Our first week of STL Gives Back was amazing! Thank you all so much for all the kindnesses that you submitted and, in case you missed it, our winner was Kitty who’ll be getting a paperback copy of In Consequence by Trudy Brasure. Thanks to everyone who entered and a special thanks to Trudy for donating a copy of her novel!
Our giveaways are all fan made items inspired by some of Richard Armitage’s most popular characters. This week’s giveaway, a jet and paper bead multi-strand bracelet, was inspired by Guy of Gisborne and is handmade by me. I’m still finishing it but as a preview, these are some of the materials I’m working with.
Jet beads and parchment paper. Hmmm, how could that say Guy of Gisborne?
Okay, again leave a comment with a kindness that you’ve done or that’s been done for you and your name will be entered into this week’s drawing. Additionally, each kindness generates a $1US matching donation up to $100 to one of the charities supported by Richard Armitage via JustGiving. We’ll draw a winner on Friday at 5PM Eastern Time. Ready? Go!
So Obscura and I have been chatting again and you all know what that means: another SpReAd The Love challenge. Before we get to that, though, we have a couple of things we wanted to talk about. First, as you can see, we have a new space. It wasn’t impossible for us to coordinate posts on two different blogging platforms but it’s definitely easier with my move to WordPress a couple of months ago.
Second, we still have $150US from our Anonymous Co-Conspirator to be matched from the Into The Storm challenge. A $50 donation was made to Doctors Without Borders and we’re part of the way to the $50 donation to the International Red Cross. We’d love for our Co-Conspirator to write that check sometime soon, and then another check for $100 to one of the charities supported by Richard Armitage via JustGiving, but to get there we need kindnesses.
Our challenge this time is very simple. Just tell us either in comments or using the Contact Form on the About page about any kindnesses that you’ve done or that have been done for you and we’ll count them up. Each kindness generates a match of $1US that our Co-Conspirator will donate. These don’t have to be extravagant gestures, anything that makes your heart a little lighter or your day a little brighter counts. To sweeten it even more, each time you submit a kindness your name will be entered into a drawing for a special thank you from the two of us. We’ll be telling you more about that in our next post but in the meantime we want to thank all of you who’ve sent kindnesses our way. This has been such an amazing project to work on and it’s been thanks to all of you who’ve participated this year. Ready to do it again? Let’s go!
