8 Days of Giveaways! Day FIVE: Sudara
Dec 12 2015
Hello, friends and welcome to…
8 Days of Giveaways:
PUNJAMMIES™ by Sudara
In September, I wrote to you about my successful quest for the perfect pajama pants. It was a quest I’d posed initially and facetiously as “of eternal significance” until I discovered PUNJAMMIES™ which are gorgeous, comfy jammy pants AND are made by Sudara, an organization that works to free women from sex slavery by giving them living wage jobs. “Every pair of PUNJAMMIES™,” in fact, “is named after a woman who is now steadily employed in a stable, living-wage job with a Sudara sewing center partnership.”
I mean, who knew buying pajama pants CAN ACTUALLY BE an act of eternal significance? Right?
So here we are 4 months later, and I’m as in love with my PUNJAMMIES™ now as I was then. EVEN MORE exciting is the fact that Sudara eagerly partnered with me for this giveaway so one of you gets to win a pretty pair of the flannel Sara Capris PUNJAMMIES™ pictured to the right.
Gotta say, Sudara gets cooler and cooler all the time.
From Sudara: Let’s get right down to it: No human being should be owned by anyone, anywhere, for any reason — ever. It really is that simple.
We are passionate about India — where some of the highest estimates of slavery and sex-trafficking anywhere in the world are reported. And while it may seem overwhelming, we are hopeful because we are seeing how safe, sustainable jobs are making a way for women to make their way out of the trade- and stay out.
Our PUNJAMMIES™ are inspired by the beauty, colors and textures seen throughout the local culture and are crafted by brave women in the community who wish to remain free from the trade they escaped.
That’s why we say that Sudara goods are made from hope, and made for comfort.
Today’s Giveaway is lightweight flannel Sara Capris PUNJAMMIES™ (pictured above.) TO ENTER, simply leave a comment on this blog post anytime until 11:59pm Pacific Time on Monday, December 14. (Psst… don’t enter on Facebook— though I LOVE comments there and read every one, I’m using the blog comment string to randomly select a winner). Any comment will work to enter, but if you’d like a prompt, tell us where you’d wear your PUNJAMMIES. Me? I pick Hawaii with all of you.
This giveaway is now closed.
Congratulations to Julia Robinson, winner of the PUNJAMMIES! Look for an email in your box, Julia.
Do Note: Multiple giveaways are going simultaneously — one every day for 8 days and each of them open for 48ish hours, so check back every day to see what new giveaways there are!
Also Note: This giveaway is open worldwide. None of this “America only” crap. We do not have time for America Only in this ComeUnity. Sudara is providing the PUNJAMMIES and U.S. shipping; I’ll supplement shipping if one of you wins from elsewhere.
Also-also Note: The artists selected for this giveaway were hand-picked by yours truly. They did not pay for these spots, nor do I benefit in any financial way by hosting these. Emotionally? I get a HUGE benefit. ‘Cause this stuff makes me happy. Each artist received a spot on the right sidebar (or, if you’re viewing on your mobile, at the bottom of the page) to advertise his/her stuff (hint: you can catch a preview there of what’s coming over the next few days), which is my gift to them to thank them for partnering with me. They’re rad.
