$100 Visa Gift Card Giveaway – White Pages Neighbors

White Pages Neighbors

Do you know your neighbors?  Are you friends with them?  We know a few of ours currently, but not quite as many as we did in our old neighborhood.  I am actively working on building friendly relationships with our neighbors, for several reasons.  Not only would it be fun to build a community in our cul-de-sac, but also for safety reasons.

I am happy to announce WhitePages Neighbors, a new free Block Party organizer and contact lookup product to help find the names and contact information for neighbors to promote neighborhood spirit, community partnerships and local safety.

Did you know that despite the fact that most American adults who have neighbors (93%) say it’s important for neighbors to look out for each other’s safety, a new survey conducted online in June 2011 by Harris Interactive on behalf of WhitePages found that more of them can identify most of their neighbors’ cars (47%) than most of their neighbors’ first names (41%) and that more of them (27%) know most of their neighbors’ pets more than most of their neighbors’ kids (24%).  This is sad but true – I can tell you the names of several of the neighbor’s pets (Muffy, Magnificat, etc. LOL), but I don’t know their owners very well!

National Night Out is coming up on August 2nd, which 37 million People participated in last year. In partnership with National Night Out, we’d like to help people plan even more block parties this year to help neighbors get to know each other (organize Neighborhood Watch programs, plan block parties, organize play dates, organize garage sales).

Because of my husband’s profession (a police officer), I know what an amazing program National Night Out is.  Every year, my husband attends the gatherings at various houses in his city.  This is a great program to go hand-in-hand with National Night Out!

The new Whitepages Neighbors product offers an aerial map of U.S. household contact information, including first and last name, mailing address, associated household members, and phone number to help neighbors more effectively get in touch. Going beyond making it easy to look up neighbors’ names and contact information, WhitePages has partnered with the National Night Out (NNO) to make it easy to plan a Block Party within a few clicks without having to worry about tracking down neighbor’s names and contact information by sending personalized postcard invites via the U.S. Postal Service for free. With the survey discovering that 34% of American adults who have neighbors do not feel comfortable asking their neighbors to keep an eye on their home when they go away, WhitePages and NNO hope people will use “Neighbors” Block Party invites to foster relationships that lead to effective neighborhood watch initiatives that promote local safety.

I think White Pages Neighbors is a really neat idea, and I cannot wait to get started.  One feature I really like is that you can claim and edit your own listing – I am big on privacy, so this is very important to me.

Remember: Sunday is the last day to get your Block Party invites out in time for a National Night Out Block Party on August 2nd!

What do you think?  Do you know your neighbors?  Does your neighborhood ever have block parties?

To celebrate White Pages neighbors, I have a fun giveaway below!

  1. I’m excited about White Page Neighbors because I really don’t know very many of my neighbors and maybe this could help me get to know them.
    luckyjd2k at gmail dot com

  2. i am very excited for white pages neighbors because i would love to get closer and come together as a community more and be able to share interesting things with the nice people who live around me! 😀

  3. I do think this is very cool! We used to have block parties but have not for the past few years and have had a lot of new people moving out and in. Id love to be able to use this feature! I feel weird not knowing people that are neighbors as that is not how we grew up.
    Id love to get a party started here in our neighborhood this August! Last time we did a huge Ice Cream social and it went over so great!

    thanks!

  4. I love the aerial map with the names and addresses of my neighbors. My neighbors don’t mingle much and it’s nice to put names with the homes!

  5. Great place to keep in touch with all the neighbors and in organizing any kind of project to keep the neighborhood safe. Love it.

  8. I like White Pages Neighbors because I think it’s important to know your neighbors. You never know when you will need each other.

  9. Andrew Gordon on

    i’m excited because we do block parties anyways and this just makes it easier.

  10. I like the idea of being able to know who lives around me since I only met maybe 3 people that are neighbors so this is a great way to get to know more people and learn other things in the neighborhood I wasnt aware of

    Thanks for the fantastic giveaway

  11. I’m excited about White Pages because it’ll be great for organizing our garage sale in August and the Labor Day block part!

  12. Shell Holland on

    I think white pages neighbors will be useful, because I don’t know any of my neighbors names… and a lot of them I don’t even know what they look like!

  13. Louise Brouillette on
  14. Melissa P. @Mel4Him on

    Very interesting. I think I like it for safety purposes. Knowing who lives around me.

  16. I am excited about that feature as I am the block captain for our neighborhood crime watch meetings that I host here at my home twice a month. It is often times hard for me to contact neighbors as we live in a condo complex so folks are contantly moving in & out. This would help me to contact the new move ins to invite them to our neighborhood crime watch meetings.

    Thanks so much.

  21. its a great way to keep your house and neighborhood safe and get to know a neighbor

  22. This would be great to organize a neighborhood garage sale – get lots of people involved and hopefully get a lot of traffic!

  23. I”m excited because I like anything that helps me get to know my neighbors better.

  24. I am exicted about it because it help me keep intouch with my neighbors and perfect to send out party invitations too.

  25. SnowflakeDay (Audra) on

    It would be good to get to know my neighbors better. We’ve been here for years and I only know one neighbor’s name. White Pages Neighbors would be a start to getting to know them.

  26. I’m excited about White Pages neighbors because it can really help me get to know my neighbors aside from just saying Hi!

  27. This is great! I’d love to use this feature to help build a relationship with my neighbors.

  28. I’m excited about White Pages Neighbors, great way to meet our new neighbors. We live in a friendly community just everyone’s schedule is quite full we don’t get chance to meet and talk. A planned block party would be wonderful.

  29. Follow @EightyMPHMom on [email protected]

  30. I’m excited because I’ve lived here 2 years and yet to meet a neighbor ;( I think this is a great tool to bring a neighborhood together.

  31. Janice Cooper on

    I’m excited because I get to find out whose my neighbors. I don’t know all of them.

  32. I am excited because their search feature is easy to use and will come in handy for the end of summer block party!

  33. As someone who moves relatively often, I’m excited to use it to get a feel for my new neighborhood!

  34. I think this is great because I know several of my neighbors. We are friendly, but I don’t have their phone numbers to reach them in case of emergency. This would solve that problem.

  35. We live in a very small town, and lately there have been a lot of newcomers. This would be great.

  36. I am excited about white page neighbors because everyone in the area can keep in touch and keep updated! This is cool!

  40. I’m excited because our family just moved to Colorado from Ohio and we don’t know many of our neighbors and this will make it easier to learn their names.

  41. Helen Keeler on
  42. This is a cool idea. Everyone here seems to stay to themselves so it would be a nice way to get to know everyone!

  43. In this day and age, you need to know who your neighbors are–I like the idea of being able to find out who lives near me–I am notorious for rescuing roaming pets and returning them safely home–this could be a really helpful tool.

  44. I live in a condo community-very close together and yet I only know my immediate next door neighbor and one other neighbor a few units away and that was only because of the animal connection. I would like to know more about my neighbors and be able to work together to make it a nicer and quieter community for all of us.

  45. I’m excited about White Page Neighbors because it help me to know my neighbors!!

  46. I’m excited about White Pages Neighbors because I’m embarrassed to admit that I only know a couple of neighbors on my block and I would like to get to know the others.

  47. I’m excited about white pages because we do have a national night out party and this really will make it easier to plan.

    • This is not an entry I just wanted to let you know I cannot post about the giveaway on Facebook, it has you marked as spam! I filled out the error report

  48. We have a corner lot and see a lot of the people driving by, but this would be a great opportunity to organize some form of get-together so we could actually know each other. We’d definitely be waiting for much cooler weather, though. We’re in the Southern part of the US and it’s really hot right now. 🙂

    The concept definitely sounds interesting and I think it would foster more doing things together instead of being so disconnected.

  49. I haven’t met many of my neighbors so its nice to know their names, and even their phone numbers in case I need them.

  50. I’m really excited about having a block party — we’re close with our neighbors but we’ve never partied together!

  51. Daniel Thornton, Jr. on

    I am excited about white pages Neighbors because it will help me learn more about my neighbors.

  52. I’m not sure if I like this or not. It seems weird having all that info available. I didn’t know I could find out about my neighbor so easily.

    lkish77123 at gmail dot com

  53. I love this idea. I grew up in a close knit community and I would love to have the same thing for my kids.

  54. @EightyMPHMom on Twitter—[email protected]

  55. I’m excited to use this for a neighborhood gathering so we could all get to know one another better.

  56. I like to look at it and see where all of the people I know from my kids’ school lives! I didn’t realize either that some people from my church live over here! Way cool!

  57. I’m excited about White Page Neighbors because it would help me get to know my
    neighbors better than I do now.

  58. tracey byram on

    White Pages Neighbors would help me organize a block yard sale more easily.

  59. i’m excited for white house neighbors because we don’t have a neighborhood association or clubhouse, so we don’t see each other in activities, such a resource as this would be helpful getting to know people

  60. I can’t say enough about getting to know your neighbors. We not only know our neighbors well, but also know neighbors from the other streets in our neighborhood. We love living here where people are so friendly. Anything that gets people ready to meet their neighbors, I’m all for!

  61. I like this idea because we have some abandoned homes in our neighborhood and are always having to watch out for people who try to break into them! This would be a great tool for a neighborhood watch (if I could just get them to fix my home listing – because apparently the house I am currently typing this from does not exist! LOL!)

  62. Head over to Eighty MPH Mom where you can win a $100 Visa Gift Card! Boy could I use extra money at this time. Hope to win 🙂

  63. ShellieAndBrutus on

    We live in a pretty bad neighborhood. You can smell pot smoke in the air if the wind is blowing just right. My husband is also a cop. I’m excited about White pages Neighbors so we can keep track of all the thugs as well as our nice neighbors in our hood.

  64. Janice Whitaker on
  65. I’m excited about White Page Neighbors because I this could help me meet more of my neighbors.

  66. Joyce Mlinek on

    I am excited about the White Pages Neighbors because today neighbors do not see each other and communicate with each other like in the past. A neighborhood yard sale or block party would be a great idea to help build community

  67. I am excited because we have a bunch of new neighbors we don’t really know. It would be great to get the block together

  68. I am excited becasue I dont know many of my neighbors and this would be a great way to meet and greet!

  69. I think it’s cool because I’m moving to a new neighborhood and this would be a great tool.

  70. Kathy Rambousek on

    The White Pages Neighbors sounds like a great idea! I do know my neighbors and we’ve had a few neighborhoodish gatherings. This sounds like it would help in coordinating everything

  71. I think the idea of letting neighbors get to know each other through a block party is great, b/c it can actually make neighborhoods more safe as people will watch out for each other more

  72. Jacob LaFountaine on

    I like i can find things even if i forget the name of the street the place is on

  73. i just moved and dont know any of my neighbors

  81. I am excited about White Pages Neighbors because I just moved to a new place and I am ready to meet my neighbors! I live on a cul-de-sac which would be a perfect Block Party scene.

  82. I am excited about this because you could use it for so many things: finding out the names of new neighbors, finding out landlord names, help with sending cards/invites, and, in some unfortunate cases, reporting issues to the police! LOL

  83. I’m excited about Whitepages Neighbors because it’s an incredible tool for times of emergencies (we live in high fire danger area AND earthquake country!)

  84. Annalisa Kraft-Linder on

    I am excited about the new white pages because it will be easier to organize the community garage sale.

  85. I love that you get to know your neighbors names because you never know when something might happen and with everyone busy lifes you do not get to mingle with all your neighbors

  86. I AM excited about white pages because it would be nice to have new friends in the new place we live in.

  87. Selinda McCumbers on

    My favorite thing is that it is easy to use and could help with any neighborhood emergencies!

  88. I’m excited because there are a lot of new people in our neighborhood and I haven’t had a chance to meet them yet.

  90. I am excited because we have talked about a block party forever and would love to get to know our neighbors more. We have had a few new ones move in!

  91. I’m excited about White Pages because I really need to get to know my neighbors better, and vice versa. We have so many small kids that play outside here that it is a matter of safety to know your neighbors and have peace of mind that other’s are keeping an eye out for the kids, too.

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  95. I am excited about White Page Neighborhoods because it would be an easy to learn some basic information about the neighbors whom I haven’t met yet. I also like that you can claim and edit your own listing, so you can give out just as much information as you feel comfortable with.

  96. I’m excited because it gives me an opportunity to know those who lives near me and make new friends.

  97. MANDATORY

    I am excited about White Pages Neighbors because it brings neighbors closer together while at the same time keeping your family safe

  98. I’m excited about the White Pages Neighbors because it’s a perfect way to break the anonymity of most neighborhoods, where people are friendly but don’t really take the time to get to know each other. Having a central way to access neighbors’ names and contacts would really be a big assist in organizing block-wide meetings and social events and hopefully lead to a greater sense of community as a result. I think it’s a terrific idea!

  99. Janna Johnson on

    love that it is a safe way to meet new people
    Thanks so much!! Janna Johnson [email protected] [email protected] on gfc

  100. I’m excited about White Page Neighbors because I only know several of my neighbors by their first names, and this displays their last names! Thanks for the chance to win!
    mrsmchappell at gmail dot com

  101. That is an excellent idea. It seems that most people are so busy with work, home and family that neighbors are almost like strangers.

  102. That is a good idea. It seems that most people are so busy with home, work and family that neighbors are almost strangers.

  103. Since I plan on moving soon, it would be an easy way to learn about my new neighbors.

  104. I am excited because we really don’t know our neighbors but would love to.

    Thanks!

  105. I am excited about WhitePages because I will be able to find long lost friends…

    mtdoonmeister at gmail dot com

  106. I am most excited for White Pages Neighbors because I welcome getting to know my neighbors better. We are a military family with no close friends/family members around. It would be nice to know more people that live close to us. This is a great feature.

    bakergurl02 (at) yahoo (dot) com

  107. I love the aerial view with the contact information
    pedidentalasst at yahoo dot com

  108. I only know the neighbors on each side of me so this would be great to find out more about my other neighbors.

  109. I am excited because I never knew all of their names and how many names pop up by me

  110. I’m excited because we just moved 35 minutes away and I’d love to get to know the neighborhood!

  111. Honestly I’m not that excited about it – I really like my privacy and I have enough friends and a handful of neighbors I choose to get to know. There are also many creepy people (it’s a large city I live in) including sex offenders, etc. – I really do NOT want to get to know them better.

  112. Shelley Mitchell on

    I love white page neighbors because it’s helps you keep in touch and track of friends and neighbors.
