Second Quarter Raffle: Three Chances to Win and Raise Money for Soldiers' Angels

Be sure to get your raffle tickets NOW for the chance to win 1 of 3 amazing prizes and help to raise money for Soldiers' Angels.  

"Soldiers' Angels is a volunteer-led 501(c)(3) nonprofit providing aid and comfort to the men and women of the United States Army, Marines, Navy, Air Force, Coast Guard, and their families. Founded in 2003 by the mother of two American soldiers, its hundreds of thousands of Angel volunteers assist veterans, wounded and deployed personnel and their families in a variety of unique and effective ways.  "May No Soldier Go Unloved," encapsulates the motivation behind Soldiers' Angels.   The volunteers of Soldiers' Angels work tirelessly to demonstrate active care and concern for veterans, the wounded, deployed service members and their families through care packages, letters, care and comfort, emergency aid, and more." (from the Soldiers' Angels website)

For just $5, you get 3 tickets - that means three chances to win one of these fantastic prizes:

Danita is a self-taught mixed media artist and makes primitive folk art paintings, art dolls, and jewelry.   She is a self-described dreamer and maker of things who says that pretty much all of her time is spent either creating or thinking about creating.  Danita says: "When I create, I travel to a world where everything is possible, dreams come true, animals are your friends and you can fly on top of a paper bird, just because you want to. It keeps me sane in a crazy world that spins faster that my head can, it keeps me away from the ugly, the bad and the things I can't understand. This peaceful wonderland is dying to escape into our reality, and it does it through my art, dying to show us that all we need is love. Every time you look at my paintings, you leave a comment or you take one home, you share a piece of that dreamworld with me. And I thank you for it, deeply, from the bottom of my heart. Because you let me know that a dreamer can dream, and that my dream is not that crazy after all."

You have the chance to win A 5 week online course, Mixed Media From the Heart with Danita.  From her site:  "More than just a painting class, I will show you the mixed media techniques I use on my paintings to journey through my process for creating mixed media art as an outlet for my dreams, my worries, and my imagination to create art with a personal and distinctive style that you will love to call your own."  Class begins June 25th.
