Run To Home Base Fundraiser Raffle

Just wanted to bump this to the front page to congratulate #51 Laura J. for being the lucky winner! I also wanted to thank you all for being so generous. I don't know if you know this, but you helped Christine reach her goal in less than two days. When I posted this she only had about $500 of her $1000 goal, and when I checked later the next day she was over $1000! Not only did she reach her donation goal with your help, but she has exceeded it by nearly $500. I'm so proud of you all, thank you so much. The race is on May 22nd, so be sure to cheer for Christine! :)

This post is more of a personal nature, but I think it'll be of particular interest to my fellow polish lovers...

My friend Christine is running in the Run To Home Base 9K race. It's not just a race, it's a fundraiser for the Massachusetts General Hospital in order to provide clinical treatment to veterans with combat stress and traumatic brain injuries and also to provide assistance and support to their families.

So far, she's raised just under half of her $1,000 donation goal, and now I'm asking for a little of your help.

What's in it for you, you ask? Besides the warmth and satisfaction of knowing you've done something to help your fellow man? How about a chance to win a bottle of the discontinued and coveted holographic beauty, China Glaze Kaleidoscope Him Out?

China Glaze Kaleidoscope Him Out was part of the epic Kaleidoscope collection of hologram polishes that China Glaze released a few years back. All the shades are now discontinued and getting rather hard to find. This particular shade is a soft silvered blue with a strong chunky hologram effect. Pardon the ancient picture, but I haven't had enough natural light to take a new one.

And how about something to keep that Kaleidoscope Him Out company? Something like...

A bottle of Scrangie by Rescue Beauty Lounge, signed by me? You will be the only person on the planet with a signed bottle! Like the China Glaze polish, this shade is also sold out and becoming hard to find.


1. For $2, you get one raffle entry. $4 for two entries, $6 for 3 entries, and so on.

2. To donate your $2 (or whichever amount you choose to donate) and enter the raffle, visit and click "Make A Donation."

3. After you've made a donation to Run To Home Base, send an email to
that includes "kaleidoscope" in the subject line along with the name you donated under. Christine will keep a tally and assign you a number for each ticket/raffle entry based on the amount donated.

4. All donations must be in by 11:59pm, May 12th 2011 and a winner will be drawn at random on May 13th. The winner will receive one bottle of China Glaze Kaleidoscope Him Out and one signed bottle of Rescue Beauty Lounge Scrangie.

This raffle is open to everyone!

  1. That's so sweet that you're chipping in to help! Just made my donation, glad to help either way. Good luck to her!!

  2. ah this is such a great idea! I hope your friend makes her goal :)

  3. This is so wonderful of you, Scrangie. I'm going to donate!

  4. just donated, this is great! i love to chip in here and there, when it goes to a great cause and when there is a chance i might get polish out of it, your friend is really lucky to have you support her!

  5. donated! glad to help such a good cause.

  6. Okay I donated! Thank you Scrangie for helping support the troops!

  7. Okay I donated. Thank you Scrangie for helping support the troops!

  8. That's a really good idea.

  9. That's a really good thing you're doing :) Can we in Singapore take part in this?

  10. I love holographic polishes... Great mani! :)

  11. How many bottles of "scrangie" did you get for your collection? I ask because it reminds me of when my sister's children were in the paper and she bought a whole bunch and mailed them to all the family. She was so proud. Did you do something like that? Its so fun to have things like that happen.

  12. You're a great person for helping out with this, Scrangie. IMO, our veterans don't get nearly as much help with brain injuries and mental disorders as they need.

  13. Great idea! Heading over to donate now :)

  14. Anyone may enter as long as they donate using the link above(I'm Christine, by the way, the girl running the 9k :-) ) I'm not opposed to mailing the polishes internationally, I just want to raise as much as posible to help the veterans of New England get the medical care they need

  15. Hm, I already have both polishes.
