It's World Water Day and so today is a great day for a post about water and a giveaway, right?! :)
You should too...and if you do, see below what you could win from ME! :)
I know so many of you who read my blog have the biggest, most giving hearts and I know that if you really took a second to stop and think about what you're doing in giving a small donation, you would know what a huge gift you're giving to someone.
4000 children die a day due to lack of access to clean drinking water...what if that was your child?
It does not make it any more okay for someone else's child to die than it does for my own child to die.
An explanation (and SUPER short, cute and entertaining video that you should totally watch!) about exactly where your money will go from The Adventure Project's website:
"Instead of drilling more wells, we’re using our charitable gifts for something revolutionary – to train and employ handpump mechanics. The mechanics earn an income, bringing themselves out of poverty, and they save lives – turning water back on for thousands of people each year."
Okay, now about the giveaway.
I am giving away this...
*Included are 4 decorative mini-clipboards. I have 4 that hang on my kitchen wall and love them for holding bills, coupons, artwork, notes, etc.. There is also a bottle of Bath and Body Works Antibacterial Hand Soap in the scent Dancing Water. Convenient name and coincidentally my FAVORITE scent from Bath and Body Works! Lastly, (sorry this will only apply to locals or those who would be able to travel to the Quad City Area) I am including a gift certificate for a FREE PHOTO SESSION with me. Want your child(ren) photographed? Your family? Your new baby? It's all free. Check out my Jennie Peakin Photography Website or the blog to view some of my work if you'd like. :)
