Friend of TreeHugger and eco-model, consultant, and designer Summer Rayne Oakes has sure piled up spiffy list of do-gooding on her resume since we first met her six years ago. From hosting programs on Planet Green to working with woman in Mozambique to improve their lives through cottage industry, she's made an indelible mark on the modern green scene. Some of her latest projects include launching Source4Style, an online resource that helps designers source and market fair-trade and sustainable materials, and designing ecologically-preferred home wares and fashion accessories for brands like Portico, Payless Shoes, and Modo Eco eyewear. So when she rang us up and asked if we'd help promote a giveaway bundle of her best stuff, we were all over it. And so, we present the Big Eco-Conscious Holiday Giveaway. Click through for details on how to enter.

To enter to win, you've got to give us something first -- an answer to Summer's Big Eco-Conscious Holiday question: "What good gesture will you do this holiday season?" Wow her with your answer and you could win a sweet including Portico Home organic cotton slub towels; an autographed copy of Summer's book; Style, Naturally; a recycled PET and organic cotton bag from zoe&zac; at Payless; Modo Eco eyewear; and a signed copy of the latest edition of the beautiful and artful Above Magazine. We'll also feature the winner right here on TreeHugger.

How to enter the contest
To enter to win Summer's holiday giveaway, here's what to do:

1. Friend TreeHugger on Facebook and follow us on Twitter.
2. Send a tweet that answers the million-dollar question. (Ok, it's really more like $250-dollar question, which is the value of the swag.):

"What good gesture will you do this holiday season?"

3. Make sure your tweet uses the hashtag #goodgesture. You can send as many tweets as you want, and there's no need to call out @treehugger in your tweet. Just remember the hashtag so that we know you're trying to get our attention.

4. Sit back and relax. Or, if you feel like it, spread the good word about the contest.

5. The fine print. We can only ship to addresses in the U.S. & Canada. (Sorry, people living in other places. We still love you!) Contest winner will be announced on Monday, December 13. Get your entries in before 11:59 p.m. EST on December 10!

That's it, that's all you've got to do. So inspire us, impress us, and tug at our heart strings. We know this community is full of heroes, doing great things big and small. So go on do-gooders, bring on the good!
