I'm sure you're all pretty aware by now that I don't normally post on Tuesdays and so you're probably wondering what the heck is going on right now. Well I'm happy to announce that I'm starting a little Tuesday Giveaway series! This will have absolutely no effect on normal M/W/F posting, just something a little extra to bribe you all to keep reading my blog.
Basically each Tuesday I'll be featuring a different Etsy Shop or Small Business or Blog that is eager to hand away free stuff to all of you awesome readers.
(If you're interested in hosting one of these giveaways by all means email me and let me know! LaurenRaeGallagher@gmail.com)
As today is World Autism Awareness Day, we're starting things off with a giveaway that benefits a great Autism cause.
More children are diagnosed with autism each year than with juvenile diabetes, AIDS or cancer, combined. ASD affects over 2 million individuals in the U.S. and tens of millions worldwide. Government autism statistics suggest that prevalence rates have increased 10 to 17 percent annually in recent years.(statistics taken from Autismspeaks.org)
During the month of April, Stella and Dot LLC will donate twenty percent (20%) of the retail sales price of each item in the specially marked Autism Awareness Collection sold to a customer to the HollyRod Foundation, with a guaranteed minimum donation of $10,000. The HollyRod Foundation, a charitable services program of the Entertainment Industry Foundation, is dedicated to providing compassionate care to those living with autism.
One of the readers of my blog, Kaite, works with Stella & Dot and is happy to bring you an opportunity to bag some gorgeous jewelry for free, namely the Spirit Bracelet and the La Folie Necklace pictured below.
(Personally I swoon over the Charlize Teardrop Earrings)
A winner will be picked via a random number generator next Monday and announced at the end of my normal Monday post.
But that's not all. Although absolutely no purchase is necessary to enter this giveaway, Kaite also wanted to offer the following to anyone that sees a piece they CAN NOT LIVE WITHOUT:
