A quick reminder! Last few hours to help me raise funds for Book Aid

Posted on | March 7, 2012 | Comments Off

You’ve just got a few hours left to help me raise funds for Book Aid International

“Lines close” at 9 pm tonight (UK time), and the winner of the original illustration by Katie Cleminson, plus the lucky folk who get signed books from her, or signed prints from Chris Haughton will be announced shortly there after.

What am I on about, you say?

To celebrate World Book Day I set you a challenge:

Guess how many books I had in my house on World Book Day.

The person who guesses nearest the mark wins Katie’s illustration above, and 7 others chosen at random get the signed books and prints. To make a guess, leave a comment ON THE ORIGINAL POST (I’ve disabled comments on this post).

How does this game raise money for Book Aid? Whilst I can’t require you to make a donation, I can strongly urge you to do so. As it happens, everyone who has commented so far has also donated, even though they didn’t have to!

You can make a secure donation via my Just Giving site: http://www.justgiving.com/Zoe-Toft.

International friends! My Just Giving site is totally secure and you can donate via PayPal. Please don’t be put off by the fact that payments appear in £(Sterling) – this will just be converted into your local currency on your bank statement, and there aren’t any currency charges or anything like that. I’m happy to post the illustration and other prizes securely worldwide, so there’s nothing to stop you taking part, I hope :-)

Yes, I’ve reached my target, but don’t let that stop you! I’m now aiming for £500 in fundraising. I’m sure you can help! Even a donation of £1 is much appreciated.

So… if ever you’ve enjoyed a post of mine, or found the tweets I share useful, please consider making a donation to Book Aid. And then do come back and try your luck with my books!

Thankyou!
