Candyland’s Awesome Contest

Jul 19, 2010 Uncategorized 10 comments

If you haven’t heard about Candace’s contest over at The Misadventures In Candyland, you should go there now. This isn’t just any old contest. This is Operation I Heart Joy Like BR8o.

What does that mean you ask? Well click here for her explanation. This contest is to help raise money for a charity called Joy 2 the World which generates micro-credit loans to women in Ghana to help them become independent.

I.E. They loan her money to buy a sewing machine and then they can start their own business.

It seems like such a small thing, but this can really make a big difference in their lives. Even if you can’t give money, please help spread the word. This is an awesome cause that is about more than giving someone a meal or even feeding them for a month. This is about changing their lives.

Oh, and did I mention that there are some awesome prizes? So many generous people donating to the cause!
