Party with the Dupage Mamas!



Today's the Big Day!




Starting today, Dupage Mamas is officially launched - the cat's out of the bag, the lid's off the jar. We've been keeping this a secret for far too long and now we're excited to tell the world! And what better way than with six straight days of giveaways?!

You may have just sent in a check to Uncle Sam - or you may be waiting for him to send one to you. Either way, these giveaways are sure to brighten your day.

Today, Wednesday, we're giving away a free massage from Massage Therapy for Women and Families. Check back later today for details.

Thursday we're giving away something from Catherine's favorite children's book publisher, Barefoot Books.

Friday you'll have a chance to win a gift certificate to The Homemade Gourmet who makes Farrah's all time favorite brownies, not to mention lots of other yummy stuff.

Monday's giveaway is a beautiful handmade sling from Farrah's Baby Love Slings, which neither Farrah nor Catherine can imagine living without.

Tuesday we're giving away not one but two fantastic kid's books (which both Cath and Farrah love) from Tyndale.

Wednesday is not just the one week anniversary of DupageMamas, its also Earth Day! So we'll be giving away something from Ecostore.

Here's how it will work:
  • Each giveaway will last for a week, with the winner being drawn at random and announced one week after it opens.
  • To enter any individual giveaway, simply leave a comment telling us a little bit of who you are. The point of DupageMamas is to build community so please introduce yourself!
  • Be sure to leave an email address or website where we can contact you if you win. Of course, check back to see the announcement too.
  • If you want to double your chances for one of the giveaways, email the news to your friends, link to it on your blog, or post it to Facebook or Twitter.
  • You don't have to be in Dupage, or be a Mama, to win. But several of the prizes will require you to be "in person" (the massage, for example), and we can only ship within the USA.
So...here we go, time to party! Bring all your friends and I hope you have as much fun as we're having.

Dupage Mamas is launched! (Oh, and my taxes are finally done too!)

(Update: remember - to enter a contest you must leave a comment on that individual post.  Come each day to enter that day's giveaway!)

Yea for launch day! Great work, ladies! I'll plan to post a link on FB and see if I can help get the word out this week.
Love,
Kristen (mother of 3, living in Warrenville, and in great need of a sunny day to be outside!)

Congratulations on the launch of such a wonderful resource for the "mamas" of DuPage County. I hope that this will truly become a community for women to share their successes and struggles of motherhood. Thanks so much for creating a much needed outlet!

I'm so excited for this (even though I don't live anywhere near Dupage county!) Congratulations on the 'grand opening'!

Thanks for including me in the conversation! I was just wondering today why I choose to be isolated in a world where so many are hungry for company. Thanks for putting community at my fingertips!

This is a wonderful idea! I'm excited to see where it goes even though Dupage county is but a fond memory for me : )

Mary April 15, 2009 at 9:13 PM
