Aid the Animals Giveaway!

Dear Vamps,

I do believe it's time for another giveaway! Instead of waiting for 600 fans on Facebook, I've decided to start the giveaway right now! Also, it will be a way to help the animals that I love so much.

7.07.2012 Update: Our winners have been announced! - 1ST - LEAH M., 2ND - SHAYLYNN R., 3RD HOLLY E.! ... Holly, you've won a 3-Sampler perfume pack! Please message me on Facebook or mail me at SarawenArt(at)gmail.com for your address and scent choices. 

Interested? Then please read on ...

A large part of why I'm doing this giveaway earlier than planned is to give more attention to an animal shelter in Afghanistan called Nowzad, a registered UK charity. Their mission is to help stray, abandoned, and abused animals, usually dogs, donkeys, and cats. They also introduce spay/neuter programs, as well as educate the local people about non-cruelty. Some of the animals even find loving homes in the UK or North America and are flown to their new families (some by the same soldiers who rescued them!).


Right now, they are in dire need of funding - they are about to be kicked off the land on which the shelter is built on. They need to relocate and fund a new shelter to be built in July. Let's give them a hand!

There are plenty of ways to enter, and the prizes are going to be fabulous!! The giveaway starts now, and ends Friday July 6, 2012, midnight EST.


PRIZES

1st Prize, ONE WINNER - Two 4.5ml perfumes of your choice, a 60ml jar of Cream Lotion in scent of your choice, vegan nail polish in "Diva" by A'dor Beauty, a Victorian inspired bookmark by Sweet Turquoise 

2nd Prize, ONE WINNER - a perfume sampler of 6 in the scents of your choice

3rd Prize, ONE WINNER - it's a surprise!!

Who knows, there might even be EXTRA goodies that I haven't mentioned yet. ;)

Good luck!! Please share and tell your friends and family about the giveaway and Nowzad!!

    9. My cats are a never-ending source of amusement. Today my big boy, Hercules (who's a 26 lb. scaredy-cat) heard some idiot neighbors shooting off illegal fireworks, and climbed up next to my husband on the couch and put his head on hubby's shoulder. I was sad that he was scared, but it made me smile that he sought out, and found, comfort and protection from dad. :o)

      Delete
    10. My cats had a little sunbath in the garden earlier today. That was adorable :)

      Delete
    11. Today was my birthday...and Maki's too! I adopted him two years ago, now. Happy birthday, Maki!! :)

    Anyway- my dogs slept in a row beside the gate, in perfect correlation to each other yesterday - one was at 180, another at 270 and then the other at 360 XD) since it's starting to get sunny again (it's the 'typhoon' season in Hong Kong)!

  8. I have the cutest little Yorkshire terrier/Shih Tzu crossbreed, and she does things that make me smile all the time. She looks just like an Ewok. Today when I went out with her, as summer has finally reached Sweden, she started rolling around like crazy because the ground was all warm.

    ReplyDelete
  9. My kitties make me smile most days, but I actually have a story today.
    This morning I woke up with a migraine, and as I was waking, I reached out and realized my Ollie was on the bed next to me, purring.
    So I cuddled up against him & petted him for a few more minutes before getting up.

    Just makes me feel better knowing that they know when I don't feel well, and try to help me. <3

  10. My cat is part Siamese, and very talkative. He made me smile this morning when he woke me up by curling up on my chest and meowing at me softly.

  12. I have a small army of nine cats and most of the time they make me smile(although Wilhelmina,a Bengal mix,usually wakes me in the morning with swats to my face!).I was feeding them this morning and smiled as my large,mysterious,aloof and usually silent Sammael waited patiently by his dish and let out a small plaintive meow.How adorable!

    1. :) hi Erika! Thank you for your entries. Hmm, let's see.
      Each daily answer about your pets counts as +2 entries, and your comment about the perfumes counts as +1. So I'm counting 7 entries unless you did a few of the other tasks, giving you 9 total. Hope that helps!

    2. ok, wait a sec - I also see that you were tweeting, so I'm not sure why it wasn't counted. Maybe you missed hitting the "Do it" button once or twice? Try refreshing the page too.

      If it's not counting your tasks, please tally them up at the end of the raffle and I will add in the entries! Thanks, Erika!

  36. Well, it's raining today and Toby and Sushi went out to go potty. When I called them to come back in, they were muddy from legs to toes. I had to smile because they looked so funny and wet. I call that muddin'. They both went out muddin' today.

  37. My favorite? I'M SUPPOSED TO PICK? OK, I've only ever smelled one of your perfumes, but I totally want to try one of the HP themed ones. Or the LotR ones you mentioned on facebook. :)

    ReplyDelete
  38. We don't have a pet right now. :( My mom is quite allergic. But we may be getting a lab soon, now that we have a huge yard!

    My favorite pet memory is the tadpoles I gathered when I was little. One day one of them disappeared and the other got bigger. My parents didn't believe me when I claimed that one tadpole ate the other. Just a few months ago (several years after I gave up on trying to get my own pet frog), one of my friends who is going to vet school told me that I WAS RIGHT. Tadpoles are cannibalistic!

    ReplyDelete
  39. OMG!!! We came from the park a few minutes ago with my Nora and she can't move! She played a lot with another doogie with a little ball that she found! AAaaaww.. she's like a little girl! <3 ~Gloria~

  45. I haven't tried any SaraWen perfumes, but I have a huuuge wishlist! At the top is The Baker's Boy!

    And as for cute pet stories, today my cat (named Musabi, nicknamed Moosa the Foosa) found it necessary to "hide" under all the rugs and jump at peoples feet. LOL.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Toby got a package in the mail yesterday. I won her some plush stuffed toys and when she saw that box, she started jumping all around and even tried to help me open it. That made me smile.

  47. Today, I had to stop one of my cats from eating some silk flowers. She doesn't eat real flowers (she smells those), only artificial flowers, silly girl.

    As for my favorite Sarawen scent, I am torn between Elf Princess and Death's Day Party.

  54. Nimue (my fluffy black kitty) is racing around the house like a maniac chasing a fluffball left over from a project I was working on. I think she likes me crafting because she gets the bits I'm not using.

  55. "Tell me which Sarawen fragrance is your favourite! If you don't have any, which one would you like to try?"

    This is a case of EVERYTHING! I've loved everything I've tried. I want to see how the Hunger Games ones are though, because I like the theme a lot. Of what I own, I think Hunter is my favorite.
