GIVEAWAY: Win Your Very Own ‘My American Girl Doll’

American Girl is doing amazing work with their new Shine On Now campaign and we are so very proud to be an AG official parent partner! My eldest daughter is in LOVE with American Girl, we bought her very first Bitty Twins last year and they have yet to leave her side.

f you aren’t familiar with the Shine On Now campaign click here to read our previous posts. From July 13-July 31st, girls are invited and encouraged to visit www.shineonnow.com, everyday and donate free stars to go towards this effort. American Girl will then take those stars and convert them into clothes, books, dolls and money – all of which is to be donated to the following five organizations:

  • Kids in Distressed Situations
  • Save the Children
  • National Association of Children’s Hospitals and Related Institutions
  • National Wildlife Federation

The goal is to collect one million stars by July 31, 2010. It’s easy, quick and free! Head on over to Shine On Now to donate yours and make a difference in a child’s life.

In addition to this campaign, American Girl has launched a brand- new virtual campus,Innerstar UniversityTM which is a fun, safe online world where girls learn to be their best through a variety of games, quizzes, and other enriching activities that help boost their confidence and strength. Access to the new virtual world comes with each 18-inch My American GirI™ doll, which will be available July 13th through American Girl.


In celebration of this fabulous campaign, American Girl is offering (1) Child Mode reader a chance to win their very own My American Girl™!
