How about a giveaway? I love giveaways.

I'm feeling a little cheerful today! We've had some beautiful weather lately and I'm just enjoying it like crazy. Even cleaning isn't so bad when the windows are open. Our home study is next week and I know you don't have to clean like crazy. But I just do. And I think that's just natural when a social worker comes to hang out at your house! I just have to! But I'm aiming to be chill and take it in stride.

Anyway, off topic. Let's talk giveaway. Normally I have you guys leave comments for giveaways, but I think I want to try something different. I'm going to wake up tomorrow and draw a number out of the Dollar Mob. If you're in the Dollar Mob, you're in the drawing. If you don't know what the Dollar Mob is, allow me to explain. The Dollar Mob is the group of people who give $1 every week. It automatically comes out of your Paypal account each week. The great thing about the Dollar Mob is that you won't have to remember to come here every week to check in on the family. Life just gets busy sometimes and we forget about blogs. Even some really really cool ones. But this way, even if you forget to pop over your dollar still makes it to a deserving family or project. It's a cool thing.

FAQ's regarding the Dollar Mob:

When does my $1 come out of my account?  On whatever day you signed up for it. So if you sign up today, Friday, then it'll come out again next Friday.

Can I give more than a dollar a week? Yes. All you do is just join it again for as many times as you like. I have some people who give $5, some that do $2. Just whatever you feel good about.

What if I want to donate more to a particular family?  You'll just hit that red donate button on the top right hand side and donate anything above $1 directly to that family.

Up for grabs is this most fabulous set of bracelets. Wood, beads, and feathers deck out this adorable set. Random, I know, but I loved them and I thought you would to. Join away and spread the word.


  1. Hello! Just as you posted this, I posted on my blog encouraging people to sign up! I was a little aggressive. HA HA But this is such a fantastic idea you have. I can't wait to see it grow. : ) Still so jealous that it wasn't my idea! : ) Keep up the good work!
