IAC Adoption Agency Presents 2012 Halloween Costume Photo Contest

Pleasant Hill, California (EastBayDaily) — Independent Adoption Center (IAC), the trusted leader in domestic open adoption, is calling all Frankenstein Monsters, Princesses, Cats and Cowboys to join its first-ever Halloween costume photo contest. All current and alumni families of the adoption agency can submit photos from now until November 2, 2012 to contests(at)adoptionhelp(dot)org for a chance to win a $100 Toys“R”Us gift certificate.

The rules of the contest are simple. IAC families can email photos of their children in their Halloween costumes. Submitted photos will be posted to the adoption agency’s Facebook page, where anyone can “like” their favorites. The submission with the most likes by November 2 at 12 pm EST will receive a gift certificate to every child’s favorite store – Toys“R”Us.

“Submit your photos as soon as possible so you can start racking up the likes!” said Schwab. “When we post your photo to our Facebook page, you can also share it with your friends to get more likes. And even if you aren’t a member of the IAC family, you can visit our Facebook page to like your favorite photos!”

The foundation of the Independent Adoption Center is support. As a nonprofit organization, the IAC is dedicated to providing the resources for support and counseling for every family throughout the entire adoption process.

“We think it’s very important to stay in touch with families who have trusted us with their adoption process,” said IAC Marketing Director Ryan Schwab. “In addition to our normal process of offering ongoing counseling and support, we love contests like these because it gives us and the public an extra glimpse into the regular lives of our families.”
