Things Remembered Giveaway

Disclosure: I did not receive compensation or product to facilitate the review/giveaway.

Things Remembered has been around for awhile. They make beautiful, high quality items that you can order online (they have some great online exclusives), and you may have come across one of their stores in your local mall.  They offer engraving for everything they sell as well. I know we have purchased several of their items, including one recently for a wedding we attended, and these gifts are always well received.

Things Remembered also partners with the Make-A-Wish Foundation, and has done so since 1997 when a little girl named Elysia wanted a personalized gift made so that she could be remembered.  Since then, they have raised more than $6.4 million to help grant the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions.

Every item you purchase from the Make-A-Wish gift selections sends $2 more to the Make-A-Wish Foundation, with a minimum donation of $150,000 guaranteed. Your commitment to family and memories help Things Remembered grant the wishes of those who have faced a lot of hurt and tears. It is a wonderful organization to be a part of, and kudos to Things Remembered for taking such a big step up to the plate, and staying there.

Take a look around the Things Remembered website.  The Make-A-Wish tab is at the top, and you can browse through the items that are being offered this season to help support donations. There is also an option to make a $1, $5, or $10 donation to the Make-A-Wish foundation, if you would like to participate without purchasing an item.

Many thanks to Things Remembered for offering two giveaway items to you, as thanks for taking the time out to learn more about them, and about their partnership with Make-A-Wish.

Giveaway Item #1

Make-A-Wish Snowflake Ornament

The first item is a Make-A-Wish snowflake ornament. The description from Things Remembered is as follows:

Our Make-A-Wish Snowflake ornament for 2013 is a holiday treasure that's sure to be a cherished addition to their tree. It features an enchanting, superbly detailed swing snowflake, resplendent with seasonal sparkle with glittering crystals. It sits atop a heart you can personalize with warm holiday wishes. Comes in an heirloom cream and gold window presentation box


Giveaway Item #2

Trumpet Snowman Musical Water Globe

The second item for giveaway is from their store (it is not a Make-A-Wish item). It is the Trumpet Playing Snowman. The description from the Things Remembered website is as follows:


♫ Plays "Let it Snow"

He's holly and jolly and lots of fun! He'll add even more of a smile to their face with your personalization. This is a cheery keepsake they'll bring out year after year, and think of you every time they look at your engraving. Not intended for children aged 12 and under.

The first name randomly drawn by Rafflecopter will get the snowflake ornament.

The second name randomly drawn by Rafflecopter will get the musical water globe.

Each winner will receive a certificate good up to $25 for free engraving.

US Entrants only.

You can learn more about Things Remembered by visiting their website.

You can also follow them on Facebook and/or Twitter.

When you are considering which charities to donate to this holiday season, I hope you will keep the Make-A-Wish Foundation in mind.
