A Giveaway

The fine fellows at CSN Stores have given me another $40 gift certificate to give away to one of you lovely readers for you to spend on anything from dining sets to air compressors (be still, my beating heart!). CSN Stores is a chain of over 200 online stores, and you can use this gift certificate at any one of them.

Here is how this is going to go down:

  • I am offering you up to six different ways to enter this giveaway, and they are as follows:

    1. Leave a comment on this post.
    2. Become a follower of this blog and leave a second comment telling me that you have done so. Yes, you can leave a second comment if you are already a follower! Clarification: You are officially a follower of when you have clicked on the button that says "follow" in the column on the right, and your little face shows up in the little grid of pictures.
    3. Leave a comment on my mum's blog. She gets discouraged when she thinks that no one is reading (don't we all?), so head over and leave a comment on any post you like on her blog. Then come back to this post and tell me about it.
    4. Finally, my friend and fellow-blogger Nancy is running a half marathon to raise money to build a well in the Central African Republic. If you made a donation to Nancy's campaign, feel free to leave three more comments (that's three more entries!) on this post. Your donation can be as small as $1, but the good news is that it can be as big as you like! :)

  • Please make sure your email address is easy to find on your page or profile, and include it in your comment if not.
  • The giveaway is open to anyone in the US and Canada (sorry, everyone else!).
  • I will be announcing the winner one week from today, on Monday, 18 October.


Now go forth and win, win, win!

  18. And is it really bad if I leave three comments for donating to my own campaign?

    ReplyDelete
  19. I really want to help my mom fix up her house but have no money to do so. Just as an example, the carpet in her house is like 40 years old. I'm not even kidding. So I think that if I won I would get something cute to go in my mom's kitchen. I don't know what yet...but I'm sure I could find something.

  20. This is my last comment for donating to my own campaign.

    Everyone else should donate, too! Then you get to leave THREE comments here, and who wouldn't want to do that?

    ReplyDelete
  21. Hehehe...I just left a comment on your mom's blog, too. A little over-zealous to do everything? I dunno. Someone had to, right? :D

  22. Look at the way my daughter is monopolizing your comments! I visited your mom's blog and commented there just for fun. Love from Nancy's mom.

  23. Oooh, an air compressor!
    I might chose something else but it will be equally exciting:)
