It's that time of year....time for a fantastic giveaway! The folks from Beam N Read are allowing me to give away a 6 LED Deluxe Hands-Free Light. If you are not tickled pink, you certainly should be....not an opportunity you want to miss!!! Why do I say this? I say/type this because I was so surprised by how much I use and enjoy my own Beam N Read light. When I first saw the light I thought to myself....great another light....who cares. Oh was I wrong and I'm guessing if you have that thought....you will be surprised by how wrong you are too!
Having a Beam N Read 6 LED Hands Free Light will bring you, your family and friends 6 oz (including batteries) of total gratitude this holiday season, I promise :) The Beam N Read Lights are wonderful for power outages, camping, reading, late night work.....any time you need to BRIGHTEN you path....they work wonderfully. You also have the choice to use 3 LEDS or 6 LEDS by using the switch on the light...very handy ay?
I have given away over 25 Beam N Read Lights over the last few years. I give them for birthday, Christmas, Going Away Gifts, Sorry Your Power is Out Gifts.....it is the truth...just ask my friends, neighbors and family.
Recently I had a friend who was moving back to Shanghai and I gave her one as a going away gift. Knowing she would be on an airplane for a very long time I figured it would be very useful to her. Lisa said I was so thoughtful to think of a gift that she could use that would not take up much room. She works late hours on her computer and sometimes while in bed so I thought she would get a lot of use out of her Beam N Read. Sure beats getting another something that will collect dust!
For you long time followers of my blog, you will remember the recent loss of my very dear girlfriend Mary Jane. I used her Beam N Read while caring for her during the night. The light allowed me to see the labels on the medication bottles without turning on the overhead light. I used it to read at night as well. The beam does not illuminate the entire room so it does not disturb people in close proximity. A bit of humor....Mary Jane had sores in her mouth so bad there were times she could not speak. She wanted her Beam N Read light so she was using her hand to make a flipping up motion to indicate what she wanted. I cracked up laughing because I knew exactly what she wanted immediately. She smiled big and I laughed out loud. Thank God for friends and light!
Yes, I am very bad and work at night in my bed. For the sake of your sanity and eyesight I did not post a photo of me in my pj's using my light. You all know how "unique" I am....so it should be no surprise that I have made my own adjustable neck strap.
I'm only 50 and I have already found that the more light I have while sewing or reading...the BETTER!
I have found using the orange filter (both a red and orange filter are included) that comes with the light helps to block some of the blue light from the LED bulbs.
I have been recently educated to the effects of blue light that is emitted from LED's (computers, televisions, hand held devices and phones). Did you know blue light effects your sleep patterns and can cause other health problems as well? Yep....you can actually mess up your sleep by using blue screens before bed. Just ask me how I know!!! Sources to read about blue light: Harvard Health Publications, Environmental Health Perspectives, The Washington Post....there are so many...Google for yourself if you do not know about this subject. Having two young boys who want to be on a screen 24/7, I found this information very important.
Winning a Beam N Read 6 LED Hands Free Light will definitely make your holiday season brighter. Why not give one to everyone on you list....I bet they thank you for years to come!
Time for the giveaway!!!
