Congratulations to @PinchingAbe, she was the random winner of the $250 gift card!
Tell us what brings comfort and joy to your life and how you share that with others, or share how someone else has comforted you or brought a soft touch to you in your time of need, in a thoughtful, original essay of at least 400 words. The first 50 qualified submissions will be rewarded with a $40 gift card from our friends at Kleenex®! Additionally, one random qualified submission will get a $250 gift card!
How it works:
We are looking for creative, original and authentic submissions of high quality. Create an original post on your blog, in 400 words or more (using your own words), sharing what brings comfort and joy to your life and how you share that with others. You can also share how someone else has comforted you in your time of need. Did a friend help babysit your children when you were taking care of a sick parent? Does baking cookies make you and your family happy? Do you bring them to a friend’s house and share them while you catch up? We want to hear about all the special things that make you happy or how others have touched you in your time of need in the past.
In your essay, include a thoughtful introduction, original content within the body of your post, and a conclusion. Check your spelling and your grammar. You must also include the disclosure statement below in your post and install the campaign widget in the sidebar of your blog. Then follow the rest of the requirements below. We will select up to the first 50 qualified submissions to receive a $40 gift card, and one random qualified submission to receive a $250 gift card!

Invented in 1924, Kleenex® Brand facial tissues were initially marketed as a sanitary way to remove cold cream and makeup.
