Today we are kicking off the 2012 "Joy it Forward" holiday theme with a Harris Teeter $25 gift card giveaway!
Joy it Forward is about paying it forward so we can all have a joyous holiday. We'll be giving away many more goodies here on the blog in the next month and my hope is that the joy you receive from winning (and seeing your fellow blog readers win) will encourage you to help others where you can - to pay it forward.
Even the little things make a difference. Hold the door open for someone, wish a stranger a happy holiday, surprise the person in front of you in line by buying her coffee, donate a few extra canned goods to one of the many food drives happening this time of year. There are so many ways to pay it forward now and all year long.
Maybe the winner of this giveaway will use part of the Harris Teeter gift card to purchase a few extra items to donate to the Harris Teeter Harvest Feast food drive taking place in stores now.
10th Annual Harris Teeter Harvest Feast
Through Friday, November 30, you can donate nonperishable food or money to your local food bank through Harris Teeter. Simply donate food items at your local Harris Teeter store or purchase a $1, $5, or $20 Donation Card. All the items and monetary donations will be given to local food banks in your community. Click HERE for more information.
Since the Harvest Feast started in 2003, shoppers have donated over one million dollars and hundreds of thousands of pounds of food to local food banks!

One lucky winner will receive a $25 Harris Teeter gift card! To enter, leave a comment below with a "Joy it Forward" idea - something you think you can do to pay it forward and put a smile on someone's face in the next week. I can't wait to see your ideas!
I'll randomly pick the winner (using random.org) on Tuesday, November 27 at 2:00 PM. Good luck and I hope you have a joyous Thanksgiving!
Thank you to Harris Teeter for generously donating the gift card!
