The Shine Project GIVEAWAY! (GIVEAWAY NOW CLOSED)

The Shine Project GIVEAWAY! (GIVEAWAY NOW CLOSED)
(now closed)
I’m so excited to introduce you today to Ashley!  Isn’t she a doll?  And not only is she nearing illegal levels of cuteness, she is also one of the biggest do-gooders I know. 
Ashley is the face behind The Shine Project, an organization designed to inspire you to live the highest quality of life obtainable.
From hosting service events around the country to providing scholarships to inner-city teens to simply bringing light to those who need hope,
The Shine Project is all about love, sacrifice, and CHANGE. 
Today Ashley is launching her latest project Pay It Forward.  This genius idea is designed to get people started doing small and simple things everyday that will make an impact on somebody else in their community.

Here’s how it works: With each act of kindness you perform, you can leave behind a card with a unique ID number on it, encouraging your benefactor to do the same.  You can log into a website and track where your card has gone and how much impact you’ve made with each simple act!

The cards can be purchased from The Shine Project Store for only $2.50 per pack of 10, along with many other Shine items available, the proceeds of which go to The Shine Scholarship Fund.
Today, to help spread the word, she has offered Better After readers a chance to win three of her most popular items!  One lucky winner will receive all three:
The Circle Shine rose necklace seen below:

A Shine wristband:
AND this super cute Be the Change Tee!

(Stop being so dang cute Ashley.  Just stop it.)

  76. February 25, 2012 / 4:40 AM

    Visited the Shine Shop AND thought this was such a great idea, I shared this with my daughter to use as her Wedding Guest Gifts so all their guests could receive one and pay it forward. The reach of this will be global as there’s many coming from EU from the Groom’s family…what a great idea!

  80. February 25, 2012 / 5:12 AM

    This is such a good idea! I always hear on the radio of people who do these random acts of kindness–but it would be nice to know if they passed it on.

  81. February 25, 2012 / 5:15 AM

    I love that tshirt! I’ve always lived that quote–I think it has more impact than the old childhood saying of “do unto others as you wish they do unto you.”. But I do love that the jewelry isn’t expensive and proceeds go to the shins scholarship fund!

  88. February 25, 2012 / 8:11 AM

    WHEN YOU LOOK AT THE CARD TO HAND OUT IT STATES “GO TO http://WWW.SPREADTHESHINE.COM...” BUT WHEN I LOOKED FOR THAT WEBSITE THERE WASN’T ONE. THE LINK TO THE STORE WORKS BUT I DIDN’T SEE A LINK TO THE INSTRUCTION WEBSITE THERE EITHER. COULD THERE BE A MISPRINT ON THE CARD?

  89. February 25, 2012 / 8:15 AM

    please ignore my previous comment. when I clicked on the link from the shine project website it took me to it. sorry.

  90. February 25, 2012 / 8:35 AM

    I love this idea! When I was a Starbucks addict, I would pay for the person behind me. They told me one day that people would ‘pass it forward’ for hours. I think it was a nightmare for them but it sure made me smile. I’m definitely on board!

  91. February 25, 2012 / 9:00 AM

    What an amazing idea!

  92. February 25, 2012 / 9:03 AM

    love, love, love this project…and the pay it forward request is so doable even if you don’t have the cards to do it with. Just doing an act of random kindness anytime will set your spirit soaring. If we all treated each other with kindness, and didn’t expect anything in return, what an amazing world this would be….Not that it isn’t already!!!
