GIVEAWAY ALERT: Faboo Pays it Forward....

Somehow, I won 5 giveaways in the span of just 1 year.
I am in utter disbelief at my dumb luck.
Here's my latest win, from the lovely Diana at Please Sir.

In an effort to help the economy and a fellow blogger, 
I've decided to Pay it Forward.

It's 500 free business cards from U Print!
(Printed for free)

Contest Rules:
You need to leave me a comment explaining your situation.
Perhaps you were fired for blogging or tweeting at work, or
laid-off from a publication that has recently folded, due to the economy.
Maybe you are struggling to get your small business off the ground,
and need a spiffy bizcard to get the word out...
Maybe your spouse was laid-off, 
& now you need to re-enter the workplace...
Either way, please leave me your comment
by 8pm MONDAY 4/13, & we will choose the winner.
***Edited to say that if YOU have a blog, 
but have a needy friend you would like to help,
you may pay it fwd by entering a comment in their name,
with their story.****
Good Luck!

You are so good - I can think of some of my friends that are out of work and are looking - they were just
caught in the midst of a lay-off and I think a fun card would be just the sort of thing to make one smile.
I can also think of a good friend who is so crafty and a card for her would be fun too.

please pick us. we never win anything. We are lucky in love,but that's it.
My husband' real estate business folded in this economy. We have a vacant investment property (the pipe burst a few months ago), lots of great business ideas but not enough funds to get them off the ground. The business cards would be huge for us.
U can reach us at Court_geller (at)

You are so cute and nice as all get out. I'm just a writer that can't seem to sell a book. Close but no cigar type of thing. Though I'd throw my hat in the ring.

Could you please pick lottery numbers for me...

I can think of a sitter who would benefit from a card, her name is "Ernie" and she was raised our sons while I worked. She still helps me out, cleaning and doing things. She has good common sense, and a heart of gold, she loves kids and could use some more work.
Not easy for sitters now.

Heidi, I'm only stopping in to say this is a wonderful idea, to reach out and help someone. I love when it is paid forward and from the heart.

All my best for a golden weekend!!xoxo

You are more than kind! More than generous!

I would love this opportunity for my little Red Otter business. I'm actually in the process of trying to become even more entrepeneurial and make something of my journal/book business. I'm in desperate need of business cards, was actually going to buy some, but now I'm going to wait and see :)

What a nice 'pay-it-forward'. You are very sweet, offering your services to someone in need of a little card to spread the word.
