Still Giveaway in Support of Return to Zero

If I told you that there was a way for you to be an activist for an important cause, and that it would take less than 2 minutes of your time and that you could wear your pjs the whole time, you'd be in, wouldn't you?  And what if I told you that you would be rewarded for those 2 minutes of pajama-clad activism with an awesome prize?  Irresistible, right?  I hope so, because I really do have such an opportunity for you, and it truly is important.  If you haven't already seen my short YouTube video about Sweet Pea Project's giveaway in support of the new movie, Return to Zero, then please swing on over and check it out at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WjKNa2sZ_aI&feature=youtu.be.

Here's what you need to do.  First, click HERE and pledge to see Return to Zero when it comes to a theater near you.  Use my name, Stephanie Cole, as your local leader.

Second, enter the giveaway by sending an email to Stephanie@sweetpeaproject.org with the subject line STILL.  Be sure to include your name and mailing address, so that we can send you your prize if you win!  We are giving away 50 copies of Still, so your chances are already pretty excellent, but if I were you I would probably have every person I know sign the pledge and enter the giveaway, too- that way the movie gets more support and your chance of winning increases since your friends and family can always give you their prize if they win.  :o)

All entries must be submitted by Midnight US Pacific Time on Thursday, June 20, 2013.

Here are the prizes:
1st Prize- 1 copy of Still for the winner + 20 copies to be donated to the winner's hospital of choice
2nd Prize- 1 copy of Still for the winner + 10 copies to be donated to the winner's hospital of choice
3rd Prize- 1 copy of Still for the winner + 5 copies to be donated to the winner's hospital of choice
12 Runner Up Prizes- 1 copy of Still for the winner

Why support this movie?  Return to Zero is a rare kind of film, one that tackles the uncomfortably deep sadness of stillbirth head on.  In an effort to get this important film into theaters, Director Sean Hanish has asked us all to show our support by signing a pledge saying that we will be there in the theater when this movie is released.  Hundreds of movies are made each year and never make it to the theaters, and we are determined that Return to Zero will not be one of them.  26,000 babies are stillborn in the US each year.  This is another chance to remove the stigma and break the silence surrounding their deaths.  For more information on the film, visit www.returntozerothemovie.com.

Please feel free to email me at Stephanie@sweetpeaproject.org with any questions you may have.  Visit www.sweetpeaproject.org to learn more about Sweet Pea Project and www.readstill.com to learn more about this book you are trying to win, Still: a collection of honest artwork & writings from the heart of a grieving mother.  And thank you for your support.
