"Wish" Necklace Giveaway

My friend Kristen at La Dolce Vita has one of my favorite Etsy shops around! She makes hand-stamped jewelry that is amazing, and also donates portions of her proceeds to a different charity each month.

December's featured charity will be Toys for Tots. The primary goal of Toys for Tots is to deliver, through a shiny new toy at Christmas, a message of hope to needy youngsters that will motivate them to grow into responsible, productive, patriotic citizens and community leaders.

Kristen's new beautiful necklace, offered in the December promotion, has a hammered disc stamped with "Wish" and an added sterling star charm. It's gorgeous!


On sale to my readers first, the necklace is being sold in her Etsy shop for $39.90 with $5 of each sale being donated to Toys for Tots. With your purchase you can help put a present under a child’s tree.

For one week only, she's decided to offer this necklace as a giveaway to one of my lucky readers!

    hi. i found you from Jenn's blog... My Kids Are My World... I saw that you, too, followed her blog.

    I stopped by and found this great contest and this BEAUTIFUL necklace and the chance to help Toys for Tots, we donate a toy every year. :)

    I would love to have this necklace... so I'm following all the directions...

    First... My wish for this years holiday season is NO STRESS! No stress for anyone in my family... no financial stress, or holiday buying stress or family stress... just happiness and joy and being together to enjoy this wonderful time of year.

    And my less mushy/emotional wish would be that my children get everything they want and dream of. They are only little once and this is so magical for them, I hope they are happy when they wake up Christmas morning... that will just be perfect!! :)

    I'm off to post about your give-away and great blog you have... and I'll be back.

    glad I found your blog... and your contest.

    have a great day!!

I also wish that everybody will help their neighbors or those they know who have been affected by our economy to have a Merry Christmas. Thanks for a great giveway!

    My husband goes overseas to visit his mom every Christmas. My daughter will turn 18 this year on Dec 31. Her dad has missed the last 6 of her birthdays. I truly wish he would stay home this year and be with her on this, her very important 18th birthday. Soon she will start college and begin the process to be out on her own.
