Drawing: Try for a Chance to Win


After giving this much thought, I decided to offer a free raffle drawing -- all for a good cause!

 Here's the rules:
  • 1. Drawing will run from now until the end of the month (6/30/05 Midnight Eastern Time).
  • 2. To be included in the drawing you must leave a message at this journal entry here with a working email; or email me stating you'd like to be included. 
  • 3. All the names will be collected and one name will be drawn. The winner will receive a pair of crocheted earrings, similar to Miss Pickles' earrings as pictured here. The bead work will be pink, as that's the chosen color for Cancer Awareness.  (I reserve the right for artistic flair & changes.)  I will then send a cash donation to the American Cancer Society in the winner's name, or (in memory of) another name that the winner provides.
  • 4.  The winner agrees to allow me to contact them to tell them they won.  Winner will then provide me with mailing instructions.  (I don't know if there's any laws for this since no money is exchanging hands except for a donation to the American Cancer Society.  So until someone can tell me for certain that I'm breaking a law, lets leave this drawing open to any place in the world!)

    The value of the earring prize is priceless ... it's in memory of my Sister-in-law.  (No, the wires are not real gold.)  No cash/monies will be going to the winner.  Donation amount to be made to the American Cancer Society is at my discretion.
  • So, it's that simple. Leave a message, or email me. Spread the word -- this is a good thing :)

    Hi Dee,

    Great idea.  I've lost many family members to cancer: grandmother, mother, father-in-law, mother-in-law.  I also have a sister and sister-in-law who have successfully fought it off, due in part to people like you who have supported research into treatment and cures.  Thanks for keeping us cancer aware.
