NOTE FROM THE MAMAS: Congrats to local mom Beth from Fayetteville! She won the giveaway below and will be getting $100 in fun money plus the two-month supply of GoGo squeeZ for her kids. Enjoy, Beth!
As you know, part of what nwaMotherlode.com is known for are fun giveaways to local moms from companies in Northwest Arkansas. Typically, we like to send moms to great events like concerts or dinners out on the town or theatre productions at the Walton Arts Center. Because the pandemic makes it risky to go out like we used to, we’re switching gears this week for a fun giveaway that’s perfect for our current circumstances.
We’re partnering with GoGo squeeZ to give one local mom the chance to win a $100 Visa gift card to be used for something she wants or needs most. Use it for takeout dinners if you’re sick of cooking and really miss your favorite restaurants. Or use it to pay for streaming new movies on the weekends. Use it to buy your next round of groceries, if that’s what you need most right now. The choice is up to you, but we hope you’ll use it to make your daily mom life a little easier or more fun.
Not only will one of our local moms win this gift card for herself, GoGo squeeZ will also send something for her kid, too. The winner’s kid(s) will get a two-month supply of GoGo squeeZ — plenty to stock the pantry, fill the lunchboxes and to grab and go as life slowly gets back to normal over the next six months.
So this giveaway has something for everyone in the family — some fun money for mama and snacks for the kids. After surviving the chaos of 2020, we’re all ready for brighter days on the horizon.
GoGo squeeZ did something remarkable during 2020 when the pandemic changed lives all over the country. The company’s “SqueeZ squad,” which is made up of moms, mobilized more than $5 million worth of donated GoGo squeeZ to food banks, Boys and Girls Clubs, school lunch programs, hospitals and frontline organizations. These donations also included the NWA Food Bank, Arkansas Children’s, Mercy Northwest, Helen Walton Children’s Enrichment Center, Sharing and Caring, the NWA Children’s Shelter and more.
The company is actively engaging with people and organizations in Northwest Arkansas to learn how they can be a true, active part of our community, not just now but into the future, too. (If you are a volunteer with a local non-profit or a school group, keep this company in mind when you’re looking for partners for community events! They’re excited about being part of Northwest Arkansas, and you’ll be seeing more of them at area events later this year.)
Local moms are already very familiar with the product itself. For more than a decade, moms have been grabbing this squeezable fruit on the go and tucking it into lunchboxes, handing it out as an after-school snack and taking a pouch or two with them in the car on the way to soccer practice, piano lessons and more.
Moms like it because it’s made from 100% fruit with no artificial ingredients. It’s also kosher and is soy, wheat, egg and nut-free which makes life easier for moms managing households with food allergies. It’s also non-GMO and BPA-free with several vegan options, too.
GoGo squeeZ is made in the United States (in Michigan and Idaho) and has more than 20 flavors. On a practical note, we mamas also love it because it doesn’t have to be refrigerated and it leaves ZERO dirty dishes behind. That’s about as mom-friendly as it gets! (The company also makes variations including Fruit and VeggieZ, yogurtZ, SmoothieZ pouches, and new GoGo Big squeeZ and GoGo Happy TummieZ, which is a prebiotic pouch.) The winner of this giveaway will be able to choose from among the most popular flavors to have shipped to her family. It will be a good way to have some favorite flavors and try some new varieties, too.
