CONTEST CLOSED!!! Give Respect - Family Violence Prevention Fund Macy's Gift Card Giveaway

It is Father's Day and in honor of Father's Day I have teamed up with Respect! to bring to you this amazing giveaway! One winner will receive a $50 gift card to Macy's and ten winners will receive the Respect! bracelet from Macy's!
What is Respect!
"For three decades, the Family Violence Prevention Fund (FVPF) has worked to end violence against women, children and families everywhere. Instrumental in developing the landmark Violence Against Women Act passed by Congress in 1994, reauthorizing it in 2005 and most recently, for conceiving the International Violence Against Women Act, FVPF is known for its model training and education programs to enlist influencers, leaders, and new allies, including men and youth, in proven solutions. FVPF's reputation for transforming the way health care providers, police, judges, employers and others support survivors and work to end violence and its success in building leadership within communities to ensure that violence prevention efforts become self-sustaining has earned several national awards, including support from major foundations, Congress, and the White House."

The RESPECT! Campaign℠
"The RESPECT! Campaign is the Family Violence Prevention Fund's (FVPF) latest initiative to advance a national movement to promote healthy relationships through positive role modeling and respect education. By individuals everywhere to be part of the solution, the RESPECT! Campaign provides everyday tools and resources to help teach young people about respect in relationships. Through this campaign, the Family Violence Prevention Fund seeks to amplify a national conversation about the critical role that parents, teachers, coaches, and other living, breathing role models to young people have to play in helping all of our sons and daughters shape a world that is free of relationship violence."

There is little that is more important than an safe and violence free home life for the well being and emotional stability of our children. Children in violent homes grow up with fear and violence in their personalities. It usually will stunt them emotionally! Let us support awareness for family RESPECT!.

Very cool campaign. My husband and I are teaching are toddlers about respect on a daily basis. At this point, any time an "out-of-line" tone is used, we take a moment to sit them down and remind them that that is not an appropriate voice to speak to an elder in.

So far everything has been magic. There's an immeadiate apology and sweet kisses. I'm hoping this carries through to a lifetime of mutual respect. :)

We teach our children respect by following the golden rule.

Dad taught us respect by modeling it for us everyday.

I'm very big on respect. Growing up my dad always told me that in order to get respect you must show respect. My kids are a wee young, but I show them to treat each other nicely because one doesn't like it when the other one is mean and vice versa.

Children give back what they are given. If you respect them and teach them to be polite they will reciprocate. My father always said please and thank you and treated me very respectfully. I in turn treat others that way.

My Dad showed respect to others and was a model to us. It wasn't just to other adults, but to kids, too. He respected us and showed us that we were important to him. He didn't talk negatively about other people...coworkers, boss, neighbors. He found the good things they did and respected that.

My dad taught me respect by modeling it for me. He always told me to greet adults and other people when I first see them.

My daddy always taught me that respect was key in any relationship. He was a perfect model of that. He taught me to speak politely, and shake someone's hand when I met them. I just hope I can instill in my children the values my dad taught me!

My Dad taught me to give respect and you will get it back ten fold. Respecting others shows a sign of maturity. I have a 3 1/2 year old daughter. When we go to to playground she is always respectful of others, she doesn't ever hit,raise her voice or throw tantrums. I believe my husband and I have shown her the right way and we are very proud of our daughter!

My dad taught me to respect people by his example. I try to be as good an example for my kids.

My dad's best advice was to treat others like you want to be treated. He taught me that it doesn't hurt to be nice and respectful and if you are nice and respectful you will be happier.

My father taught me respect by the way he treated my mother, my sister and I and his friends. He was kind and thoughtful and he never hurt our feelings and if he accidentally did he would apologize. He taught me to go out of my way to treat someone, whoever they are, with respect and to not judge them or make assumptions.

I think my parents taught us 6 kids respect by Example. They raised us to be respectful of everyone and everything. There was a heavy hand and a loving heart with my dad. My mom has always treated not only strangers and others Respect but also my dad and our kids.. You learn what you live I guess is what I am trying to say.
Thanks for the chance this is an amazing campaign

I was always taught to address people with respect, using sir and ma'am. I plan to teach my kids the same and have manners to say please, thank you and excuse me.

My dad taught us to respect others to get respect back.
I teach the twins to respect by teaching them not to interrupt their elders, Be kind to their little cousins and share. Also how to use "please", "Thank You" "No thanks" and "excuse me"
