Awareness Ribbon Fabric Applique - GIVEAWAY!

This is my FIRST giveaway and I can't think of one that would be more meaningful to me and my family!

I introduced an Awareness Ribbon Fabric Applique Set in my ChichiKids Etsy shop today. I'll be offering an entire line of Awareness Ribbons, but I've started with one that is near and dear to my family. All of my April profits from my Awareness Ribbon Applique sales will be donated to my sister, Rachel, in her efforts to raise money for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society during the MS Walk in Myrtle Beach, SC on May 16th. Why is this an important cause for us? Our father is battling Primary Progressive Multiple Sclerosis. There is NO CURE for MS and drugs to help battle the effects of MS are not effective for Primary Progressive. But we continue to fight for a cure, raise money for research and most importantly ... LOVE my father and SUPPORT his fight.

This year I'm not able to walk for my father ... we don't have a chapter in Europe, so I'm doing what I can to contribute.

The GiVeaWaY!

I'm giving away one CUSTOM Iron-On, Awareness Ribbon Fabric Applique Set in the fabric and personalization of the "winners" choice! The awareness ribbon measures 4 1/2 inches by 3 inches; letters are between 1 and 1 1/2 inches each. There are countless "Colors of Awareness" that have been adopted by groups to bring awareness to their cause. The "winners" applique will be customized to show support for any cause or issue that is meaningful to them!

    The March of Dimes Walk for Babies is near and dear to my heart. My neice, our little miracle baby, was born at 24 weeks! She is now 18 months old and a little chunky cutie pie!

  6. Super cute blog and great idea. I'm off to check out your etsy stuff and become a follower of your blog. Oh, and so many issues are important to me but I am very concerned about children's rights and keeping them safe from sex trafficking and really, any crimes against children.

  10. Beautiful giveaway for an amazing cause :)

    It's hard to pick an awarness ribbon -there are so many! I like the teal for PTSD for my husband though.

  13. I support the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. I am team captain again this year for the Light the Night Walk. I always walk in memory of my Aunt/Godmother, Angela Lorence. Leukemia took her life when I was very young and it's sad for me to say that i only have a few memories of her. There have been many improvements since then, but more research is still necessary!

    Will post a link on facebook in jsut a sec!
