A Holiday Giveaway!
Okay, everyone, this is the time of the year that we buy and buy and buy for everyone else. Or we try to budget as best we can and buy them (the kids, the spouse, the grandparents, etc.) smaller items, use coupons and freebies and go above and beyond to surprise everyone else in our worlds.
I'd like to offer you a chance to win something that is just for you.
Yes, YOU! (GASP!)
Okay, okay ... you can also use the GC to get that perfect gift for someone on your list, but I really hope you use it for yourself!
I was recent given an opportunity to pick something to review from NOVICA, one of the leading fair trade artisan websites. They work with National Geographic to give talented artisans around the world a place to express their artistic talents and provide access to the world market. They have thousands of top fair trade corporate gifts and home decor items on their website.
And while choosing something for myself (review to come later!) I fell in love with their products. The jewelry. Oh, the jewelry.
They also have loads of items to choose from in their Corporate Gifts collection. And pssst, guess what? They have a jewelry section there, as well. Go look!
They have a beautiful assortment of green items. Unique items, even a section of things for under $30! You can buy something for yourself AND a gift for someone else!
And on top of all these incredible items that help people across our great world, Novica also has a Microfinance program, where you can help to loan money to people -- loans as "small" as $25 -- to help them get themselves started as a business. You can apply for or contribute to a loan here.
So Novica has offered me a $50 gift card to give to one of my loyal readers. I'm so excited! Keep reading to find out how to enter:

Thanks for playing and good luck!
** I borrowed Novica's logo for this Giveaway. I was not compensated for hosting this giveaway, but will be posting an item to review from them. That upcoming review was not in payment for hosting this giveaway. It was my choice to split the available credit to a review and giveaway for my readers, at their offering.**
