So who watched the finale of Oprah’s Big Give last night?  I was sitting on my couch in head-cold, sore-throat misery and caught the tail end of it.  Interesting concept – who can be the most generous, giving person.  The survivor of philanthropy so to speak.  One of the last things Oprah did on the show was to encourage others to go out and give of themselves – their time, their money, whatever.  Just give.

And what a happy coincidence that this week Melanie over at Bloggy Giveaways is hosting her quarterly carnival where all sort of generous bloggers give stuff away free.  Yep.  Free.  And of course I want to participate, but as you all know I’ve been on a bit of a “stuff” kick lately, and so I am a little loathe to add to the clutter that I know is already accumulating in your homes.  And I’m feeling extra generous and wanting to make difference after my run in with Oprah last night.  So instead of a traditional giveaway, I’m doing it a little bit different.

A while back I posted briefly on Goods 4 Girls, the effort spearheaded by Deanna of Crunchy Chicken to supply girls in Africa with reusable cloth menstrual pads.  The effort has been very successful already but there are lots more girls in need and Deanna practically has aid organizations falling all over her to get their hands on donated pads.

So for my bloggy giveaway I will donate a Lunapads Goods 4 Girls Starter Kit on behalf of my winner.  All you need to do to get in on the giving action is leave a comment on this post.  I’ll do a random draw sometime on Sunday April 27th and post the winner on the 28th.  And don’t forget to check out all the other giveaways, either.  You might actually score something free from one of them.  Here you’ll just go away knowing that you helped out some girls in need.

Good Luck!
