Good morning A4WW!
How’s everyone adjusting to Daylight Savings Time? For me, it’s a slow transition, encouraged on by lots of Columbian coffee and maybe a nap or two until I somehow manage to adjust the good ol’ body-clock.
It’s been brought to my attention that, as our page grows, it’s becoming harder to locate the ABOUT page in the ever-expanding header. (Just encase you’re wondering : it’s in the top right) … but for the sake of simplicity, I’m including a direct link here as well :
On the ABOUT page you can find all the need-to-knows about donating, what particular donations get you and the like. Hopefully this helps.
Also, this was a big shopping weekend for me. Part of the package is the Kindle, obviously, but in order to encourage high bids I want to make it look as adorable and swoon-worthy as possible. Everyone likes to open to a lovely package — right?
Having been to the auction myself last year … and having bid (and won) a few items, I know the prettiest packages garner the most interest from the passing crowds. People get excited about pretty — common knowledge. I won’t tell you what I’ve come up with … it will be a surprise … but stay tuned for pictures!
Okay, and one more thing. Some donors ask what more they can do. The first thing, as I’ve mentioned before, is to spread the word. Our community tends to be a pretty tight-knit one, so if you have other author buddies you can call upon, that is MUCH appreciated.
The other thing is more recent …
If any individuals/companies have any interest in making cash or gift donations that is also MUCH appreciated. We’ve already received a very generous gift card to Amazon, but we’re open to more of any donation value at all — gift cards are never combined, so if you make a donation of that, you get a special one with the image of your choice. Also, anything Kindle or book-related. Maybe you have a stack of book-marks, or some left over swag from a promotion or book signing … maybe you’re crafty and make covers for Kindle and would like to donate. I’m truly wide open.
I know it’s a lot to ask, but if anyone is interested in doing a little something more, I’d thought I would put it out there.
Thanks all and have the day you have!
