Clipa for a Cure! {giveaway}

{GIVEAWAY CLOSED - pending winner verification}

The wonderful folks over at Clipa have a great promotion going right now. They will donate 10% of the retail price of every pink Clipa purchased to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation. The BCRF is the most highly rated breast cancer organization in the U.S., consistently receiving the highest rating—4 stars—since 2002 from Charity Navigator and outperforming over 5,000 other charities.
The pink Clipa is a great way for you to express your support for Breast Cancer awareness while helping raise money for breast cancer research. And you get a great product too.

Clipa is one of the most ingenious inventions I've seen in a while. I absolutely love it! It is designed like a bracelet--in fact you can wear it as a bracelet so that it is always handy--but function and design go hand in hand with this beauty.
How many times have you had to set your purse down somewhere that you wouldn't normally touch with your own hands? I'm talking about public places like bars, restaurants, movie theaters, arenas, at concerts, sporting events, public restrooms...the list goes on.

Not only is it unsafe to have your purse sitting on the floor, it's unclean. Think about the germs. Oh, I'm sure the place gets a daily mopping, but in the meantime are you supposed to just plop down your purse and hope for the best?

I have to admit, this was not even something I thought about until I heard about the Clipa. And now that it's been brought to my attention, I'm using my Clipa every chance I get. Germs are everywhere, we can't fight them all, but we can certainly use precautionary measures to limit our exposure to them.
And that's where the Clipa does an outstanding job. The design is so simple, it works. The Clipa is a round metal ring, painted in bright colors or metallic finishes, with a hinge so it can easily be opened, and two clip pads with non-slip surfaces to cling wherever you need it. And even though it's heavy-duty metal that can hold up to 45 pounds, it weighs only about 2 ounces.

That's one sturdy little Clipa!

Check out this article from ABC News on handbag germs.

I for one am bad about plopping my handbag on the kitchen counter, especially when I'm bringing in groceries and stuff. I never thought about the millions of germs that hitched a ride on the bottom of my purse! And just washing my hands before preparing food won't kill the germs already there because of my purse.

It makes you think, doesn't it? Isn't it time you invested in a Clipa? Getting in the habit of using the Clipa could keep you and your loved ones a lot healthier!

The Clipa is reasonably priced and comes in many different colors. There's a special shipping price of only $3.25 to most locations in the US. It's a small investment that could reap big benefits in health and cleanliness.

I was sent a Clipa for review and let me tell you, it now goes everywhere my purse goes! If I'm not wearing it as a bracelet, I've got it hanging from my purse strap so it is always within reach. Here's a great video on using the Clipa -

Clipa very generously sent me two Clipas - one for myself to review, and one to giveaway to a lucky Shady Lady reader! You have your choice of polished silver or white.

Hey, Deb.

I would prefer the silver giveaway Clipa. I would choose the pink for the cure Clipa as my dearest MIL was recently successfully treated for breast cancer.

Laura
