Summer Earrings Giveaway

In Tori Spelling’s book Stori Telling she recounted how being nice paid off. She had a bit part in a movie & had to go to a photo shoot with the other, more famous actresses. She was the last one to be shot & the photographer was tired. He asked her what her demands were. The other actresses had been complaining all day. She just said something like she was happy to be there. They ended up putting her on the cover of the magazine when she just was supposed to have a smaller photograph on the inside. I really don’t believe that nice guys finish last.

Every week I run a contest where a random person gets pretty jewelry, kind of as a reward for all the nice things that they do that never get recognized. The winner can keep the jewelry or give it away to someone else. All you have to do to enter the contest is read the rules & then leave a comment about who you would give this to & why.

The prize this week are painted glass earrings set in sterling silver. I usually try to stick to genuine gemstones, but these just reminded me so much of summer & the beach I couldn’t resist.

The Rules:

Please don’t sell the jewelry, it’s to make whoever receives it feel special. Winner will be chosen by a random number
generator at 6pm on Friday Mountain Time.

Contestants should be over 18 & live in the lower 48 states because I’ll be paying shipping. I won’t sell or abuse your
mailing address.

If you’ve already won a Random Act of Bling, you can win again, but please give the jewelry away at random.

Please leave a valid e-mail address, this is how I will contact you if you win. The subject line of the email will say something like
“Random Acts of Bling: You Won” I’ll also announce the winner in a blog post. If I can’t reach you then I might
have to relist your prize.

If you want to link or stumble this post it would be appreciated but is not required.

Comment/trackback/link should be about a random act of kindness or who you would give this jewelry to & why.

Green Amethyst Earrings Contest

Update:  This contest is now closed but a new one starts on Monday!

Brian Williams from the Nightly News asked viewers to send in good news. I guess he’s gotten a lot of emails lately asking for a break from the really dreary news. It’s not about denying our country’s many problems, it’s more about giving people hope. One viewer requested that the newscast begin & end with good news. In response they will start airing a few segments about acts of kindness or “good people who are doing good things.”

I try to do the same thing every week by randomly giving away a piece of jewelry to make someone feel special. It’s a small thing that will hopefully make someone smile. The winner can keep it, or give it to someone else.The contest is easy to enter, just read the rules first. Make sure that your comment is about who you would give the jewelry to & why or a random act of kindness.

The prize this week are green amethyst (also known as prasiolite) earrings. These are set in sterling silver in a vintage style design.

The Rules:

Please don’t sell the jewelry, it’s to make whoever receives it feel special. Winner will be chosen by a random number generator at 6pm on Friday Mountain Time.

Amethyst Bracelet Contest

Contest is closed but a new one starts on Monday!

Jerry Lewis at the Oscars last night said while he was receiving a Humanitarian Award:

For most of my life, I’ve thought that doing good for someone didn’t mean you would receive commendation for that act of kindness – at least until now

I sat there thinking, but you’re Jerry Lewis, everyone knows how you host all those telethons. It really drove home to me the fact that most of us wonder if we are really doing any good or if we really even matter in the bigger scheme of things. This is why I give away jewelry at random every week, because I believe in people & what they can do. The winner can either keep the jewelry or pass it on to someone else. To enter the contest leave a comment with who you would give this to & why or a random act of kindness.

The prize this week is a 70 carat amethyst cabochon bracelet set in sterling silver. It’s a little over 7″.

The Rules:

Please don’t sell the jewelry, it’s to make whoever receives it feel special. Winner will be chosen by a random number
generator at 6pm on Friday Mountain Time.

Contestants should be over 18 & live in the lower 48 states because I’ll be paying shipping. I won’t sell or abuse your
