PSA: Verizon HopeLine #VZWVoices #VZWSE

PSA: Verizon HopeLine #VZWVoices #VZWSE

As I mentioned to you previously, I’m a Verizon Wireless ambassadors as part of the Verizon Voices program. From now until the end of the year, I will be posting content presented to me as part of this program.

Unless otherwise noted, all thoughts and opinions belong to Drugstore Divas.

Have you heard of the Verizon HopeLine? I had never until last week … but to my surprise, it’s a program that has been available since 2001.

What is it?

It’s a program that donates no-longer-used phones to survivors and victims of domestic violence. Since its inception, the program has collected over 10 million phones for this cause.

So if you recently upgraded to the new iPhone 5S and have nothing to do with your old iPhone 4S, don’t hide it in a drawer. Consider donating it to the Verizon HomeLine.

According to the info I was given, “nearly one in four women, one in seven men and more than 3 million children in the United States affected by domestic violence.” Knowing your phone can be donated to help one of those people is a great feeling.

Plus, for every recycled devise, Verizon Wireless will contribute $1 to Verizon HopeLine to help stop domestic violence.

One Kings Lane: Melissa & Doug Sale (Til 11/1)

One Kings Lane: Melissa & Doug Sale (Til 11/1)

melissa & dougMelissa & Doug products are pretty much the kids toy line. They really are great but the prices, well, not so much. I always feel like Melissa & Doug products are a little out of most people’s budgets.

But not right now.

Through November 1, there’s a big Melissa & Doug Sale at One Kings Lane. There are items like Pull-Along Zoo Animals for $16 (reg. $20), Deluxe Pounding Bench for $20 (reg. $14), and the Flex Octopus Chair for $20 (reg. $14).

Items are selling out quickly, so definitely check out the items now. Plus, even better, sign up today for a $15 credit for purchases of $30 or more. Sounds like the right time to stock up the gift closet.

Giveaway: Chicken Soup For The Soul 20th Anniversary Edition, Three Winners (Ends 11/6)

Giveaway: Chicken Soup For The Soul 20th Anniversary Edition, Three Winners (Ends 11/6)

chicken soupDrugstore Divas has a coupon group on Facebook. We just hit the milestone of 1,500 members. Not bad for a group that only had 80 members when we went into September.

But Drugstore Divas isn’t the only brand hitting milestones. The book series Chicken Soup for the Soul has been around for 20 years. To commemorate this, Chicken Soup for the Soul 20th Anniversary Edition was published.

The book features original stories that have become favorites, plus 20 new stories written by Deepak Chopra, Dr. Oz, and more. Dr. Oz’s story isn’t about how to make yourself healthier (as so many of his television shows are about) but one of a patient he saved … who was suicidal and didn’t want to be saved.

The stories are good, just what you would expect from a line that has 20 year’s worth of stories to choose from and 20 year’s worth of fans to call upon to write more.

You can purchase the book on Amazon or you can win it here. We are giving three copies away to members of Drugstore Divas’ Facebook group. You must be a member of the group to qualify.

This giveaway starts now and ends at 11:59pm EST on November 6. Just use the Rafflecopter below.

Good luck.
