AARP Delivers for Family Caregivers

Beginning June 5, 2017 and ending at a date determined by AARP, family caregivers who share their stories on I Heart Caregivers will receive a $50 gift card, selected by the caregiver, for groceries, gas or the drug store.

Family caregivers are defined as family members or friends who provide unpaid assistance for an older person or adult with disabilities to help them live independently.

Family caregivers agree to complete all required documentation in order to accept their gift card. Offer limited to one gift card per household. Failure to provide a valid U.S. mailing address will result in disqualification from offer eligibility and will be determined in AARP’s sole discretion. AARP retains the right, in its sole discretion, to disqualify any entry for any reason.  By submitting a story for entry, you certify that you have rights and/or permission to share any personal information contained therein, including medical information, personal image rights, and privacy rights, and agree to release and/or indemnify AARP against any claims arising from AARP’s subsequent use of submitted materials in conjunction with the I Heart Caregivers campaign, including without limitation claims that submitted materials violate the intellectual property rights of any third party.
