Father's Day and Deployed Military Contest

No the contests aren't from me - I'm not giving anything away, but I sure wish I was!

5 Minutes For Mom has a couple of wonderful contests with some great prizes going on right now.

The first is the Blogs Can Change Lives HP Mini Giveaway - this time the nominations are for any deployed military member who could use a new laptop but doesn't have the financial resources to purchase one. The HP Mini 1000 is less than an inch thick and weighs just over 2 lbs- a perfect size for someone who is deploying to travel with this laptop and be able to stay connected to family back home.

Even though Joe is deployed I am not nominating our family, nor am I asking for anyone else to nominate us. As much as I would love a new laptop this contest is for the deployed military member and Joe does have a laptop of his own with him.

I just wanted to spread the word about this contest because I think it's a wonderful opportunity for a military family who can't afford to buy a laptop to possibly win one. So if you know of a military family going through a deployment and it would be a financial hardship to buy a laptop, please consider nominating that family.

The other contest is Father's Day HP MediaSmart Server Giveaway - Father's Day is right around the corner and I have no idea what to get Joe, but maybe I'll get lucky and win this! Although we both know it would be more for me then for him, because I have all those thousands of digital pictures to store! :)

Kind of like Kate's United Through Reading except United Through Laptopping, huh?

You're sweet to pass along info like this. Also, we sent cards to Daniel Thornhill. Thanks for that info, too.

Thanks for sharing this info, great give aways.

We found the dot markers at a local teachers supply store, they are a favorite with Junior because they are easy for him to hold onto.
