CommonThreadz **Giveaway**

I have been thinking for awhile now about hosting another giveaway. But not just any giveaway -- I want to give something that helps others in need. Last month when the winner of the $50 TOMS Gift Card was chosen, I was unbelievably happy. Knowing that a pair of shoes was going to the winner and a child in need seriously made my day.

So, I spent a little time searching the web and stumbled upon CommonThreadz.org.

"CommonThreadz is a nonprofit helping orphans & vulnerable children in developing nations to reach their full potential through the empowerment of the children, their caretakers & the local grass roots community organizations that support them." (From their site)

They have 3 different types of t-shirts that support these children, as well as bracelets and skirts. The 3 types are:

The Signature Collection: Socially conscious t-shirts with designs donated from leading artists around the world. For every t-shirt you buy, we give a school uniform to an orphan in Africa!
The Orphan Collection: Unique t-shirts designed by orphans in Africa. For each Orphan Collection t-shirt purchased, we are able to feed an orphan for 1 month!

The CelebriTee Collection: Eco-friendly t-shirts designed by celebrities and in collaboration with artists. For each CelebriTee you buy, we give a school uniform to an orphan in Africa and $5 to the charity of the celebrities' choice.

I will be giving away one item (up to $38) from CommonThreadz.org!!

1. Follow my blog. (1 entry)

2. Visit www.CommonThreadz.org
