My New Mission You Can Win Free Jewelry

I am on a mission, to raise at least 100 dollars to donate to the local food pantry. With people losing their jobs, and the holidays right around the corner, I think it would be generous to do so. Last year we gave food, but for Christmas we gave a lot of gifts we bought for the needy. This year, for Thanksgiving, in honor of my husband's favorite holiday, we are hoping people will donate five dollars to our cause. Now if you can not, please know that I understand completely. You can not donate more than five dollars, the Paypal button will not allow it. I will document, and keep all names, and email addresses. All who donate five dollars, will be entered into a drawing to win the Pink Zircon ring pictured on the left hand column of this blog. This ring is sterling silver, with rhodium plating so it does not tarnish, with a 5mm Trillion Pink Zircon, surrounded by CZ's, it is a size 6. You could easily cross someone off your Christmas list with this prize. The setting alone cost me 40 dollars, and that does not include the gemstone, and labor involved to set it. Also if you drop me a comment, or email me with your paypal ID, and a link to your blog, or website, all who donate will get a link on my Hall of Fame. If you love my idea, please feel free to share it with others. That is not a requirement. The only requirement is that you donate 5 dollars using the Paypal button, to the left, and you live in the US, Phillipines, Australia, Canada, or Great Britian, all others will be rendered null, and void. The program starts right now, and runs until November 1st at 8PM, Eastern time. I will show receipts of donation proof, at the time the money is given to the food pantry.

Thank you guys, for all your comments. Femmepower the button will only accept five dollars. I did that so people could not give more than that. If you are interested in donating you can contact me at melissaruede@yahoo.com

You may want a green gemstone because you are a May Baby, or you are looking for a unique engagement ring. It may shock you just how expensive it is to buy a quality emerald. It may even be worth more than your car. Here is how to find an affordable green Peridot gem.http://www.peridotlovers.com
