Doing Good in Juju's Name Giveaway #1

well i'm really quite excited to be kicking off this new year doing meaningful things to honor my son, and hopefully bringing a smile to the face of another grieving mother. this is the start of what i hope to be monthly giveaways for this purpose. this month's giveaway is brought to you by my dear friend, Jessica, at Trev Trev Designs.

here's the backstory of how this giveaway came about:
a few weeks ago in the mail there was a small package. in that package was one of the most thoughtful presents i have received - this butterfly bracelet...

my friends tasha and jessica, wanting to give me a way to stay connected to Julius, thought of the concept for this bracelet, and jessica made it herself. not only did it come at just the right time {it came on the day that i had a breakdown because i received parenting magazine in the mail}, but it's also very meaningful to me since butterflies now hold a special place in my heart {thanks to rachel at Triplet Butterfly Wings}. she even customized the bracelet for Julius since the beads are the color of his birthstone - emerald. i wear it almost every day.

so when i first started thinking about doing a giveaway, i immediately thought about this bracelet and jessica. i have several pieces of jewelry that i wear that make me feel close to Juju and bring me comfort. and i wanted to give someone else that same feeling. especially since i know that butterflies have a special meaning to many BLMs. so i contacted jessica and asked her about her feelings on being included in one of my giveaways, and she graciously accepted. i truly am blessed with such great friends.

the giveaway:
this giveaway {for BLMs only, sorry} is for a customized butterfly bracelet, like the one i received. the winner will get to choose the bead color {check out the birthstone chart below for all of the cool options}, and Jessica will work directly with you to get the sizing of the bracelet correct.

how to enter:
all you have to do to enter is post the name(s) of your little one(s), and the dates that they were with you. if you have multiple angels, it's ok, add them all in the same comment. i hope each month to ask a different question about the little ones so that by the end of the year, i can learn all about your angels - Juju's friends. i will end the giveaway on friday jan 7th, and will post the winner's name that weekend. good luck!

**disclaimer: since this is my 1st ever giveaway, there may be pieces of info i accidentally forgot to mention. if you have any questions at all, no worries, send me an email and i will try to clear it up. i’m still learning.**

I found your blog via Creme de la creme... I just wanted to give you my deepest condolences. <3 Your positivity is absolutely inspirational! I lost my daughter eight months ago; she was stillborn full term.

You are amazing! To take some so tragic and turn it into something that may help others. And I love that you want to get to know more about Julius' new friends. I wish our boys didn't have to know each other this way and I wish we didn't have to know each other this way.
