This is my friend Teresa's baby. Everyone say awww!
(Full disclosure, I have been friends with this woman for most of my life. She's doing this giveaway because she is a very good and generous friend. I hope you all have a friend like this in your life. She feeds my soul in the very best ways.)
Ok, parenthetical gushing aside. You are all going to wish you lived in Canada for this one.
Teresa is a certified Bradley Method Instructor. Her 2 children were birthed at home with midwives in attendance. She is strong and gentle and wise and you would be very, very lucky to be in her class if you were having a baby for the first time.
In her own words.
Preparation is the key to a safe and treasured birth. I offer small, personal, interactive childbirth classes that are about educating parents, supporting moms and helping dads as they journey on this path of birthing a child. The 12 weekly classes focus on nutrition, relaxation, exercise and education, ensuring ample time to ask questions and put into practice all that is learned. Birth is so much more than a physical act, it demands all of a mom's emotional and mental resources. Whom she chooses to support her in this will be drawn into the journey of exploring life in a new way. I am glad to be a small part of helping you have the best experience you can.Teresa has donated tuition to one of her classes. The value of this gift is $375.
I teach in Calgary and Red Deer, Alberta.
The bummer is that you have to live in either Red Deer or Calgary, Alberta, Canada.
But I know a lot of you do live there, or know someone who does. This prize is transferable. So you can win it for someone else you know. Do you know anyone in Calgary or Red Deer who is expecting right now? Enter to win and give it to her.
How do you enter?
As you know, we need to raise $10,000 to finish building an orphanage by September 30. Why we need to build an orphanage.
We need your help.
Please help us tell our story to more and more people. Every tweet using the hash tag #thecharisproject with a link to one of these posts, or share of our facebook page, or cause is eligible to win one of these cool prizes. So is every donation.
Winners will be chosen at random from all entries after the contest closes shortly before midnight on Saturday, September 10, 2011.
Because the prize is regional, we're going to run this giveaway a little differently. You need to either leave a comment on her facebook page saying "I tweeted about/donated to/shared on facebook The Charis Project." Obviously you shoudl do on of those things first. She will choose a winner from that group. It must be a comment, not a like.
You are still eligible to win all the other prizes as well as this one.
