100th post giveaway

Alright, I have actually been NOT posting because I couldn't decide how to do my 100th post. Well, I made a decision! My giveaway is going to take the 'road not taken' route.

I am giving away:

A donation to charity!

Please don't run away. You will not get a goody in the mail but I will make a $20 donation in YOUR name to one of the following charities:

www.heifer.org
An organization that provides livestock to third world communities so they can be self-sufficient.

www.friendsofferdinand.org
A race horse rescue whose motto is "Retired from Racing not from Life"

www.cancer.org
American Cancer Society

www.compassion.com
An child sponsorship organization. Donations here will be put towards unsponsored children.

There are alot of other good charities out there, but I chose these because they are varied and betwen the four there has to be one you would like to choose.

Please leave a comment and I will use choose randomly. I know this is not typical and we all love to get a little something in the mail, but I hope you will leave a comment and we can do some good together! PS-if you win and want the gift given in someone elses name (child) or in memory or honor of someone go for it!

That is a fantastic idea!!! Good for you!! gosh I didn't realize you were up to100 posts already!

How is the house coming along? We still have guests- Ray did start work so hopefully he will have a place soon. We met with several families today- all the husband's hours have been cut in half- so they are really struggling!!

Makes us thankful for God's provision and for getting out of dept!!!

Hurrah for you doing this Chez. As a family we have done this for a long time. No grownup gifts, just a chunk to an organization every year. I love heifer international, because I have seen the long standing results from this program. Generations of families helped by them.
Happy Holidays to you!

I just had to come back to say thank you for the comment you just left. You are so correct, it does take time to get collect all these things. I've been buying things for my home for 30 years...it was a very slow process to get it where it is now. It surely wasn't done overnight. And I do spend money on my home more than anything else. I really need to buy some new clothes but I would rather buy home things!!!

What a lovely giveaway! I love this idea.

If you pick my name, please give it to the race horse rescue!

God bless you for doing this as a giveaway too!

Hugs,
Joanne

This is the sweetest giveaway I've ever come across! They are all wonderful charities, but if I win I'd love a donation to be made to the Friends of Ferdinand organization. Thank you so much!... Donna @ An Enchanted Cottage

If it's me I want my boss's name on the American Cancer Society. She's a survivor.
