Kohls Cares for Kids Contest

If you’ve been around Want Not for longer than a couple of days, you know that I’m a big fan of Kohls, and in particular, I’m a huge fan of Kohls Cares For Kids. Yes, they raise money for charities, do good work in their local communities, and even sponsor scholarships for needy kids, but they also sell really awesome books and plushes on the cheap to do so. It’s a win-win; you get something fantastic for just $5, they get money to do good for kids all over the country.

This year marks the 10th anniversary of Kohls Cares For Kids, and to celebrate, Kohls has generously offered up five complete sets of their current Dr. Seuss-themed line-up for giveaway here at Want Not. Each set includes: The Lorax with Lorax plush, The Foot Book with orange character plush, Oh, The Thinks You Can Think! with yellow plush, If I Ran the Circus with whale plush, and also The Green Book (a handy book of tips on protecting our earth). Each set is a $45 value and five of you are about to feel a lot luckier, greener, and Dr. Seuss-ier. (That is so a word. Hush.)

Want to win a set? Of course you do! First go review the contest rules and regulations, then come on back here and leave a comment on this post by 8:00 a.m. Eastern (that’s 5:00 a.m. Pacific) on Monday, February 22nd, 2010 to be entered. Winners to be determined by random number generation and whether or not you’re willing to win in a box, with a fox, or if you eat rocks. (Not really.) (Please don’t eat rocks.)

Ready? Go!

  46. In a box, with a fox, either way, I’d say hooray!

    (Actually, I know just the community book program that could use the books — so I’d let my daughter select one, and she and I would bring the rest to the local health center where they give each child a book at every well visit. At my daughter’s birthday last summer we collected new books for the program rather than more toys for my daughter. It was a great learning experience for us all!)

    That would be a way to spread the wealth, wouldn’t it?

    Hooray, hooray, what a fantabulous day!
