My first giveaway...and I am excited!! (giveaway is closed)

Let me introduce you to Project 320.   This is the third year for Project 320.  Six women have gotten together and decided that they can do something to help others.  These women with the help of many others have already raised enough money to build three wells in two years, and this year they are trying to build another one.  I hope my giveaway (keep reading) on this blog will help contribute to Project 320 meeting it's goal of building a well.

Today I...

Took a shower.
Brushed my teeth.
Filled the coffee pot.
Filled the Christmas tree stand.
Ran the dishwasher.
Ran the washing machine.
Used the toilet.
Washed my hands.
Did some more dishes.
And lots more laundry.
Rinsed salad greens.
Ran baths.
Topped off my iron.
Fed my kids glasses of fresh, clean water.

Water, water, water...

Is it fair that today I whine & worry over trees & toys,
when today 4500 moms just like me are worrying whether their
children will live or die?

Over contaminated water?

When I think about how healthy and safe my family is, I have no worries.
I need nothing.
I am so blessed.

But those other moms need us.
Together, we can relieve some worry. (from Project 320)

The founders of Project 320 have put out the call for bloggers to offer giveaways with the hope that enough money is raised to fund a well through Charity Water. The founders of Project 320 are hoping for 50 blog giveaways and ten entries per blog or more of course! That would be enough for a well!  Would you be one of my ten?   Here is the deal...for every $10 dollar donation to the Project 320 well you get one entry into this blog's  giveaway.  You will be giving directly to Charity Water and each donation is tax deductible. 

Here is the giveaway...and if I could I would enter because the goodies are awesome! :)
Jill is the owner of Modern Prints on Etsy.   Jill is a fellow adoptive mom and blesses so many people through her business! I love her prints. I have ordered a couple of her prints and they are beautiful!  Perfect for you or for a gift! Jill has graciously donated a $20 gift certificate to her store to this giveaway.  Here are a few examples of her work!

Also, included in the giveaway is a necklace from  i Heart Maps.  I met Kelley at the Marketplace to benefit the Kilgoris Project.  Her jewelry is beautiful.  What is so wonderful about Kelley's store is that she always gives 20% of her profits to the Kilgoris Project or Wine to Water. You pick a location that is special to you and Kelley makes a beautiful necklace.

Here is my bracelet from i Heart Maps. I love it!

I wrote a post about places to shop this Christmas. The next gift comes from one of the places I suggested to shop... Wise Abe. I love everything in their store and when you buy from them you know that your money is also going to help support Compassion's Leadership program.  So, it was hard to pick one thing to include in this giveaway from Wise Abe but I did it! A beautiful burlap pillow. 

 You know you want to enter! For each $10 you donate to the Project 320 charity water site you will receive one entry into this giveaway. Leave me a comment to let me know you did.  Also, for an additional entry you can share this giveaway on fb or your blog but be sure to leave another comment letting me know you did that.  This giveaway will be going on until Monday, December 26th at 12:00 am EST.  I will announce the winner on Tuesday, December 27th! Would you please consider donating to Charity Water?  Just $10 can change a life forever!  Please take a moment and give clean water for Christmas!

Merry Christmas!
