We're In This Together - Service Boot Camp Giveaway


All right now, friends.

It's almost February.  Around here that means that it's time for another Service Boot Camp.

Many of you have joined me for Service Boot Camps in the past.  Together, we:

Raised $700 for Haiti...
Made 200 Journals for Grieving Military Widows...
and Served Others Every Day for 30 Days.

For this Service Boot Camp, we are going to embark on a mission to write letters to people who have helped us, inspired us, served us, or made a difference in our lives or the lives of those around us...THANKING THEM for their efforts.

It's a simple thing, really, writing a letter.

But it can be a huge thing for the recipient of your sincere expressions of love and gratitude.

Hopefully, you'll join me every day in February, as we try to make the world a little better with every letter that we write.

To get us prepped for this Service Boot Camp, I have some excellent giveaways lined up.

The first one is from The Canton Box Company, who has generously donated the card that you see above.  They have some really amazing things in their shop, so I do hope you'll check them out!  Really...amazing!

In order to be entered to win this lovely card you may do any of the following:

1.  COMMENT on this post.
2.  PLEDGE to join us in letter writing Service Boot Camp.
3. Visit The Canton Box Company.
4. Link to this Giveaway on FB OR LIKE THIS POST
5. Be a follower of my blog.

Please leave a comment for each entry that you do.

I will announce the winner of this card tomorrow.

  3. I'm so excited to do this! Once every few years I write cards out to all my family members letting them know how much I love and appreciate them! This time I already have a couple of people in mind that I have been meaning to write to and just haven't made it a priority! I can't wait!

  6. Jocelyn, you are my hero. I actually had a "Jocelyn" moment last week, one where I ended up thinking "I will do X with my kid when he's old enough to understand, not because it's easy or will be fun but because that will be a good conversation to have early on with my child!" That probably doesn't make any sense at all, but it was a great moment for me and I attribute it all to your awesome gems you share here about how you teach your children. So thanks. :)

  11. I am super excited about this! It'll be my first service boot camp. And now I'm thinking of Sound of Music:) Anyway, I have a little corner of my white board devoting to writing names down of people I need to write a thank you/letter to and I only every actually sit down once every three months to do it. Shameful. Now I can knock that list out and more starting tomorrow. Woot!

  14. QUESTION - For the boot camp will you be writting a letter EVERY DAY? Is that how it will work? Great idea! Just want to make sure I can do it if I pledge to do it! :D Thanks!!

  15. I can pledge one letter, I love writing handwritten notes and mailing them to people, they are always so appreciative when they receive one. I'm shy in person, but I don't mind writing so it's a great way for me to express myself to those around me. Great idea!
