In my 29 years... Giveaway Day 5 {the best day yet}

In my 29 years I have learned this to be true. 
It is always better to give than receive.
It's just the truth.

So today I am giving you a present.
Something that is near and dear to my heart.
peliCAN - Threadless, Best T-shirts Ever

One of you will win this 
RAD PeliCAN t-shirt in today's giveaway.
{all proceeds from the sale of this shirt go to the Gulf Restoration Network}

Yes dear friends. 
My sweet Gulf is still in need of help.
So because I am donating to a cause I really believe in
{because it's home for my family}
AND one of you will get to rock this amazing t shirt around
 your town and share awareness that way.
{cause you know I am rocking it around mine}

{yep thats me}

It's a win/win.

BUT, wait
Maybe for my birthday the blogging world could give me a present too?

How about for my birthday we all donate 
a dollar, just one to Summer's Daddy

You are quite possibly the sweetest, most sincere, genuine, and giving person I have ever had the pleasure of knowing. Always thinking about everyone else. And it warms my heart. You make me smile each and every day, do you know that?

I got your beautiful card and rad gifts in the mail yesterday. I'm going to post a blog about them tomorrow, but I wanted to let you know just how much I cherish you and how grateful I am for your generosity. Always thinking about us and that means the world to me. I couldn't ask for a better friend. You're fabulous. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. You have made my last couple of weeks a little easier. Hugs!

I volunteer at PAWS and it makes my heart happy when the dogs go home with a good family. They are happy to have a family to love and I know they wont be lonely in a shelter.

Happy Birthday! I hope you have an amazing weekend!
