giveaway . welcome baby

so i was hanging out at the library this morning thinking to myself, i’m not hosting nearly enough giveaways this week…
haha, so obviously that isn’t the case, but i was hanging out at the library this morning, and if you’ve followed our adventures here for any period of time, you know how big of a role reading and books play in our lives here in hankiland. that said, when i was presented with the opportunity to support early literacy in our city, i was definitely not going to say no.

the welcome baby program is a program put on by our local libraries here in edmonton that helps to provide the gift of reading to each and every baby born in our city, and this weekend the team behind apricity is putting on a fundraiser to help support the cause. the once upon a springtime event is an evening of sweet treats, storytelling, and silent auctions to raise funds for the welcome baby program and i’m super excited to be giving away tickets to sunday night’s event.

up for grabs are two tickets, courtesy of the apricity team to sunday night’s once upon a springtime event at the jasper place library (my personal favourite branch).

entering is super easy — just leave a comment below sharing your favourite children’s book and you are in the draw!

winner will be drawn thursday, march 19.

best of luck!
