Scares that Care is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization that provides assistance for families dealing with childhood illness, burns, or breast cancer. It is truly a wonderful group of people doing some great work. I know a few people involved with the organization. One of them, author Brian Keene, is running an online telethon of sorts later this week. They will be broadcasting live for 24 hours straight, with the goal being to raise at least $10,000 for Scares that Care. You can tune in to the shenanigans here.
I’d really like to help them hit that goal so here’s the deal. I’m going to run a little giveaway contest in conjunction with their fundraising efforts. The prize? A custom fire kit made by yours truly. It will include, at the minimum:
–A ferro rod and striker
–Wet Fire Cubes
–Char cloth and a tin for making more
–Other homemade fire starters
–Other goodies I find and toss in.
–All contained in a nice belt pouch.
–Because it is me, I’ll probably toss in a book or two as well.
Here’s how to win. Visit the Scares that Care website and send them a donation. Take a screenshot that shows the donation. Feel free to black out or otherwise obscure any personal information. All I need to see is your name and proof you donated something. Any amount is acceptable. Donate any time between now and Saturday night (11:59PM Central, Jan 28). Send me the screenshot via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) no later than Monday, Jan 30, 12:00 noon. I’ll draw one winner at random from all qualifying entries. Winner will be contacted via email. Good luck!
