Ready, Set......

November 21, 2011

UPDATE: To those that helped us "Spread the Word" and were entered in the Gift Card Giveaway. We do have a winner.......Kathy H of "On My Front Porch Looking In" is the lucky recipient of that Gift Card. Way to go Kathy!!!

Wow, have we received some fabulous donations.

We feel so blessed by the number of people who have reached out to help us “Fill Their Stockings” this Christmas. Truly, we have been just blown away by each and every one of you that has reached out to help us with this effort… thank you all so much.

The best part? We are just days away from kicking off this event – a fundraiser that will make a difference in the lives of some very special children in China this Christmas.

And each of you has an opportunity to help us, help them.

Are you ready?

Here is just a sampling of some of the delicious items that will be featured…


Looks like fun, doesn’t it?

So, here are the details. Starting November 25th and running through December 23rd, each Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, we (Diana, Stefanie, and I) will feature a special product on each of our blogs. That means 3 items each giveaway day, for a total of 9 items every week. The gifts will range from $50-$500 in value – and all of them are fantastic.

How Do I Enter to WIN?
To win any of the featured items for this event we ask that you consider a minimum donation of $5 to the organization that we each represent: Stefanie for An Orphan's Wish, Diana for Pearl River Outreach and me for Half the Sky. But, it is also possible to enter without donating. To do that, leave a comment on the post that includes your name, email and mailing address so we can contact you if you win. Also all winners must have a shipping address in the United States or Canada.

So, you get a chance to win an exciting gift for yourself or someone special on your Christmas list and, at the same time, you can help to make a difference in the lives of orphans in China, halfway around the world.

Sounds fun, doesn’t it?

But right now, just days before kickoff, we need to spread the word about this special event. The more people who know about it, the more money will be raised for these very special children… and that’s a very good thing! If you’d like to help us in this effort and to keep in the spirit of “giving” this holiday season, read on – there just might be something special in it for you, too!

A “Spread the Word” giveaway…


Before we kick off the “Fill Their Stockings” event – to encourage y’all to spread the word – we will be giving away a $100 gift certificate to Tina Steinberg, maker of “unordinary personalized jewelry”. To enter, all you have to do is grab the “Fill Their Stockings” button below and post it on your sidebar, and then leave a comment on this post letting us know that you’ve done so. If you have not visited, you must. And be sure to check out her “Love Touch Collection” – sterling silver charms and pendants with your loved one’s fingerprint. Each design comes with a short inscription on the back. Truly one of a kind!

To double your chances to win the $100 Tina Steinberg gift card, just post on your blog about our “Fill Their Stockings” effort, with a link back to one of our posts detailing the upcoming event. Remember to leave a comment on this post to let us know what you did to help spread the word, and you’ll be entered. Please leave one comment for each entry… so if you posted a button and shared a post, leave two comments.

Fill Their Stockings

Entries for the $100 Tina gift card will be allowed until 11:30pm Eastern Time, Sunday, November 27th. Winner will be chosen at random and announced soon afterward, so be sure to check back often to see if you’ve won!

And remember, the “Fill Their Stockings” event kicks off bright and early on Friday, November 25th!
We are going to have so much fun!
