Flaunt Your Cause Winner!

Happy Friday Eve from New Orleans!

It's a double-post kind of day, because Emily drew the winner of the Flaunt Your Cause link-up!  I'm sorry I don't have a more elaborate reveal, but I hope you'll forgive me since I'm writing while I'm on vacation!  I am so, so excited that 30 bloggers participated in the link-up!  Being that it was a one-time link-up and that each post took a lot of consideration and heartfelt thought, I think we had a fantastic turn-out!  THANK YOU SO MUCH to all of you who linked up with Emily and I, wrote such wonderful e-mails to me, left supportive comments to each other, and took the time to learn about all of the causes listed!

In this link-up, I read more about how the following causes/organizations affected you ladies:
  • Being a CASA {Court Appointed Special Advocate}
  • Down Syndrome advocacy in Australia
  • A missionary making her way to Africa
  • To Write Love on Her Arms
  • American Foundation for Suicide Prevention
  • Erin's Clothing Drive & "Shop My Closet" night
  • Wounded Warriors
  • Abortion prevention
  • Girl Scouts
  • Miles for Hope Brain Cancer walk
  • Love of Labs
  • 5 to Survive
  • Clare's work volunteering in Dominica
  • Rape is Never Justified
  • Bye Bye Beehive Mission
  • Gabriel's Angels
  • Pancreatic Cancer Action Network
  • Girls on the Run
  • Clean Water for the World
  • Shine
  • World Wildlife Fund
  • Missionary work for imprisoned children in Africa
  • Cystic Fibrosis Foundation
  • Locks of Love
  • Blessings in a Backpack
  • Spaying & Neutering Pets

Whew!  That's a lot!  THANK YOU for sharing!

I'm happy to announce that the winner of the $50 donation was Allie @ A Thousand Wonders who highlighted To Write Love On Her Arms!  Congratulations, Allie!

$50 will be donated to TWLOHA 
on behalf of all the bloggers who participated in 

I can't thank each of you enough for supporting a link-up like this one!  And a huge thank you to Emily who was the brain behind the whole concept and let me team up with her.  What a brilliant idea!  I love you and admire you so much!
