I have been procrastinating posting this 515th post because I do not have a prize ready and I wanted to have a fun give away. BUT something prompted me to post today despite not being quite ready... read on....
Today I learned that my pal Bernie Berlin is in the running for a $50,000 dollar grant through Network for Good and Parade magazine. To win she has to place in the top 4 in generating the most donations to her charity (A Place to Bark) through the 31st of January. As of today she is #3 BUT there are still 2 weeks to go and the competition is getting fierce. We want to keep her in the top 3. The minimum donation is $10 which is not much to so many of us. Think about $10... its just a couple of Starbuck's drinks, a trip through a drive- thru or a single movie ticket.
So, on this, my 515th post I am issuing a challenge to make a small donation and help Bernie get the dollars she so desperately needs to continue her animal rescue and build the facility she and her husband and planning for. The bonus (in addition to feeling good for helping out) is that if you make a donation, I will enter you an extra time into my 515th post drawing. Just post the reference # for your donation in the comments section and you are entered.
OK, now for the prizes... I will be giving away three prizes as follows:
1- Prize Pack (not yet assembled) full of goodies that I like to use to create art.. vintage wallpapers, book pages, millinery bits, flowers, jewelry, glitter, who knows what else will end up in it. It will be fun and full of inspiration and goodies though!
1- Joli Paquet HOME Banner Kit.. I have 2 left. They are lots of fun and have gotten good reviews from those who got them back at our first Joli Paquet event.
1- "WISH" Banner... this cute banner was made by me out of canvas paper and various papers, ribbons and embellishments a la Pam Garrison's class.
THREE ways to win...
1. leave a comment
2. make a donation to A Place to Bark and reference the transaction # for a 2nd chance to win.
3. BLOG about Bernie and this contest on your own blog and leave me a comment with a link for yet another chance.
As always, be sure you leave me a way to contact you provided you win. I will draw names on in one week on January 23rd. Good luck!!
