9/11 Film Gift Pack Giveaway!

9/11 opens in theaters on September 8 and features an all star cast including Luis Guzman(The Taking of Pelham 1,2,3), Gina Gershon (Showgirls), Wood Harris (Justified), Jacqueline Bisset (Dancing on the Edge (BBC), Welcome to New York), Olga Fonda (The Vampire Diaries) and Bruce Davison (X-Men).
In the World Trade Center, a billionaire sits in his attorney’s office awaiting a divorce hearing against his wife. In a west side apartment, a bike messenger kisses his 5-year old daughter and sings her “Happy Birthday” before leaving for work. A maintenance man gets dispatched to help a tenant with his lock. In an upper east side apartment, a young model musters the courage to break up with her sugar daddy. As random as random can be, these individuals step into a crowded World Trade Center elevator.
Wrapped up in their own world, they all ride silently hearing only the sound of the elevator giving notice of each floor. When the elevator stops on the 34th floor, it empties leaving only these five behind. Moments later ... their world changes as the collision of a jet into the North Tower incapacitates the elevator.
With no understanding of what has happened and is happening around them, these fives are forced to band together and fight against all odds to escape from the impending horrific collapse. During these critical minutes, a story of courage, faith, and the will to live unfolds.

When 9/11 happened, I, myself was just in 7th grade. I had no idea the severity and couldn't really understand what was going on at the time, until my parents were able to explain it to me. Now I have children of my own that ask questions and are learning about this tragedy. The guide is such a great tool to use. Now I would like to do a giveaway for one lucky reader! Please fill out the form below. Starts 9/2/17 12pm est and Ends 9/16/17 12pm est. Open to US residents 18+

The Prize Pack Contains:
1 - 9/11 poster Hand Signed Autographed by star Charlie Sheen

On the Groupon site there are 71 deals and coupons for Target. One of my absolute favorite deals for Target is $5.00 off $50.00 plus free shipping! This deals is not only good online but, in store as well. They also have 30% off in their home department. I could shop Targets home d├ęcor section for hours. I can really get lost in there.

 I must admit, I love a good deal and I love my Groupons. Because we have a big family, any activities we do like bowling, mini-golf, or roller skating can get very expensive very fast. So our family was already used to using Groupon for local activities in our area.

American Heart Association

I'm learning how I can help make a difference by raising lifesaving donations to help kids with heart disease. I'm also learning about my own heart, and how to keep it healthy. And I'm getting active! I'm excited about raising money for other kids - kids with hearts that don't exactly work right and to help fund new medicines and treatments to be discovered. Please help me make a difference! Thank you! Join me in my efforts to support Jump Rope and Hoops For Heart!
