If you've explored the products on my website in depth, you may have come across my special edition red jewelry. I started selling this line of products in honor of my dad a few years ago, (who was battling Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma) out of the red patterned envelopes that he began receiving frequently from his insurance company. $5 of every red bead jewelry purchase goes directly to CaringBridge.org and $5 of every red pendant purchase goes to the American Cancer Society.
Well, my dad has been cancer free for over 3 years, and I am sad to say that it has returned. While he has been able to achieve remission after two rounds of chemo this time, his journey is just beginning, as he will be undergoing a stem cell transplant beginning as soon as next week.
Throughout his journey he and my mom have come across many kind and generous friends, family, and even strangers. One such angel has generously purchased a new Macbook Air, which is going to be raffled off for $10 per ticket, to help raise money for their medical expenses.
But that's not all!!! For every one of my blog readers who purchase one or more raffle tickets, I will send you one FREE large weave bookmark! (1 per person)
Here's how to enter:
1) Purchase a raffle ticket (or a bunch!)
Click on this link for the details to enter the raffle. You'll be asked to send an email, and will receive a Paypal invoice and then your ticket number(s) once your payment is completed.
2) Let me know you've purchased a ticket
by forwarding the email proof of your ticket purchase to Gretchen (at) JunkMailGems (dot) com. Be sure to include your shipping address so I can mail you your bookmark!

Is this a plug? Yes. Shameless? Totally! If it weren't for my dad, I wouldn't even exist, and neither would Junk Mail Gems! ;-) THANK YOU for your support!!
