In a recent search looking for a particular person that one of our office staff knew of, Diviine Modestee's owner stumbled across the GoFundMe account of a woman trying to help her sister with her large medical bills and necessary surgery. The kindness of Rachel in wanting to help her sister really touched Chantelle, who comes from a large family of sisters and she felt moved to help.
The GoFundMe for Rachel's sister highlighted the following issues: "Hello, My sister is a single mom who has had every financial problem you could think of. She has also had every medical problem you could think of and with no way of paying for them. She recently was diagnosed with a stomach issue and was in need of an urgent and neccessary surgery to fix the problem and her constant pain. She squared away babysitters, work schedule and got everything in order for this surgery. She was scheduled to have it tomorrow, October 19, untill she got a call stating that she needed to pay $700 up front before this "urgent" surgery could be performed. Not having even $10 in her bank account she will not be getting this surgery and will have to suffer in pain untill she can get the money needed. We aren't asking for too much but enough for her to recieve this surgery and to help with medication afterwards. Thanks for your time & support!"
From Diviine Modestee's Diviine Deed Fund we were able to complete the amount that was needed for Rachel's sister to have her much-needed surgery. However, surgeries and after-care are both very expensive, so if you feel like you'd love to donate, just click on the photo to go directly to the GoFundMe page.
That's right!! Winners! We had a literal tie for first place at the stroke of Midnight last night. So what could we possibly do but award both these cute ladies a FREE swimsuit of their choice. Because we are awesome like that and so are they :)
Not in any order, here's the first winning picture. This is Natalie C. and her photo she described as: "Snorkeling on my honeymoon in Hawaii! This is the 'please nothing gross touch me' pose."
Natalie, congratulations on your wedding and we are so glad we could be part of your honeymoon <3
Next, we have Jaylyn N. She says: "Even a white girl who can barely swim loves Diviine Modestee swimwear! The extra coverage makes me feel like my pale-white skin isn't blinding everybody quite so much."
Love how the swimsuit matches the water! So pretty!
Congratulations to both Natalie and Jaylyn...to claim your free swimsuit, just email firstname.lastname@example.org with the style/color/size of top and bottom that you'd like us to send to you and your shipping address and we'll get your swimsuit right out to you. Thanks for participating in our contest :)
Thanks also to everyone who participated. We LOVE seeing photos of you wearing the swimsuits we've designed and enjoying them and looking beautiful and gorgeous.
Stay tuned for our weekly Thankful Tuesday giveaways starting next week!
...a giveaway? It seems these days there are more giveaways than apple pie! But that's fine by us. We're late getting the winners of our All-American Giveaway announced because we were out enjoying our apple pies, hot dogs and fireworks...hopefully you can forgive us :)
To enter, we asked that you like, share if you want, and comment on our facebook page with something you love about one of the suits and also something you love about America. Being the 4th of Jully and all. With that in mind, our winners, randomly selected are:
Andrea Osborne wins the Nautical Blue Stripe Ruffle Ruched Tankini and her choice of bottoms. She had this comment to say: "I love both of these suits! All of your suits are stylish and modest!!! America is the land of free. I love that we can have the freedom to do what we want: eat, work, live, and worship."
(Benjamin) Shakirra Dohm wins the Red Flounce Halter and her choice of bottoms. Here's her comment: "1) They are both so feminine and flattering! 2) My freedom is protected by those I love who care enough about freedom to (essentially) give up theirs for all of us. Truly amazing!"
Thanks to everyone who entered, especially on a busy holiday weekend. We always appreciate your support of our company. Andrea and Shakirra, please message us through Facebook to claim your swimsuits, thanks!

From our review samples, we can tell that maker Diviine Modestee pays attention to excellence in manufacturing, with high-quality fabrics that feel great against the skin and move just right.

A short while ago we spotted a celebrity wearing a swimsuit that reminded us a bit of one of our swimsuits and we thought..."hmmm...we really really like ours!" Don't you?
