SURPRISE GIVEAWAY: Pockets of Dreams Clothing Gift Certificate

Earlier this spring, my mom bought my daughter the most darling dress(as pictured above with her beautiful aunt!) , that she continually gets compliments on. Along with the dress came an adorable tag and information piece that only took me a few months to actually examine and realize that my mom had purchased much more than a dress. The tag was something very similar to what you see below:

Talk about stopping me in my tracks!

This led me to do more research about Pockets of Dreams, the company that my mom bought this dress from, but more importantly, the company that is helping women around the world that they don't even know.

Here are some interesting things that I found out about Pockets of Dreams:
  • Profits go to help women and children in struggling economies, including the Philippines and Tanzania.
  • For many of their seamstresses, sewing is the sole source of income for their families.
  • Pockets of Dreams is owned and operated by four women with families and jobs and a heart for the poor. (see http://susansagun.blogspot.com/2010/06/give-it-up-you-cant-make.html)
  • Clothing is of high quality with adjustable straps, serged edges and completely machine washable
  • Purses and totes are of high quality, durable materials that will stand up to daily use.
  • Matching purses are available for all little girl outfits.
  • Mother/daughter aprons are available as a set or sold individually, while supplies last.
Having said all that, the wonderful founders of Pockets of Dreams are generously offering (1) lucky HC&B reader a $50 gift certificate! (That certainly will come in handy for back to school shopping or a birthday gift!)

Here's how to enter:
  • Check out the Pockets of Dreams website and post a comment right here letting us know what item you like best
  • Be sure to include your name and location (city/state)
  • Please post your comment by Friday, September 3rd at 11:59 PST
  • Become a Follower of Houses, Couches and Babies to receive an additional entry (those that are already followers automatically receive an additional entry)
  • For a third entry, "like" Houses, Couches and Babies on Facebook (again, if you already like HC&B on Facebook, you will automatically receive the third entry)
The winner will be randomly selected shortly after September 3. Please check back to see if you have won, as winners will not be contacted.

If you want to buy something from Pockets of Dreams now, please be sure to use the promo code HCB10 to receive 10% off your purchase between August 27 and September 10.

Good luck!
