Back when I started writing, I noticed authors hosting holiday giveaways, and I wanted to take part–but I wanted to do something a little different. The first year I posted The 12 Days Of Giving, I was living in an RV with my family as we traveled around North America, and it was a great way for me to give financially to a great charity that a reader suggested. I held the event for three holiday seasons in a row…
…and then I fell victim to the very thing I was trying to avoid. I got too busy with online time, working—life in general, maybe, but bottom-line: Too Busy.
I’ve made a commitment to adjust my priorities, and so we’re traveling back to my roots. 😉 We’re going to once again celebrate the 12 Days of Giving, and while I’ve made a few changes, for the most part, the focus is the same.
In the spirit of the holidays, I want to give something back. To you, my readers, but also to others.
Here’s the deal. Every day for the next 12 days, I’m going to challenge you to ‘give’. Not necessarily financially, because, yeah, I know that’s tough at times. But we really are fortunate to enjoy many good things. 2015 has been an amazing year for me, with challenges but also rewards. I want to finish it off right, and I encourage you to join me.
There will be a few gifts up for grabs along the way but the BIG gift is this: $100 donated to the charity of your choice. At the end of the 12 days time I’ll pick 10 commenters from this thread and their suggested organization will get $100. If you want to add a link to your organization in the comments, please feel free to do that.
In order to qualify for the $100 donation, you don’t have to meet the challenges for the 12 coming days– those are strictly for fun and encouragement, although I hope you do join in and share some love. To be entered, simply add your name to this comment list along with the name of the organization you’d like the money to go to if you are one of the ten selected. This isn’t really a contest:
Basically consider this as me asking you for suggestions for great places to support.
This is an international opportunity- I don’t care where you live (if it’s legal for you to participate yada yada yada…) as long as I can somehow support the organization you suggest.
I hope you will join me in this celebration of giving.
And come back tomorrow for the first challenge.
(Fine fine print: this blog posts to Amazon and GoodReads. We’ll be cross posting to FB as well, but you MUST have your name & charity on the actual post on my blog to be eligible for me to send to your charity of choice.)
