Today we are feeling charitable. Very charitable. Right now is the start of our first giveaway during the Blogathon. You guys and gals are competing for some very cool goodies.
How might one win these great freebies?
Post a comment!
For the next 24 hours (6 PM PST 7/25/09 – 6:00 PM 7/26/09) when you comment on this blog, it counts as an entry. You don’t need to spam the post with crazy comments so please keep them on topic. Replying to other commentors is encouraged, so don’t think you can’t start up a nice little Harry Potter conversation. Also, feel free to get creative with your posts.
Here’s the twist. Want more entires? DONATE! Obviously we are blogging like crazy to help raise money for our charity, Reading is Fundamental, so when you donate to our charity that counts as an entry.
And like any crazy infomercial, they always follow up the good stuff with “but WAIT! There’s MORE!” If, for example, you donate $1.00 to our cause… that donation won’t count as 1 entry, it will count as 10. See how we did that? We knocked off the last 0, and counted the rest as entries.$2.00 will get you 20 entries, and $3.00 will get you 30.. so on and so on and so on. Hell, if you want to donate $100.00, that gets you one THOUSAND entries lol
Oh, I should probably add that we are giving prizes to TWO people, not just ONE, so competition is going to be fierce.
And now… I present to you the PRIZES:
First Place wins two items: Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince promo poster and a slap wrist bracelet for the official video game that Electronic Arts put out. Cute thing is that the bracelet are in Gryffindor colors.
Runner Up wins one item: Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince promo poster.
The contest is only available to people who live in the CONTINENTAL United States. Sorry Hawaii and Alaska, it costs too much to ship there. Sorry to all of the other countries too.
Winners will be announced Monday morning at 11:00 AM PST so please check back then to see if you were one of the lucky ones. Winners will need to contact us within 48 hours via email (that is provided on our site) with appropriate mailing information.
So, spread the word, post away, and help out our charity!
