Celebrate Fall Fix It Week with Elmer’s on Facebook and Enter This Giveaway for an Elmer’s Prize Pack!
Posted Oct 05 2010 8:47am
October 11-15 is Fall Fix It Week on Elmer’s Facebook page ! During that week, they’ll be providing tips and advice on whether you should toss, recycle or fix your broken household items. They’ll be posting several “scenarios” on their page highlighting typical household items that were broken during the summer months. And you’ll have the opportunity to weigh in on tossing, fixing, donating or recycling it. As a member of Elmer's Expert Moms Panel, I'll be joining you there!
Elmer’s is also offering you an opportunity NOW to join in the fun and enter to win an Elmer’s prize pack! Here’s how: Think of something broken in your home that you’re not sure whether it’s worth fixing or should be tossed, recycled or donated. Leave a comment on this post describing your broken object. (If you’ve posted a picture of it on your blog or elsewhere, feel free to leave a link, too. You may submit multiple scenarios, but please leave a separate comment for each.) Hurry to do this by 11:59 PM EST on Saturday, October 9, before Elmer’s Fall Fix It Week begins because I’m going to send the best three scenarios (in my humble opinion) to Elmer’s where they’ll be posted on their Facebook page during Fall Fix It Week!
During the week of October 11th, visit the Elmer’s Facebook page every day and post your verdict to “toss it or fix it” for each scenario posted. (Elmer’s will post them around 9:00 a.m.) If you’re on Twitter, we’d also love for you to tweet your verdict directed at @Elmers and using the hashtags: #FallFixIt and #fixortoss. By 3:00 p.m. each day, Elmer’s will post their official response as to whether they would recommend fixing or tossing the item.
After Fall Fix It Week ends on October 15, I will make an announcement on this blog of the three people/scenarios from this page who were sent to Elmer’s and will win the Elmer’s Prize Packs! (I’ll notify you by email, too, so be sure your email address is on your comment or Blogger page.) If you were visiting Elmer’s Facebook page during Fall Fix It Week, you may have already seen your scenario posted!
Remember: The deadline to enter your scenario here is Saturday, October 9, 2010 at 11:59 PM EST. (You do not have to visit Facebook or tweet to enter this giveaway, but we'd love for you to do so and join in on the fun!)
DISCLOSURE: I received a bottle of all-purpose glue from Elmer’s as a fun way to launch this project! No other compensation was provided.
