"The 33" giveaway!

Think back to 2010 when the world was entranced by the tragedy of "The 33," the Chilean miners trapped below ground for 69 days. They were buried 200 stories below the surface in suffocating heat, waiting for rescue. While rescuers desperately attempted to get them out, the new film "The 33" based upon this reveals the psyches of the men trapped in the mine, depicting the courage of the miners and their families.

The international cast is led by Antonio Banderas, Rodrigo Santoro, Academy Award winner Juliette Binoche (“The English Patient”), James Brolin, and Lou Diamond Phillips, with Bob Gunton and Gabriel Byrne. The cast also includes Mario Casas, Jacob Vargas, Juan Pablo Raba, Oscar Nuñez, Tenoch Huerta, Marco Treviño, Adriana Barraza, Kate Del Castillo, Cote de Pablo, Elizabeth De Razzo and Naomi Scott. 

Patricia Riggen directed “The 33” from a screenplay by Mikko Alanne, Oscar nominee Craig Borten (“Dallas Buyers Club”) and Michael Thomas, based on the screen story by Oscar nominee José Rivera (“The Motorcycle Diaries”) and the book Deep Down Dark by Hector Tobar. The film was produced by Oscar nominee Mike Medavoy (“Black Swan”), Robert Katz and Edward McGurn. Carlos Eugenio Lavin, Leopoldo Enriquez, Alan Zhang and José Luis Escolar served as executive producers.

I haven't seen the movie yet but Big A and I have talked about seeing it in theaters. For now, I'm anticipating it but also excited to host another giveaway for you, my readers. 

You could win a t-shirt (black that says "Hope Runs Deep") and a small flashlight. The shirt is super comfortable and my husband uses the flashlights on runs in the dark.

Enter by commenting about what you remember from 2010, whether about this tragedy or your own life. For me, this was a year after Squirt was born so I remember moving, again.

I will post the giveaway winner and notify them of email over the weekend. They will have 48 hours to claim their prize or I'll choose another winner. Must be 18 or older to enter.

Disclaimer: I received t-shirts and flashlights in exchange for hosting a giveaway.

I remember watching this news story play out on the media in total disbelief. I remember feeling emotional for the families as each man was raised up from deep beneath the ground. Those emotions come back as I see previews for the upcoming film. It won't be a dry eye fill but Im excited to see it! Email- dereksarahkaeb@gmail.com

Our twins were born in 2010. My hubby traveled, all the time, for work...and I had 5 kiddos.....4 of them under the age of 3! 2010 was a year that was full of challenges, yet full of so many reminders of God's hand in our lives....many great memories stem from that year!!
