Giveaway Hop Fundraiser for Shelley Mingo--Win a $150 WorkTop, Gift Card & Book Bundle

As part of the blog hop for I Am A Reader, Not A Writer, you can Enter to Win a WorkTop from The Original Scrapbox worth $150 and a Wal-Mart gift card book bundle AND help the Shelley Mingo family this Christmas!For U.S. residents of the lower 48 states only.

A little over two years ago in August 2009, Jordan Mingo, his brother Jed, and father Ron were killed in a plane crash.

Jordan left behind his wife Shelley and three children, ages 4, 2, and 3 months. Jordan Mingo was only 27 when he died. The Mingo family lost every male family member in one day.

This story has touched me on so many levels. I went to high school with Jed and I’ve known Shelley since elementary school. When Jordan died, he and Shelley’s kids were almost exactly the same age as three of my kids. Taking care of toddlers and babies is the hardest thing I’ve ever done. Can you imagine how much more difficult it would be to do alone?
I want to help Shelley. She is an amazing person who is doing all she can to help provide for her family. She works full time out of her home as a hairdresser, which is great but not enough for some of the large expenses that come up when you’re raising a family and taking care of a home.

We’ve all felt the pinch of these severe economic times. I’m certain many of you are just like me, struggling to pay off medical and dental bills and meet the rising cost of living. So it hurts to want to help someone like Shelley, but feel like your contribution might be inadequate. That’s why I’m hosting this giveaway with an incredible sponsor, The Original Scrapbox Company.

What if we all gave $5.00? What can $5.00 do—such a small amount? That barely buys a bag of chips and a carton of ice cream, but if we multiply that by 100, 200, 300, then suddenly your $5.00 makes a HUGE difference in Shelley’s life.

Enter to win this fabulous WorkTop & Help Shelley at the same time! Giveaway ends December 13, 2011, 11:59pm MST.
