Beautiful Giveaway

About a year ago, as I was scanning through blogs, I came across this beautiful lady.


Her name is Melissa, and she had lots of good stuff to say. But the words on her blog that kept jumping out at me were:

ZIMBABWE. ORPHANS. ZIMBABWE.

Some may say that it was a coincidence, but I would say this was a God thing.

Whenever I (rarely) meet a person who shares my love for Zimbabwe, there seems to be an instant bond. And Melissa was no different.

Over the last year I have seen more and more of her beautiful heart, not only for Zimbabwe, but for orphans and special needs children all over the world.

From this passion Melissa has founded an organization called Beautiful Feet Global Outreach.
How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news...Romans 10:14,15

In celebration of BFGO becoming and official Tax-Exempt Non-Profit Organization, I am going to give you stuff!

In exchange I just ask that you check out the awesome things that are happening with BFGO, and open your heart up to falling in love with this ministry as I have.

For this giveaway there will be two winners, each will recieve one of these lovely necklaces, handmade by Melissa. (You can read the story behing these jasper rocks or buy one of these lovely necklaces here. All proceeds go to Beautiful Feet Global Outreach.) 

Tear shaped brown colored jasper neclace.
A rectangular shaped greenish blue Jasper rock with beautiful brown markings. I want one.

How to enter:
1. Check out the BFGO website and let me know you did. I'll take your word for it. I'm trustworthy like that. (This is mandatory to be qualified for the other entries.)

2. Follow or subscribe to the BFGO blog 

3. Like the Facebook page.

4. Share this on your blog, facebook, twitter, and/or other social forums. Each share will count as one entry.

Please be sure to leave a seperate comment for each entry so I don't miss any! The winner will be drawn on Monday, August 8th. The first winner drawn will have the choice of  which necklace they would like. Oh, and last but not least, make sure that somewhere in your comment there is a link to your blog or email so I can contact you if you win!
God Bless,
