The Best EpiPen BeltSo, what do you have to do to enter to win these faaaabulous prizes? Just leave us a comment below to enter. If you follow Lauren's Hope and Onespot™Allergy on Facebook, let us know that in the comments, and we'll give you an extra entry.* 

We'll be accepting entries all weekend. What to do while you wait with baited breath to see if you won? Read these super helpful tips for an allergy-friendly holiday, of course! 

Onespot™Allergy Top Ten Tips – For a Safe Festive Season

Turquoise Best Epipen Belt1. Teachers often schedule a festive season party. Check on the safety of the food being served, and send a safe treat for your child or the entire class.

2. Children are usually encouraged by teachers to wash their hands before lunch. Ensure that they will have a chance to wash their hands before the party.

3. Parents often bring unsolicited food to class during the holidays. Give your child’s teacher a box of safe treats to be substituted for your child, and talk to your child’s teacher to ensure there is a food protocol in place to reduce the risk, such as having parents provide an ingredient list to the school office.

4. Seasonal class activities sometimes involve food, like building and decorating a gingerbread house. Check with your child’s teacher in advance to see what he or she has planned, review its safety, offer to help shop for supplies, and provide your phone number in case any issues arise.

5. Stock up in advance on festive candy like chocolate coins and candy canes that are safe for your child, as they can be hard to find at the last minute. These sometimes come home from school unsolicited, and you’ll be able to swap them for something safe.

6. If you’re not a regular volunteer in your child’s classroom, the holiday season is a great time to get involved. As much as your schedule allows, supervise craft days involving food, class parties, and field trips.

7. The holiday season is also a great time to say thank you to your child’s teachers and caregivers for everything they do to help keep your child safe. Acknowledge this specifically in your holiday cards and continue to thank them throughout the New Year.

8. When traveling or visiting family and friends, have a bag of safe foods with you for your child. Check with your host in advance about the safety of every food being served. If you know that there will be unsafe foods served, bring substitutes for your child.

9. Have a quick look around when visiting family and friends to ensure the environment is safe. It’s surprising how often you will find unsafe items within reach, like bowls of unsafe foods, and centerpieces or displays that include nuts or other foods.

10. Children often run off to play with each other during celebrations. Make sure someone is with them who would recognize the signs of an allergic reaction and know how to administer emergency medication. Make sure your child has medication within reach at all times.

*The winners will be randomly selected using Rafflecopter, and they'll be announced here  (below) on Monday, December 16, 2013. If you or anyone in your household has won a prize from Lauren's Hope in the last six months, or if you or a family member are/is employed by Lauren's Hope, you are inelibigle to win. There are some more rules, and they're super boring to read, but they're right here if you're so inclined.

 

AAAAAnd the winners are....

winnerThose pouches are pretty cool! I work with the jr high and high school youth at my church and I myself have allergies that require carrying and Epi pen. Whenever I'm at youth group tho it reassures the parents of my kids with allergies that I carry extra Not only mine but my extra Epi pen just in case. I know all the kids with allergies and now have made my fellow volunteers hyper aware and sensitive to the needs of these kids with allergies. Plus they love my Lauren's hope bracelet and I always recommend you to them because you have the best medical jewelry! Just thought this Epi pen bag tmwould make carrying it from activities all around our church campus a little easier. ;) thanks for the awareness your company brings!

My 5 year old would love this, she is so active and her current Epi Carrier is too bulky :( I just found out about these sites (OneSpot Allergy & Lauren's Hope) and started following. I am glad we live in an age where FA parents can share and connect!

Congratulations to our winners! Please email tara@laurenshope.com to claim your prizes!

Wow fantastic to hear about OneSpot because we are always looking for epipen pouches. 
In our family we now have quite a few of the bracelets (a girl needs one for casual, one for dressup etc...) and we would love to give bracelets as a gift, so a gift card is a great idea!

Great website and offerings that make having a chronic illness a little less arduous and a little more bright, cheerful and helpful.

Wow cool belt I have never seen this before. I have looked for a bag to carry the Epi pens in separate from her backpack. Great design And bag. I hope we win so we can try it out. If course, we love Lauren' Hope jewelry Se never have to argue over wearing the bracelet or necklace because they are so stylish and perfect for a little girl. Great company who cares about its customers.

I love the belt and how generous and amazing this offer is from you both. I'm really hoping to get a belt for my son and a medical alert bracelet.

Lauren's Hope is an incredible enterprise. You always offer great items...useful and beautiful!

Thank you for this opportunity! I don't use an epi-pen, but I know someone who does, and I imagine that this pouch would make a world of difference. As you probably know since I've been making a fool of myself on Facebook babbling about all the fantastic potential combinations of bracelets and tags at Lauren's Hope, I currently have a rather lengthy wishlist of beautiful combinations, lol. I've only just ordered my first bracelet as of last night, and would love to be able to order another. A gift certificate would be a most wonderful Christmas surprise. :) I follow Lauren's Hope and Onespot™Allergy on Facebook. Thank you again for being so wonderful and providing those of us who have to wear medical IDs with a beautiful way to do it.

I need one of these! I tried a different type for my son & was very unhappy with it. I also follow OneSpot Allergy on FB. Fingers crossed, & thanks for the chance!

It would be another layer of protection for our child to have her epipen on her on the playground. The epi belt holder is a wonderful idea. Would love a chance to get one sooner than later. Thank you for the generosity of the giveaway, Onespot! And without hesitation a BIG shout out to Lauren's Hope for their beautiful selection of medical ID.

I love this idea. My mom always needs an easy way to carry around her epi pen, and when she wants to use a small purse, the onespot allergy belt is bonus. I can't wait to show it to her!!

Your epi-pen belt is the best thing ever!!! My middle schooler uses it every day and has made carrying his epi-pen so much easier. A must have!!!!

I follow on Facebook too. I would love that!

B164 this is the answer to a very long delema! A dear friend of mine who is diabetic wears the OTC bracelet! I have been bugging him to get one that may actually save his life and be quite stylish at the same time,but it's been like speaking to a brick wall! As l need a new tag myself,buying two was going to be tough! But When l saw the"win a medical tag" article l knew what to do! When on a very tight disibility income I have been able to wear beautiful,safe and mostly affordable medical jewelry and only made possible thru Lauren's! So hopefully l win one for a deserving friend to make him a member of the family at Lauren's! Thank You.
