looking back now on last year's march of dimes walk, i'm so glad to see how well our team did for our first year! the small three of us raised over $250, which was nearly double our goal! I wish i could figure out on the website how to view last year's donation sheet in order to get exact stats, but i can't :( anyways, i had a good response for the donation giveaway, and this year, i have revamped it to make it bigger, better and down right AWESOME! With the help of some groovy vendors there are more prizes to be raffled off in thanks for your donations to an amazing cause! This year's donation raffle will run through today, April 1st to April 29th, which is the day before our walk. Just take a look below to see what super sweet items are in store!
My cousin Lisa has given one of her super fun "Sugar Plum" Pettiskirts. You can view more of her skirts over in my facebook album, or keep up to date with her crafty ventures follow her blog! Believe me, she's got some nifty stuff in the works you WON'T want to miss. Winner will be able to select size of Pettiskirt upon end of raffle.
Petite Fleurs by Bellasma had graciously donated this adorable Purple Sparkle and Shine headband. You can check out more of her work in her etsy shop (which i LOVE) and be sure to send her a "like" on facebook, and tell her i sent you!
Don't think we left the boys out! We've got an adorable purple tie that your little man is sure to win over the girls of the playground with. These are new for this craft fair season with Carroll Cousin Creations, and the recipient will be receiving the first one ever! Now how is that for sounding awesome?
Of course, I've got to throw something equally awesome in here as well! I will be offering a FULL photo session on location, mini print collection (8x10, 2 5x7s & 8 wallets of same image) PLUS a framed 11x14 of any image of your choosing. Just hit 400 "likes" on facebook, and i thought i would make it BIG for this charity that i fully support.
HOW do you enter?
you can use the "sponsor me" button on the side bar that will take you directly to my personal walker page. From there, you are able to donate in any amount. For every $5 donated to your name, you will receive one entry to the raffle. Example - donate $15, you will get your name entered in to the "hat" (3) times for the raffle. BUT if you donate $20, you'll receive an additional entry, giving you FIVE entries in to the raffle. Please be sure to use your first and last name, as well as a valid email address so that i will be able to contact you once the drawing is complete. Through the march of dimes website, they will have you pay through a credit card or even paypal account. If you would prefer to meet me in person and pay by cash or check (checks payable to march of dimes) please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can figure out somewhere to meet up! Just a reminder - not a single cent will be entering mine or any of these gracious vendors pockets. All proceeds will go directly to the march of dimes foundation.
Thank you so much for your time and donation. I appreciate each and every one of you supporters. The more we can raise, the more we can head towards learning how to prevent premature births. All babies deserve to be born healthy and strong, and with your help, we can start to pave the way.
i hope i'm forgiven by chris for posting this silly photo from last year's walk! but we are seriously the poster children for how much fun we had raising money for a great cause... we had a blast! (and somehow, i don't have the picture of all three of us... how sad! sorry jenny)
