I'm doing something new and unique here this week at Forestbound - a chance to win three one of a kind items in support of an organization who is doing incredible work raising awareness about a rare brain disease that is very close to my heart.

I'll be celebrating FTD (frontotemporal degeneration) Awareness Week by raffling off three Forestbound pieces - a utility pouch, a tote bag, and our brand new duffle bag. 100% of the proceeds from this raffle will go directly to the AFTD (Association for Frontotemporal Degeneration), the nonprofit organization hosting FTD Awareness Week.

Frontotemporal degeneration/dementia (FTD) is a neurodegenerative brain disease that is commonly misdiagnosed as Alzheimer's disease or Parkinson's disease. In 2009 my father, Arpiar Saunders, was diagnosed with this disease -- the incredible work that the AFTD has done providing resources & support as well as funding research to find the cause and hopefully a cure for this disease has been invaluable to my family. I'm beyond excited to be raffling off some of my bags to raise money for this great organization - and I hope you will be too.

Raffle 'tickets' can be purchased on the Forestbound website - they will be listed as items in my store (just like bags) but for once these items won't sell out. You can buy as many entries into the raffle as you'd like -- the raffle for all three items will end at midnight on Friday and winners for the three items will be chosen at random on Saturday.

And remember - all of the money raised will go directly to charity. 

Endless thanks for supporting both Forestbound and the AFTD through this raffle - good luck to all entrants!
