In search of the best local parenting resources, as well as readers’ favorite online resources, Red Tricycle launched the Totally Awesome Awards presented by giggle, in five cities –Seattle, SF, Portland, San Diego and Los Angeles– and across the internet.
The Totally Awesome Awards are sponsored by baby and kids retailer giggle, and will include categories ranging from Best Kids Drop-Off Childcare and Best Doulas on the local level to Best Moms Forums and Best Celebrity Kids Sites on the national level, offering the most fun reader-driven awards, guaranteed to generate the largest viral impact in the greater parenting community.
Both Red Tricycle and giggle will be promoting the awards through their user databases and social media channels. With over 3900 participating businesses, blogs and websites, Red Tricycle expects the awards to attract over 200,000 voters over a ten-week period as well thousands of tweets, Facebook likes and shares.
Totally Awesome Award winners will be announced on October 15, 2011. Everyone that participates in the awards by nominating or voting for a business will be entered to win several prizes, including Grand Prize: a $500 gift card to giggle, 1st Prize: a Flip Video camera (value $300), 2nd Prize: a An Oversized Organic Winnie-the-Pooh Plush (value: $110).
