Giveaway: $10 Walmart eGift Card – Annual Quarter of Kindness Giveaway – 17 Winners!

December 13, 2012



UPDATE:
This giveaway has ended. Winners will be announced soon!

Back in 2009, a small act of kindness from a stranger on a day that I truly needed it sparked me to vow that each year that Coupon Geek is up and running, I would do a “Quarter of Kindness” giveaway on the site in a hope to spark my readers to give truly from their hearts and help those in need. This will be the fourth year that I’ve done this giveaway. Here’s the story that triggered it:

It was an incredibly cold day and I was shopping with my two very young kids, as I could no longer put off buying groceries. I had stopped at Aldi in hopes of saving some money on our grocery budget. As I was walking towards the carts to put in the quarter deposit, a kind older woman handed me hers and when I offered her my quarter, she smiled so sweetly and said, “Merry Christmas” and walked away without taking it. Something so simple truly made my day. And I want to take that simple quarter, and stretch that kindness annually.

So while the 17 winners of this giveaway will receive a $10 Walmart eGift Card—they are not allowed to spend it on themselves, but on someone in need. It can be anyone they choose, from a charity, food bank, neighbor, friend/family member that’s down on their luck, etc. This is just my way of helping my readers make someone’s day, just like mine was years ago.

Please remember when you go about your day, be it during the holiday season or any day, that you must never underestimate the power of a simple act of kindness. That woman’s simple quarter gesture has already turned into so much more than she ever would have expected–and I am going to make sure that it grows each year, so I’ve added more winners to a total of 17 this year!

I would donate it to our local Toys For Tots campaign. I have given as many toys as I can, so an extra donation would be welcome, there is such a need.

I would use it towards a gift for my friend with 8 kids.

I’ve been unemployed for over a year, but by using your site and others, I’ve been able to pinch my pennies. So, I picked a “wish” for a little boy, off of a Wish Tree at the mall and he has asked for a bike. If I won the $10 gift card, I’d use it to help me purchase him a 12″ bike from Walmart for $29.99. With the $10 I’ll save, I’ll be able to buy him a few extras he won’t expect. Thank you for your consideration.

What a wonderful Giveaway. A family near by recently had a fire and lost everything. Then what little was salvageable was stolen by thieves. I know times are hard for everyone but this is just so sad especailly for the children ages 4 and 6. If I were to win I would match the 10.00 and purchase something for each child.

May each of us have a Blessed and Merry Christmas.

I would use it to help pay for Christmas gifts for my family. We are not doing a big Christmas this year, money is very tight. This would help our budget.
