The chance to help someone so deserving AND be in the running to win cool stuff?
Life is good, I’m telling you.
The scoopage is this:
C.J. Redwine, my wonderful friend, agentmate and fellow Pixie Chick (our 2008 GH class), is a force of nature. She hosts a hysterical blog (I just blogged there with the famous Were-Llama), teaches writers how to write rockin’ queries and is a rockin’ writer in her own right. But that’s just C.J. in her professional life.
In her personal life, she and her wonderful husband (who is a super talented cupcake baker LIKE WHOA) have been trying to adopt an orphaned little girl from China for the last five years. With delay after delay, they are finally on the verge of bringing her home! But… with delays come expense hikes and new red tape and they now need an additional $8,000 to bring their daughter home at last. You can read about C.J.’s journey here. If this doesn’t inspire you, I don’t know what will.
So many of us want to help bring their family together! So C.J. created the fabulous idea of Skip a Starbucks Day – where instead of getting your usual Starbucks, you could donate that $5 to the wonderful adoption fund. But C.J. is all about paying it forward (even though adopting a child is the ULTIMATE paying it forward already!), so donors will also be in the running to win fabulous prizes too!
You could win an ARC of Rachel Hawkins’ DEMONGLASS…
You could win an ARC of Bree Despain’s THE LOST SAINT…
You could win the Grand Prize Made of Awesome…
Plus TONS (oodles and scads and loads) of other fabulous prizes. But wait, there’s more! You can even win COOL CINDY GEAR and an ARC from me!
For my contribution, I’ll be offering up:
A mini TCS glass slipper…
A cool glass slipper bookmark…
And (drum roll, please)… an ARC of the upcoming CINDY ON A MISSION (the sequel to THE CINDERELLA SOCIETY) when ARC’s go out in early 2011!
Here’s what you need to do to help make a difference for one very deserving family:
1) Go here and read the full story. Seriously, it is amazing.
2) Click on the Donate button in the upper right corner
3) Donate at least $5 (though you’re always welcome to donate more – I did!)
4) Come back here and comment below by Thursday, August 26th to let me know you donated and hope to win the extra special Cindy prize pack. (C.J. will double check my winner against her donation list, just so’s you knows.)
With your help, we can give a little girl a real home for the first time in her life. Now that’s making a difference.
