Valentine’s Day is approaching, and while we think that a bracelet is a lovely gift idea (cough, cough), we also understand that what most couples need is a little bit of time together. Between work, school, family, and household obligations, many people don’t feel it is possible to make the time to focus on one of the strongest and most valuable bonds in their life- their partner. And if time ever becomes available, money is often a scarce resource that prevents people from really being able to make their time together memorable or special in a unique way.
For some people, the reality of their relationship is that they and their partner are so busy that they are often unable to go do even the most mundane things together, such as grocery shopping or an appointment, let alone a special night out on the town. Many families on tight budgets consider their closest drive thru a special treat, never mind dinner out at a nice restaurant and a movie. It would be great to see someone in this position who could use some quality time with their partner be able to go out and enjoy themselves this Valentine’s Day, don’t you think?
Do you know a couple who would benefit from some quality time together? Is there a man or a woman in your life who you think would love to be able to take their partner out on a date but funding just won’t allow it? We’d love to help you help them this Valentine’s Day!
We are asking you to extend your time as an act of love to a special couple of your choice and nominate them to win a $100 MasterCard prepaid gift card to treat their special someone to a night out on the town.
What do you have to do to win? It’s simple!
-Tell us who you are nominating, and why they deserve to win!
If the couple you nominate wins, you have the option of including a special message for them, or you can ask us to send the gift anonymously (while stating its purpose, of course!) Let’s keep the love alive this year and help bring someone a little bit of love and togetherness!
This contest is open until Friday, January 27 at noon EST, so take your time to think, but don’t forget to come back!
Here’s an added bonus… If you want to send a little love our way, be sure to share our Facebook page with your friends and ask them to click like! You have one chance left to win a customized chainmaille charm bracelet with our fan count, and if you can show us the love in the form of a rising Frike number by February 14th, we may have a little something up our sleeves for you!
The winning entry is:
I would love to nominate my friend Laura and her husband Zeppo (Zoe's mommy and daddy)!
They were married less than a year ago and have been facing this battle of a lifetime with their sweet baby girl in the hospital.
This weekend Laura and Zeppo ventured out to Laura's (and my) hometown. It was the very first time since december 26th that Laura has left the hospital.
I think a night out for a nice dinner would be so amazing for them, to be able to have time to be normal for just a little while.
Thank you everyone for your participation in the contest! It is always so touching to see how many people are willing to take the time to nominate loved ones. Keep an eye out for more, and remember, if you get us a total of 3,300 Frikes by Valentine's Day, we have something for you!
