ChipIn & Help out a Fellow Mommy Blogger

A fellow blogger is in need of our help.  Shannon’s 3 year old daughter Emily was recently diagnosed with cancer. You can read Emily’s story here:

That is what the "Chip-In" widget is on the side of my blog. I didn't know I had to write the little blurb when  I was setting it up.... lol. So that is what it's all about. If you donate you get a chance to win some fabulous prizes!! So if you're a blogger I'd suggest grabbing the ChipIn widget and posting it on your blog as well!

I donated as soon as I heard about this so I got to get extra entries to the huge raffel/giveaway. You should check it out. All you got to do is make a donation! There are tons of sponsors and great prizes. All you got to do is go here to enter and READ THE RULES! It took me a while to get all my entries in, but I did it. Go HERE to enter.

I am re-posting this from Melissa’s Family Friendly Reviews & Giveaway’s Facebook page:

From Melissa: I am putting together a big huge giveaway raffle where entries require at least a $5 donation for Shannon’s family in their time of need.

We will be collecting money via and the money will go directly into Shannon’s paypal account.  I will hold the raffle on my blog and I want to post it on as many other blogs as possible.  All sponsors and bloggers WILL be allowed to enter into the giveaway.  I will be the only one drawing the winner so I will not participate.

I will let the giveaway run until the end of February.  Since the funds are going directly to Shannon’s paypal account she will receive them anytime anybody donates/enters the giveaway.

I try to buy my girls (i have 3 school-aged daughters) two or more pairs of shoes; an active shoe, which usually has laces, and a more casual/formal shoe, which usually doesn't have laces.
