Welcome back! We're returning from our little hiatus to bring you Phase 2 of the Fundraiser for Sandi Rog. We're closing in on our Christmas Eve deadline and really hope we'll be able to meet our fundraising goal. Will you help us?
This time we're raffling off gift cards and a brand new e-reader--winner's choice of a Kindle Fire or a Nook Color! The rules this time around are slightly different, though, so read on to find out how it all works.
Step 1: Donate through the GiveForward.com widget in the sidebar. Every $2 (yes, just $2!) you donate gets you a ticket to raffle. DO NOT donate anonymously or hide your donation amount if you want to be entered in the drawing, and MAKE SURE your email address is on your entry so we can contact you through GiveForward.com. In terms of raffle tickets, everyone is starting from zero, meaning you
must donate again to be entered into the gift card and e-reader
drawings, even if you donated for the raffle baskets.
Step 2. Watch the blog for winners! That's right, this time around you don't have to enter your tickets for the drawing. EVERYONE who donates will be entered. We'll pull a winner Tuesday night and Thursday night for gift cards, and Saturday night for the e-reader.
It's that simple! But, to reach our goal, we really need to get the word out to people who haven't already donated. Would you be willing to send out an email to friends and family to let them know about the fundraiser? Or mention it on your Facebook or Twitter? Please spread the word in whatever ways you're comfortable doing so.
And if you work for a national store or restaurant that would be willing to donate a $50 or $100 gift card for the raffle, please email Alison at firstname.lastname@example.org to let me know. I'd be happy to talk to a manager about the details of the fundraiser and the exposure they'll receive for donating.
Alrighty, folks--let's knock this one out of the park! Ready...set...donate!
