This post is incredibly exciting… I’m announcing the biggest giveaway in Keep It Up, David history! And it’s based around one of my favorite things… fruit! Here’s how it came about:
**NOTE: The deadline for entering this contest has passed. Good luck to everyone that entered!**
Last month, my sister Laura sent me an bouquet from Edible Arrangement for my birthday. It was a wonderful gift, and I ended up sharing photos of it on the blog, as well as on Facebook and Twitter. I shared this picture of the bouquet when it arrived…
…and this pic of what it looked like ten minutes later:
By the next day, I had eaten the rest of the fruit, and it was deeeeelicious (the orange bowl, by the way, found a new home on my end table). And my tweets caught the attention of the folks at Edible Arrangements, who tweeted back, saying they enjoyed the pictures I shared, and that they had checked out my blog. Awesome! Next thing I know, an email from them arrived with an offer to sponsor a giveaway on my site! How cool is that?!?
Before I get into the details, I just wanted to welcome anyone that’s visiting Keep It Up, David for the first time. Thank you for stopping by! I invite you to take a look around. I blog about health and weight loss (I’ve lost over 160 pounds and counting), and share what I’m eating, how I’m exercising, and all my struggles and successes. You can see lots of ‘Before’ and ‘Current’ photos in the Photo Gallery, read about my history with weight on the My Story So Far page, watch my appearance on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” and check out some of My Favorite Posts. If you like what you see, consider following me on Facebook or Twitter (they’re great ways to learn about new blog posts), or you can get new posts via email by hitting the “Sign Me Up” button that’s below the head-to-toe shot of me on the right.
Let’s get into the giveaway details, shall we? I’m giving away a brand-new fresh fruit bouquet from Edible Arrangements that’s not even available for sale yet! It’s their Blooming Hearts bouquet, which has pineapple, strawberries and grapes, all arranged in a keepsake green ceramic container. Check out the arrangement on Edible Arrangement’s website.
Retail price: $68. For the winner of this giveaway: FREE!
Mother’s Day is coming up… How great would it be to give mom something healthy this year? Plus, fruit is so much tastier than flowers. Just sayin’.
Here’s How to Enter – It’s Simple!
- Leave a comment in the comment section below, saying who you’d share this fresh fruit bouquet from Edible Arrangements with and why (it’s perfectly all right if you don’t want to share it with anyone – I didn’t share mine!). That’s one entry.
- If you click here and “like” Edible Arrangements on Facebook, you can come back and leave a second comment, which enters you a second time.
- If you click here and follow Edible Arrangements on Twitter, you can leave a third comment, which enters you a third time.
That’s it – three entries per person! And the entries must be comments on this post – entries made via Facebook comment, tweet, email, singing telegram or smoke signal will be tossed out like yesterday’s pineapple rinds.
Deadline for Entries: 11:59pm PST on Thursday, April 26, 2012.
I’ll announce the winner on Friday, April 27, 2012. I’ll use the random number generator at http://www.random.org to pick a winning blog comment, and the winner will have 24 hours to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to claim their prize. If it goes unclaimed after 24 hours, I’ll pick another winner and reset the clock for 24 hours, and so on.
Once the winner has emailed me, I will put them in touch with the fine folks at Edible Arrangements, who will help arrange the prize.
