bento goodie GIVEAWAY {to benefit Alex} #2!

The voting for the Kallas family is going great, guys! As of this morning there were less than 400 votes separating them from the #2 spot in the contest! :) Please keep the votes coming! As a little incentive I dug up some stuff to giveaway...

First off, you get to choose a box. I have three for the winner to choose from:

You can choose this cool robot box. This is a great box! I have two of them myself, and picked up a 3rd to offer here. :)

Or you can choose this cute Lightening McQueen from Cars bento box. It comes with two inner removable dishes, too!
Cars box

The third option is this sweet girly box. It says "cherry pink" on it and has the cutest little polka dots. I just love polka dots. :)

Along with your box choice you will get this bento stuff....

A fork, spoon, and knife set featuring some cute words of wisdom (LOL)-
fork, knife, spoon set!

A set of animal picks (15 pieces) and a box of cocktail forks (75 pieces!)-
picks and more picks!

A set of 4 cute little sauce cups and two silicone cups with little animals peeking over the rim! -
sauce cups and silicone cups!

Quick recap! You get your choice of box:
pick a box, any box!

Plus all this:
bento goodies!


How to enter this rad bento giveaway:

Same drill as before!

1. go to the Pigeon Forge Taking Vacations Back contest page.

2. click the "votes" option and then the "sort" button. This should sort the nominees so that the ones with the most votes are at the top. If this doesn't work (sometimes it doesn't work when I do it on my iPhone), if you click the spot at the very top of the page where it says "vote for a family" and then do the sort by votes it should work then -- sometimes it's tricky. I'm sorry for that.

3. Find "Andrea K. - Spring Hill, Tn (6/1/2010)". This is the Kallas family, they've been hanging out in the 3rd place spot, but are gaining on #2!! Next click where it says "vote" right to the left of Andrea's name. That's it! You've voted!

4. Come back to THIS POST and leave a comment saying that you have voted. You can leave a comment for each vote you cast for the Kallas family. Vote there, leave a comment here. Vote there again, leave another comment here.

5. Come back and do it all over again every day. You can vote from your computer and your phone. You can vote from work. You can vote from the library. Hop on your neighbors unsecured wireless internet and vote again. ;-) Do what you gotta do, but please vote.
Leave another comment on my giveaway post for every vote you cast. More votes = more comments = more entries to the giveaway = more chances for you to win!

If you are new here or for some reason have no idea who Alex is or why I'm asking you to vote for the Kallas family, you can read the back story here.

This bento goodie giveaway (#2!) will run for one week. I will close comments on Wednesday, July 21, between 10-11pm CST. One winner will be chosen by random.org.

It has come to my attention that on the Pigeon Forge contest page that it says the person who nominates a family to the contest wins a vacation too and I have been asked if I am the person who nominated the family. No, I did not nominate the Kallas family. I will not win a vacation if they win this contest. I'm just trying to help them out the best way I am able - through this blog, by reaching out to all of you.

Thank you, and please, keep the votes coming! :)

Note posted Wednesday, July 21 @ 11:12pm - Comments are now closed, thanks for your votes!!! Love you guys! :)

It let me vote again. I guess b/c it's after midnight East Coast time.

Anyway, while I'm excited to have Alex's family now in second place (!), it feels a little awkward and sad to be celebrating too. After all, I can't exactly say, "In your face!" to Amber (now pushed to 3rd place) who lost her husband on Easter Sunday. I wish everyone could win!
