One of the most precious gifts to us from God is our children. More than ever, I've been thanking God for blessing me with my children and healthy ones at that; we are truly blessed. On a daily basis we receive emails from people adding their children to our prayer list, crying out for healing or thanking God for their health. We encourage everyone to continue sending in those emails.
Actually, what's been on my heart lately is, I've been thinking about all of God's beautiful children. There are parents who have not been as fortunate as we have and it breaks my heart that these families have to endure such heartache when one of their children have been diagnosed with a horrible disease, illness, special needs, etc. We believe that all children are a gift from the Lord and they should never be taken for granted.
Here's what we're up to: We are having a "God's Little Blessing" Baby Photo Contest. I know it's a little unusual for us to do something like this but we thought it would be fun for you to show off your little angel. You see, not only will you be able to show off your little one on our website and Facebook Fan Page but after the contest ends, we're going to turn that photo page into a "Pray For My Child" Photo Wall. Prayer is one of the most powerful tools God has given us. A blessing is not a blessing until it is spoken. We have got to declare God's goodness and favor over our children. We'll encourage everyone who visits the page to pray for every child on it. Faith Baby represents the wonderful blessing that God has promised us through our children and we are dedicated to help raise children in God's light.
We're making it very simple to enter, here's how it works:
Get your photos ready, the contest starts on March 8th and ends on March 31st. There are a few rules and here they are...
1. Your Child must currently be between 0-5 yrs of age.
2. Only one photo per child. Multiples (twins, triplets, etc.) will be entered as one "baby photo" entry if all babies are in one photo or count separately if sending in one photo per child.
3. A digital photo must be emailed directly to us (firstname.lastname@example.org) with your child's first name. Make sure to put in the subject line "Baby Photo Contest".
4. No need to dress your little one in our Faith Baby apparel (although that would just be an extra brownie point).
5. Because all children are near and dear to our hearts, looks and appearances will not be the determining factor, the winner will be chosen by a random number draw.
6. We ask that you become a fan on our new Facebook Fan Page and suggest our fan page to all of your friends. Not only will they be able to enter their little one in the contest but they will be able to add their child to our "Pray For My Child" Photo wall. Or, you can tweet about the contest on Twitter, also feel free to blog about it. You are more than welcome to copy our photo above for your blog or website and help us promote the contest that way (please link it to www.faithbaby.com). If you are not on Facebook or Twitter, we still invite you to enter your child in the contest.
7. Lastly, the photo serves as a release to Faith Baby, Inc. that you, the parent or legal guardian, gives us the right to use the photo on our website, blog, and Facebook Fan Page. Entrant represents and warrants that the submitted photograph is an original, non-published work that does not infringe any privacy, intellectual property or other rights of third parties. By submitting the photo you are acknowledging that a release has already been signed and that you are the legal parent/guardian to the child. Photos will become property of Faith Baby, Inc.
We will select the winner on March 31st and will make the announcement at www.FaithBaby.com. The winner will also be contacted via email.
WHAT WILL YOU WIN??
One winner will receive a two-piece outfit from our Faith Baby collection along with $50!! The best part is for every entry we receive, Faith Baby will donate $1 to your favorite charity, children's ministry, or non-profit organization up to $250.
Don't miss out and tell your friends, family members and co-workers all about it!
At the end of the contest we'll be accepting all baby photos (any age) to add to our "Pray For My Child" Photo Wall.
Please note: FaithBaby.com is a family friendly website; we reserve the right to refuse any photographs that we feel is not appropriate for our site.
Feel free to start sending in your photos (email@example.com) and we'll start posting them HERE on Monday March 8th.
