Share the Message Giveaway ...

As we head into October am I not only thinking about the beautiful fall foliage which awaits, but I am also seeing 'pink'.  October has been declared 'Breast Cancer Awareness Month' around the world and the color pink during the month stands for hope and strength.  Breast cancer has touched all of our lives in some way or another so let's spread the word about early detection and mammography.
 
To help promote breast cancer awareness month, I will be giving away three brand new Longaberger pink scarves.  These gorgeous scarves in gradient shades of pink are 75"l x 42"w.  A portion of the proceeds from these scarves was donated to the American Cancer Society.

All you need to do to enter the drawing is be a follower of my blog, like Donna's Designs on Facebook and leave a comment on this post by Saturday, October 13, 2012.
 
I will select the winners on Sunday, October 14, 2012 using random.org and will give them 48 hours to contact me via email.
 
Please spread the word to your family and friends about October being 'Breast Cancer Awareness Month' and the importance of being screened.  If you know someone dealing with this disease, please reach out to them - your support would mean everything.  This is a cause I am passionate about and I'm proud to display my pink ribbon this month.
 
Good luck and thank you for sharing part of your day with me.

You are such a generous soul! Your creativity and beauty already inspire me in so many ways ~ a stop by your blog is like a breath of fresh air and stopping to admire IRL beauty that we can't see here :) Such a beautiful cause - we walked this walk with my mom, bless her heart - a battle but always fighting like so many lovely ladies. *Blessings to you*

Hi Donna: What a lovely giveaway for a worthy cause--I'm in! It was nice to hear from you over at my blog--I love 'Heavenly Blue' morning glories so much--that sky-blue color is so pretty. Glad to hear you like them, too! Here's to a fantastic week--I am working on painting some furniture projects--forgot how long it takes for all those coats of paint and sealer to dry! But progress is being made.
