A Week of Giveaways for CHD, Day 3, PART 1!

Are you ready for the next CHD giveaway? (2 other giveaways are still going, you can enter here for a necklace or here for a custom blog makover.)

I could keep posting bits of information taken from websites and blogs, but hopefully you're doing research. Instead, a comment left already this week. Cora, sweet girl, you're doing it. You're saving lives. xo - Aunt Natalie

"I learned how simple a pulse ox test is to perform on newborns and I will DEFINITLY be asking for one next time, thanks to Cora!"

What it's all about. Education and information.

Keep doing research.

AND, since you're here, I figured I'd give you something. I am so thankful to the sponsors of the giveaways here this week, and I encourage you to visit their websites/Etsy stores, and support those who support Kristine and Cora.

There are many ways to enter each giveaway this week. Those will be listed below. However, I also want to let you know that for every entry in every contest this week, up to 200 comments, OnceUponACline.com will donate $.50/comment (quick math = $100!) to Cora's family. So now you really have pressure to enter these contests. Everyone wins!

Today, you have the chance to win a camera strap cover from SheyB. I ordered one of Shey's straps last year, and was impressed with the quailty and affordability of the strap. The strap covers do not take the place of your strap, they just make it look chic, and also provide comfort for your neck.

When I contacted Shey last week to see if she'd make a light pink strap cover, she told me she'd check her fabric inventory and get back to me. I am literally blown away. Not only is the strap cover light pink, it is a new design (I believe the FIRST of it's kind), and it's appropriately named "The Cora". (Please note, these covers are designed for the straps of DSLR cameras.)

****I am holding this giveaway because Kristine is my friend and I care about her and about you. Please tell the people in your life about CHD so that no other parent has to learn about it when it's too late. I'm not asking you to follow my blog or my twitter so that I get more followers. It's an easy way for you to make me pay up. That's all.

The pulse oximetry test should be done on every newborn since it is cheap, quick, and non-invasive.

I can't believe that they don't automatically test for CHD at birth?
