Giveaway: Lilly Pulitzer Picture Frame + Album!

Hi all!

Thank you for visiting my blog. I originally was inspired to start this blog after seeing Lilly Pulitzer's (the clothing brands) collaboration with many non-profits such as the Cinderella Project and WWF. So I thought, how could I embody the spirit of my favorite clothing brand? That's when I came up with the idea that I'll focus on a non-profit close to my heart for every two weeks. I will be giving away Lilly dresses and stationary items for bloggers, who participate by either visiting the weekly non-profit's website, sharing a statistic or fact they learned, donating, or just being awesome/altruistic!

So let's shop and make a difference together, preppy ladies!!
Please feel free to suggest a non-profit that you have always supported!

This week, I want to share with you a non-profit that's very close to my heart. First of all, since I was a victim of rape, I especially endorse this non-profit. As a child, I was raped by a close neighbor; he was never caught even though he had been a repeat sex offender. But I may also be biased, considering this non-profit was started by my lovely niece. She started Empower Our Youth, which funds self-defense classes for inner-city kids (who are statistically speaker at a high risk of being victims of sexual violence) and raises awareness of the issue of sexual violence against women and children. By showing girls how to protect themselves, they can better fend off an attack. Awesome huh?

So my first giveaway will be a Lilly Pulitzer picture frame and photo album. These items are tres cute!!

Here's all the possible ways you can enter. Remember to comment with how many entries you completed. You can have up to 5 entries:

1)Become a follower of this blog and a facebook follower of "Empower Our Youth".

Link to facebook page of Empower Our Youth:!/pages/Empower-Our-Youth/348084741431?ref=ts

2)Become a follower of “@Empower Our Youth” on twitter and tweet something like “Check out this charity “”.

3)Follow my instructions in my second blog on how to support Empower Our Youth by voting for them in the @15 community impact challenge. You just have to vote once for an entry.

4)Email me at and I can send you a word document that includes instructions on how to vote. Then forward this email to your friends (minimum 25 people).

5) Blog about this blog, or about this non-profit, or both if you would like to!

6) Comment with a good charity that I should focus on 2 weeks from now. It can focus on any issue!! Plus, tell me what Lilly item you want to see gived away 2 weeks from now too. I'll try to make it happen.

Ends: April 15th, 2010

Love, Jane

I'd love to see the American Cancer Society recognized. Cancer in many forms has touched the lives of unfortunately quite a few people in my lives. Research and awareness would at least bring us a step closer to prevention and healthy or at least manageable living.

Hi ladies,

Since there are only 5 entries so far, I'm pushing the deadline to April 15 so others can participate as well. I think some are involved in the other giveaway, so they haven't been noticing this one. Sorry for the sudden change!
