How do I offer a giveaway item? I work with The Pin-Up Angels -, an organization which raises money for troops 1950's style. I made a signature piece for them and so far, it has raised over $1200 in proceeds :) And since the Homefront Street Team shares the same noble cause, I would love to become involved!


Please message me so I can join!
