Special Breast Cancer Awareness Giveaway

October has come and gone... but it was Breast Cancer Awareness month.  Thus, my Avon lady (also my mother) and myself went into a frenzy all thru October to make a Breast Cancer Awareness Giveaway.  We both agree that Breast Cancer Awareness should be all year long, not just the month of October.  So... this is my November giveaway. 

Let me explain what you see above, what the winner will receive.  There's a breast cancer ribbon pin, a tote bag (perfect for all your books!!) with sexy lips all over it (12" x 23" x 5 1/2") with a breast cancer awareness label inside, a pink plastic makeup bag (6" x 11" x 2 1/2"), Avon Nail Pro Pink Radiance polish, Avon Mirror Shine Ice Pink nail polish, Avon 24K Pink lip gloss, a check yo' self pamphlet (remember to check yo selves!!!), and the book Promise Me by Nancy Brinker (singed hardback!).   Nancy Brinker is Susan G. Komen's sister.  Promise Me is a memoir of two sisters growing up and one being lost to breast cancer. 

So... one lucky winner gets it all!!  Leave a comment to be entered in this latest giveaway of mine.  Winner's name will be drawn by Jazzy, my dog, from her food bowl the last day of November, 2010.  Time of drawing:  At my own convenience.  Followers get two entries, drop-ins get one. 

And again, thanks, Mom!!


  1. What a great idea, and thanks to both you and your mother! I don't want to be entered in the contest because I already have a copy of the book, thanks to my sister, but I am so glad you both put your heads together to do this!

  2. Super giveaway and an outstanding collaboration with your Mom. A dear friend of mine - Kim Hupp - battled breast cancer for ten years, but lost the battle at age 51. Now, I make sure I have a yearly mammogram.

  3. Great giveaway idea, Tara! Many thanks to you and your mom.

  4. Terrific giveaway idea! Thanks to you and your mother!

  5. Thanks for the great opportunity! Just had my yearly mammo...I always buy new lipstick to celebrate. Am looking for a follower button as I did I miss your blog?

  6. Hi Tara,

    Please enter me in the giveaway. I'm a huge supporter of breast cancer awareness/prevention. I've known too many women who have fought this battle. Some won, some sadly, lost.
