Win: A “Free Palestine” pin-free scarf and burka from Jilbaab

Hello and Salaams my dearies,

So, I don’t usually get involved in political issues or take sides, but sometimes showing your support and choosing a side is VERY necessary. I don’t intend to force my opinion and views on anyone reading this post, so if you aren’t in support of Palestine then feel free to just ignore this post and move on. Now on to the giveaway..

So thanks to Humayra, of Jilbaab, I have both a “Free Palestine” Pin-free scarf and a kiddies burka to give away to one of you lucky ladies. The pin-free scarf usually retails for R130, of which R30 goes to Palestine, and the burka for R90, of which R20 goes to Palestine. It really is great way to show your support! If you’d like to read more about Jilbaab or would like to purchase either the pin-free scarf or the kiddies burka (or even a ladies one) then you can hop on over to Jilbaab’s website, Facebook page or Instagram.


So if you’d like to be in the running to win both the pin-free scarf and the kiddies burka, all you’ve got to do is comment below stating that you support Palestine. Your comment should read: “I, insert name here, support Palestine.

The giveaway will end on  31 August and the winner will be chosen at random from the comments below!
