Blessings Bags Giveaway

One of my favorite bloggers did something truly special during the holiday season last year, touching the lives of so many, and she's at it again this year! Keep reading to find out more about an awesome project needing our help and support. We can really accomplish great things when we work together!

Shane from Whispering Sweet Nothings says:

Let me just start by saying, the blogging community is second to none. You ladies never cease to amaze me when it comes to the support for causes I am so passionate about.

If you were around my corner of the internet during the holidays last year, you may recall my Blessings Bags for the homeless giveaway and how YOU helped me touch 150 lives? I've decided I want to make this an annual tradition!  

No longer will you need to ask yourself: Do I hand him money? But then what will he spend it on? Do I drive through that McDonald's and buy him some lunch instead? Are they even homeless?  It always seems to leave you feeling guilty whether you give in to their pleadings or not.

My first thoughts were in asking friends to donate trial size toiletries. But, unfortunately, with all my blogging pals living across the country (& world), this would be difficult and costly to coordinate. So instead, this giveaway will help to gain donations to purchase items that go in the bag. In addition, I am pledging to match you guys dollar for dollar in what I spend on the items!

Insert these fabulous contributors:

Kelly / Lisa / Nicholl / Chelsea / Erica / Jena / Shirley
Breanna / Sarah / Chelsea /  Rachael /  Kristina / Paige / Anna 

I am overwhelmed with the amount of support I have received this project and am truly blessed to have each and every one of these ladies in my blogging life because I surely could not have pulled this off all on my own! 

My contribution will be a fun prize pack  full of Vera Bradley, Essie Summer Collection, Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette, braided bracelets from my shop. Below are the physical items up for grabs.

In addition, gift cards to all of our favorite places:
Target // Starbucks // ASOS // Bath & Body Works // Etsy // Sephora // Paypal // Amazon

This entire loot will go to ONE lucky reader!

I do hope some of you will follow suit and set up a similar gig in your own community. Trust me, the faces of these people you restore hope in are simply priceless. You haven't truly lived until you've done something for someone who can never repay you, and are perfectly content with that.

There are a lot of links in the rafflecopter form that are not working... about 5, I think...
