Global Giveaways- closed

This contest is now closed. Congratulations to Annice Johnson for winning the calendar and Laura Barta for winning the map!

There are so many good things happening that we have not one but two giveaways. We’re celebrating reaching 1000 Facebook friends, plus it’s the holidays for many people so it’s good timing. It’s a feel good season all around.

We’re giving away a very cool 11×14 inch world map by Art and Philanthropy.
This map is nature themed, gender neutral and originally created from scrap papers. Made with 100% New Leaf recycled card stock and soy ink, eco-friendly packaging complements the eco-friendly imagery.

And we’re also giving away a cool, multicultural calendar by gnaana, originally designed for the Brooklyn Museum by acclaimed animator Nina Paley.

Here’s their description: Reminiscent of traditional Javanese shadow puppets, we set the original black-and-white images on a digitally-created raw silk textured background–a regal setting for Lord Vishnu and his 10 Avatars. And for the first time ever, our calendar bridges the true multi-culturalism of the South Asian diaspora by highlighting US, Canadian AND South Asian holidays–Hindu, Muslim, Jain, Buddhist, Christian and Jewish, as well as Indian, Pakistani, Bangladeshi and Sri Lankan National Holidays!
You can see more pictures of the calendar here:

  1. I discovered InCulture Parent earlier this year while reading Growing Up Global’s facebook page I believe. At the time I was just hungry for resources!!! I would like to enter both giveaways because I think either prize will be awesome.

    I will be tweeting about this great giveaway.

  2. I subscribed to your mailing list. Forgot to say that I would like to win both prizes. They both look equally fabulous.

  3. I was researching how to write press releases for multicultural toys and saw the press release of your launch. I’ve been thrilled to hear from you on Facebook ever since.

  4. not sure how, but i found In Culture a few months ago and i love it! my husband is korean and i’m canadian and our first little sweetie is the perfect combination! we look forward to teaching her both english and korean and teaching her all about the world! love that map!

  5. I am loving the facebook page and just signed up for the newsletter. We are a multicultural family and I want to educate myself the best I can for my children and for that sake, our entire family. Thank you:)

  6. I found you on Facebook through a friend sharing one of your stories. Have enjoyed it ever since. I’d love to be entered in both drawings.

  7. It’s only been a few months, and I don’t remember exactly. I was probably looking up nursing practices in other countries and found your site. Thanks for the great info. I’m a facebook friend all ready. And, I’d love to have the map. That map would be fantastic in my daughter’s bedroom as soon as we move into our new house!

  8. I discovered it over the summer. I think it was a link from Multilingual living.I would love to be entered in both.

  9. I discovered your site via a Facebook link in about October this year. Really enjoy reading all the articles.. I’d like to win the map for my son.

  10. I think I found you through Green Child Magazine and have had you on Facebook for a while. There was an article about a bunch of maps like this one you are giving away. I’d like to be considered for both.

  11. I am a facebook fan. Gosh – I think I became an incultureparent groupie a 1 1/2 years ago when I was looking into multicultural celebrations that I wanted to start incorporating into my family’s traditions. InCullture Parent popped up in google and I was overly excited to find it! I would love to be entered for both, but if I could only enter for one it would be the Calendar!

  12. I share your articles all the time on facebook. Particularly ones related to attachment work – as many of my friends and family do this work with their adoptees or as therapists. Today’s share was To Korea with Love: Grieving the Loss of the Foster Family

  13. Around mid-October this year. The author of a blog I read, who wrote about one parent one language, linked me to your website and I liked your page on FB from there.

  14. I found your site just a few weeks ago while searching around for a multi-cultural gift for my best friends amazing 2 year old daughter who speaks some American sign language, Arabic, German, Spainsh and English. No joke, her Momma is simply brilliant. They have lived in or visited France, Germany, Italy, Great Britain, Croatia, New York, Washington, Oregon, and Utah. I know I am missing a few places… But you get the point. I love your site!! Thanks for being there.

  15. My mom sent me one of your articles just before my first son was born, she thought it would interest me because my husband is Zambian (I am Canadian). The article was called ” Why African Babies Don’t Cry”, written by J. Claire K. Niala. Since then I have enjoyed many more articles and features on your site. Thanks!
    I would like to enter to win both the map and calender (either one).

  16. I found your site about a year ago. I’m studying education (and art) and I found your site while looking for resources for one of my education courses. I’ve been using this site since. I would like both giveaways.

  17. I found your site about three months ago. I was looking for a site to share more of a global view with my boys age 7 and 4. Love it! I have travelled some and plan to do more!

  18. I found you when someone posted an article of you in FB. Since then you are helping me to raise my children in a very mindful way. I will love to have the map. Thanks!

  19. I have been a FB fan for a while now and have loved the resources you post. I believe I found you when I was searching for information around transracial adoptive parenting. Our little multiethnic family would LOVE to be entered in both draws, please and thank you. : )
