How would you like a chance to win a Global Sun Oven, a pressure cooker, a hand grinder and many other amazing prizes this year?

At least once a month in 2011 we will be promoting a special giveaway drawing. There are four ways to win:

1)      Join our Preparedness Pro Facebook Group

2)      Make a comment on the Facebook Group page

3)      Make a comment on our blog on any of the articles

4)      “Friend me” on Facebook (

Each time you do any of these activities you will increase your chances of winning each month. Unless stated otherwise, you’re eligible to win the prize regardless of where you live. (We may have to make some judgment calls if the prize is something heavy and the winner is in Canada or South Africa.)  Only one winner per household—I have to say that because some of you have been SUPER lucky and get your name drawn over and over again. (Perhaps you should buy a lottery ticket—just kidding!)

This month’s prize is a copy of one of my most used books, “Desk Reference for Pure Therapeutic Essential Oils” by Dr. Dana Young.

(Retail Value $65) And yes, I’ll spring for the shipping regardless of where the winner lives! The drawing will take place on January 29th.

This is going to be a wonderful year for preparedness, folks. I hope that you all jump on the bandwagon with me and really kick into gear your self-reliance efforts!

Good luck on the drawings, everyone!

This looks like a great opportunity–too bad you don’t get an entry by linking to the giveaway, because I just did that over at my blog. 🙂 Anyway, looking forward to more good information this year!

Chris Burns · January 4, 2011 at 9:24 pm

How do you join your facebook group? I am not a big facebook user and can’t figure it out.

Carson · January 5, 2011 at 12:14 am

This got me commenting. Free info and now free stuff. Thanks

    Kellene · January 5, 2011 at 12:23 am

    Yeah…free info and free stuff…makes me wonder why some people feel like they have room to complain. 🙂

Rani · January 5, 2011 at 12:19 am

Sounds exciting!

Debra · January 5, 2011 at 12:25 am

I appreciate all the great info here !

Diana Smith · January 5, 2011 at 12:41 am

Sounds like an interesting book…a goal this year to increase my knowledge of herbs and natural healing products.

Linda · January 5, 2011 at 1:04 am

This is fantastic ! At least there is a chance at possibly winning. Thank you for making this possible. I know there are many more than myself working hard at getting all of this together.

Nancy · January 5, 2011 at 1:27 am

Looking forward to a new year of preparedness. Your giveaways are fantastic. Won a can of FD Peas last year. Thanks!!

Glenda · January 5, 2011 at 2:36 am

I don’t use Facebook anymore. I was told they had problems with hackers getting personal info. Sounds like Facebook users have a great chance at some great stuff!

    Kellene · January 5, 2011 at 3:08 am

    So do you, Glenda, simply by posting comments here. :-)Besides, doesn’t Glenda the Good Witch have the best of luck? 🙂

Mary · January 5, 2011 at 3:10 am

I have thoroughly enjoyed all the tips and information you provide. Keep up the good work and thanks.

Marci · January 5, 2011 at 3:23 am

I LOVE contests! I always say “If you don’t enter…you CAN’T win!” ….and yes…I have won my share…it’s a rush for sure!

Astrid · January 5, 2011 at 3:39 am

Wow, what a great prize to give away. The book sounds very good. I just wrote it on my list of books to purchase. Thanks Kellene for all that you do.

Pam · January 5, 2011 at 6:19 am

I don’t Facebook either, so I will hope that this chance will help me find out which oil to use in the case of a knife or gunshot wound.

Much Oblige for your kindness Kellene!!!

charo · January 5, 2011 at 12:37 pm

Kellene, I look forward to every email I receive from you. The information can be and often is lifesaving. I don’t do facebook since I was a member and got too much junk and “invites” from people I did not know. I live alone in a very rural area and feel safer not joining facebook. I will continue to comment to your site as I trust it completely.

I wish I were closer so that I could take advantage of learning from you and others. Thank you for all you do to educate and promote self-reliance.


    Elizabeth · January 5, 2011 at 3:50 pm

    Hello, If you want to be safer do not list your full name, where you live, and other details as you have done. Maybe you can edit your comment and take out information that makes it very easy for others to find out about you. Take care.

      Elizabeth · January 5, 2011 at 6:42 pm

      I hope that isn’t rude of me. I am not trying to be rude or sarcastic. Just trying to be helpful. Thanks.

Kathy · January 5, 2011 at 2:30 pm

I enjoy reading your blog.

NJG · January 5, 2011 at 3:14 pm

What a cool thing, and I love the prizes. Thanks Kellene for being you and all you do to help us. Jeanne

katzcradul · January 5, 2011 at 4:01 pm

Count me in!

kristin · January 5, 2011 at 4:05 pm

sounds good! 🙂

Darlene · January 5, 2011 at 5:09 pm

Always looking forward to your posts…thanks for the chance in the drawings.

    Darlene · January 5, 2011 at 5:12 pm

    Kellene, tried to send you an email but was unable. Can I can bacon drippings for storage? They sure would be nice to season beans with in a pinch if no ham hock were available. Anyone ever done this…please RSVP
    Many Thanks!!

      Kellene · January 5, 2011 at 7:17 pm

      Yes, you can preserve the drippings, it’s very, very similar to bottling butter. So just do a search on here for “bottling butter” and follow those directions.

Dennis · January 5, 2011 at 5:23 pm

Does this post count? Prizes are always fun but this blog is the real gem.

    Kellene · January 5, 2011 at 7:15 pm

    Yes, it counts as an entry for your Dennis. Good luck!! And thanks for “buttering me up” too. Hee hee

Pam · January 5, 2011 at 5:24 pm

Pick me! Pick Me! What a great offer. Thanks for doing this.

ToughTimes · January 5, 2011 at 6:30 pm

Marcia · January 6, 2011 at 6:02 am

I enjoy the information that you so freely share. Thanks for your expertise on many subjects. I think that this book would be very useful in how to use those essential oils.

Elizabeth · January 6, 2011 at 11:26 am

Mary · January 6, 2011 at 5:51 pm

You try to keep us informed on what is happening and trying to get us to be aware of what the govenment is doing to make us bend to their rules. Thanks for the effort, keep up the good work.
