National Family Caregivers Month: $100 Amazon Gift Card Giveaway

Random Acts of Kindness Giveaway AARP- Win $100 Amazon Giftcard- Ends 12-5-15
We are shar­ing this post as part of a Blog­gin’ Mamas Social Good Cam­paign, and were not com­pen­sated for doing so.

 Bloggin' Mamas is sponsoring this giveaway in support of the Ad Council and the AARP & helping to raise awareness of the Caregiver Assistance campaign. November is National Family Caregivers month, and the Random Acts of Kindness initiative aims to recognize and support the 40 million unpaid caregivers in the U.S.


Many caregivers are boomer women, often sandwiched between the needs of their parents and their own kids. A popular misconception is that caregivers are paid medical professionals, providing full-time care to someone in need of daily help, when in reality, most caregivers are family members or friends who are also working and managing their own families at the same time. For many, the caregiving role starts with simple things like scheduling a doctor’s visit or helping with daily errands, but gradually expands over time, until it becomes a major commitment in their lives.

This month, they kicked off a program designed to encourage all Americans to perform an unexpected ‘Random Act of Kindness’ for a caregiver. By starting this nationwide movement, they’ll raise awareness of caregiving and caregivers while at the same time reaching caregivers directly—helping to alleviate some of their daily stresses and reward them for their ongoing support.

Almost three in ten people who are caring for someone say their life has changed with caregiving, oftentimes for the negative. More than one in five say their weight, their exercise, or their social life has/have suffered. Emotionally, one in five say they are generally unhappier and one in three say they feel sad or depressed. That’s why AARP created a community where caregivers can connect with experts and other caregivers and can find information and tools to take even better care of the person who once took care of them.

  1. Ok this probably sound selfish ...but shouldn't the caregiver the person helped also get something? Lol...I applaud the sentiment but the caregiver most likely could use a nice surprise as well.....

  2. We've given gifts to home nurses for our family members. Care givers definitely need to be shown that we thank them for all that they do. I could not do some areas of their job.

  3. I am familiar with AARP but not a member yet. I have done a random act of kindness for a caregiver. Last year I gave my sisters in home nurse a gift card and flowers on her last day.

  4. I've been getting AARP membership information in the mail since I turned 25, besides that I know pretty much nothing. My family sends small gifts and treats to the nurses at the nursing home my grandfather lives in.
