I LOVE SOMEONE WITH CANCER Photo Contest

As most of my followers know, my grandma is the inspiration behind Kali's Kreations. My grandma survived Thyroid Cancer and a Brain Tumor before Lung Cancer claimed her life October 2, 2011. She was my best friend and the one who taught me a love and passion for yarn. This year I'd like to honor her memory by holding a photo contest.

This is a photo contest to love and support someone you know who has cancer, any form of cancer. Photos will be uploaded to my facebook page Kali's Kreations and people will vote for their favorite for the month of September and the top  photo will win a free hat for the person they are supporting with cancer. To vote for a photo, you must "LIKE" the photo. You will only be able to vote for each photo once but you can vote on every photo if you chose. And voters do NOT have to be a Kali's Kreations fan to vote! The winners will be announced on the anniversary of my grandma's death, October 2, 2013.

To enter:

  • Email me at kaliskreations13@gmail.com with a HAPPY photo of the person you're entering to win. Please only happy photos as this is supposed to be a positive contest to support the people we love who are sick. 
  • Please also include: 
    • the sick person's name (you don't have to include a last name unless you want to)
    • age
    • type of cancer
    • and a short story of an activity you hope to do with them once they are well. 

Someone must enter for you! 

YES SURVIVORS MAY BE ENTERED! Instead of the activity you'd like to do with them, include a story about their success!

This is my happy memory of my grandma. This picture was taken the day she taught me to knit when I was 10 years old. That's me, my grandma, sister and my mom. This is one of the happiest memories I have of my grandma. She taught me her gift and I enjoy sharing that gift with people around the world every day.


PRIZES HAVE BEEN DONATED!!!!
In addition to the 4 winners who will win a Kali's Kreations hat, Flamingos & Flip Flops has donated a pair of awareness flops, and Heavenly Hippo has donated an awareness key fob!! There will now be 6 winners chosen by the highest amount of likes on each photo!! Please stop by and thank these pages for their donations!

  2. Hi Brittany! I just got done checking out your blog and love, love, love this blog post. It really is crazy to think how cancer affects us all one way or another. Being that you are a military spouse, I had a quick question for you and some information that you might find valuable about military members and cancer. I was hoping you'd email me back when you have a moment. Thanks!

    PS. Once again, Great contest idea!!
