giveaway for a good cause



WHAT: 
A giveaway and donation drive, benefiting Dry Bones Denver
The winner will receive a complete blog makeover for you or a friend ($60 value!), as well as a Dry Bones t-shirt

WHO: 
Dry Bones is a ministry that is run, in part, by my brother and sister-in-law, Matt and Nikki Wallace, but that is not the only reason that it is near and dear to my heart. Dry Bones exists purely to facilitate relationships with and provide resources and nutrition to homeless teens on the streets of Denver, Colorado. Through these gestures, they show the love of Christ. The ministry is operated solely on the generous donations of others, so through this giveaway, you will have a chance to help their efforts in Denver. If you have a chance, be sure to take a look around their website. You are sure to be encouraged.

WHEN:
Wednesday, September 16th - Tuesday, September 22nd, midnight central time

HOW:
To enter the giveaway, simply leave a comment letting me know that you are either a FOLLOWER of this blog, and/or a FACEBOOK FAN. (If you are both, you will begin with 2 entries!)
As always, you can earn extra entries by:
  • Mentioning the giveaway on your blog
  • Grabbing the Giveaway button to the right ----> and placing it in your sidebar

Here is how you can help Dry Bones...
If you would like to donate at least $1 to Dry Bones, I will DOUBLE your total amount of entries. (That means that you could have your name entered up to 10 times in the drawing!)

  17. Hey Sharon, love this! I sure am missing Denver right now so I got excited about this b/c it reminded me of my home away from home. I linked your button on the idea farm and on my personal blog. Also, I follow you on FB and of course donated to Dry Bones. Appreciate the work you and your bro and sis-in-law are doing.

    Keep up the good work! Way to get the word out about Dry Bones and to get people clicking on paypal for a good cause :)
