Dollar General's Every Day Heroes Program Honors Mothers {Procter & Gamble Prize Pack Giveaway}

Even though Mother's Day 2012 has come and gone, I've always thought that moms truly deserve to be honored throughout the entire year. There's just no one who fills that special spot like Mom! Therefore, when it comes to campaigns that celebrate the importance of moms and all that they do, I'm happy to support them.

This month, Dollar General and Procter & Gamble have teamed up for a great way to recognize moms who do extraordinary things every day: the true Every Day Heroes who have made sacrifices for their families and their communities. To honor moms, Dollar General is inviting customers to upload videos describing why their moms are "Every Day Heroes."

Every Day Heroes

Videos can be submitted and viewed at www.dollargeneral.com/everydayheroes, where there are also prizes being awarded as a part of this campaign!

To enter, simply purchase participating products (from popular brands such as Pampers, Charmin, Tide, Bounty, Crest and more) and submit the special code on the package to the contest website. By doing so, you just might win the grand prize trip for four to the Olympic Training Center, one of five Panasonic Flat Screen Televisions or one of 500 $10 Visa gift cards!

Olympics sweepstakes

So, what makes your mom (or you!) an Every Day Hero? Upload a video today to Dollar General's website and you might end up doing more than simply making Mom very proud — you might win her the trip of a lifetime! But hurry, this contest ends on May 31, so don't miss your opportunity to show Mom just how much you care.

And, thanks to the generosity of Procter & Gamble, one person will get to enjoy a sampling of products that help with every day life around the house, because...

One lucky person will win a Dollar General P&G Prize Pack*!

*Prize Pack includes: Tide Pods, Febreze Auto Air Freshener, Always Radiant, Tampax Radiant, Secret Coco Butter Clear Gel, Old Spice Champion Deodorant and a Dollar General chip clip.

(Enter with the Rafflecopter form below. If you have any questions or problems entering, there is a video tutorial found here that can help.)

A big thank you to Procter & Gamble for providing an Every Day Heroes Prize Pack for me as well as for one lucky giveaway winner. The opinions shared are my own and honest and if you really need to see more, click here to see how I roll.

Moms are everyday heroes because they do so many thankless jobs which they do not get paid for. They are there for their children and are so selfless..but oftentimes their deeds go ignored. I am 31 years old, but I still tell my mom "thank you" for everything she has done, as I am so appreciative of the little things. She is amazing!
