I can’t believe Thanksgiving is coming so soon! This year has gone by so quick!
Once again I am teaming up with Cooking Planit, this time for something completely different!
First, I would like to tell you about my inspiration, my grandmother. She passed away in 2008, but all of her life, she thought only of others, lived at home with her mother and disabled aunt up until my great-grandmother’s death in 1996, helped to raise me, drove all of us anywhere we needed to go ( I come from a line of non-drivers, at 38 I still don’t have my license!), did everything for us all of the time, and never complained. She may not have been a hero in this sense, but she was mine!
Do you know an unsung hero, someone who does for others without thinking of themselves, whether it be collecting clothing for the needy, doing volunteer work, or someone who performs a heroic action often without a second thought? If so, this giveaway is for them, and you!
Here is your chance to honor that person by telling their story and how to do it:
** Once there, you will be asked to tell their story in 300 words or less. You can find the complete set of rules on their Thanksgiving Story Contest page. Describe what they do that makes them a hero in your eyes and the eyes of your community. Someone that inspires you!
5 winners will be selected from all eligible entries. $100 Visa Gift card will be awarded to the story author (that’s YOU!) & $250 to their Hidden Hero (story subject). (10 prizes awarded in total; 5 story author + 5 hidden hero)
In addition, the first place winner will be given the opportunity to select a local charity to which Cooking Planit will donate $1000.
Submit your story between now and November 1, 2013.
Winners will be chosen based on the inspiration in the story, and how it empowers others.
