2, Yes. TWO!!! Mockingjay copies giveaway!!!!

Critter at the Heart and Soul Ball, SCBWI LA

OK, I know Critter has had the majority of my blog time. But it's well deserved, don't cha think?

For those of you just tuning in . . . Critter is the bad-butt (family friendly word choice aptly chosen) flat-Stanley of children's literature blogs. He has been traveling since the fall of 2009 and is currently on his final leg of his travels. When his travels are complete, he will be auctioned off for the children of St. Jude.

Just an FYI, St. Jude runs on an operating budge of 1.5 million dollars a day, funded mostly by donations. ~gasp~ Yep. Makes me feel guilty ordering my daily Starbucks. I'm hoping Critter will be able to make a good dent in at least one day of operations. I need you to help me.

So . . . I figure . . . even if you don't have a ton of money to bid on such a fabulous piece of art, we are in a era of Twitter, Face book and blogs. If you help me get the word out re: Critter and his cause perhaps we, together, can find the people/groups who have the available funds and big-heartedness to make a generous donation to Critter's cause.

So . . . please, if you've got the time please follow Critter on his destination and let others know about his cause well. You can also leave comments on the blogs of people who are hosting Critter to show your support.

Currently Critter is with Cynthia Chapman Willlis in NJ.
Next he will visit Jill S. Alexander in Texas
From there he will go to Ellen Oh in DC
The Grand Finale will be in good ol' Canada with Angela Ackerman.
(insert Rocky theme song here) then the auction.

I want to thank everyone who has supported Critter thus far. Be sure to visit my side bar to see where Critter has been in the last year. Not to mention his brilliant creator, Ian Sands and his interview with the Texas Sweethearts.

Critter says he loves you! He thinks that you're all RaWk Stars.

In order to show my appreciation for those willing to help me get the word out, I'm holding a giveaway for 2 . . . that's right TWO copies of the last book of The Hunger Games Trilogy. The recently released Mockingjay.

I will give away two copies to two people who will comment on Cynthis'a blog re: Critter, blog, tweet, face book, be a fan on face book, or use any other social media to promote Critter. You have my permission to use info or pictures on my blog to explain critter's purpose.

you gain 1 entry for each attempt you make to promote critter, so please make sure to mention them all. I want you to get all the credit that you deserve, so in the comments, let me know how you helped me promote Critter.

WOW! What a great time Critter's been having. He's quite the player, isn't he? ;) I hope he raises tons of money for all those sweet kiddos at St.J's.

I'll be posting this link on twitter in about 2 minutes! :)

Aren't you jealous that you couldn't travel with Critter to all his exotic locales? I'm looking forward to the auction. Hope you, er, we can raise plenty of awareness and money for St. Judes.

Rena said...

Go Critter! Looking forward to see how the auction turns out.

Robyn Campbell said...

Yay Critter. I'm going to post this link on twitter. I popped over from Bish's blog. Good luck. I met Critter when my crit partner, Beth Revis won a visit. He's such a cool guy. And has a lot to say, too. hehe

An interesting idea...sort of like an Olympic flame journey for critters! Hope he ahs raised lots of funds for St Jude's (one of my favourite saints, mainly, because my family call me Jude!)(but I'm definitely no saint!) :):)
