Mother's Day Fund Raising & Draw

First of all, many thanks to Katie from Scentzilla who initiated this Mother's Day fund raising project of Benevolent Blogging , which I decided to join via SmellyBlog. On Mother's Day, for each comment made on the participating blogs, the blogger will be donating a set amount of money to a charity of their choice.

There are quite a few perfume related bloggers participating in this fabulous project, including my own SmellyBlog, and if you comment on those blogs, you will be supporting those causes with good thoughts as well as money, and also have a chance to win cool prizes!

Being a woman and an entrepreneur, I chose to give to FINCA International, an organization that provides loans to low-income micro entrepreneurs, focusing especially on women.
Thus, for each person that will post a comment on SmellyBlog on Mother’s Day (May 14th), I will donate $1 to FINCA International. I truly believe that small businesses make a huge contribution to our communities both culturally and economically, and also this is a great opportunity for women to lead an independent life.

What else is there in it for you?
You will enter a draw and can win one of the two fragrant prizes!
A 1/8oz roll-on OR a 1oz EDP spray bottle of Altruism, my wonderful fund raising perfume in many a galas and silent auctions for worthy causes.

Likewise, Katie - you are a cool lady and a wonderful mother too! I am really glad you initiated this benevolent blogging campaign!

Urban Chick, be sure to find a comment of mine on your blog as well. However, the charitable comments are only for the ones made on Mother's Day, if I am not mistaken... Still need to find a good idea for a post for that day that will be interesting to read and comment on!

Ayala - UC is out of town on the 14th, which is why I suspect she popped in here real quick on the 11th to say hullo to a fellow benevolent blogger! For most of us, yeah, it pretty much only makes sense to do a Mother's Day event on the US Mother's Day, but since she's off and about on holiday with no internet I think she just thought it best to say hello early rather than miss it altogether? I don't want to put words in her mouth of course, but this is my guess since she's not available right now :)

And thank you!

This is such a great idea - I don't have my own blog but I will leave comments all over the place!

Happy Mother's Day!

Katie, I will count Urban Chick's comment for the fund raising. Glad I wasn't that far off the "plan". Still working on the post for tomorrow! It gotta be special...

Flora, thank you so much for visiting and for commenting on all the blogs tomorrow! I sure will be doing the same.
