What's In a Name? A Giveaway with Lauren's Hope

Saturday, January 24, 2015

Waaaay back in October this little blog reached a pretty big milestone.

One.  Million.  Hits.

Are you kidding me?  I was floored... I really never expected anyone who wasn't related to me to ever read what I was writing.  But almost six years later, I'm totally honored and shocked that sharing our experiences with raising a child with Type One has brought some comfort to others going through the same things. 

I wanted to do something special to say THANKS FOR READING! 

Lauren's Hope was kind enough to come up with a very special contest just for my readers!

When that name is Lauren's Hope, it makes me think of beautiful, sturdy, fun jewelry!

As you know, we love Lauren's Hope!  Sweets wears her medical alert bracelet from Lauren's Hope every day.  More than that - she honestly never takes it off.  She sleeps in it, showers in it, cheers and tumbles and dances in it... It's taken a beating for sure and it's held strong! 

Picking out a bracelet was one of the first things we did together after she was diagnosed.  It was a chance to do something fun - SHOP - because of this disease.  At three years old, she didn't have control over anything, really.  But she could pick out a bracelet!  And that she did! 

Wearing a medical alert bracelet isn't really a luxury for us.  It's a necessity.  When she was younger, I felt safer having her wear it because I knew she probably was too young to share that important medical information if it was needed.  We also used it as way to make sure she always had our cell numbers on her just in case she got lost!  Now that she's older, it's important for other reasons.  I feel that it gives us some added security now that she's doing more things independently. 

And like I said, it's a great way to add some FUN and STYLE to an otherwise ugly and tedious disease. 

Lauren's Hope has designed a special bracelet... JUST FOR US! 

Isn't it pretty?  Beautiful blue beads for diabetes awareness!

Want to win it?!?

Here's what you need to do!

This beautiful bracelet needs a NAME!

So get your thinking caps on!  Think outside of the box!  Let your creativity flow!

Comment on this post with your ideas.  You can come up with as many as you'd like so you can have lots of chances to win! Also, share this contest on your social media sites like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc. 

Sweets and I will pick our top five names.  We will then turn that list over to the folks at Lauren's Hope.  They get to have some input and make sure that there are no active or inactive bracelets with the same or similar names.  Then we will pick the winner!

You have until Saturday, January 31 at midnight EST to submit your ideas! 

We can't wait to see what you've got!  And thanks again for reading!
