Day 9 of 12 Days of Carlee’s Christmas

Thanks so much for stopping by for the ninth day of my BIG giveaway! I am BEYOND BLESSED to work with some amazing companies who have offered up some of their awesome products. Not all of the giveaways are necessarily sponsored by the companies (meaning, some of the stuff I had at the house and wanted to spread the wealth), but even still, they are all companies I love and want to spread the word about.

Just a word of warning: Make sure to stop back daily as I will be having a new giveaway every day for the next THREE days and would hate for you to miss out on any of them. Also, some of the entries are available daily (ie tweeting about the specific giveaway, pinning a picture on Pinterest, etc), so if it is an item you are super stoked on, I’d recommend entering as many times as possible.

Day 9 - 9 Pura Vida Bracelets


Source

As I am sure you have come to learn, I love to rock a bracelet (or ten) at all times. If you haven’t heard of Pura Vida Bracelets before then you are missing out! A couple friends from San Diego went to Costa Rica during a college Spring Break trip. As they were leaving they saw some guys on the street selling simple string bracelets. They asked one of them if they bought 400 if they guys would be able to supply them. Little did they know, this would be the start to an amazing partnership. The company was created and the rest is history. [And here is more of that history if you're interested.]


You are able to shop by color, design and even charity. I LOVE that charities can team up with Pura Vida to raise awareness and funds for their organization!

I'm STILL rocking these 6 Pura Vida bracelets I put on my wrists ~9 months ago

Well, every once in a while I go on a Pura Vida buying binge and order tons and tons. I currently have a bowl full of brand new bracelets that I thought I’d offer up as giveaway prizes. There will be nine winners, each of which will receive a Pura Vida bracelet (the color(s) will be selected at random).


a Rafflecopter giveaway
As with all of these giveaways, they will run for seven days. The winners will be selected on the eighth day. This one will run through December 15th at 11:59pm. The giveaway is open to US residents only. The winners will be contacted via the email address associated with their Rafflecopter account and will have 24 hours to claim their prize. All entries are verified, so please be sure to complete them or a new, random winner will be selected.

Enter early and often; some of the options can be done DAILY
Best of luck to everyone who enters!

A friend of mine passed away this summer at age 31 from Inflammatory Breast Cancer leaving behind 2 babies under the age of 2 and a loving husband. We donate to IBC Research in Ashleigh's name so that the most deadly breast cancer can stop being the least funded.

I pay tithing each month to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. They are one of the first responders to every disaster and they are wonderful at constantly giving welfare relief.

I always donate to the Appalachian Trail Conservancy - the AT changed my life in so many positive ways. I also give to our local animal shelter every year. I volunteered with them for a few years and it was so helpful to spend time with tiny creatures who thrived off my love and affection during the years I was battling depression.

AHA and Girls with Sole Cleveland

Tami said...

The wounded warrior project.

Karee said...

It is always hard for me to pick just one charity since they are all so deserving! I think I would have to donate to Oregon Health and Sciences University Knights cancer center. I am currently pursuing a bachelor's degree in nursing at OHSU and I am very proud to be a part of the amazing medical community there!
