Annie 2014

With the movie Annie hitting theaters next week, I teamed up with some awesome bloggers to offer an Annie movie prize pack giveaway for you. The prize pack includes some very cool stuff for your kids, and you too if you are into the nostalgia of it.


If you are an 80’s baby like myself, you probably remember the original Annie from 1983. In the newest version, you get to see an updated perspective on what the story would look like nowadays. Someone asked me my favorite Annie song recently, and I would have to say it is a toss-up between “It’s The Hard Knock Life” and “Tomorrow.” Tomorrow is the one I remember from when I was little. If you look at the lyrics, they are inspiring because they encourage you to have hope that things will get better even in the face of troublesome circumstances. Of course, as an 80’s baby, I became familiar with “It’s The Hard Knock Life” through Jay-Z. I can’t think of that song without thinking about Jay-Z’s version.

For this giveaway, I want it to be super easy for you to get entries and increase your chances to win.

Just use the Rafflecopter below the player.


The giveaway will run from December 12 to December 19th at midnight EST time. It is open to US residents, 18 and over.

Here is some more info on the movie, in case you are curious:

ANNIE – December 19, 2014
A Broadway classic that has delighted audiences for generations comes to the big screen with a new, contemporary vision in Columbia Pictures’ comedy Annie. Director/Producer/Screenwriter Will Gluck teams with producers James Lassiter, Jada Pinkett Smith & Will Smith, Caleeb Pinkett, and Shawn “JAY Z” Carter, Laurence “Jay” Brown, and Tyran “Ty Ty” Smith with a modern telling that captures the magic of the classic characters and original show that won seven Tony Awards. Celia Costas and Alicia Emmrich serve as Executive Producers. The screenplay is by Will Gluck and Aline Brosh McKenna, based on the musical stage play “Annie,” book by Thomas Meehan, music by Charles Strouse, lyrics by Martin Charnin, and on “Little Orphan Annie,” © and ® Tribune Content Agency, LLC.
Academy Award® nominee Quvenzhané Wallis (Beasts of the Southern Wild) stars as Annie, a young, happy foster kid who’s also tough enough to make her way on the streets of New York in 2014. Originally left by her parents as a baby with the promise that they’d be back for her someday, it’s been a hard knock life ever since with her mean foster mom Miss Hannigan (Cameron Diaz). But everything’s about to change when the hard-nosed tycoon and New York mayoral candidate Will Stacks (Jamie Foxx) – advised by his brilliant VP, Grace (Rose Byrne) and his shrewd and scheming campaign advisor, Guy (Bobby Cannavale) – makes a thinly-veiled campaign move and takes her in. Stacks believes he’s her guardian angel, but Annie’s self-assured nature and bright, sun-will-come-out-tomorrow outlook on life just might mean it’s the other way around.
