Here's your chance to win! Up for grabs is one of these:
It's "Start Something That Matters" - the new book by Blake Mycoskie, founder and Chief Shoe Giver of TOMS. You can read my review and watch a video about the book on this previous post. For more info on the book, visit startsomethingthatmatters.com.
I think this book is really something special and will be a nice treat for someone who has a penchant for charity and desire to give back to the world. So to give this away, I first want to hear about some of the causes and needs that you're passionate about.
Basically, to win a copy of "Start Something That Matters" you need to name something that matters.
Here's how it'll work:
1. Leave a comment on this blog post.
2. Talk about a cause you support and leave some contact info for that charity or organization.
Entries must be in by January 1, 2012.
One charity I support is Soles4Souls. They're doing great things by collecting shoes and giving them to people in need all over the world. You can read more about them at giveshoes.org
My church does a big food drive every year for our local food bank. Our church's website is enidfirstassembly.com and info on the food bank can be found at hornofplentyenid.org
It can be as simple as that. The charity can be local, national or global. And you should feel free to include more details and stories. You can even include dorky photos - like one of you ringing the bells for the Salvation Army.
I'll leave that up to you.
