Give and you shall receive {giveaway!}

in giveaway

In my 26 (and almost 1/2) years, the wise Mama Everythingtarian has taught me many things:

Sprite + saltine crackers are the cure for any illness

NARS orgasm blush is the ONLY blush (another wise woman by the name of
G’ma Everythingtarian believed this too before she passed away)

Donny Osmond is the ultimate sex symbol

never pay full price for clothes at Target or Gap

don’t follow trends – start them!

However, most importantly, Mama (and Daddy!) Everythingtarian have taught me how necessary and worthwhile it is to give back to others. I am blessed with so many things in my life others are not, and I firmly believe sharing our blessings – money, time, family, assistance, friendship, whatever you can – is one of the utmost best things we can do.

That is why I am here today.

If you didn’t see his most recent guest post already, my friend Brett needs YOUR help!

From August 4 – 7, 2011, Brett is going to be riding 300 miles
to raise money for The AIDS Network as a part of
the Wisconsin ACT Ride 2011!

I am so proud of him for supporting such a worthy cause and want to do my part to help. He needs to raise $1600, all of which go to providing HIV/AIDS education, prevention and care services to anyone affected or touched by HIV/AIDS. Pretty amazing stuff, no?

Anyways, I’ve decided that if you help me help Brett, I will give away a fun prize package. For every $5 you – my lovely Everythingtarian readers – donate, you’ll be entered to win this massively awesome giveaway package, which is roughly worth $150!  Yeah, I don’t mess around.

…and a homemade batch of {Accidentally} Perfect Vegan Cookies made by moi

…and a Bullfalls Brewery beer mug (because that place rules)!

Here is all you have to do:

(1) Go to Brett’s donation page and donate as much or as little as you want ($5 minimum).

(2) Come back here (this post) and leave me a comment letting me know how many chances you get to win this lovely prize package (for every $5 you donate, you get 1 chance – do the math)

(3) You have until Friday, June 24th to donate and enter. I will announce the winner that day.

Thank you all in advance for your support! I have amazing readers who do amazing things, and I am so grateful for all of you each and every day.

And remember: give baby give, for in giving, you receive so much more.

I just watched ‘Rent’ (again) and then read your blog post; seemed like a sign, so I donated. Good luck, Brett!
