What is a sampling event?

GRO Week is a one week online event that runs from June 8, 2015 through June 12, 2015. During this event you will have the chance to explore and discover many healthy and yummy brands that offer gluten-free, raw and/or organic alternatives. There are thousands of products available during these sampler events, as well as 5 amazing flash giveaways just waiting to be claimed! Whatever you do, just be sure you RSVP and ready yourself to move fast once an event is posted!

Prior to the sampling event, I highly recommend that you wish for your sample. This will let your friends know that you would love to receive this product. As soon as the event begins, your friend will be able send your the sample you wished for so long as they are on the right GRO week tab. I would recommend teaming up with a buddy during this event, so you can work together to ensure your sampler wishes are fulfilled.

How do I participate?

RSVP to Win a Gift Basket

You will first need to RSVP to participate. This RSVP will be entered into a grand prize draw for your chance to win a gift basket filled with goodies from the sponsoring sampler brands. By RSVPing, you will also get access to the official GRO event calendar where you will be able to find out when each sponsoring brand is hosting their sampler event.



Sampling Events

From June 8 through 12th there will be various sampling events hosted,  you will want to make sure you have RSVPed for the event to know when each event is scheduled to take place. Once the event goes live, you will want to click through immediately, as samples have been known to go quite fast! To better your odds, try being on the app right as the event goes live.

What’s neat about the Sampler is that you can only send product samples to Facebook friends. If you can, I would suggest teaming up with a buddy ahead of the event because if there is a sample you want during the event, you will need a friend to send it to you. Why not team up with a friend to ensure you both get the samples you would love? That’s why the Wish For It period before the event is so imperative. It let’s you and your buddy gain better understanding of how you can send and receive a sample.

Flash Giveaways

In addition to the sampling events, there will be a flash giveaway each day hosted on a participating blogger’s Facebook page. These will also go live at the time listed on the calendar.

* The vast majority of the GRO events are open to Americans only. However, the Chicpea & Lentille and The Green Lid Sampler Events, as well as the Flash Giveaways are open to Canadians.
