Hello, friends! Today is the four-month anniversary of the launch of Finding Plan A (yay!), which means it’s time for a giveaway! As always, one follower will be the lucky winner of a piece of jewelry from The Shine Project, which is one of my favorite organizations.

I got involved as an ambassador for The Shine Project almost a year ago.  You can read the whole story here, but essentially, Shine supports inner-city American students on track to be the first in their family to go to college by teaching them to make jewelry and offering them employment and mentorship.  Student employees at the Shine centers have the opportunity to work hard to earn money for their higher education, so the purchase of Shine products supports their academic goals.  A portion of the profits also goes toward a scholarship fund that benefits the Shine kids.  I absolutely love this organization– and I’m obsessed with the jewelry, too!  It’s easy-to-wear, affordable, trendy, and supports a really awesome cause.

The January winner will get this beautiful turquoise druzzy bracelet. It reminds me of the make-your-own-crystal kits I was obsessed with as a kid (anyone else?), and the color makes me think of warmer temperatures and tropical water (if only…).
