Since all the TV weather people have me beyond panicked with their hurricane coverage and I’m completely nauseous from eating comfort food (aka peppermint patties and wine), I thought it might be time to announce something less END OF THE WORLDish and more totally awesome….

A chance to wine an iPad 2!!!

The contest is sponsored by Vonage’s new “Time to Call App,” which is very cool. The Time to Call ™ App is a free download on your iPhone, iTouch or iPad that allows you to call overseas for incredibly cheap rates with awesome clarity. It looks like this:

And the details are below:

  • * Pay per call and talk for up to 15 minutes to 100 countries for $1.99 or less (excluding applicable taxes)
  • * For an additional 90+ countries, talk up to 15-minutes for $2.99 to $9.99 (excluding applicable taxes)
  • * Bill directly to your iTunes account
  • * Works on Wi-Fi® worldwide
  • * Also for use on high quality 3G networks in the U.S. and Canada
  • * For a limited time, unused minutes can be used for additional calls
  • * No need to be a Vonage home customer, no hidden fees or monthly commitment

This makes it so much cheaper to call your friends, family or fictional TV crushes when they are overseas.

Right now Vonage is having a limited time offer where you can download the Time to Call App and call up to 15 minutes for free. (No purchase required.) More info on that can be found here. Now onto our contest!

Vonage will be giving away to one very lucky Mama Bird reader an Apple gift card for the Apple iPad 2, 32 GB!!

To enter, “Like” the Mama Bird Diaries on Facebook (you can do it over there on the right sidebar) and leave a comment telling me who you would call overseas and what piece of celebrity news you would discuss. (I personally would call Pippa and discuss at length the break-up of Minka Kelly and Derek Jeter. I mean, what went wrong?!)

For an extra entry, tweet a link to this contest that includes @mamabirddiaries and the hashtag #timetocall.

Winner will be chosen at random and contest ends on 9/1, so hurry!

There are actually many other bloggers running their own Vonage Time to Call contests! You can find links to all of those folks at www.callsfromsmartphone.com, so be sure to check them out and increase your chances of winning an iPad 2 via their contests.

Good luck birdies!!
