Bloggy Giveaway......


It's another bloggy giveaway!

The rules are quite simple.
All you have to do is post a comment. How simple is that?! :0)
Contest will be open to U.S. residents, England, Australia and Japan.(Good luck Tia and Laura my international friends! :0))
The contest will run to Sunday Feb. 3rd at which time comments will be closed. To be fair I'll be using a random number generator to choose the winner.

This gift is something really special and YOU will play a very important role in the giving of this gift.

I'm offering ONE little beanie but not just any ordinary beanie. These beanies are made for "special" little ones. Below I will include a couple sample pictures.

I make these little beanies for preemie babies in NICU's and for children who are going through cancer treatments or some other devastating illness.

I think most of us at some point have been touched by a child in one of the above situations. Personally my heart is with the wee ones at St. Jude however, this contest is in YOUR hands.

Now for the FUN part!

I will make ONE of these beanies. Please allow a couple weeks for me to make/ship the beanie. The winner of the beanie may choose to have it sent to either a child who is currently going through cancer treatment/some other devastating illness OR if you have been fortunate enough to not have been touched by childhood cancer then I will send one Preemie beanie to the NICU of your choice. Either way the beanie will be sent in YOUR honor.

There are no wrong choices here folks! :0)

Thats it!

Once a winner is chosen we can work out the details.

Details for you to consider:
Preemie or Child with cancer/other devastating illness
Size: Preemie up to teen
Style: See Samples below for 2 ideas(I do have more options)
Color of your choice

Preemie version

Good Luck!!

What a beautiful story you have and one that reminds me God chooses every mother for every child! Jophie is so very lucky God chose YOU for him! That infectious smile of his is so wonderful to see. I would love to win your contest! My brother and sister in law are expecting their first baby in May at ages 43! After a devestating miscarriage last year we are all thanking God every day we get closer to her due date. A sweet baby cap would be a wonderful guft - I just love the puppy heart one! They are huge doggy lovers too! Thanks for sharing in your blog! I am having a giveaway too!

How very sweet and the perfect giveaway - something for someone else instead of ourselves. I have a special Angel in my life (my 2 year old son has Angelman Syndrome) who has always been as healthy as the proverbial horse, but I would love to have one of these sweet beanies donated in his name.

you da mom! said...

Beautiful post and beanies.

I have had two children in NICU - one stopped breathing after I was induced at 4 weeks due to health concerns and the other was born via emergency c-section at 6 weeks early and then life-flighted via helicopter to a hospital 2 hours away from where I was, which was ironically the same hospital the first one was in.

It would be a blessing to have one of the hats sent to this hospital's NICU.

I have a friend that is awaiting the arrival of twins that may be roomies in that same NICU.

Thanks for the giveaway!

Stop by my place to win a bath set & candles or one of two copies of a book I'm giving away. Don't miss the daily edition of contests galore that I post on my blog.

I would love a boy beanie.

Sara@Sarandipity said...

I think this is a wonderful giveaway! Please pick me. I know several small children who have been in the NICU here in my city and would love to send a beanie there for a sick child.

Suzie said...

What a lucky boy Jophie is to have such an amazing mother. Please donate the beanie to a local NICU if I should win.

My nephew is a three year old cancer survivor. He survived stage 4 cancer and is currently cancer free (although last night he had to go back to the hospital because he is sick). My son has arthrogryposis multiplex congenita and I work in the local NICU to help parents deal with the stress that comes along with that. I could give it to one of the babies there or you could deliver it to your local NICU. Either way it will go to a little miracle baby. :)Thank you for you having such a generous giveaway! I would LOVE to win so someone else can find a little joy amongst the worry of being a new parent with new challenges!

Thanks again!

My son will be 6 next week and has special needs. We are in the hospital so often for tests and appointments, this would really comfort him through some of the things he bravely endures, and his upcoming surgery. Thank you!
