I have a great charity event that I’m participating in and wanted to share it with you all.
Here’s a message from the organizer of this event, author C. L. Cannon:
Hello, blog hoppers! Welcome to our Back To School Charity Raffle and Blog Hop! We’ll be hopping this week to support a generous cause! Indie Authors Care and Amanda’s Book Nook For All Audiences is sponsoring this Charity event, and all proceeds will be going directly to The Internation Rescue Committee, specifically the education department!
We’ll be raffling off an 8” Kindle Fire HD, a $50 Amazon gift card, and an ebook library filled with over thirty books! Raffle winners will be drawn September 6th at 3 PM EST.
For a chance to win any of these prizes, all you have to do is purchase at least one raffle ticket. Of course, your odds of winning do go up exponentially with each ticket you purchase! Good news for you, raffle tickets are being sold at a discount all week long during the blog hop!
During the blog hop, tickets will be $1 each. After the blog hop, tickets will increase to $3 each.
We also have some bulk discounts.
During the blog hop, you may pay $10 and get 11 tickets, $20 and get 22 tickets, or $50 and get 60 tickets.
After the blog hop, you may pay $15 and get 6 tickets, $30 and get 12 tickets, or $60 and get 25 tickets.
What are we hoping to do with these donations?
We are hoping to raise at least $800. There are many ways we can spend this money. Option one is to spend it to purchase school supplies for 40 children. Option 2 is to use the money to send 14 kids to school for a year. Option 3 is to use it for one donation package each which would amount to sending 3 kids to school for a year, one school supply kit, one teddy bear and creativity kit, pay for one new classroom, pay for school clothes for a child, teaching supplies, and a safe environment.
So, you see, we can change the world together and ensure that these students around the world have all the tools they need to get a quality education in a safe environment with qualified teachers.
Tickets will be sold via Google Form to keep accurate records of all transactions. No purchase necessary to participate, though odds of winning are greater when multiple tickets are purchased. If you would like to submit one free entry, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject “Raffle Mail Entry.”

The charity event will take place here.
I’m happy to announce I’ll be taking over a spot on Saturday, September 2 at 12 noon EST (11 a.m. CST/9 a.m. PST). During that time, I’ll be doing some giveaways for my book Gnarled Bones and Other Stories and swag and also revealing the first teasers for my upcoming book, The Order of Actaeon (Waxwood Series: Book 1). I’ll also be revealing a fall giveaway I’ll be doing in September. So join me for a HEAD start on getting your hands on all those goodies!
Here’s the next stop on the blog hop.
