A little help? {giveaway}

Friends! This is a cry for help, with an incentive :D 
A little back story-I've mentioned before that my father had a stroke last year. He lost the use of his right side, his dominant side. It's been quite a struggle for my parents, always 1 step forward and 2 steps back in his progress, but they always have a smile on their face for us so I know they are trying so hard to be positive! What I might not have mentioned before, is that years ago, my mother was hit by a drunk driver :( She lost the use of her left arm, which was her dominant arm/hand. My parents joke that together they are a perfect pair of hands! They've had so much struggle this past year, and as Valentine's Day approaches, I can't help but to feel a little sad. This will be their first Valentine's Day since dads stroke. My dad was a great gift giver when it came to my mom. Even if there was not much money, he found a way to get mom something special. Jewelry was his specialty, and he had great taste, and it was always a surprise for mom. 

Here is where I need your help. I've entered my parents in a "cutest couple" contest at my local jewelry store. 
I'm asking for your vote!! And in exchange, you will be entered into a giveaway!
What's in it for you?
$10 Amazon Gift Code!

To enter the giveaway:
Go to: Stambaugh Jewelers Facebook page and "like" them
Click the "vote" button, and my parents are now on page 1.
This is the picture you'll need to find and click vote! That is all!



Taken just weeks before my dads stroke, one of my fave pictures of them!

Now when you've done that-and Please, be honest! This means so much to me, and if I win, I can give my mom the necklace from my dad, it would be a huge surprise!!
Come back here, and leave a comment that you've voted!! That's it!
I'll pick a random comment at the end of the contest (via Random.org). This giveaway opportunity will end February 11th and the winner will be announced that day!

Thank you ALL so much! I'll let you know if we win, we need about 60ish votes to win right now!
<3

I went to vote and had a problem because of the cookie thing and my computer. Because I can't vote, would you like me to blog about this? I think it's a really sweet thing you're doing and I want to help.

The facebook link is not working for me.
My dad lost one of his eyes a decade ago in a work accident. Just a few weeks ago my mom got by a chainsaw while cutting wood, it got her eyelid, but thankfully her eye was saved. She was joking around the other day that at least between them they would have had a good pair of eyes..oh my. Not funny at all, but I could relate with what you wrote.
Good Luck to your parents!

Chevelle said...

Your story about your parents triumphs in the last couple of years both broke my heart & warmed it right back up. THAT is LOVE! I'm sorry for the tragedy they have had to overcome, but what an amazing example they are setting!!! I know that things like that affect everyone in the family, not just your parents. It's so hard to see our loved ones in pain, both physical and emotional. All my best for each & every one of you!

I voted & was #150. Only 22 more to go until you've moved them into 1st place. I hope they win!!!
