Many of you do not know that my father beat colon cancer this past fall, just when my blog was getting started. Many posts were written from hospital rooms during his recovery.
I have always participated in Relay for Life, which benefits the American Cancer Society, but this year it became more personal than ever. As a college student, it's really hard to fundraise around campus and these days, with the current state of the economy, it is a rough economic climate for these charities.
I have been toying around with this for a really long time, but some of my fellow bloggers finally pushed me to do this and I'm glad they did.
Cosmetics for a Cure is a raffle, with 100% of the money donated going to the American Cancer Society via Relay for Life! Each entry costs just $1 and you have a chance to win the VERY Limited Edition Peter Som Collection, hard to find nail polishes, expensive polishes, gift certificates, and more!
Money will be collected via the Relay for Life website and is an entirely secure. Due to ACS restrictions, there is a minimum $5 donations, which is five entries in the raffle.
For every $100 raised (which equals, at most, 20 people's participation), I will add a new prize! And believe me, they're awesome.
Here's the list of the money milestones and the corresponding prizes:
$1500 - Cult Nails Seduction
$1650 - OPI Glam Slam duo: Pros & Bronze/Love is a Racket
$1700 - Lynnderella Funny Money
$1750 - Cult Nails Scandalous
If we go over $700, I will add more mystery prizes! Every time we pass a milestone, I will announce it on the Facebook and Twitter pages. And who knows? If we receive donations, I might add in some surprises at $250, $350, etc.
HOW TO ENTER:
Please visit my DONATION PAGE to donate however much you'd like. $5 for 5 entries is the minimum, but certainly not a maximum. Beyond $5, it is the same $1 an entry. (Ex: 15 entries are $15, 100 entries are $100, etc.)
Please be sure to check off the box for that says "Yes, publicly display my donation amount with my name" so that I can correctly record your name and entries in an Excel sheet. When the raffle ends, I will use my Excel sheet and Random.org to select the winners.
The raffle starts today and ends on April 14th at 6:00 am. AND it is open internationally!
If you have any questions, please feel free to comment here or on Facebook and I will do my best to answer them.
