New Year, New Giveaway


THIS CONTEST IS NOW CLOSED. We wanted to start off the New Year right and give you all some very cool things as a thank you for being part of our InCultureParent community. We have been so fortunate these past two years to have virtually met so many interesting families and we’ve continued to grow and attract new readers like you. So thank you!


We’ll be giving away three cool items, all from fellow moms raising little global citizens. The winner will get to pick which of the three they want, second runner-up picks the next item and third runner up will have the last. Here are the items so generously offered by each of our sponsors.


1. A Global Compassion Map or My Roots Map from Children Inspire Design by Rebecca Peragine


Children Inspire Design is a product line of modern, eco-friendly and culturally diverse wall art, wall cards and posters, designed to help children learn compassion for our earth and all who inhabit it. Artist, mother and social entrepreneur, Rebecca Peragine, has combined her passion for global design with her desire to inspire children to celebrate eco-consciousness and the beauty of different world cultures. Rebecca believes in embracing every opportunity to recycle and reuse. Each piece incorporates repurposed paper materials, eco-friendly inks, and biodegradable packaging.


Global Compassion Map

 My Roots Map


You can choose between A Global Compassion Map, where 100% of proceeds will be donated to give a month’s worth of nutrients to 20 children in Kenya through Future Foritfied, or a My Roots Map, customized for your child’s roots.




2. A fun outfit from Mixed Up Clothing by Sonia Kang

Mixed Up Clothing
Mixed Up Clothing is a multiethnic children’s clothing line inspired by the textiles, cultures and people of the world, to develop friendships through fabrics. Sonia infuses ethnically diverse styles with cultural twists, blending materials and designs from all corners of the earth. The designs are inspired from her own multiethnic family of four children. You can choose an outfit for a boy or girl from her currently available collection. Please note: if you are the winner and pick this as your first choice, she can only shop domestically.


3. The Asian Grandmothers Cookbook by Pat Tanumihardja


The Asian Grandmothers Cookbook

This cookbook is a compilation of pan-Asian family recipes from close to 20 different Asian cultures, including her own grandmother’s and features yummy dishes like Mochiko Fried Chicken, Japanese-Style Hamburgers (Wafu Hamburgers), Chicken Coconut Soup (Tom Ka Kai), Cardamom Studded Flan and many more. It was inspired by the idea that grandmothers are the closest link we have to our cultures and traditions. You’ll also find anecdotes and stories about family, food traditions, grandmothers, mothers and aunts, and much more.


Aren’t all these awesome things were giving away from these mompreneurs really inspiring? We’re so impressed by the many ways people create and innovate, especially across cultures and to show us all more slices of the world.
