Can you believe it’s Day 4 already?? We’ve already given away so many awesome things, but even better, we’ve helped several people! I really don’t know how it could get any better than that.
I know y’all are anxious to hear who won yesterday’s giveaway from 31Bits and I really wish I could insert a drumroll right here…. and the winner is…. Arica Colley!!! I was so excited when her name popped up as the winner! Congrats, friend! Arica is probably one of my biggest cheerleaders and she’s been getting the word out about these giveaways so it made it even more exciting that she won!
So now, onto Day 4. Going into this week I knew of 3 companies that I immediately wanted to highlight, fashionABLE (from Monday), 31Bits (from yesterday) and Toms (coming tomorrow!!). So I’d thought about only doing giveaways on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday…. but the more I thought about it, the more I really wanted to do this all week long! So, Ben and I set out to find a couple more companies that we liked and could really stand behind. Sevenly (from Tuesday) came up pretty quickly and the more I looked at that one, the more excited I got about it (since Monday, they’ve funded NINE rescue missions!). So, I just needed one more. And then, Ben found Out of Print Clothing. At first, I was really confused. I didn’t see how in the world this would help. Plus, I didn’t know what their name meant! But, as soon as I read their mission, I was sold. They print shirts and different items with the covers of old and well-known books that are no longer in print (the artwork, not the books themselves). And for every item sold from their site, they donate a book to a community in need of books because they may not have access to them. Um, for this girl that grew up reading and would get lost in the pages of a book every day if she could… that’s awesome.
So, I loved getting all of the comments about this week of giveaways that you guys left on Monday (no really, getting comments on the blog is seriously SUCH a highlight for every post that I put up!). So, I added that as one of the entry options below. BUT, you must go through the items in the box below for it to count. If you’d like to leave a comment without entering, I’m great with that too… but they have some pretty awesome shirts on their website so it would be totally worth it to enter! :-)
Happy Thursday, everyone!
PS – Thanks so much to all of you who have been participating and spreading the word! It has made my week that we’ve been able to introduce these companies and the lives they’re helping to more and more people each day!!
