So Loved Shirt Giveaway!

 
I am very excited to announce that I am hosting my first giveaway! I have been trying to set this up for a while, but it took me a while because it is very important to me that whatever I give away supports my passion-orphan care. And so, I came to the So Loved shirt!
 
Here is the info about So Loved and how it was started. The description is from the site, Ni Hao Y'all.
 
"Created in 2010 as a way to raise funds to bring Esther and Poppy home (from China), So Loved was offered as a one-time-only t-shirt. But after Esther passed away  while still in China, we reconsidered, and wondered how we might be able to use So Loved in a way to honor our beloved daughter.
 Relaunched as a charity tee, So Loved is now sold with 100% of the proceeds going to benefit an orphan in China with a heart defect.  A child just like Esther.
In December of 2014, $2,200 was donated to Morning Star Foundation to fund the surgery of a child in their care. Morning Star will continue to be the beneficiary of all So Loved products purchased through July 31, 2015." 
I just love the mission of So Loved! You may be interested to know that the founder, Stephanie, is also the founder of No Hands But Ours.
For some nicer pictures of the So Loved shirt (this one turned out kind of blurry) including the back of the shirt, go here.  The winner can get this in either the women's or girl's size, in case it is to be gifted to a younger sibling or friend.  If you win, you will need to send me your name, address, and size. If you don't feel comfortable with that, then please don't enter.
Without further ado, here is where you can enter the giveaway! Let me know if you encounter any problems and good luck!

  2. I like your blog the way it is Christine! I would post more pictures if I were you. :) And I think you should make a video of you and someone else doing a challenge. :) That would be fun.

    Love,

    1. Thank you for the suggestions, Ashley! I used to post a lot of pictures (if you look back in my December and February archives, you'll see a lot of that.) Lately, our schedule has been more laid back, so I haven't had as many to post.
      What kind of challenge video do you mean? :)
      I will go and look at your new blog and follow right away!

    2. Okay. :) Like the smoothie challenge, not my hands challenge, or the what's in my mouth challenge.
      Thanks for following my new blog! Do you like the design? :)

      Love,
      Ashley

    3. Oh, ok. Maybe someday! I'm not that good at that sort of thing, though. I don't even have a camera. ;(
      Yes, I love the design! Very cute.

      Delete
    4. Oh okay. You don't have a camera? How do you take the pictures then? :) I just thought the challenges would be something fun. ;)

    5. I usually either use my phone or my mom takes them. :) Yes, it would be. Maybe someday!

  3. Hello again dear Christine! I am a new reader of your lovely blog and look forward to each of your posts!
    I would love to enter your sweet giveaway, if I may... I just love the story behind this pretty T-Shirt and how you wanted something special and meaningful for your first giveaway!

    Blessings and much love in Christ to you!

    1. Thank you, Kelly! I followed your blog, too. I just have to say I LOVE your design! It's beautiful.
      I'm so glad you like the T-Shirt! I want one myself. The story behind it hit home for me because I personally knew a little girl who was adopted from China and knew the love of a family for only five months or so before she passed away in the hospital due to her heart defect.
      Thank you for your sweet comment! :)

    1. Aww thank you so much, Allie! I love your blog, too. And I'm glad you like my advocacy blog-I wasn't sure if anyone was actually reading it. Speaking of which, I need to get another post up there.
      I was glad to see your latest post and read that Carlie is doing well. She's been in my thoughts and prayers! Do you know if she will need any more surgeries in the future?

    2. If her artery's continues to grow, then she will hopefully be able to have her 'fontan' sometime in the future. Thank you so much for praying for her!

    3. Ok. Thanks for the update! I will keep following her journey. <3

    1. I honestly don't remember. I was trying to figure out how to do something else so I was researching online, and I stumbled across directions for how to get the emoticons up and thought I'd try it. I'll try to find the link to the instructions for you. :)
