Cultivating Kindness

Our focus for the month of March will be cultivating kindness and I hope you will all join us in this effort to promote a little extra happiness in the world.  We all have it within us to be kind, but oddly I've found that sometimes it's easier for us to show compassion and kindness to a stranger than it is to those we know.  It's so easy to develop opinions and bias that we allow to cloud our desire to truly show kindness to all.  As part of our March effort to cultivate kindness, I want to encourage our Lovin' Friends and Family to commit an unexpected and beautiful act of kindness for someone that has wronged you!  This can be the family member that seems to always know how to push your buttons, the cashier that overcharged you un-apologetically, the customer that gave you a bad review, or anyone else that's created havoc in your life.  With Random Acts AMOK (Annual Melee of Kindness) tomorrow, what better time to show not only the meek, the deserving, and the humble some kindness, but let kindness really run amok by being nice to those showing you the least kindness.  Maybe in doing so we can set a new example and let a little light into what may be a dark place for them. 

Let's cultivate kindness by:
1) Showing compassion without bias
2) Being mindful of opportunities around us and committing acts of kindness on a daily basis
3) Pushing our own boundaries to intentionally be liberal with forgiveness and kindness to those we feel have wronged us.

We hope you'll take time to visit our Facebook Page and give us your thoughts or inspirational stories.  March 1, 2014 is Annual Melee of Kindness and March 8, 2014 is Good Deeds Day.  It's a good time to ramp up the kindness.  I don't think there's ever really too much to go around.  Remember... forgiveness can be an act of kindness, too.

Happy Valentine's Day from Lovin' Scoopful!

Most of you know that Lovin' Scoopful isn't your typical company.  We believe in doing more and we know you do, too.  To thank you for all the Lovin' you show us each year we want to return the flavor :) today.  We are offering our blog followers a promo code all your own.  If you follow Lovin' Nation (our Lovin' Scoopful blog) and began doing so before February 14, 2014 please go to www.LovinAward.com/address_entry and use promo code LovinNationValentine - <your blogspot ID> (so that we can verify you on our list of followers).  That promo code will be valid for you all month in case you don't get around to it today. 

For those NEW to Lovin' Nation, we have a code for you, too.  New followers visit www.LovinAward.com/address_entry and use promo code New2LovinNationValentine - <your blogspot ID> (for verification purposes). 

THE FINE PRINT
Our standard rules apply.  You can only enter any given promo once.  If you enter multiple time (be it using different names, different mailing addresses, different email addresses, different birthdates, different phone numbers, etc) it will void your entries.  All duplicates of any piece of information are investigated as well as checked against any previous entries since 2010.  Please do not enter for other people. We do not mail entries into areas where Lovin' Scoopful isn't sold, but if you feel you qualified for this promotion and you don't receive your coupon within 10 weeks please email TamaraGordy@LovinBrands.com and I will follow up for you.  Use that same email address if you have questions.

HAVE A HAPPY AND LOVIN' DAY!

Super Bowl Fever

Do you have Super Bowl fever? We do, too! In fact, we're letting our next COUPON PROMO CODE be determined by the 2014 Super Bowl winner! Between now and midnight Pacific time February 1, 2014 either submit promo code SEAHAWKS or promo code BRONCOS at www.LovinAward.com/address_entry for a chance at a coupon for a FREE full size container of Lovin' Scoopful. The winner of Sunday's game will determine which of the promo codes is valid.  Beware, though, that you cannot submit entries for both.  If your household submits more than one entry for the Super Bowl promo, all of your entries will be void so please submit only one entry. The first 100 entries with the correct promo code will receive coupons, but only in states where Lovin' Scoopful is sold. Visit www.LovinScoopful.com/findastore.aspx to see if Lovin' is available in your area. Enjoy the game! With Lovin' Scoopful in the lineup, victory can be even sweeter! 

Here are some tips that may be helpful:
  • Be sure you use a working email address.  We often send verification emails.
  • Do not allow someone else to use your email address.  Any email address appearing in multiple entries will flag the entry.
  • Do not create entries for other people.  We've seen situations where one person would try to submit entries for others in their family or social group.  You can only submit one entry, so if you were to enter someone else's information, theirs would count as your one entry.  If they enter on their own as well, you may void their entry in doing so.  Because of this we do not allow people to submit an entry for another person or household.
  • All duplications in name, mailing address, or email address are investigated.
If you have questions please email TamaraGordy@LovinBrands.com.

Be a Superhero!


Halloween is here and the superhero costumes have been flying off the shelves (even for adults).  We want to be a hero and most of us just don’t exactly know where to start.  I’ve met some REAL superheroes and you might be surprised at how many are in your midst.  These heroes don’t tend to don the requisite comic book tights and capes and more often than not, no one sees or acknowledges their efforts, but they are changing the world none the less by standing up against bullying and showing kindness and compassion to those around them.

The world could always use another hero.  If you want to be a beacon of hope for the world, begin by being a friend to someone who needs one.  Your compassion will make the world a better place.

Father’s Day is Sunday June 16th, 2013

Each of us has our own idea of what makes our Father special, but one thing often in common is the love they have for their children.  Let us help you show your appreciation for Dad.  From now until Fathers Day you can request for us to send your Father a certificate for a FREE 56 ounce container of Lovin’ Scoopful Gourmet Light Ice Cream (if Lovin’ is sold in his area).  Visit www.LovinAward.com/address_entry and give us your Father’s address.  In the notes section specify promo code FATHER2013.  We’ll include the poem below in the mailout unless you request it not be included.  Please read the fine print below for basic offer restrictions. 
 
Thank you Daddy
When I was a child I turned to you when scared
You wrapped your arms around me and reassured me all was well
As I grew older I tried to prove I could do it on my own
I flexed my muscles and stood firm to show I was strong enough to take care of myself
And you patiently waited on the sidelines for when I needed you
I’m older now, and so are you
But I still see you watching out for me…. quietly… patiently
Waiting for a moment to catch me in case I fall
Thank you for all the times you saved me
There were probably some I never even knew about
Thank you for being my guardian, my guide, my advisor, and my friend
Thank you Daddy
The fine print:  Please submit only one request.  Although you may have several father figures in your life and several email address to send the request from, we kindly ask you to request only for one.  We also ask that you not request for your spouse unless doing so on behalf of your young children living at home and then only submit one request, not one for each child.  For any person or address there will only be one coupon mailed.  Multi requests for one person or one address will be treated as one request.  If Lovin’ Scoopful is not available in your father’s area, no mailout will be sent unless you specify that you would like the poem to be sent even without the coupon.  Please note that the mailout will NOT arrive until AFTER Father’s Day.  Be sure to submit your request no later than June 16th, 2013.  This is our gesture to honor your father and we will take care of it as soon as we can and hope to have all requests mailed soon.  We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.  If you have any questions or concerns please email TamaraGordy@LovinBrands.com.  We wish you all a very happy Father's Day!
