Help Cure Cancer And Win Free Jewelry!

 

Think Pink… Save The Tata’s And Get Free Stuff!

Hello everyone! I hope you are all having a great week so far despite this dreadful weather we are having… Today I have a special request to make from all of you beauties. As I told y’all a few months ago, my sister is currently trying to raise enough money to participate in the 2-Day AVON Walk For Breast Cancer. In order to do so she needs to have a total of $1,800 within one month after completing the walk, which is this weekend (Saturday, May 3 to Sunday, May 4!).  That means that by June 2, she needs to have all of her money collected (otherwise she has to pay it out of pocked!).

So, in an attempt to help out my big sissy, I am going to ask a huge favor of you fashionistas today… If you are able to donate anything, and I mean ANYTHING at all, to help her reach her grand total of $1,800 to help fight breast cancer, it would mean more to me than you could ever possibly know!

Plus, here comes the best part… If you donate any amount of money to help her at all, you will be entered to win any piece of lia sophia jewelry ($100 or less… Sorry ladies, I’m on a bit of a budget these days!) that you want.  The way you donate and enter to win is:

  • Go to Danielle Booth‘s page on the AVON Walk For Breast Cancer website (click here)
  • Click the “Donate Now” button (on the right hand side under the photo)
  • Fill out your information
  • Under the “Personalize Your Gift” heading, specify that you are donating and entering to win the jewelry giveaway via Style by Kristen Blair
  • Click the “Donate Now” button at the bottom of the page to submit your donation!

After you make your donation, my sister will give me your name and email address so I can enter you into the drawing.  I will let you know that I got your entry when she forwards me the info, so if you donate and don’t hear from me, please don’t hesitate to email me (at kristen.booth06@gmail.com) and let me know! I wouldn’t want you to miss out on the free jewels you could win!

So, don’t wait beauties… Donate now to be entered to win your choice of jewelry from the lia sophia catalog! It would not only mean a lot to me, but also to my sister who would be able to participate in the AVON Walk for Breast Cancer for the second year in a row!

Think Pink… Buy A Square To Help Fight Breast Cancer!

 

Hello There Gorgeous!

I hope you ladies are all having a great Friday! Today, I have a little something to share with you all that is very special to me.  As I’m sure you all know, breast cancer is one of the most widespread cancers in the US these days.  In 2014 alone, about 230,480 women and 2,140 men will learn that they have breast cancer and will begin their own personal battle with the horrid disease.  It is no secret that breast cancer is a huge problem in today’s society and that some type of solution or cure for this deadly disease needs to be discovered, and soon.

Avon Walk For Breast Cancer - 2013

Last year my sister participated in the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer where she walked a total of 40 miles in just two days.  She also raised a little more than $1,800 for the cause in addition to devoting an entire weekend to the cause.  I admire her so much for doing such an amazing thing.  My whole family has talked about doing it for years, but the thought of having to fundraise a minimum of $1,800 is just so scary, so needless to say, we never did it.  But last year, my sister picked up the slack our family had been putting down for years and decided to do it.  The deciding factor for her was when one of her good friends (who is ironically also named Kristen!) from work asked her and one of their other close friends, Heather, if they would do it with her.  Kristen’s mom had just won her battle with breast cancer, and she really wanted to do her part in helping find a cure so that more people could beat the disease such as her mom had.  The road to raising the money was extremely hard for my sister, but at the last minute (after lots of stress and panic attacks!) she finally made it, and actually exceeded the $1,800 requirement.

Then came what most people think of as the hard part… The actual walk! While my sister wasn’t all that concerned about the walking part (I mean, after all, she did run everyday and was in really good shape!), but that turned out to be a killer for even someone in as fantastic shape as she is! After struggling to walk and being in a ton of physical agony for days and days after the walk was completed, she was finally back to normal and that is when she said she wanted to sign up for the walk in 2014, also.  She has such an amazing experience and said it was one of the best things she had ever done.  All of this really moved me and made me want to do it also, so I decided I was going to sign up also, but then, much to my dismay, the walk ended up falling the weekend before my graduation this year (and the weekend before finals…) so I am not going to be able to do it.  But, you better believe I will do anything and everything in my power to be right there with her in 2015!

Fighting Breast Cancer One Square At A Time Fundraiser For The Avon Walk 2014  Why am I telling you all of this, you might wonder? Well, in an attempt to raise money for the cause, my sister has teamed ud with Lia Sophia to bring you a fundraising raffle called “Fighting Breast Cancer One Square At A Time”.  What the heck does that mean, you might be thinking? Well, she is selling 100 squares for only $10 per square, which will total $1,000 after all squares are sold.  With this money, $700 of the $1,000 will be donated to the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer, and then the other $300 will go to the first and second place winners. The way to win is by having your number (which will be a number somewhere within 1 through 100) drawn in the raffle drawing after all 1oo squares have been sold.  What will be prizes be? Well…

The first place winner will receive:

  • $200 in FREE jewelry from Lia Sophia, and

The second place winner will receive:

  • $100 in FREE jewelry from Lia Sophia.

And it doesn’t stop there! Even if you aren’t the first or second place winner, there are other prizes to be won also. These include:

  • 5 items priced at or below $100 for only $15 (you get your choice of any of the items priced at or below $100 in the current Lia Sophia catalog!), and
  • 5 items (any items in the ENTIRE catalog!) for half price.

A few facts about breast cancer…

  • Ever 3 minutes, someone in the US is diagnosed with an invasive case of breast cancer; and ever 13 minutes a life is lost to the disease.
  • 39,520 women and 450 men in the U.S. will lose their life from breast cancer each year.
  • There are more than 250,000 women under the age of 40 in the U.S. living with breast cancer, and over 11,000 will be diagnosed in 2014 alone.
  • Survival for men with breast cancer is similar to survival for women, when their stage of diagnosis is the same.
