant at any hour of the day. I do not own a infant carrier currently and and this could help out greatly.

  32. Yaniris vidal October 29, 2012 at 5:07 am #

    One of my friend’s younger cousins is pregnant with her first child, she got kicked out of her parents house and is now living with my friend. I would love to give this to her so that she feels like it was the best decision for her to have the baby as opposed to abortion. She doesn’t have the money nor could her family afford to buy it for her. She is so young I would love for her to have it.

  33. kelli November 14, 2012 at 6:50 pm #

    i would love to be picked for the boosters or the click connect 40, i have a 10 month old and need to get him a new carseat but dont have the funds right now. i would give one to my friend that has a little boy or the boosters would work for 5 year old and my cousin. i would also give a booster to a friend of mine that has twin 5 year old. i love graco products, everything i own is graco far as my baby, it is just the name brand that i trust for my kids.

  34. terri November 14, 2012 at 6:55 pm #

    i could really use the booster or the click connect 40 infant carrier, both of my daughters are due near each other and i could use them in the my car for both of the kids. i could also use the boosters for older grandkids that are 5 years old..my daughter would be so excited if i got these, she loves graco and always is tryiing to buy something new…

  35. Rose Clark November 15, 2012 at 7:08 pm #

    Love to win 2 Graco SnugRide® Click Connect™ 40; one for my 4-month old baby boy, and another will be given to my friend who is expecting her baby boy in December. I’ve been a loyal customer of Graco products, particularly the carseat. I have the SnugRide 35 that I used for my first child and currently use with my second baby. My oldest is now still RF in the MyRide 65 Convertible, so winning the booster for her will also be a plus when she gets older :)

  36. natalia November 28, 2012 at 3:31 pm #

    I would love to win any of these great prizes.thanks

  37. Anabel Anson December 3, 2012 at 3:38 pm #

    I would really love to win any of this for our first child. I would be a very big help for us since we just started our new life as a parents and new couple. I’ll pray to God for this to win.
