Fred Meyer Design A Bag Contest (Giveaway!)

You might remember, I told you about the Kroger family of stores design a bag giveaway last year. Well, this year they are doing it again in honor of Earth Day!

Just simply visit the Design a Reusable Bag website and choose which store you shop at most. (obviously, it's Fred Meyer here, but I know many of you are from different areas of the country!) From April 12 through May 21, design your own reusable grocery bag with Fred Meyer’s (or whatever your Kroger store of choice is) easy-to-use design tool. Any visitor can stop by and vote for your bag, where one grand prize winner will receive $1,000 and could potentially see their bag design sold in stores. Four finalists will receive $250 Kroger Co. gift cards and five runners-up will receive $100 Kroger Co. gift cards. Every Shopper’s Card holder who submits a design will receive a credit for a free reusable shopping bag. (So we get a freebie out of it)

And even better? When you create a design, you can purchase it on reusable bags and more by sending it to CafePress.com. For every printed item sold, $1 will be donated to the National Parks Conservation Association. With Mother's Day coming up, maybe you'd like to create a bag in honor of her?

Ready, set - go design one! Who couldn't use an extra $1K right now? It's super easy to do! I'll update my post here soon with pictures of the bag I designed!

Win it! Thanks to Kroger, I have a $25 gift card to any of the Kroger company of stores (including QFC and Fred Meyer, for my local peeps, Frys, Dillons, and Ralph's etc for those of you living in other states) to give away! To enter, go design a bag and then leave the link here, so you can get votes! (If you've already designed a bag this year, just let us know what your bag number is so you can still get some votes! We can vote for each bag once a day!) I know, it's a little more work to enter this giveaway, but you do get a free bag out of it, and a donation is made - karma!

As always, if you have completed the first entry above, you can also receive extra entries for:

-Subscribing to my feed OR following my blog
-Blogging about this giveaway with a link back
-Tweeting about this giveaway (leave the link or include @psychotichouse)

That's up to four (4) possible entries! Giveaway ends May 1st, 2010 at 11:59 PST. US Only, sorry. :( Please leave your email address in your comment, or have it available in your profile so I can contact you if you've won. Winners drawn via Random.org.

I received a $25 gift card to create a bag and order it. One reader will win a $25 gift card, good at the Kroger company of stores thanks to the giveaway sponsor.

There is a bag my sweet little daughter created at age 5 that is so charming. She went on a trip with her siblings and me to visit several National Parks. She was disconcerted by the trash and soda cans people would pitch on the ground. She ran around picking the refuse left by others and threw it all away in trashcans. When she got home, she drew darling smiley faces on brown paper bags and at the bottom of each bag she wrote, "Feed me please." She was determined to hand them out during our next trip to the National Parks to anyone she saw pitching litter on the ground. I always thought her designs make a sweet reuseable bag or a decoration for trash cans in the parks.

Thanks.
