{Raffle Closed 6/30/09}

In an effort to rejuvenate interest in the fundraiser for my Big Bro, {Who is about to lose his apartment due to the loss of BOTH of his jobs within TWO weeks of each other} and to help me reach my goal of raising $1200 to help him NOT become homeless, {Current tally is at $75}, Miss April of April Showers Blog Designs has generously donated her services to my cause.

This is no small feat, considering how completely slammed she has been for the last few months. But that is what happens when you are as talented as she is, you become “in demand”, and boy is she ever! {Go here to see the amazing castle she made for Queenie Jeannie}

Here is the deal-io, for only THREE DOLLARS, you can get a brand new, unique and fully customizable blog layout plus entry into a raffle for a CUSTOM design. Where else could you get that AND be able to donate to a good cause? Come on, it’s only THREE DOLLARS

From April:

For the VERY first time, April Showers Blog Design is offering pre-made Blogger Templates, and you will be the first and ONLY group of people to get these.

For this fundraiser only, these two Custom Color Layouts will be available to anyone who donates at least $3 to the cause. These templates allow you to change up your blog colors easily and as often as you want, and you can even install them yourself!

Once we receive your donation, you will be e-mailed the code and instructions for the layout of your choice.

If you donate at least $5, you’ll get your choice of the above exclusive layouts – and a PERSONALIZED custom signature to sign each blog post!

Click the blinkies to get a better look at what you get!

Here are the rules:

  1. For each $3 donation received, you get the choice between the TWO color changing layouts. The colors of the background, header, etc. can easily be changed and customized using the “fonts and colors” tab in Blogger Layouts. Check out the cool “example” blinkie she made to see what is possible in these templates. You are only limited by the colors of your imagination!
  2. For each $5 donation received, you get a choice between the TWO color changing layouts AND you also get a custom signature to sign every blog post!

EVERYONE who donates at least $3 gets put into a raffle for a custom design by April Showers Blog Design!

The Custom Blog design comes with the following:
  • Background Image
  • Layout Editing
  • Custom Header – Can use any amount of family photos! Or an illustration from (addt’l charge for custom graphics)
  • 5 Sidebar Tiles
  • A $55 value!

You can donate/enter this raffle easily by clicking the “donate” button below. Then leave me a comment telling me which of the color changing layouts you prefer, along with your email address, and I will get your info over to April so she can give you the code.

I am trying to get this out to as many people as possible, so I would be extremely grateful if any of you would post/tweet/facebook about this raffle/fundraiser.

~*~*~ Please note: ~*~*~
Each of you who has already donated at least $3 is eligible for both the color changing layout AND entry into the raffle for the custom blog design. Just let me know which template you want {Please make sure I have your correct email address} and I will then get your info over to April so she can give you the code.

Raffle ends June 30, 2009
