I can hardly believe that this is the SEVENTH giveaway I get to do this month.  I love emailing the winners and telling them CONGRATS YOU WON!!!  It is like I'm getting to be that person that facilitates an auction and I get to tell someone YOU WON!  So fun!


Today is a wonderful giveaway and if you win you will get to go shop and pick whatever you want from NOONDAY!  If you've been around my blog for a while you've heard me talk about NOONDAY and what an amazing organization they are.  Their motto is this:  when you satisfy the needs of the oppressed, your night will become like the noonday.  Amazing!


My new friend Krista wants you to experience NOONDAY as well!  She's giving away a $50 gift card to one of my lucky readers!  Dang that is nice of her!!!  Here's what Krista says about getting involved in such an amazing company:

I was introduced to Noonday Collection right after we had begun our adoption process. In fact, for our first adoption fundraiser, I hosted a Trunk Show. I immediately fell in love with the purpose of Noonday and their incredibly unique and “Anthropology- like” style. Over the course of our adoption God was growing my heart to do more to live out Psalms 82:3. I was looking for a way that I could make a difference in my day to day, stay at home mom life. When a job opportunity came up for me to work with Noonday I knew it would be a perfect fit. My connection with Noonday started with the beginning of our adoption process and a year later, while in country picking up our son, I was able to sit with our Ugandan artisans and see for myself, what a huge difference your purchases through Noonday are making. I was able to hold the sweet baby who was provided prenatle care, and sit in the home of a family and hear story after story of how God is using Noonday to create a pathway out of poverty for them. When I am at Trunk Shows selling their product I remember my new friends and I praise God for the opportunity to live out Psalms 82:3.


Look at her and her sweet new son!

With your $50 gift card you could get yourself a new patchwork clutch such as this one:

Or what if you got yourself this necklace which happens to be on my wish list right now!

Or several of these bracelets that I just can't seem to handle how beautiful they are, and at $12 each you could get all four!

So for this giveaway here is what you can do to enter.  Remember as always you do not have to do all of these things.  You can do as much or as little as you want.  Each thing you do is one entry for you and at noon on Thursday I'll pick one random winner.  For each thing you do please leave a separate comment. GOOD LUCK!!!
