For me, that has to be Ron—he’s such a great coach, handles so much of the daily shuffle, and is a terrific role model for both our boys. I try to thank him often for everything he does for me, Ryan, and Adam, but I also want to also let him know today that he’s my Care Hero.
In celebration of National Family Caregiver Month, we’re giving you the chance to honor the heroes in your life. These are the family members, babysitters, nannies, senior caregivers, pet sitters, and teachers who make our lives easier! Nominate a caregiver and they could win a $500 Care Package (And you can win “thank you” prizes for entering them, too!). We want to hear stories about the people in your life who go to great lengths every day for those they love or work for.
Through the rest of November, visit Care.com on Facebook, post a photo of a caregiver and write a few words on why they’ve been a Care Hero to you and your family. Then get your friends involved—their comments on your nominee’s photo will help them win the contest!
At the end of each week, we’ll choose a Care Hero finalist. Each finalist will win a $100 restaurant gift certificate and whoever nominated them receives a 3-month subscription to Care.com.
On December 1, we’ll choose an overall winner and name them the 2009 Care.com Care Hero. The winning caregiver will receive a $500 “Care Package” including hotel stay, tickets to a show, and dinner on us. As a thank you, we’ll also give the nominator a $100 restaurant gift certificate to show our appreciation.
Say thank you to the special caregiver in your life! Nominate them to be the 2010 Care.com Care Hero! You can enter your caregivers and see all the entries on the Care.com Facebook Page.
