June in Canada is both Pride Month and National Indigenous History Month and we wanted to find a fun way to celebrate and get folks involved! Leslie Anne came up with this challenge idea.
She will be making 3 limited edition pairs of beaded earrings during the month (see examples below!) and will be holding a raffle. To enter the raffle you have to complete one of the challenges below and send proof by either a tweet to @stamourla, or email it to her email@example.com. More challenges completed equal more entries! Use the #DBPrideIndigenousMonth to help share the challenge!
The winner will be drawn July 1st.
