#FlauntYourCause Winner

24 May 2012

A huge thanks to everyone who participated in the #FlauntYourCause link-up.  Whether you wrote a post, left a comment, or tweeted about the link-up, I thank you from the bottom of my heart.  It's the first time I've even hosted a link-up and I didn't know what to expect.  I set a goal of 30 participants, as my 'bar' for wild success.

I do believe that we create our own reality...and what do you know?  We ended the link-up with exactly 30 entries.  Thank you again!

Selfishly, I feel like I won the lotto hosting this link-up.  Every time I saw a new entry, I scrambled to read it, curious about what cause it would contain.  Through this opportunity, I learned more about:
  • Being a CASA {Court Appointed Special Advocate}
  • Down Syndrome advocacy in Australia
  • A missionary making her way to Africa
  • To Write Love on Her Arms
  • American Foundation for Suicide Prevention
  • Erin's Clothing Drive & "Shop My Closet" night
  • Wounded Warriors
  • Abortion prevention
  • Girl Scouts
  • Miles for Hope Brain Cancer walk
  • Love of Labs
  • 5 to Survive
  • Clare's work volunteering in Dominica
  • Rape is Never Justified
  • Bye Bye Beehive Mission
  • Gabriel's Angels
  • Pancreatic Cancer Action Network
  • Girls on the Run
  • Clean Water for the World
  • Shine
  • World Wildlife Fund
  • Missionary work for imprisoned children in Africa
  • Cystic Fibrosis Foundation
  • Locks of Love
  • Blessings in a Backpack
  • Spaying & Neutering Pets
I loved reading about the different causes that bloggers care about,
the causes they donate their time and money toward.
Simply uh-amazing!

Now the fun part is that Lindsay and I pledged to donate $50 to one lucky charity as an added incentive to get involved.  And while I feel like the winner, there will actually be a real winner.  So without further adieu,

Congratulations to Allie, from A Thousand Wonders, who wrote about the cause To Write Love on Her Arms.  What makes this even more awesome, is that Jessica from Lovely Little Things, also wrote about TWLOHA.  So it's like we had a double winner!  

To Write Love on Her Arms is a non-profit movement dedicated to presenting hope and finding help for people struggling with depression, addiction, self-injury and suicide.  TWLOHA exists to encourage, inform, inspire and also to invest directly into treatment and recovery.

$50 will be donated to TWLOHA, on behalf of all the bloggers who participated in #FlauntYourCause.
