Independence Day Fireworks Giveaway!

Yay! It's fireworks season again!

I always look forward to Independence Day! This is my 7th year spending the week before our country's birthday in the big yellow and white tent. I really enjoy getting to do this, and I am beyond appreciative that Sean makes it a priority to let me have the week "off" so that I can go work the tent.
Last year, the Lee's Summit/Hillcrest Fireworks Tent offered an awesome giveaway through this blog along with a discount for an A Beautiful Ruckus readers. I've been chatting with the tent operators over the last few months, and guess what? They are totally on board with letting me giveaway more fireworks this year!

But first, in case you are new to the blog, let me tell you why I love this particular tent and the organization it benefits:

The tent I always work with partners with Hillcrest Transitional Housing. It's a ministry in our area that works with families who don't have homes. They help them by providing a place to live, basic life skills education, and the encouragement to find a full-time job. It's a 90 day program that offers a hand up instead of a hand out, because their goal is to get these families back on their feet. They have a 95% success rate, and are doing some fabulous work in our community. Wonderful!
Odds are that you will be purchasing fireworks somewhere this season, and I hope that you will consider doing so at the Lee's Summit/Hillcrest Tent. All military, civil service, and homeschoolers get 10% off as an extra incentive! Your money will be benefiting something far more worthy than overhead at a big box store....plus, you get to meet me! I met several blog readers last year and had a blast!

So, now that I have you on the hook, let's get on with some fun stuff! Ready??
First, all A Beautiful Ruckus readers will receive 10% off any purchase! Just mention that you are a reader at the checkout counter! Save a little money, and know that you are partnering with a great ministry!

On top of that, you can enter to win one of FIVE prizes!

Four readers will win the Kiddie Assortment Packs! It has snappers, sparklers, poppers, and some other fun things to entertain younger kids!

One Grand Prize Winner will receive the Pyro Blast Fireworks Party Package (or a package of like value) that contains all sorts of items to get even the dads excited! This party package retails for $75! Just as a side note, the lady who won this last year has a husband and four sons...let me tell you who was queen of the house when she brought that home!

All you have to do is enter below, and then of course, come see us at the Big Yellow and White Tent in Lee's Summit! And definitely don't forget to mention that you are A Beautiful Ruckus reader to snag your extra discount!
