Hello!!  I wanted to take a few moments to invite you to check out the first contest conducted exclusively for my fans at  Throughout the website you’ll see a “Thanksgiving with Raq-C” banner like the one above.  Click on it to read what the contest is about and enter yourself or someone you think is deserving or in need of a small but meaningful gesture this Thanksgiving.  At this time I would like to take a moment to send a BIG, BIG Thank You – to my friends (who are more like an extended family to me) at “Flowers and Things” in Glendale and “Famous Cupcakes” in N. Hollywood for coming on board this project with me!  Thank you for seeing my vision and helping me ensure a happy and blessed Thanksgiving for not one but two lucky families.

So don’t wait….click on the “Thanksgiving with Raq-C” banner today!  Thanks for the continued support L.A.!  You guys are my heart!

Besitos and all my love,


P.S.  So far we have had an amazing response to the “Thanksgiving with Raq-C” contest.  Wow, we have received some incredibly touching emails.  Because of the overwhelming response, last week we decided that there is no way we could choose just one family – so we all agreed to help 2 families!!

There’s stil time, keep the emails coming!  The winning families will be contacted by phone the weekend before Thanksgiving with the good news.
