1000/1000 goal and the Leah Clutch Giveaway!

Okay, readers. It's time for the second ever Mother Load giveaway!  My new goal is to get to 1000 Facebook fans and to raise $1000 for Race for the Cure!  I have other, smaller goals in mind, but these two are the most important to me.  The deadline for this giveaway is May 8, 2010, the day I run the race.  That's only 5 weeks!  Can we do it? I think we can!

The item you can win this time is the Leah Clutch from Unframed Art Bags, a lovely, hand painted bag valued at $120!  (Gift givers...I like the Champagne and Roses clutch...just saying.)  Whether or not we reach the goals (but really, let's reach them, ok?), one Mother Load reader will win the clutch on May 8. You can keep it for yourself or give it as a gift to someone special in your life.

Because I have multiple goals related to this giveaway, there will be multiple ways for you to be entered into the drawing! Each entry ups your chances of winning.

1. Be a facebook fan yourself = 1 entry.  It doesn't matter how long you've been a fan.  Your fandom automatically gets you into the running for the clutch.

2. Invite new facebook fans = 1 entry for every new fan YOU invited.  If you brought fans to the fan page during the last giveaway, they STILL COUNT for this giveaway.  New fans count too!  Just make sure to let me know when your friends add themselves to the page, so you get credit.  The best way to get fans to the page is the invite EVERYONE on your friends list to become a fan of The Mother Load.  Susan Keller, the winner of the last Mother Load giveaway did it, and she's now the proud owner of a Perfect Brownie Pan!

3. Become a follower on The Mother Load blog = 1 entry. (Again, if you're already follower, you will automatically earn that entry.)

4. Become a follower on Sarah...Phenomenally = 1 entry. (Easy peasy.  Why not, right?)

5. Follow me on Twitter = 1 entry.

6. Make a donation to my Race for the Cure run = 10 entries.  This is what my Couch to 5K project is all about.  I don't want to just run the race. I want to show up with a fat check for the Susan G. Komen Foundation.  Click the donate button on the right and help me meet my $1000 goal.  Make sure to add a note with your name and that your donation is for Race for the Cure.  (Anonymous donations are very welcome! I just need your name if you want the entries.)

7. Make a donation to the M.D. Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, TX = 10 entries.  Susan, one of the makers of Unframed Art Bags, is a brain cancer survivor and M.D. Anderson patient.  You can follow the link right to the donation page or click my donate button and specify an amount you'd like to go to this charity.

8. Sign up to run Race for the Cure in your area = 10 entries.  Whether you're not a runner at all or you're a seasoned vet, you can do it!


Since my original plan was to run a mile if I made my 1000 fan goal, and I've long since done that with my Couch to 5K program, I need to come up with something crazy I'll do if we make the goal.  Want me to try again for the blue hair?  Want to see me eat an entire bowl of canteloup (Blugh, blugh, blugh).  Tell me what you'd like to see happen. :)

Okay, I'm excited and motivated.  We have 541 fans to find in just over 5 weeks.  Let's do it!

I saw that but didn't get what was up. I am slow.
