Primose Family Dance-Off - Enter and/or Vote for My Crazy Kids

This has been one of the funnest (yes it is a word, I looked it up) and most rewarding campaigns I have been lucky enough to be involved in. Anytime I can include the kids, it is a good time.

We put on the music and the kids danced their little butts off. They laughed and carried on for about 40 minutes listening to songs like Who Let The Dogs Out, Celebration and YMCA. They had a blast! My son who has been listening to Baby Einstein tapes to go to sleep since he was born now listens to these songs instead. They ask for a Dance Party every afternoon after school and we boggie down before homework. Beside working off some energy, they are having so much fun! I love our new ritual.

Primrose School is hosting a Family Dance Off to promote healthy habits, physical fitness and good old fashion good times, along with a contest that anyone can enter.

The Dance Off supports Children's Miracle Network Hospitals, a non-profit organization that raises funds for more than 170 children's hospitals, treating 17 million children annually for every illness and injury imaginable.

Why Should You Enter?

The Prizes offered are:
•Grand Prize: $5,000 and a $30,000 donation to the winner’s local CMN Hospital
•2nd Prize: $3,000 and a $20,000 donation to the winner’s local CMN Hospital
•3rd Prize: $1,500 and a $15,000 donation to the winner’s local CMN Hospital
•All 14 Finalists: A FLIP camcorder

Sounds great right?! It is, and benefits so many children.

Step-by-step instructions

Check out Handsome and Goddess and if you feel like voting for them or another participate, please do. We would love to win and finally give back to a hospital. After receiving thousands in charity care at my hospital, it would be great to pay it forward.
