sponsor highlight + giveaway: the shine project

I'm so excited to share with you all about The Shine Project, a soon-to-be non-profit run by Ashley, a girl with such an incredible heart. Ashley not only is a wonderful wife and friend, but a dreamer. That's why I adore her! 

Ashley blogs at The Shine Project, sells items to raise money for inner city High School kids and tweets here. She is such a creative soul with so much passion and love to spread!

Here's a little blurb from Ashley, herself, explaining the heart behind The Shine Project. 
Heyyy new friends! I'm Ashley, and I blog over at The Shine Project.
I created The Shine Project at the beginning of this year to motivate others to go after their goals, and spread their light to others. I believe that service is the best way to feel happiness and love in our lives, and I created SHINE necklaces to help remind us of our daily purpose. Money from each necklace sold goes into a scholarship fund to help inner city high school students go to college. You can read more about that HERE and HERE. The Shine Project is in the process of becoming a Non-Profit organization so that thousands more students can have a positive future. 

Here are a few items she sells to raise scholarship money for those hopeful students!

The winner of today's giveaway will win a Shine Necklace (pictured above) AND a Large ad space for December on The Shine Project Blog. Score!

All week, you can use the code Birthday Special for a buy two Shine necklaces, get one free deal!
