Are you entered into the Raffle yet? and Muk_Luks


Did you know that most online companies did not want much to do with me, because I was..

A; Not a licenced Charitable cause, which means, if they don't get something back in return, they will not donate...

B; I was not PR asking to review their product. (again something for something)

What in the world just happened to good old charity...

Well That is why I have asked my readers and my followers to donate $1 or more so that us bloggers, twitters, and facebookers could give these deserving families a wonderful day of happiness and hope.

1st sponsor.......MUK_LUKS


I have never heard of these boots before until I met Amanda from MukLuks on Twitter, they were holding a contest, and I simply asked if she would be willing to donate to this cause, and she jumped at the chance.





Who we are...MUK LUKS® brand represents a lifestyle.
Shoes, slippers, accessories .... all fun! MUK LUKS® offers consumers fashionable, comfortable, affordable footwear that fits into their everyday lives.

How we started...MUK LUKS® is truly an icon in the footwear industry.

Over the years, MUK LUKS® has remained on trend, and now boasts the strongest, most comprehensive line ever. Bold patterns, bright colors, and total comfort define today's MUK LUKS®--- a contemporary cousin of the original.

Muk_Luks has generously donated 3 pairs to the Gifts of Hope Program, and surprizenly donated one to me too! (I can't wait to get them)

Go Check out their store, they are sold also at Target, shoemall.com, OverStock.com, Kohls, Sam's Club, and more...

This is so sweet and thoughtful of you. We were one of these families up until a few months ago. We're still not where we need to be financially but things are better than what they were. This hit home with me.
