St. Patrick’s Day Round Robin 40 Prizes, $1,000 Giveaway – Ends 3/20

By: Donna Chaffins | Date: February 28, 2015 | Categories: Giveaways

March Round Robin Giveaway

If you live in the North, Northeast, East, or even more south, like me in Tennessee, I’m sure you’re over this snow, ice, and frigid cold temperatures. Today is the 6th straight school day in a role my son has been out of school due to weather/road conditions and it will more than likely be called off the rest of the week.

Although I really don’t mind my son being home… in fact, I love it, I know that many parents both work and it’s tough trying to manage getting to work and finding daycare.

In celebration of spring (which really cannot get here soon enough) and St. Patrick’s Day, I have joined up with 39 other bloggers to bring you a Round Robin Giveaway!

Here is how a Round Robin Giveaway works:

You will start here, with my blog, enter my giveaway and then click through to visit another blogger with a giveaway.  Each blogger will link to another blogger and another giveaway.

There are 40 of us total.  Once you get back around to me, you are done!!  Each blogger has a simple entry giveaway for you.  In total, we have $1,000 in prizes to giveaway.  There’s something for almost everyone.  Each giveaway entry may be a little different but there are NO widgets, forms, etc.  How awesome is that???  Let’s get to it…

Enter My Giveaway

I am offering my winner $25 in cash via PayPal. A little extra grocery money, gas money, buy yourself lunch, or spend it however you want!

Entry is easy… just leave me a comment below telling me a New Year resolution or goal you have for 2015 and how it’s going so far. That’s it!

Feel free to follow me on Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, G+, and Instagram through the Sunflower buttons at the top of my blog if you like. Optional entries – you can leave a comment for each social media follow you do. :)
