Tortilla Soup + Giveaway!

Tortilla Soup + Giveaway!

Friends! I’m so excited to bring you today’s post because I have partnered with Angela of Sweet is the Spice (along with a few other amazing brands) to host a weeklong giveaway as our way of saying thank you to all of you for your support in the past several months.

As many of you know my six-year old friend Makayla Borg has been fighting an inoperable brain tumor since last June. Read more about Makayla and how to help here. Angela reached out to me last year offering help from her and through her sponsorship program Heed the Need at a time when I was desperately looking for ways to help Makayla and her family out. Sweet is the Spice has been donating $1 from each spice blend sold, to Makayla. This is still ongoing so we can reach our $1000 goal. We have come very close and could not have done it without all your help!
