Home Grown Families does not complete product reviews on sample size products and we are not responsible for shipping fees. All products used for review purposes will not be returned unless discussed prior to receiving the product. If you have press kits, videos and/or pictures that you would like to have in your product review please include them as well.
Due to overwhelming demand, all reviews AND giveaways must be on products (or a combination of products) with a value of $25 USD or more. Any unsolicited products, products sent that do not apply to the blogs focus, products that do not meet our minimum monetary value, products that do not give us enough information on your company or service, products we find to be unsafe or environmentally irresponsible or offensive products may not be reviewed and will not be returned. We will ALWAYS contact you if we have a question but if we do not receive an answer your product may not be reviewed and will not be returned.
Reviews are great networking tools and moms love to read what other mothers think prior to purchasing something. Due to our tough economic situation, moms want to be sure a product is right for their family before paying for it! Giveaways seem to be very effective at gaining attention towards a product and we encourage you to offer a giveaway. We work hard to promote our giveaways on social networks! Giveaways are always free when combined with a product review. Sponsored posts and giveaways without a review, may require a fee. The sponsoring company is responsible for shipping to the winner, so please do NOT ship it to us. We will email you with the winner’s mailing information, so you can get it out to them. All giveaways are open to U.S and Canada as default, unless otherwise discussed.
At this time, due to Facebook Rules we are unable to ask our readers to comment on your Facebook page. It can be asked to have them “like” your page but no comments and not as a mandatory entry. We always make liking your Facebook page a way to gain an additional entry into the contest. We also promote your newsletters, Twitter, website and any other social networking you may have. Per FTC regulations, we are unable to ask readers to make a purchase in order to participate in the giveaway.
