You’ve asked, you’ve begged, you’ve whined, and at least one of you wished upon a star….And thanks to Maxine Wolf, CEO & Publisher of KIWI Magazine, you now have another chance to win a one year KIWI Magazine subscription!
Wondering what’s the big deal? It’s just a magazine, right? Uh, no. Not just a magazine. KIWI is the ultimate read for jump-starting an eco-friendly lifestyle and supporting your family’s (and the planet’s) health. I like to think of it as a Parenting or Parents magazine gone green–but all year round. The articles and tips on parenting and healthy living are hip and cutting-edge. For instance, the latest edition offers a how-to feature on making your own baby food and a feature on deciphering food labels. Oh, in case you’re thinking it, you don’t have to be a tree hugging, save the whales kind of person to fall in love with KIWI. Of course, if you are that kind of person, you’re bound to fall in love, too.
KIWI is all about giving you eco-friendly information and resources to help you grow responsible, caring, healthy, thinking children. It’s about helping us, as parents and individuals, do our part in making the world around us just a little bit better.
Here’s the scoop: To enter this free contest, you’ll need to leave a comment below in the comments section and briefly state what you do (or would like to do) to make the world greener. The contest ends at midnight on May 9th. The winner will be chosen at random and will need a U.S. mailing address to receive the subscription. The winner’s name will be announced on the blog. Of course, if you can’t wait for the contest to end, you can always click on over to KIWI and subscribe today!
I vividly remember my first Chicco purchase. When I was pregnant with my third child and could no longer carry my toddler comfortably on short errands (like into the post office), I decided I needed a lightweight umbrella stroller. Thinking that I’d use one only for a couple of months, until the baby arrived–at which point I’d whip out my Joovy Caboose–I zipped over to a big box retailer to buy a cheapo ”disposable” stroller.
My plan quickly changed. Once there, I immediately fell in love with a lightweight, stylish (retro!) Chicco. The price seemed reasonable for the quality and incredible ease of use. Plus, it’s oh, so smooth!
My “disposable” tune also changed. Chicco’s products are far from disposable. Not only did I end up using the Chicco longer than I expected, but my Chicco stroller ranks at the top of my favorite stroller purchases–and gee, I’ve made far too many of those (looking for “the one”) over the years.
Chicco makes more than strollers, too. Like ”smart” baby toys, such as Super Rocking Rings, travel seats, and colorful activity tables. If style is your thing, Chicco tends to use fashionable colors and patterns with its products, too–check out this high chair print.
Are you a Chicco fan, too?
Congrats to Jennifer, the random winner of the 1 year subscription to KIWI Magazine. Based on Jennifer’s comment, I’m guessing she’s going to be thrilled when KIWI shows up in her mailbox (”I’ve wanted this since I saw it in a dr’s office last year! We’re trying to “go green”, and this would be a great help!”).
I know it’s a bummer when you don’t win a contest–especially when the prize is something as cool as a subscription to KIWI–but you don’t have to miss out on all of the fun. Head over to KIWI and check out the goodies over there, including a sneak peak of what’s in the latest Jan/Feb 2008 edition (like the 2nd annual green baby shower gift guide!). While you’re there, you can always sign up for your very own subscription.
Thanks to everyone who played along. And, special thanks to Maxine Wolf, CEO/Publisher of KIWI. Please come back and visit the blog again sometime soon!
