Giveaway: Close to my heart

I have a giveaway for you today that is very close to my heart.

My brother-in-law, Greg, has always been like a brother to me. I started dating Matt when Greg was 12 and I have watched him grow up. He's now a sophomore in college and such a well-rounded and smart student studying Economics at Duke.

Last year Greg spent most of his summer in Guatemala teaching Guatemalans the skills needed to build businesses and create entrepreneurships. Here is a little more about the initiative, taken from their website:

We [a group of Duke students] traversed the country helping women entrepreneurs and consulting for various small businesses and organizations. One weaving cooperative, Lema, stood out above the rest in terms of the quality of its goods and its dream for expansion. This group of women, above all others, helped inspire us to continue development and consulting work when we returned to school.

How amazing is that? These students (including my brother in law) dedicate their free time to help the women of Guatemala live their dream of growing their business.

Today's giveaway includes not one, but TWO gifts from this special initiative.

The grand prize winner can choose a handbag/tote of your choice from Lema Initiative. Here are some of my favorites:







The second giveaway winner can choose a scarf or cosmetic bag.





So many of my readers have supported me in my quest to live my dream and grow my business - I ask you to please support this worthy cause by assisting women doing the same in much less fortunate circumstances.

Even if you don't win, my brother-in-law and his Duke classmates have given my readers:

These bags are perfect for the upcoming summer season; I encourage you to support this cause!

To enter the giveaway: Leave a comment with which product(s) you like and how you would use it. Both prizes will be picked at random with random.org.

This contest will close Wednesday night at 11:59 am Pacific time. I will draw a winner on Thursday.

Thanks for reading and entering!

  4. This is an amazing project. Greg's devotion to such a meaningful endeavour only shows how beautiful his soul must be. Thank you, greg. And thank you for telling us about this project!

    As for me, I love the beach handbag in Winter and nd the tote handbag in Azure blue.

    Actually, I really love these bags. They have a really organic feel to them, unlike bags with bright, brazen prints.

I am also attempting to start my own business as an English tutor since I'll be staying home with my baby. The scarf would be a beautiful reminder to stick with my goals and inspire progress for the goals of others.

  41. Can I say all of them? They're gorgeous! Whichever one I'd get I'd use as a diaper bag as that's literally all I carry around any more. A 3 year old and a 3 month old mean craziness, and the need for diapers and changes of clothes.

    ReplyDelete

    (btw, the link on this post was not working when i tried it out...)

    ReplyDelete
  47. I love the tote handbags, especially in the azure blue. I would use this bag this spring/summer/forever to carry my items for the day in, maybe taking a book and a sheet to the park and having a little reading session. I love the concept for this program, what a great read to start the week off with!

    ReplyDelete
  48. Love this giveaway! I would choose the tote to take my little boy to the beach this summer.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  52. I love this post. I live in Guatemala and have actually been to San Juan La Laguna and watched the women from Lema weave these beautiful products. I think it's great that you are using your reach to make a difference in a group of people who are really trying to improve their lives. The people of San Juan really have joined together as a community and believe in helping each other, which is not something that is common here. I hope that one day you can also visit them and this amazing country.

    ReplyDelete
  53. That is simply amazing! They have done some awesome work! Particularly the Sahara sand sling handbag and the scarves! Delightful!

    ReplyDelete
  54. love the bags -- can one ever have too many of those?? a cosmetic case would also be lovely as my makeup currently lives in a Ziploc bag (which frankly, works just fine :) )

    great cause!

    ReplyDelete
  55. Beautiful items! I love the tote handbag! It'd be perfect for the summer and picnics at a park. Or even an upcoming trip to Hawaii!

    I love NGO's like this. There is one in Cambodia which helps children stay off the street and go to school by painting. (Cambodia's Children Painting Project). We bought 4 paintings from them while we were there and the kids were so sweet.

    ReplyDelete
  56. These are BEAUTIFUL! I would choose the summer beach handbag, even though it was a tough choice! It looks like the perfect bag for going to the lake and storing my book, snacks, sunscreen and water.

    I would choose the orchid scarf. I think the color is gorgeous and perfect for spring and summer. I would wear a pair of jeans shorts, a white v-neck t-shirt and flip flops with it.

    Your brother-in-law and this group are amazing. To help so many people unconditionally is so admirable

    ReplyDelete
  57. I love the cosmetic bag. It would be the perfect place put those loose items that always sift to the bottom of my purse or to just carry by itself if I don't want to lug a purse or bag around. They are very cute!

  63. How could you pick just one? The colors are all so fabulous, but I have to say that I think I like the sling handbag the best. I'm a sucker for a bag that I can shove as much stuff as possible into, and this screams "stuff me!!"

    ReplyDelete
  64. I love that first handbag you posted, would be perfect for summer!

    ReplyDelete
  65. What a great cause! I love the beach handbag in summer. I'd use it to tote things around when we go on day trips.

  156. I love them all. My favorites are the sunshine yellow tote handbag and pathway cosmetic bag. The tote I would use for school or purse. I would use the cosmetic bag for my purse to keep thing organized or else when I travel on shorter trips.

  158. This is the best and most meaningful giveaway I have seen. What a fabulous way to reach design loving people and show such great quality products. It is awesome to find out about people doing so much for others.

    I love all the tote bag color combos and I will be purchasing a tote or moxie bag and a cosmetic to match. These would also make wonderful Mother's Day gifts.

  159. How wouldn't I use these bags?!?!? They're beautiful and the satisfaction of knowing that our purchasing dollars are supporting an initiative as important as this one seals the deal. Bryn, thanks so much for introducing us to the Lema Initiative!

  168. I just wanted to leave a note first to say, Bryn Alexandra, I love your blog. Second, I wanted to tell everyone that I recently purchased a scarf (in waterfall) from the website, and it is beautiful. Great quality and lovely color! It goes with everything and pulls any outfit together. Whoever wins one is very lucky!!

  170. Wow, these are gorgeous!

    I love the Beach Handbag in fall or spring and the Tote Handbag in sunshine yellow, azure blue or burnt umber.

    If I owned one, I would probably use it most days as my purse and on day trips out to the beach as such.
