Sephora Shimmer Lip Gloss

Welcome to Small Steps to Health where we do not take orders from a cookie!

Proctor & Gamble is selling T-shirts to raise money to support families that are affected by disasters in their Tide Load of Hope program.  This post is a brief discussion of the Proctor & Gamble’s Tide Load of Hope program and a Sephora Super Shimmer Lip Gloss giveaway.  Are you wondering how the two are related?  :D

Tide Load of Hope Program

During Hurricane Katrina, it became clear to Proctor & Gamble that families affected by the disaster have a difficult time trying to get clean clothes.  Hence, their free mobile laundry service was born.  Their Load of Hope truck (outfitted with 32 washers and dryers) would drive to the impacted areas and provide free laundry service to families.  Their Load of Hope van would partner with local laundromats that still have access to electricity to allow impacted families to wash their clothes for free. 

But how is the Tide Load of Hope Program Related to Sephora Lip Gloss?

Well… it is a little bit of a stretch, but here goes. 

Proctor & Gamble is a sponsor for my bowling league and BlogHer has asked me to help promote the program.  Hence, a lot of positive vibes on my part. 

I have a box Sephora Super Shimmer Lip Gloss sitting around that I got it as a birthday gift recently.  I do not use shimmer lip gloss.  It makes me feel like a teen.  And I want you to visit the Load of Hope t-shirt website

Hmmmm… a giveaway for visiting the Load of Hope t-shirt website is a brilliant idea <patting myself on the back>.

Sephora Super Shimmer Lip Gloss Giveaway.

I am giving away:

1 box of Sephora Super Shimmer Lip Gloss.  It contains three mini tubes at 0.23 fl oz each.  The colors are called: precious pink, rosy glow, and bronzed beauty.  I have no idea if there is a scent or a taste.

In order to win, you get one entry for the following:

1.  Visit the Load of Hope T-Shirt website and leave a comment as to which t-shirt color makes the Tide logo most visible.
2.  Link back to this post on your blog.
3.  Add to your blog roll.
4.  Tell someone about this giveaway and have them leave your name in the comment.

You have four chances to win this prize.  This giveaway is only available for US residents.  Also remember to post a followup comment if you do #2 and #3 (I am not a mind reader).

I do not get too many comments, so your chances of winning is pretty good.

Giveaway ends Friday, March 20th! Winners will be notified in the comments and via email.  Good luck!

Until next time and thanks for stopping by Small Steps to Health.

Not a US resident but that is such an excellent idea for the free laundry service and all! And so sweet of you to give away the lip gloss- I’m excited because Sephora is coming to my city and I’ve never been to their store before :D

@Sagan – Definitely join their Beauty Insider club. It is free, but you get more free samples after accumulating X of points and a free gift on your birthday. I also click through to their website from my Discover Card site, hence 5% cash back. With my cash back from the card, I trade it in for Sephora giftcards ($20 points for $25). So I buy a lot of makeup from Sephora at a discount. My motto is never to pay retail when shopping. :D
