Do-gooder Giveaway!

7 Jan

LOCCWe’re officially one week into 2013. Usually I’d be missing the holidays by now but with everything that went down last year, I for one am happy to bid 2012 goodbye.

One silver lining last year came from News Anchor Ann Curry though – the 26 Acts of Kindness campaign she inspired after the Newton shootings. A simple idea for anyone to commit 26 acts of kindness in honor of each life lost that morning. A simple idea with the hashtag #26Acts that went viral.

In hopes of carrying those acts on through the New Year and beyond, I’m offering up some motivation!

We all love L’Occitane, right? Right.

Just be one of the first 10 people to comment or Tweet me with an act of kindness you’ve committed in 2013 and you’ll win some sweet limited edition L’Occitane products.

Think Date Bouquet, Mango, Roses, body butter, hand cream and lip balm.

It pays to do good.


And the Winner is…

Special thanks to all the readers who shared Flip video camera-less moments! 

From the regretful mother who missed capturing her toddler’s very first sarcastic comment on film (shame!), to the guy who wished he had a Flip cam in-hand to proove his mother actually fainted during his engagement announcement (classic!) – we were thrilled to reward our favorites with a brand new Flip video camera. 

Of all the entries, the following story out of downtown Los Angeles felt most share-worthy…

“Recently my mother was given a short-time to live. Our family has since taken every opportunity to spend with her. Last weekend, we took the grandchildren and mom up to the Disney center for a picnic. The kids packed the picnic basket with all their favorites – Oreos and Juice Boxes and Bologna. It was a perfect day, a guy was sitting standing on the stairs playing his sax, the kids were running around the tress on the patio, tourists were walking back and forth. In that moment, I had wished I could have stopped time and sat inside that happiness forever. I wasnt armed with a camera and regret it to this day. 

Best Wishes, Danielle C.”

Danielle received a personalized Flip Video camera – plus a VIP box of the latest beauty products – compliments of L’Oreal Paris.
