“Pledge® To Love Your Kitchen” $15,000 Contest Winner Announced


Thanks to the amazing folks at Pledge®, Mom It Forward hosted a “Pledge® To Love Your Kitchen” $15,000 Contest that began on November 15 and ran through December 10. Entrants were required to submit at least one photo of their kitchen as well as a description of why their kitchen was in desperate need of some love. Throughout that time, hundreds of people entered countless photos and creative entries as a plea for help. (See all entries here.) Dilapidated countertops, tired and old appliances, mismatched cabinetry, chipped flooring…these were just some of the features that were highlighted in the photos that were submitted.

Even though a picture is worth a thousand words, entrants were only allowed 500 characters to describe why their kitchen was in need of a makeover. The creativity in the written entries was amazing; which really made choosing a winner rather difficult. After reading the entries and looking at all of the photos, we’re excited to announce that the winner of the “Pledge® To Love Your Kitchen” $15,000 Contest is Kimberly of Hampden, Massachusetts. With pops of blue all over her kitchen, she was definitely singing the blues when she wrote her entry entitled, “Beauty in the Least”…

Room as old as mine,
Blue as it can be.
Barely ever trends,
then somebody spends,

Needs a stainless range,
the current one’s deceased.
Floor’s a bit impaired,
for too long it’s been shared.
Beauty in the least!

Hard to be reclaimed,
even though it tries,
now it’s an eyesore,
nothing like couture.
Pledge® brings out a prize!

Room as old as mine

Congratulations, Kimberly! And thank you so much to those of you who entered.
