A Helping Hand and a Kind Heart AND A GIVEAWAY!!!!!!

Through blogging I have met some amazing women. One of those women is Laurnie of "From Orange County... To County Road" When I first starting following her I found her posts hilarious, and always interesting. Then over this summer she held a weight-loss challenge, and while I didn't win I loved the effort she putin to help each and every person participating make a huge change in their lives to a healthier lifestyle.
Well, she has done it again!!!
Laurnie has decided she wants to give back, and is having a giveaway to help others.
The Bloggers Give Back, Adopt-a-Family Giveaway
Each day this week she is hosting a different item, and for every $1 you donate you are entered into the drawing for one of the five prizes this week. All of the money collected will go toward making a Christmas to Remember for a single mother, and her 4 year old daughter, Morgan. You can read more about them here, and find our more details about how to enter.
What a fantastic way for people to win a little something, and help a family in need at the same time! And if that wasn't enough....I am honored to say that Laurnie choose me to help provide one of the prizes! The prize this morning is a custom-designed Illustration by me! You choose the size, so it could be for the front of a Holiday card, as gift tags in  lots of different sizes or even a new blog header! You would provide me with an idea of what you would like your illustration to look like I will design it for you to use however you would like! You can have it be of you, your family or even your pets. Or maybe you just want something cute like Santa Claus on a scooter, or a Christmas Tree covered in your favorite sports teams ornaments! Whatever is imagined, I will create it. Below are some of the things I have done for my own family....

 Some of the other prizes that were offered up this week were wine charms, A Starbucks iced tumbler and giftcard, and now my illustrations! Who knows what this girl has up her sleeve for Thursday and Friday! (Plus, you just have to enter by Friday and you qualify for ANY of the giveaways! Only $5 will enter you in all 5, and of course give you that warm fuzzy feeling that only from helping someone out!
 Please everyone, head over right now and enter!
It's a great cause, and you can really win some great prizes!
Spread the word to others too, place it on your own blogs!
you won't get extra entries for re-posting about it...
but it's for a great cause and could make a very real difference in a family's lives!!!

Happy Holidays everyone!!!
