Dollar General Black History Month Giveaway

February is most known for Valentine's Day but also February is Black History Month. Carter G. Woodson originally founded “Negro History Week” in 1926. This was a time when the accomplishments and history of African Americans was omitted from most history books. The celebration was chosen to be in February because it is the birthday month of Frederick Douglass and Abraham Lincoln. In 1976, Negro History Week was expanded to Black History Month.

In celebration of Black History Month, Coca-Cola® is offering Dollar General customers a chance to win a family trip for up to 10 people to the 2012 Essence Music Festival® presented by Coca-Cola. The Essence Music Festival – which takes place July 6 through 8 – is the country’s largest annual African-American music and empowerment event. Sign up here for your chance to win!

In addition, shoppers who purchase qualifying products from Dollar General may also be eligible to win instant prizes, including $50 and $25 in Live Nation® Concert Cash®. For a chance to win, Dollar General shoppers can check their receipt for a special code upon purchasing qualifying products. For complete sweepstake rules, visit
www.dollargeneral.com.

The Honor Heritage Sweepstakes is part of Dollar General’s Black History Month celebration, the first of several Dollar General initiatives honoring “Every Day Heroes.” The year-long program will honor community heroes – from the firemen and veterans to teachers and caregivers. So keep your eyes out for more great promotions from Dollar General honoring Every Day Heroes throughout the rest of the year.


Thanks to Dollar General, one Smart Cents Mom reader will win a Black History Month prize package!The package includes: Olay® Firming Night of Olay Cream, CoverGirl® LashBlast 24 Hour Mascara, Febreze® Auto in Linen & Sky scent, a Dollar General calculator and a key chain.
