A Furniture Auction and Giveaway for a Great Cause


Hello again! I’m here today on behalf of the amazingly talented Larissa from Prodigal Pieces who is generously auctioning off one of her very own furniture pieces to benefit Samaritan’s Purse, and giving away $350 prize package. I could not be more thrilled to be a part of this awesome event!

If you follow me on Instagram (I’d love for you to follow me here!), you may have seen me dropping off our Operation Christmas Child boxes.

Just dropped off our #operationchristmaschild boxes! There’s still time to put one together! ???

We filled two boxes, one for a girl and one for a boy. My boys picked out the boy’s items, and I had a ball finding girly things for the girl’s box. This is just one way Samaritan’s Purse helps those who need it most. What a great way to teach our children about giving to others.

This is the furniture piece Larissa is auctioning off through eBay:

All proceeds will benefit Samaritan’s Purse. This auction begins to today on eBay through December 6, 2015, and no need to worry about shipping, it’s FREE! Larissa will have this delivered right to your front door! (Open to U.S. Residents only, sorry!)

    My Favorite is putting up the tree and all the memories from ornaments from the past! Thank you for a great giveaway.

  5. Great giveaway! Thanks for the opportunity and kudos to Larissa for the auction to benefit Samaritan’s Purse.

  6. I have many favorites… My hubby reads “Twas the Night Before Christmas” with our children on Christmas Eve. Our children find the pickle ornament on the tree and this is when they get to unwrap their own ornament that gets added to their collection. Thanks for this giveaway!

  7. My favorite is putting up decorations on Black Friday! We don’t leave the house to join in the shopping craziness. Last year, I finally let go of my idea of the perfect tree. My kids (teens) decorate it themselves, I don’t move a thing…. our tree has never looked so beautiful!

    • Oh I love that you gave them creative control over the tree! I usually don’t tackle the Black Friday crowds either, but I did shop online a bit this year! Good luck on the giveaway!
