Giveaway for Military and Family: Hero Puzzles





A couple of days ago I caught wind of a new Veteran owned business called "Hero Puzzles". I've been given the opportunity to give one of these fine toys to one of you guys, which makes me quite happy! If you ask me, this is a fabulous gift for a child of someone who is deployed or fallen.

Before I blab about it, I want to share with you how it "came to be" straight from the creators mouth,

"The concept actually came from my three year old
son about a year ago.  Just like the other men and women serving our
country, separation is a huge part of our life.  My son is quite a busy
little man and he really enjoys puzzles.  I was looking at one of the many
random wooden puzzles we own and thought to myself, I could make this. 
Fast forward a year, my son has multiple puzzles of me and our family, and
it has proved to be a coping tool for him.  My wife tells me that while I
am away it is constantly what he wants to play with!  It is also an
opportunity for him to talk about me, miss me, and have conversations
about me while working on his hand eye coordination and cognitive skills. 
It has really been a win win for him as well as myself!" -Cody Sterling

To read more about the start of this business, check out the about page, here

Cody, the owner, is currently active duty which, if you ask me, is reason enough to check these puzzles out. Not only that but these are long lasting, quality puzzles crafted from birch plywood and 10% of all proceeds go directly to the Wounded Warrior Project. So, even if you don't win the giveaway I encourage you to check Hero Puzzles out and consider buying one for your little one. There are many styles to choose from that you can check out right here

On to the giveaway! 

Rules:

1.) Leave a comment stating your interest in winning this. I would love to hear what type of picture you plan to use and who it's for. I'm nosy. 

2.) You must be following my blog or my blog's Facebook page. 

3.) You must either be in the Military or be the family member of someone in the military. I want to make sure this puzzle is used for the purposes stated above. 

4.) I will post a "You've won!" post in a week. Please claim your prize within three days of that post.

Good luck!

We may be getting out in June, but there's also a chance we are just switching branches, I would love to be able to win my daughter this so in time to come she has something more physical to not only hold but to play with, she already misses her Daddy when he goes to work just for a few hours and she's not even a year and a half yet.

I already follow your blog :) And I am the spouse of an Active Duty Marine. Good luck to the others especially with the older children.

I am the Widow of Sgt Frank World KIA 4/1/2010. I would love to win won for my children. The picture I would choose would probably be one of me (pregnant with our daughter) MY Hero and our son. My husband never got the chance to meet our daughter, he deployed two weeks before she was born. I think this would be a wonderful keepsake for my babies.

i would chose a family picture. we added a 1 and 3 year old to our family last summer, this is there first deployment and it is hard. I think this is just what they would need. think about it. they were broken and we are putting them back together. now part of them is broken but one day (7 months)we will be one whole puzzle again
