New Year Give-it-away

*This giveaway was originally intended to be a Christmas give-it-away, but turned into a New Year's give-it-away :-).*


I don't know about you, but during the Christmas season, I'm thinking mostly about myself and the presents I will get. Selfish as it is, it's true. I know many other girls can relate to that. I also know that many people spend their Christmas and New Year alone, or without any gifts at all, or maybe some people just need a little brightening and a little glimmer of hope in their day. The thought of those people inspired me to host a Girlz of God...

New Year Give-it-away!

This giveaway is a little bit like other giveaways. The only catch is, you are entering to win a prize that you will give away to someone who could use a smile and a glimmer of hope. Although I can't monitor whether you keep the prize or give it away, the point of this giveaway is to win it to give it, you know? I highly encourage you to give the prize away to someone (or buy something with the prize for someone else - more about that later). Here are a couple of ideas for giving (these are all optional, of course)...

(1) Give it to someone who is TOTALLY not expecting it. (maybe the girl you can't stand, the old man down the street that sits in his rocking chair on the front porch, that lady that is about to have a baby at your church, etc.)
(2) Do it anonymously. It will feel great.
(3) Attach a card to the gift that tells about Christ and His love. You could tell them you are praying for them, include a fun little paper game like a crossword puzzle or sudoku, and include Bible verses.

If you win one of the prizes below, we would love to hear what you did with it and what the response of the person was. Please, for safety reasons, don't use any names. Talk about how giving it away made you feel, if you learned something in the process, and what you think GOD thinks about giving to those who need hope.

Now, on to the prizes...

$10 credit to Beau-Nanza donated by Sarah.

Beau-Nanza sells a variety of cute bows and adorable key fobs.

Is that not adorable? I don't have keys, and I want one! LOL! I couldn't find a pic on the facebook page, but I have a New Orleans Saints bow that's really cute :-). Something from Beau-Nanza would be a great, sweet little gift to give away.

This set of friendship bracelets donated by Kara L. You could keep one and give it to a friend! Aren't they pretty?

And, last but not least, any one item of your choice from Emma Margaret Designs!

Emma Margaret sells a variety of cute little items. This would make a perfect gift for someone in need of a smile! Here are a couple of the items she has at her shop.

Flower Head Band.

Pretty Little Clipboard

Colorful Flower Bracelet

...and much more! :-)

I think my favorite Bible verse is in Romans 8:? Not quite sure where but it is about how you can't be seperated from the love of God I think.
