The Greatest Raffle of All Time, Methinks

You know I’ve been working with the Huggies Every Little Bottom program, right? (If not, you can catch up here, here and here.) Well, I’ve partnered up with several of my very favorite shops and companies to provide you a super fun raffle of sorts, which will benefit families struggling with diaper need.

Here’s the deal. I want to raise money for the LA Diaper Drive. Lots of money. If you decide to help me out with my cause and donate $5 (LESS than cost of one pack of diapers), you will be entered to win a mighty fine prize pack. What kind of prize pack, you ask? Well, let me show you!

With a donation of $5, you will be entered to win:

One pair of Gap jeans (Up to $90 value)
The Fast, Healthy Beautiful Set from Lock & Mane ($200 value)
A dry shampoo of your choice from DryShampoo.com (Up to $25 value)
One Apple and Bee Foldout Cosmetic Bag ($50 value)
A $75 gift certificate to Pencil Shavings Paper (Have you seen Rachel’s personalized lunch boxes, iPhone covers, and lucite trays? ADORBS.)
A $75 gift certificate to Shop Pretty Mommy (Honest to goodness, the majority of my purchases in 2011 have been from this shop.)

Yep. $500 worth of fantastic products for a $5 donation. And just think – whether you win the prize pack or not, your 5 dollar donation will put clean, dry diapers on a baby who otherwise would be spending the day in a wet diaper, or even worse, one that has been reused several times. (Can you imagine?) 5 dollars, you all. FIVE DOLLARS. Please help me to help families struggling with diaper need.

Rules for the raffle.

In order to be entered to win, please donate $5 dollars here.


You are more than welcome to donate more if you want; every $5 increment will give you another entry. (For example, if you donate $20, you would have 4 entries in the raffle.) After you make your Paypal donation, please leave a comment on this post letting me know. When the raffle ends (October 31, 2011 at 6pm PST), I will randomly choose a winner from the Paypal donations (via random.org), and announce the winner on November 4, 2011.

I hope you will help this wonderful cause, and feel free to spread the word about this raffle. Also, a huge thank you to the wonderful companies and shops who donated goods. I appreciate it so much!

However, my opinions are entirely my own and I have not been paid to publish positive comments.

    Just donated $25. This is a great cause and an issue that has kept me up at night. In the depths of my own postpartum and when my daughter was an infant I used to think of babies who were wearing old disposable diapers all the time. I used to cry in the middle of the night when I would change my newborn and think how fotunate we were that we could afford such basic items like diapers and formula and how many moms could not. It is hearbreaking. Good for you for doing this fundraiser. I hope you raise loads for these babies and their mamas.
