In it to end it - End It movement awareness post+giveaway

Slavery is Wrong.
You know it. We know it. As a country, (the US) has officially known it since 1863. But here's something you might not know -- Slavery still exists. We want every man, woman and child to know that there are 27 million men, women and children, just like them, living in the shadows. In brothels. In factories. In Quarries. Working as slaves. In 161 countries. Including our own. We are here to shine a light on slavery. No more bondage. No more sex trafficking. No more child laborers. No more, starting now. - from End It Movement website

I first heard about the End It Movement back in April at the Chicago Vampire Diaries Convention. During the panel with Nathaniel Buzolic, he talked passionately about his involvement in the cause. And since then, I've been researching, reaching out and raising awareness myself! I decided that maybe a giveaway - complete with End It-themed polishes and manis was the way to go! This giveaway is open internationally, and more prizes could be added before the end date - which is September 27. Always check the Rafflecopter widget for time remaining.

For 5 entries, you can create a manicure inspired by the End It Movement logo, a red X over a black background. Below are two examples of End It-themed manis :) The first one is mine, and the second is courtesy of my friend Amber from Amber Did It. The best part? Every mani sent to me will be featured on a page on this blog, in the top bar, for as long as I have this blog. Please name your photos with yourname.jpg or blogname.jog, and send them to

And the third way? You can donate one of the causes that supports the End It Movement! I have listed them below. You can also see them listed on the End It Movement website. If you choose this option for entry, you must provide me with a reciept of your donation. You can e-mail a copy at No matter the money you donate, you will be allotted 10 entries for donating. Donate what you can.

I will closely monitor these entries. If you denote in the Rafflecopter widget that you have donated, and I do not receive an e-mail receipt from you, your entry will be removed. If you denote you sent a mani picture, and I do not recieve one, your entry will be removed. The goal of this giveaway is to raise awareness for his cause. As I said before, I will showcase all manis sent to me, and they will stay showcased on this blog until this blog is no more :) Have any questions or concerns, PLEASE e-mail me at
