Gratitude Game Giveaway!! You could win a pig!

GRATITUDE - warmly or deeply appreciative of kindness or benefits received; very thankful. [Gratitude week begins here. Click for this week's Bliss Initiatives.]

I decided I wanted to make this Gratitude week a carnival of gratefulness and what carnival would be complete with out prizes? As I was thinking about what might be a worthwhile incentive for everyone to play I decided it would be really fun to help others as we get present to all the great things in our lives. SO what I will be doing this week is to encourage all of you to leave a message in my gratitude linky telling me what you are grateful for today. Every message will mean a donation made to because for every grateful message I will donate $1.00* (* I will donate up to a maximum of One Pig for this giveaway) and at the conclusion of the week I will pick one lucky commenter in who's name the gift will be given. In addition to the exceptional gift, possibly of one pig, the winner will also receive a small Everyday Bliss Gratitude Gift which I will reveal later in the week!

Find out more about by watching this video.

For those of you not familiar with, I heartily encourage you to visit their site. Several years ago my sister gave a family the gift of a goat in my name. That year I received no little package under the Christmas tree but it is probably one of my happiest in memory. Knowing that a family would be no longer starve because of "my gift" was the best gift I have ever received. Since that year we routinely buy each other the gift of geese, pigs and other animals as our way to acknowledge a birthday or holiday. 

After watching this video running water will top your gratitude list!

I started a  Gratitude Giving Game Registry over on the site for this game so if any of you are inspired to give a flock of geese or even a dollar or two you can do so there. Heifer uses a secure payment system through so you can be certain your gift is secure.

So what are you waiting for? Let me know why you are grateful today! 

Sign me up! I am grateful and I want to win that pig!

  1. This is SO wonderful, Kathy! What a GREAT organization - thank you so much for sharing the link to Heifer. Theresa :)

  2. This is a great organization! And I love that Alton Brown sponsors it!!! I <3 Alton Brown! LOL! We did this through a different organization and it is so wonderful to know you are helping in a truly meaningful way!

  3. Kathy this is wonderful (and I'm so excited that I might win me a pig!)

  4. This is a great idea! Here we have an organisation called 'Bothar' which does much the same thing, and we have such fun choosing animals and gifts to send around the world. Its a great way for the children to learn life lessons too.
    I am grateful for many things, food on the table, a house with glass in the windows, warm blankets, my children, summer, the mountains on my doorstep...too many to choose one!


Thank you "very so much" (the construct I stole from my 3 year old!) for your comments! I reply to every comment. I will ALWAYS reply over here on the blog so if you haven't heard from directly please do check back here. If you become a Disqus member you will be automatically updated via email as well!
