Walmart’s 12 Days Of Giving

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Walmart for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.


This holiday season, Walmart will be giving a total of $1.5 million in grants to benefit local communities across the country and provide basic need items like food, diapers, coats, baby formula and other cold weather clothing to those in need.

During the campaign, Americans will have an opportunity to voice which organizations they feel need support and deserve to win a portion of the $1.5 million in grants.

So between November 1 and November 18, you can vote for local nonprofits on Facebook. On December 10, Walmart will start the 12 Days of Giving by announcing funding to the winning nonprofits that were nominated on Facebook.

Visit the Live Better application on Walmart’s Facebook page to start and simply fill up the following details:


  • Nonprofit name
  • Nonprofit contact info
  • Nonprofit website
  • Photo (optional)

That’s it!

Take your time deciding which non profit organization you nominate. There are photos and information on each and every one of them so you will have an idea about them.

I would like to invite you all my readers to nominate a local nonprofit and vote one of your choice. Please leave a comment as well and share the nonprofit that you nominated.

As for me, I chose Cradles To Crayons because when I saw the photo of a kid, it was a no brainer for me to choose that one right away. I always have a soft heart for kids especially disadvantaged children who need the utmost care. So I hope they will win the grant!

Feel the spirit of Christmas. All it takes is a little of your time to go through the nomination process. Once you nominate a non profit organization, post it in your timeline wall in Facebook so others can also find out and vote for their nomination.

First things first. What does layaway mean. This is a term used as a popular way to pay for items that you might not have the money in hand for. Not everybody is rich. There will always come a time where we may not have the money in hand to buy somethign that we want. Or need.

I am sure you have experienced it too. I remember wanting to buy a pair of shoes but as cash strapped as I was that time, I never saw those same pair of shoes when I went back to buy it later on.

The Kmart Layaway program also gives this same option to shoppers to put selected items in their online catalog on layaway.

Now, you might tell yourself that this is already being done by Toys R Us, Walmart and Best Buy. True. But so far, the difference that I found is that I found better and more items to put on layaway.

This big free layaway giveaway all the more makes it exciting.

It sure looks like KMart is prepping for the Holiday season. This giveaway aims to ensure a layaway giveaway per store per week every week from September 9 – November 17, 2012.
Considering that is already the BER month, Christmas is not far off. I have already eyed some potential items in my layaway for holiday gifts for my family and friends. Check out the screenshot below.
I have never won something, not even once whether big or small. I hope this time I can get the chance to win big during Kmart’s Big Layaway Giveaway!
Check out this KMart layaway grid to see how they stack up against other competitors.

The belVita Breakfast Challenge At

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Kraft Foods for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.


At, users can enter a contest to win a $500 Walmart gif card when they complete all three challenges.

The three challenges entail having to answer a question and answer portion which acts more like an educational section and teaches you how belVita biscuits can help, a scavenger hunt where you pick items that are necessary to start the day off and a tile matching game just for fun.

This contest is to promote belVita’s new breakfast biscuits packed with four lightly sweet, crunchy biscuits to help people stay fueled up all morning long. Two new flavors: Cinnamon Brown Sugar and Chocolate with 18g-20g of whole grain per serving is the perfect complement to a complete and light breakfast.

These belVita Breakfast Biscuits are made specifically to start the day off with nutritious energy and specially baked to release energy regularly and continuously in our bodies. This means having nutritious sustained energy that lasts all morning.

The secrets behind them are fiber and vitamin B and they do not contain any high fructose corn syrup, no partially hydrogenated oils and no artificial flavors or sweeteners.

You can find belVita in the cookie aisle and at the checkout counter and although it is located in the cookie aisle, belVita is a breakfast biscuit.

So what are you waiting for? Visit Walmart’s online portal, take the three challenges and enter your email address to get a chance to win a $500 Walmart gift card!

Disclaimer: NO PURCHASE NECESSARY. Open to residents of the 50 U.S. and D.C., 18 years and older. Visit to enter and see Official Rules. Ends 9/15/12.
