Making Strides: Coconut Water Raffle

I was so relieved when I received my good news yesterday. I know a number of you were, too, and thank you so much for caring. Morgan at Life After Bagels even wrote a post about it. I know I’ve said this, but you guys are truly amazing.

I was really scared for a while. I was scared that the lump wouldn’t be benign. Overall, I am so glad I had it removed and have the answer now. It’s definitely a weight off of my shoulders.

But, breast cancer awareness is still really important to me.

I still realize that there are people out there who aren’t as lucky. I know that there are friends and family members who are caring for a loved one, or who have lost a loved one to breast cancer.

I still want to do something about it. If anything, my breast cancer scare has made me feel even stronger about it.

So far, I’ve raised more than $600 through my blog for Making Strides Against Breast Cancer. I can keep raising money through the end of the month.

My blog bake bake was a huge success, and I’m hoping this raffle will be, too.

When I first contacted Lucy at O.N.E.Coconut Water, she was thrilled to participate, but said that she only had ONE KIDS coconut water to give away. At first, I was skeptical, and then she sent me a case.

These little juice boxes are perfectly portioned, and are so easy to fit in your bag. They are coconut water- based, and delicious. I especially love the apple flavor. I will definitely throw one in my gym bag once I start working out again. And, of course, if you have kids, they’re perfect for them, too! I just love juice boxes. I gave some to my father, and he loves them, too.

Still not convinced? Here are Ten Reasons To Drink Coconut Water.

Lucy has generously offered TEN CASES for the raffle. That’s 10 winners, guys! I’m excited, are you?

Since my last two raffles didn’t go so well, I’ve decided to change the rules up a bit.

Raffle tickets will be $1 each. $5 will buy you 6 tickets! Basically for every $5 you spend, you get an bonus ticket. So, $10 will buy you 12 tickets There is NO LIMIT to how many you can purchase. The more tickets you buy, the higher your chances of winning.

How To Purchase Tickets and Enter the Drawing:

  1. Visit my Making Strides Fundraiser Page, and donate. Remember: $1 gets you one ticket, $5 buys you 6, $10 = 12, $15= 18 $20= 24, and so on.
  2. Come back to this post and leave a comment and let me know how much you donated. (Please include the name you used to donate in your comment).

And, that’s it! That’s all you have to do to enter.
