School is back in full swing, everyone’s schedules are filling up, and Mom, you’re knee deep in meal planning and budget busting; all the common things that come with back-to-school month-of-September territory. We are right there with you as we try to flush out the summer popsicles from our kiddos’ systems and steer them back onto the right track of a healthier lifestyle, all while trying to save a buck or two.
That’s why we’re excited to invite you to participate in Sampler’s Week of Wellness; an incredibly fun, online sample sharing event that combines fresh brands, free stuff, and friends all in one jam-packed week!
Not only will you be able to discover and receive some tried and true products FOR FREE from amazing brands that are all about healthy living, but you can also share the love with your fellow mamas who are also looking for a fresh start to the school year. You don’t want to miss this, so be sure to read on for all the details so you can get pumped up and prepared for Week of Wellness!
Monday, September 21st
How do I get the goods?!
There are several different components to Week of Wellness, including ways to win big over and beyond the already free samples you will be receiving, and ways to include your friends, because there is nothing more satisfying than giving while also receiving!
RSVP To Win
This step is two-fold; one, in that by RSVPing you will gain access to the Week of Wellness event calendar that shows you what brand’s sampling events are available each day, and two, you are automatically entered into a giveaway for the greatest gift basket of all time, that includes over $150 worth of products from sponsored brands!
Wish For It
Now that you’ve RSVPed, you have access to the Week of Wellness calendar, so here’s where the fun and your friends come into play.
Go through the calendar and “Wish For” all the product samples you want to receive before the event starts. Wishing for a product allows you to share on your social media outlets what you’re hoping for, and with enough luck, one of your social media “friends” will then “send you” the sample you had wished for on the day it’s available.
This is a great way to share the Week of Wellness with all your virtual friends, and for you to score some great samples as well. Grab a friend and you both can partner up all week, by each of you wishing for products and then granting the wishes of each other. It’s a win-win, and everyone ends up healthier and happier at the end of it all!
Events start Monday, September 21st. You will find each event’s time and Facebook location on the calendar after RSVPing, so be sure to dedicate some serious time to Facebook that week so you don’t miss an event. Hey, it’s just for a few days and you’re saving money and trying to live healthier, so explain that to your teenager when she gives you a hard time for being on Facebook more than her!
Timing and speed is everything for the Week of Wellness if you want to score big. Again, you can only receive samples for yourself if a friend sends them to you, so be sure to find someone beforehand to team up with. When an event starts, be there the second it goes live, because no surprise, samples go fast. So start strategizing with your friend so you both can get everything you had “wished for”.
As if it couldn’t get any better, keep an eye out throughout the week for extra special Flash Giveaways that will pop up on each participating blogger’s Facebook page. The time and date will be listed on the calendar, but the rest is a surprise! And if you know Daily Mom and how much we love giveaways, you can expect something amazing from us.
What are the goods?!
There are lots of different brands participating in Week of Wellness; some that you may already be a huge fan of and others that you might be hearing about for the first time. Each brand is dedicated to providing you with the ultimate products in health and wellness, and now is your chance to experience what all these brands have to offer, with nothing out of your pocket!
Here are a few of our favorite brands that are participating in Week of Wellness:
Afternoon snacks, whether packed in the backpack or laid out at home after the school bus drops the kids off, are the perfect opportunity to give your kids an energy boost to last them the rest of the day. Ditch the junk food snacks, and replace their typical highly-processed snack foods with GoRaw’s junk-free food. In a wide assortment of snack-y foods that are perfect for small hands and big tummies, from cookies and seeds to bars and flax snax, every item is raw and filled with life, providing you and your kids with nothing but pure, organic essential nutrients, digestive aiding enzymes, and many other life-changing benefits that a raw diet boasts.

Trying to pack some extra Omega-3s into your and your family’s diet? Barlean’s brings you the best tasting and easiest way to incorporate these healthy fatty acids into your everyday eating. You know your kids won’t touch actual fish with a 10-foot fork and your husband dramatically chokes back his horse pill every morning, so why not help them out a bit by pouring a couple teaspoons of Barlean’s delicious Omega Swirl into their yogurt, oatmeal, or even over their ice cream for dessert! With the taste and texture of a fruit smoothie, and available in several different flavors, this is by far the most unique and user-friendly way to take your Omega-3 supplement.

Any beef jerky fans here? You’re probably aware that the typical jerky snacks out there just aren’t that great for you.

Wild Zora has transformed the jerky market into something that is healthier, veggie-er, and yummier. Packed full of fresh organic vegetables mixed with 100% natural grass-fed beef and other proteins in a wide variety of delicious flavor combinations, Wild Zora’s snack bars are a complete meal in a convenient, on-the-go friendly package.
This meat and veggie bar is calling your name, jerky lovers! Wish For It Here!
