Mamavation mom! I applied

"Hey @bookieboo! I want @KATECOLEMAN77 to be the next #Mamavation Mom. She has my support! http://bit.ly/aorv3Y"

THIS IS MY APPLICANT VIDEO http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SUc3W7xrksM
I really want to be able to have the experience in becoming the next Mamavation mom. What is a mamavation mom you ask? here is the infomation from the website on what i want to embark on:

Mamavation Moms lose weight in a boot camp experience without having to leave the home. They are set up with free fitness equipment, a solid support group, and professional resources to do so. As they are learning healthy living and losing weight they live their lives on a stage for seven weeks. The campaign becomes a virtual docudrama with real challenges and victories as they become the stars of the campaign. To become a Mamavation Mom, an application needs to be complete, then 5 women are selected as finalists. Those finalists go up for a public vote and the two winners are announced during the Twitter Launch Party on January 17th.

Anyone who applies to the campaign is given the opportunity to take part in the Mamavation community AND are automatically entered into the Move It & Lose It Challenge sponsored by Earth Footwear where they can win $500 and a pair of shoes.

You must first have the following qualifications and adhere to a couple of rules to apply.

Here are the dates for the next campaign:

Applications: December 15th to January 5th
Voting: January 10th to January 17th
Mamavation Moms announced at Mamavation Launch Party: January 17th from 5-7pm PST/8-10pm EST
Campaign #7: January 17th to March 4th

Stop! You must complete a video application answering this question, “Why do you want to be the next Mamavation Mom AND what will YOU do to inspire other moms online?” Please keep your responses to under four minutes. As soon as you are finished, upload the video to YouTube and tag it “mamavation”, then post the video in your blog with a description of the campaign.

After you have submitted your application, show me you are a serious contender. I want to see you ALREADY living a healthy active lifestyle and sharing that in the #mamavation hashtag. You also need to show me you have support from your friends online. You will need to lean on them some days, so show me they exist and that you ALREADY have a network of friends that care about you. Have them tweet at me the following message,

“Hey @bookieboo! I want (@insertyourIDhere) to be the next #Mamavation Mom. She has my support! http://bit.ly/aorv3Y”

For the people you know who are only on Facebook, have them post on the Mamavation Facebook Fan page and tell me why they think your would make a good Mamavation Mom.

Notifying your family and friends and getting them to support your application is a very important step. Regardless of the outcome of your application, it ensures that the people around you know you have made a step toward healthy living. Whether you become a finalist or not, they will hold you to your pledge of wanting to live healthy. (Btw, the more they tweet and facebook, the more I know they are in your corner.)
