Favorite Things Raffle for the American Cancer Society

I’m super excited to announce my next raffle for the American Cancer Society! It includes some of my favorite things, donated by the following generous companies … I encourage you to like them on Facebook and/or follow them on Twitter!

To enter the raffle: Every $5 you donate to the American Cancer Society via my fundraising page by Sunday, February 26 will equal 1 entry. See end of post for how to earn extra entries.

Sparkly Soul Headbands – the winner will receive two headbands, one thin and one wide, in their choice of colors. I honestly love these headbands. I have tried quite a few no-slip headbands, and while I like all of them so far, Sparkly Soul is my favorite. I think it’s because they are made differently than other bands – they are elastic all the way around, but it’s all under the velvet lining and sparkly tinsel – so there are no edges to rub your scalp. I find them not only very comfortable but they honestly do not move. Facebook | Twitter

If you just can’t wait, or don’t plan to donate, you can use code MagMileRunner until February 29 at sparklysoul.com for 10% off your order, and 15% of sales will be donated to my ACS fundraising.

Clif Shot Bloks – the winner will receive one each of all eight flavors. I’ve tried a lot of fuel, and I really love these. I don’t really like gels/goo; I prefer solid stuff. I like that Clif products are organic – I hate that we work so hard to take care of our bodies, and some companies load up their sports drinks and other fuel with high-fructose corn syrup and food dyes. Plus these taste pretty good. Facebook | Twitter

Officially: CLIF SHOT® is a great-tasting sports nutrition line for performance athletes that delivers essential energy and hydration, plus fast muscle recovery using organic and nutritious ingredients. CLIF SHOT BLOKS Energy Chews provide an optimum balance of carbohydrates and electrolytes. They’re easy to chew and to use with their convenient, performance-friendly packaging. CLIF SHOT BLOKS are available in eight delicious flavors: Black Cherry, Citrus, Cran-Razz®, Margarita, Mountain Berry, Orange, Strawberry and Tropical Punch. The SRP for CLIF SHOT BLOKS is $1.99 per packet.

Bondi Bands – the winner will receive two Bondi Bonds (styles to be determined by BB, but I’ve requested something cute and/or shamrocked). I received my first Bondi Bands from the DailyMile Secret Santa last year. And I love them! I ended up ordering five more (I had a coupon code) and now I wear them all the time. When the weather’s chilly but not cold (around 40), they are good to cover your ears without providing a lot of warmth (picture, bottom). When it’s colder, I wear them under my fleece hats/headbands to avoid getting those all sweaty and gross (picture, top). Facebook | Twitter

Officially: Our products are unisex, 100% American Made and perfect to be worn on their own or under other hats, helmets and visors. Using stretchy, breathable material, allows Bondi Bands to fit virtually every head size and shape. Our fashion lycra fabric is fun and great for every day. In warm weather, our “No Slip, No Drip” moisture wicking headbands are great to wick away sweat, keep hair back and ear buds in ears and in colder weather they are also great to keep your ears warm. Bondi Band donates 10% of pretax profits to Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. We also offer customized products.

Body Glide – the winner will receive “a couple units.” (I assume this means a couple sticks of Body Glide, and they may be the girly one, since they asked if my readers were mostly mean or women. I’ll find out whenever what they are sending arrives, but I didn’t want to delay this raffle.) I think we all know how necessary Body Glide is. I’ve actually been enjoying winter and not having to worry about thigh chaffing, but shorts-weather will be back before we know it, and my consumption of Body Glide will shoot way up again. Facebook | Twitter

Honey Stinger Waffles – the winner will receive some. I’m not sure how much though. When I asked if they would donate, they said “we are in” and asked for my address. So we’ll see what they send. However… I LOVE THESE. They are delicious. I kind of want to eat them everyday just as a snack. Seriously. Delicious. If you don’t win this raffle, I highly recommend you try some and then report back to me how hard it is not to eat them all right away. I also like that Honey Stinger products are natural. I’ve also tried their chews and they are delicious as well. Facebook | Twitter

Race T-shirt Quilt – my crafty friend Allie has offered to make a shirt quilt for the winner. You will just need to ship your shirts to her (I can cover the cost of shipping), she will turn your shirts into a quilt (see example at right), and I will cover the cost to ship back to you. (Or if you are local to me, I can handle transporting the shirts/quilt.) You can use your old race shirts, or really any t-shirts. It’s your quilt! If you don’t have enough shirts, you can always “save” this for later, or donate it back and I can give it to another donor. Allie’s Etsy Shop | Facebook

So, to summarize, in exchange for a minimum $5 donation by February 26 toward the fight against cancer, you could win all of the following:

  • 2 Sparkly Soul headbands
  • 8 packs of Clif Shot Bloks
  • 2 Bondi Bands
  • Body Glide
  • Honey Stinger Waffles
  • Quilt made of your shirts, from races or otherwise

How can you get additional entries?

  • Donate more than $5. Every $5 = 1 entry, so $10 = 2 entries, $15 = 3 entries, etc.
  • If you donated to any of my past raffles, you automatically get one entry.
  • Help me promote this raffle. Post it to your blog, Facebook, Twitter, DailyMile, Pinterest, etc. Just leave a comment below with links to anywhere you promote (you can put all the links in one comment). I’ll give you an extra entry for each site your promote this on.
