Help a Sister Out! [giveaway!!]

At the end of April, my sister, Lauren, and a couple of her friends, Abby and Christy, will be participating in the Face of America bike ride. A 110 mile bike ride from Washington D.C. to Gettysburg, PA. "The annual ride honors and assists our military — injured, veterans and active duty—and the American Spirit. This inspiring ride, put on in cooperation with the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, is an opportunity to welcome disabled and able-bodied servicemen and women as teammates and show them how much we appreciate their efforts and sacrifices."



This giveaway is to support my big sister as she bikes 110 miles along side wounded veterans.

Thank you thank you soooo much for all of the support; to the Etsy Shops for donating, my sister for setting this all up, to all those that donate to such a great cause, and of course to those that serve our country and give back everyday!

Abby Johnson said...

I second that. We're inspired and so thankful to be able to participate in this race. I can't thank Robin and all of the participating Etsy shops enough for helping us reach our fundraising goal. The funds we raise go towards the registration fees for the wounded warriors, who ride free. What a great cause for fundraising! THANK YOU.
