Tuesday Blog Party- Enter to Win!

 

Tuesday Blog Party Blog Post Header

From now until May 12th, I am holding this give-away to help benefit the Tuesday Fiona Whitt Foundation.
Tuesday was the beautiful twin daughter of my dear friend JK who bravely fought and sadly lost her 8 month battle with stage 4 neuroblastoma in January of this year.
My friends and I from Jess' multiples group have decided to put together an annual blog party to help raise funds to fight pediatric cancer, specifically neuroblastoma, as it is the least funded of ALL cancers yet one of the most fatal. A tragedy if you ask me. We CAN make a difference.

I am giving away something near and dear to my heart. A book that I have spent countless hours natgeo scanning over and plotting future adventures with, the National Geographic Guide to the National Parks of the United States, This book is awesome. It is the best resource for planning a trip to a National Park and a great read. Of course the book I will be giving away is the all new and improved 6th edition and not my tattered old thing.

In addition to the book I will also give away a ONE YEAR SUBSCRIPTION to the National Geographic Magazine of your choice whether it be National Geographic, NG Traveler (my personal fav), NG Adventurer (my other personal fav) , NG Kids, or the all new NG Little Kids. Check them all out here.

How do you enter to win such fabulous prizes? All you have to do is donate $1 to the Tuesday Fiona Whitt Foundation. That's it. A buck. If you want to donate $5 you will get 5 entries. If you follow my blog (remind me in the comments section) or start following me (let me know in comments) I will give you another entry. But you have to donate to the fundraiser to get the extra entry. Twitter about the Tuesday Blog Party and I will give you 2 entries. Post about my giveaway and you get 3 more.



Also, head on over to the Tuesday Blog Party to see what other fantastic items are being auctioned off by clicking the image below

There are lots of great auctions going on and all it costs is one dollar to enter each one.
If you would like to make one donation, instead of many individual donations, please feel free to donate however is easiest for you.
If you end up donating $10, but only find 5 auctions you are interested in, you can use those additional dollars as additional entries :)

Thank you so much for supporting a great cause and remember to have fun!
Good luck!

I enjoy your blog, and really admire what you're doing. Where is the link for contributions? It's been a long day, and it's probably very obvious.

Sharlene said...

Mudslide Mamma- I am totally lame when it comes to html so while I think my link is working, it is possible that it isn't. Go directly to http://fundraiserblog.blogspot.com/ and click the icon in the post that says "click her to donate". Once you donate feel free to peruse the different sites and pick where you want to "spend" your dollars by letting the blogs know how many entrie syou want for each contest in the comments section. Hope this makes sense!
