Help Breast Cancer with Your Writing, Your Picture

If you’re a writer who has had breast cancer, longtime Sharing with Writers subscriber Nikki Leigh is asking you to share your story. Here is what she says:

Show Off Your Flawless Beauty - Help The Breast Cancer Research Foundation and Have a Chance to Win a 75 Carat Diamond Necklace
We are looking for breast cancer survivors who would like to share their positive story with others as part of our Flawless Beauty Photo Contest. We want to feature women and men who are a flawless beauty -- that doesn't mean the prettiest face or hottest body - we're looking for people with a unique and inner beauty. If you would like to share your story, email nikki@nikkileigh.com. For full details about the contest, a chance to win a 75 carat diamond necklace and to benefit The Breast Cancer Research Foundation, visit www.jonravencontest.com

PS: This is a contest that is being held in conjunction with this promotion that you may want to enter. I did. I submitted an inspirational article on how writing helped me overcome cancer and this “flawless beauty” was part of it. Still, a win would help me with the commercial acting I do, too. So how about dropping over and voting? They use the star method—much like Amazon’s. And you do have to confirm. If I win, I’ll make another donation to the Breast Cancer fund (which I’d do anyway!). When deciding to enter yourself, it helps to know they’re looking for inner beauty—not a raving beauty. We writers all qualify on that level.
