Epilepsy Awareness + Giveaway March 26, 2011Posted by Jaidis in Epilepsy Awareness, Giveaways.
Tags: Awareness, Epilepsy
Epilepsy Awareness is important to me. Growing up, I never gave it much thought. It didn’t affect me directly, and it’s difficult to support something you have no experience with or know about. I was for spreading awareness for many causes, but only after I was personally diagnosed with Epilepsy, could I spread awareness with vigor for something I knew about personally.
I want to take a short break from my normal book blogging posts to try to spread Epilepsy Awareness. Well, I’m not taking a break at all. I am adamant about spreading knowledge about Epilepsy, and until March 31st, I will be adding posts about it to my normal book posts with the hope of adding to the awareness and allowing my readers to better understand Epilepsy.
And because I love giving away stuff, I am going to start by posting a giveaway! The giveaway will end at 11:59 pm EST on March 31st. You do not have to be a follower to enter, although it is greatly appreciated. Simply leave a comment on this post with your email address so that I can contact you if you win. As a bonus, you can earn an extra entry by visiting author Tonia Brown’s blog, The Back Seat Writer, and leave a comment on the ‘Writing and Epilepsy’ guest post I wrote! This giveaway is open to US and Canada only as I will be paying the shipping costs.
First up is this lovely Sterling Silver Out of the Shadows Official Logo Necklace! I ordered it from The Epilepsy Foundation. It is gender neutral as well for the few male readers I have. I have 1 of these to giveaway!
Not only is this design super awesome, but it is a great conversation piece. If someone asks what it means or where you got it, you can tell them it represents Epilepsy Awareness! I personally wear one and am asked all the time about it!
Next up is this super cool handmade necklace pendant! I have 1 of these to giveaway to a second winner!
This pendant was made by yours truly. It is a different version of the Out of the Shadows logo. I did not design the actual design, but I made the pendant. The design is like the one found on Evanescence singer Amy Lee’s page…who happens to be the American Chair of the International “Out of the Shadows” campaign.
I encourage everyone to pick a cause you support and help spread awareness today! Together, we can make a difference!
