The Big 5 Year Blogiversary Giveaway!

What do you get when you combine 
16 awesome sponsors and a 5 year blogiversary? 


Sponsored by 

Natural Products Network
Earth Mama Angel Baby

with donated prizes from:

Holistic Parenting Magazine
Elizabeth Hamilton-Guarino
Wise Wife Soaps
Happy Baby Company
Ava Anderson Non-Toxic
Soapbox Soaps
Lynne Dempsey
BANDY Woodworks
Eat Cleaner

So here's the deal. I launched this blog on August 20, 2009. Since then, the community has grown and changed. I am ever grateful to all the new members, and enormously thankful to those of you who've been with me from the start (and have chosen to stick around!). 

To honor all of you, I joined with the above sponsors to offer you a one-of-a-kind giveaway. Unfortunately, and sadly, because of some of the sponsors stipulations, this giveaway is open to those of you in the US only. Of course, if my Canadian friends, and there are quite a few of you, have US connections, you can always enter and have your prizes shipped to a US address.

Rather than giving away various items to various people, this year, I'm offering the entire prize package to ONE lucky community member. The winner will be chosen via and Rafflecopter and announced here on the blog on Wednesday, September 3rd. I will also email the winner, who will have 48 hours to respond. If I do not receive a reply by then, an alternate winner will be chosen. Fair enough?

And to sweeten the pot, I am including a $50 VISA gift card, taking the value of the giveaway to over $500! 

Here are the prizes:

Didn't I tell you it was an awesome giveaway?! Enter on the Rafflecopter below. The contest runs through midnight on September 2, 2014. Entering is simple. You get one entry for each page you like or account you follow. Grab 1 or all 32 entries. Then get an extra 10 for sharing the giveaway on Twitter and another 10 for commenting below. While I don't usually do mandatory entries, I'm making an exception for this giveaway and am requiring everyone who enters to join the Green Grandma FB community. For those of you who are already part of the community, this is a freebie for you.

I hope you will discover some amazing new products by visiting the sponsors' websites.

Have fun and 
Good Luck!

Plant it Forward

This month, you can help farmers in Africa "Plant it Forward." And all you have to spend is ten cents per tree. This will help farmers in countless ways.

Imagine 500 or so trees growing in some of the most desolate areas of Africa. When we partner with farmers, they're able to grow forest gardens -- combining the best of a forest and a garden on one small piece of land. These simple ecosystems help in three ways:
  1. They increase farmers' incomes
  2. They provide food for farmers and their families
  3. They protect their environment
It's a fantastic deal! Many of the farmers are already "planting it forward," teaching others the skills they've learned. You can learn more here. And please, follow the progress of these programs by liking Trees for the Future on Facebook.

And now, through the end of August, Eco Optics, a brand by Modo Eyewear, will match every donation, up to a total of $15,000. That means a mere $25 can plant 500 trees and $50 can start a forest garden. Do you realize the impact of that small gift? It means you'll be providing food and ongoing income for a family in Africa for years to come!
Let's do this, folks! Click here to donate.

Sharing causes I believe in,

In the distance

Every mother is like Moses. 
She does not enter 
the promised land.
She prepares a world
she will not see.
