I’m sure you have all seen something similar to this circulating around the web at some point. I have seen several versions of this same thing. This really hits home with me because I run a work from home business, several of my friends run work from home businesses, and I truly believe that we need to return to an era of community and helping one another succeed!
Who does it benefit when we are just helping the billionaires get richer? Buying from a mom and pop shop, or from a mom/dad run business does several things; it helps a family, helps a community, and in the end, really helps you! You will feel great for helping out someone who is just trying to make a better life, trying to put their kids through school, or give their family a roof over their head instead of just helping to fatten the wallet of those who have already “made it.”
This is why I have decided to feature a business of the month, every month here on my blog. This business has not paid any fee to be featured, they may have donated a prize for you to win (which they pay for out of their own pocket), but I wanted to be able to help those who are working hard to bring a better quality of life to their family.
This month’s featured business will be AtHome America. Yes, this is my own personal business, but since I am just starting out this feature I have to start somewhere. I will post a feature article showcasing the company, as well as a prize package to be won. (Post to come at a later date)
This month’s prize package will be winner’s choice, in which you can pick 1 out of 4 available prize packages. All prize packages are valued between $35-$45 before shipping (click photos to view larger).
BLOGGERS: If you would like to get in on the giveaway opportunity you can! I will be collecting a small fee to help cover the cost of the items for the giveaway along with shipping. Remember, every item that is being given away is paid for solely by the featured business, so joining in on the giveaway helps reduce their out of pocket cost, while at the same time gaining exposure for your own blog by getting a spot on the entry form! If you are not a blogger stay tuned for our featured business post for your chance to win these items!
If you are interested in joining in on this giveaway, please fill out the form listed below. There will be a simple $2.00 fee that goes completely toward the item cost and shipping. If I collect more than the cost of the item, the additional funds can be used by the winner to buy an item of their choice from the featured business (or possibly paypal cash). Dates for the first giveaway event will be May 4th – May 31st.
