Enter to win a Tag Reading System -- and an all-expenses paid trip to Hollywood!



The Tag. Give. Read. program giveaway on Bonggamom Finds has ended, and one lucky reader has won a Leapfrog Tag kit! Even better, one lucky kindergarten teacher will be receiving a Tag classroom kit -- no, make that two, because Leapfrog also gave me a classroom kit to donate to one of our local schools. Some kinders at Roosevelt Elementary School in Redwood City are going have such a fun time learning to read with those Tag units! I'm so thrilled that I was able to participate in getting more Tags into more classrooms to get kids excited about reading, and I'm so grateful to Leapfrog for making it all possible.

As I mentioned in my giveaway post, the Tag. Give. Read. program has been tremendously successful -- so successful, in fact, that La-La-Land is jumping on the bandwagon! This is great news, because anything that celebrities do gets lots of media attention, and the more awareness we can generate for the importance of helping kids to read, the better.

Here's how Hollywood is lending a hand:
Thanks in large part to your support, our Tag. Give. Read. campaign has been hugely successful. So successful that Tinsel Town is on board! "Access Hollywood" personality Jayneoni Moore is launching a parallel program through The Jayneoni Moore Children's Fund, called "Tag, You're It!" and we're joining forces to go bigger and put Tag and books into the hands of even more kids.

Jayneoni and her celeb mom pals have been buying Tag Readers to give away to classrooms in need, and their campaign will encourage others to do the same. To sweeten the deal, LeapFrog is giving 5 Tag books for each system donated to the cause. And on November 14th, all these moms and their little ones will gather at a "packing party," to turn what we hope will be a massive pile of donated product into individually boxed "Tag kits" for classrooms. And you could be there to help!


Did you read that last part? Let me spell it out again: You could be there to help! Okay, let me rephrase that:


Win a Leapfrog Tag AND the chance to win an all-expenses trip to Hollywood

That's right, we're doing another giveaway: one lucky Bonggamom Finds reader will receive a Tag Reader and the new USA Map, and be entered to win an all-expense paid trip to Hollywood to attend the November 14 Packing Party!

Leapfrog has provided Tags as giveaway prizes to a few select bloggers, and the winners from these giveaways will be into a drawing of all blog post winners to win the "grand prize" trip. You'll get the star treatment: LeapFrog will take care of all travel arrangements and expenses for winners, including transportation from home to the airport and back, transportation from airport to hotel, accommodations at The Peninsula Beverly Hills (where the Packing Party will be held), and incidental expenses for meals and refreshments.

Even if you don't get to go to the Packing Party, you can still help:

* You can make a donation of Tag books -- you can ship them to 269 South Beverly Drive, Beverly Hills, Ca 90212 by Thursday, November 11th 2010 (or drop them off, if you live nearby). All items will be packaged and shipped to the special selected kindergarten classrooms on Sunday, November 14th, during a special packing event attended by celebrity moms and hosted by Marissa Jaret Winokur cohost of the talk show The Talk!

* You can still donate to a teacher via DonorsChoose.org -- your dollar will go even further with LeapFrog's donation of $100,000, to match donations, dollar-for-dollar, made to teachers who request the Tag learn-to-read system for their classrooms. So if you donate via DonorsChoose.org to the teachers on this list, Leapfrog will effectively double your donation!


Disclosure: Each blogger who posted this giveaway is entered to a blogger drawing to win a trip to Leapfrog's celeb Tag Packing Party-- so by posting this giveaway, I am entered to win a trip as described above. Contest information is provided by Leapfrog and is clearly indicated as such. The views and opinions expressed here are my own.

My daughter is currently in kindergarten. I have volunteered to help in her classroom and I know how much time her kindergarten teacher spends on laying the ground work so that her students will be successful readers. I think that programs like Tag Give Read help accelerate early reading skills, and I'd love to help out at the Packing Party. What an fun way to get kids excited about reading!

I participate in the Dolly Parton "Imagination Library" project here in Crockett County, Tennessee. My two boys are grown now, but when they were little I always read to them, and encourage them to read. I feel that reading is one of the most valuable lessons that a child learns. I would love to participate in the Tag Give Read project and would like to talk to someone about bringing this project to our little county. Thanks for the giveaway. dancejamboree at gmail dot com

I like this since as a homeschooling mom, this will be a great way to add a charitable, values subject field trip for my 6 year old.

I love this give-away! so much heart! :D

Are you kidding me?! Who WOULDN'T want to help with this? Say the words "children", "education", and "reading" and I'm all over it.

Besides, this Maryland girl has never been on the West Coast. I would be seeing the other side of the country all while working for a great cause.

It sounds cliche but, children are our future.

I would love to help at the packing party to "give back" for all the great learning my kids have had with their Tag systems. I give the Tag system credit for helping my son learn to read. They're great.

I'd love to win another Tag system for my nephew.

Thanks for the giveaway!
