Breast Cancer Awareness Month and a Giveaway

Winning stuff rules.  Believe me, I know - I just spent a weekend in Vegas because my boyfriend won a radio contest.

I can't offer you tickets to see Miley without a shirt in Sin City, but I'm giving away something even better: a chance to win a pair of handmade, pink earrings and an opportunity to contribute to the fight against breast cancer.

So Miley, you can keep your pasties!

My pal Kristy is a wizard at jewelry making; she studied metals and jewelry in school and is to jewelry what MJ was to basketball.  After tantalizing her Facebook friends for years with her incredible handmade stuff, she finally opened her online store, Simply Sacha.

I've already bought a pair of her Maryland flag earrings for myself.

But I believe in sharing life’s joys (unless it’s chocolate; then you’re out of luck).  So in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month next month and to support awesome people in this world, Kristy and I are giving away a pair of her pink breast cancer awareness ribbon earrings.

All through the month of October, Kristy is also donating half of the proceeds from ANY pink pair of earrings purchased (including the ones we’re giving away) to the Susan G. Komen for the Cure Foundation.  So even if you don’t win these earrings, you should still check out her site.

(Don't worry, she's making us all look bad.)

I can't express the overwhelming amount of respect and admiration I feel for those who are fighting/have fought cancer, but I’m sure you don’t need me to.  We all need a little help once in a while so why not give yours?  And unlike those charity 5K’s that people like me are always bullying you into, you’ll get more than a cheap T-shirt and three days of leg stiffness for it!

To enter the giveaway, just use the widget below.  It’s pretty easy to figure out but if you can’t, I can send you an instruction manual along with a “How to Chew Solid Foods” pamphlet.

... Just kidding.  But seriously, you can enter to win three ways: by tweeting about the giveaway, following me on Twitter, or by leaving a comment on this post about where you'll wear your earrings if you win (or you can do all three!).  Once you've picked your poison, just use the widget below!

I’ll keep the contest open through Wednesday, October 2, and randomly pick a winner on Thursday.  Weeeee!
