Giveaway: Nature Valley Prize Pack!

**Edit: This giveaway is now closed.**

Hey guys, I have a fun giveaway for you today!

MyBlogSpark, together with Nature Valley® granola bars and Patricia Shultz, author of 1,000 Places to See Before You Die, want everyone to know about the this year’s National Parks Project.

From their e-mail:

This year, the National Parks Project will focus on restorative work at Grand Canyon, Yellowstone and Biscayne National Parks.

To get involved, simply purchase a box of specially marked Nature Valley Bars and mail in your wrappers to the address below:

National Parks Project
PO Box 450328
El Paso, TX 88545-0328

Nature Valley will not only recycle the wrappers, but will also contribute $0.10 to the National Parks Conservation Association (NPCA) for every wrapper received (up to $600,000 in total). To learn more about the National Parks Project and how you can make a difference, check out today. And don´t forget to visit Nature Valley on Facebook or Nature Valley on Twitter to "Like" or "Follow" the brand. Facebook fans can enter to win a trip, as well as share photos and videos of their summer vacations.

Well, guess what? MyBlogSpark generously gave me a Nature Valley® prize pack to sample, and one of you will get a pack for yourself!

Here’s what’s included in the box:

- a box of Nature Valley® granola bars
- a Nature Valley® mini backpack {my little nephew will love this!}
- a military-grade compass
- a cool green water bottle {BPA-free – yay!}
- a solar-powered, key chain flash light
- the book 1,000 Places to See in the U.S. and Canada Before You Die

One of my “bucket-list” items is to take an RV trip with my kids around America one day. This book will be the perfect companion! I’ve already enjoyed checking off the places we’ve visited around the country, and I’ve gotten ideas for more great places to see.

You all know that I’m trying to eat clean and not a lot of sugar, but these granola bars are perfect for packing in my DH’s lunch when he starts his new job next week. “Whole grain oats” is the first ingredient, and they’re not made with high fructose corn syrup, which makes me a happy lunch-packer. :)

To win the prize box, just leave a comment answering this question:

Have you visited any of the National Parks? If not, which one would you like to visit most?

- We used to go camping every year on Mount Desert Island, Maine, home to Acadia National Park. We haven’t gone in a few years due to pregnancy and Luke being too little, but we hope to go back next summer! It is literally one of my favorite places on earth (and it’s listed in the book!). :)

Good luck! Giveaway ends Friday at 5:00 Eastern Time.

Disclaimer: Nature Valley provided me with the free product, information and gift pack through MyBlogSpark. I chose to accept this “spark,” and all opinions are honestly my own.

  4. yes! grand canyon, zion, bryce canyon, capitol reef, arches, & rocky mountain. would love to visit acadia. (never been to the northeast.)

  5. I have so many I'd love to see! Yellowstone, Bryce Canyon, Grand Canyon, Acadia... the list goes on and on!

  6. I've been blessed enough to go to several parks throughout my life; but the one trip that is nearest and dearest to my heart is Denali in Alaska. I was on a mission trip with my church, and knowing that most of us wouldn't make it back to AK anytime soon, we took a mini vacation at the end of the trip (that we paid for ourselves) It was a beautiful trip that I cherish forever. :)

  7. I've never been! Oh and I did enter you anyway missy! You can always give it as a gift to someone! haha!


  8. I visited the Great Smokey Mountains National Park when I was in elementary school, but I don't really remember it. I would love to go out west one of these days and visit the Grand Canyon and/or Yellowstone.

  9. I think I had been to several national parks when I was young but I was too young to appreciate them. I wanted to know where the rides or swings were. Now as an adult I would love to go see the Grand Canyon in person.

  10. I have never been to any of the National Parks but I would love to see The Grand Canyon, Yellowstone, and the list goes on But definitely the Grand Canyon first! I just want to stand there and marvel at what God has made!

  11. I've been to Gettysburg and Valley Forge National Park and I flew over the Grand Canyon twice heading to California. I'd love to visit Haleakala National Park in Hawaii ...because, well, it is in Hawaii!

  12. We just got home from Shawnee National Forest in southern Illinois. We like to check them out when we travel

  13. I would love to go west to Yellowstone to see Old Faithful or visit Acadia in Maine. Thanks!

  14. The only national park we've visited is Glacier Bay - totally breathtaking! I thought it was going to be once in a lifetime but we've already been back :) I highly recommend it (any of Alaska for that matter!).

  15. We've visited many national parks...Rocky Mountain is my favorite so far.
