How affectionate are you? (Flip Camera Giveaway!)


I am so excited to be part of the Lever2000 Make Every Touch Count Campaign!

I get to share with you something I already believe in, and then one of you can win this:
Open to US only
Yep, one of you will win this Flip Ultra 230 camera in white and silver worth $149.99 courtesy of Lever 2000! Oh yeah, do a dance, shake your booty! Okay, stop. Because you need to find out how. First off, some info about what Lever 2000 is up to:

Parents are showing more affection to their kids than their parents showed them, and dads are especially more affectionate now. Families today are feeling increased stress and anxiety due to the economy, however, 81% of parents who report feeling increased stress also say that the weakened economy has made their family closer. More than four in five dads (84%) surveyed show their kids more physical affection – like hugs – than their parents did with them (vs. 78% of moms). Parents report hugging and kissing their kids, on average, six times a day.

The benefits of touch to the family include: strengthening family bonds (83%); providing comfort (77%) and reassurance (75%); and helping them reduce stress (57%), according to parents surveyed.

This according to the “Make Every Touch Count” survey, sponsored by Lever 2000, which invites families to share photos of their favorite family moments that showcase how their family embraces the power of touch for a chance to win great prizes. Submit photos to www.makeeverytouchcount.com. Winners get a professional photo shoot and to be featured in a Lever 2000 advertisement, among other prizes. In addition, each submission helps Lever 2000 support the Boys & Girls Clubs of America, which provides safe places and positive programs for kids and helps them develop close personal bonds.

So I know you want to win that flip but how cool would it be to win this photo contest? And what a great thing to promote! I for one am for affection 100%! I know some people think I go overboard because I am constantly kissing and hugging my kids and hubby but I love it! And I do not come from a very affectionate family. We were more likely to tease to show our love than to hug. My hubby does come from a pretty affectionate family though, so that helps!

Okay, okay, enough jibber jabber and let's get on to the fun part!

Oh, first, you can get a $1.00 off Lever2000 coupon HERE!

Here's how you win:

  3. I would love to win the flip because I need one so bad for my hubby. It will be father's day soon and I'd love to gift this prize to him that special day. I don't have a ton of finances to do it, so I'm hoping on this win :)

  5. I want to win the flip for one huge reason. My girlfriend figure skates and I would love to be able to videotape her while she practices so that she can review her form. I'm bad at knowing what she is or isn't doing correctly and this would be a huge help!

  39. I would absolutely love to have a Flip camera because I've heard such great things about them, as well as how handy it would be! It's not like I carry around a video camera with us when we're playing or going to the park, this way I would be able to pull this out and catch so many fun moments with my girls.

  45. I'd love to win a Flip; we don't have a camcorder and I've missed so many memories. We've been talking about buying one but something else always comes first when you have 4 kids. The Flip is so compact and looks easy to use; perfect for us first-time camcorder owners.
