So why the Wedding Dress Raffle?
Well, if no one has noticed yet, their is a recession. I was supposed to be married and it did not work out. Simple right? We had the rings, reception hall all I needed was some shoes and I was good to go. As fate would have it I broke it off. He wasn't a bad guy, the timing wasn't right. Actually we are great friends and he just had a baby. Really I am thrilled for him.
The dress is gorgeous and I figured I am a new author promoting my book Who's Got Skills, I didn't like the consignment shops in my area and really I was too spacey to remember to look for the shop to bring the dress to. Really, I wanted to do something nice for someone else. President Obama said how will you help others in 2009.
My way of doing is, I have friends that either have lost someone to breast cancer or had breast cancer. My mom is an RN Oncology Nurse and she loses quite a bit of patients to various types of cancer. Her stories of the great people she has aided made me want to give 5% of what I made from the raffle to the National Breast Research foundation.
I want to give a smile to a Bride that wants a dress but may not have the funds to spend allot of money for a dress and a veil.
Finally, I want people to read my book Who's Got Skills and enjoy a story about Love, Murder and Motorcycles. For $20.00 as an entry to buy a book. I consider that to be a great deal.
So no it's not a gimmick or get rich scheme. I just think my book is worth the money spent.
Breast Cancer Research is important and finally. If I can't be a fabulous size 8 Bride someone should be.
Now that I have explained to the ones knitting their eyebrows worried about the validity of it all go to my website and get Who's Got Skills at
