Marathon for the Cure GIVEAWAY!

Some of you have donated to Marathon for the Cure and Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer (Thank you!!). There is research being done now that could find the CURE! And women are getting mammograms who would not be able to afford the test otherwise. I am PROUD to be a member of Team Marathon running Rock N Roll San Antonio for the Cure in memory of my sweet mom, Carolyn.

In honor of her, I wanted to have a piece of jewelry as my first giveaway. My mom loved jewelry. It never had to be fancy or anything like that, but she loved having special things to wear. She would pull out her necklaces and show them to me when I was really little and I would watch her put earrings on in the morning and wish I could wear them :-)

A friend of mine who has a REALLY cute Etsy shop, "The Dangle Shoppe" offered to donate one of her pieces to one of my readers for this giveaway.


Her description: "I call it “Milk chocolate and caramel wire knot bracelet”. The wire is a non-tarnish bronze finish. The side beads are just gold colored glass. It can fit a wrist up to 9 ¼” around. For smaller wrists, they can use a hole farther up the bracelet and let the end dangle.


Milk chocolate?? Yes please! Go to her site and look around. She has a lot of great pieces. I won't lie- I really LOVE the pink drop bracelet and all of the earrings! Want!!

To the guys, I know this probably isn't your "style" ;-) but I am sure there is a lovely lady who you may know that deserves this, right?

HOW DO YOU ENTER?

REQUIRED:

1. Go to The Dangle Shoppe's Etsy Page and look around and come back and tell me what your favorite piece is!

Looked around the Bangle shop on the Esty Site and really liked the small copper wire knot bracelet. I would have to say though that I liked the one on your give away the best... it was something different that you don't see all the time.

I feel good about making a donation to the Susan G. Komen fund. Crystal is working hard to get ready for this marathon and she deserves our support. Thank you Crystal for choosing to raise money for cancer research.

Shannon said...

I posted Crystal's information on my facebook page for all my friends to also have the opportunity to donate. I think spreading the word can only help the cause.

My mom died of breast cancer, I was 21 when she was diagnosed. I'll never forget her fight with the disease, she never gave up and always stayed positive.
I remember her signing up for a study in Boston, she never knew if she got the real medicine or the "sugar pills" but she did it for me and my 2 sisters. Her hope was they would find a cure so we would never have to go through what she went through.
I have decided to change my eating habits to eat more clean and make exercise part of my daily routine. This is not a disease I ever want to have to fight in my life.

So I looked at the etsy page and I really like this necklace. Drip Drip Drop-grey drop pearls with glass drop. It is really pretty. Does this count as an entry?

I also just became a follower of your blog!

Sorry one more comment. One of my great aunts died of breast cancer. I never knew her, but her first name was Carol and my middle name is also Carole. I was named after her and another grandmother. Even though I never knew her I have heard wonderful stories about how she was a wonderful singer and was kind too everyone. Her life was cut short for this disease and I am so grateful to you Crystal for all you do to try to raise money to support the cause.

I joined your blog!! I read about your trip to NH and was so happy that you had a good time. I was happy you were there to run the 2 mile lap with our family!! Miss you!

I LOVE and want desperately the purple and cream swirl bead bracelet.

Michelle said...

AND I am now a proud follower of your blog.

A good friend of mine is in the process of losing her mom to breast cancer. And she's not even that old. It's so sad. You're fixing it! Way to go C!

I like the Leather Bracelet with Rose Pink Glass Beads. Very pretty!

Natalie said...

I now follow your blog :)

Natalie said...

I posted your information on Facebook for all the world (or at least my friends) to see!

I really like the the small topaz teardrop earrings! They are adorable. In addition I really like your blog and I am excited for all your running. Breast cancer has affected my life in a couple ways. My Gma and my Aunt have both had it and fortunately both have gone into remission. I am grateful for the care and medicine available, but I hope they can find a cure!

I guess since I already did most of these things I should enter the giveaway too :P I really liked the bronze wire knot bracelet with green crystal accent (http://www.etsy.com/listing/52648222/bronze-wire-knot-bracelet-with-green)

Brittny said...

I've been following your blog since probably the first post! I think it's so cool to see all of your motivation to get out and run. One of these days I'm really going to get back into running too... of course I've been saying that since I stopped running my sophomore year of high school, so I wouldn't hold your breath :P

Brittny said...

I donated money to your marathon fund. Good luck! I hope you meet your goal :)

Brittny said...

I shared your giveaway on Facebook. I didn't get any comments on it and I don't know if you got any hits from it, but I hope you did!

I haven't really personally been affected by breast cancer. But I've seen lots of friends who've had mothers or grandmothers or close friends who've had the disease. One of my mom's best friends had breast cancer earlier this year and it was heartbreaking to hear how hard the treatments were on her. I've heard that there is a vaccine that they are testing that could prevent breast cancer which I'm hoping is completed and approved in the near future! It's a devastating disease and one I hope that I never *do* really have a personal experience with.
