Do something for Japan, let me know what it is, and WIN A BOOK!
Right is Sendai, Japan now.
As many of you know, I've been living in Japan for the past year, and as such, this recent tragedy has really struck close to home for me.
As such, I've decided to host a Book Blogging for Japan CONTEST!!!! Right now, there will be 9 winners! To enter, all you have to do is help Japan. You do something to help Japan and send me an e-mail (zedster.tbb(at)gmail(dot)com) or post a comment letting me know what you did, and you're entered!
You can do something as simple as donate money, or, if you're poor like me, you can be creative.
Some EXAMPLES of things you can do:
-Thursday night I went to a meditation session where we meditated for the survivors.
-A kindergarten teacher is having her class collect marbles for when they're good. For each marble the kids earn, parents are donating a dollar.
-make a paper crane - there is a myth in Japan that for every thousand paper cranes you fold, you get a wish.
What can you win?
#1 - a box of books from me! Old books I've read, whatever fits in the box!
#2 - Hopeful Monsters: Stories by Hiromi Goto - donated by Arsenal Pulp Press!
#3-5 winners will win If You Follow Me: A Novel (P.S.) by Malena Watrous - donated by Harper Collins
#4-2 winners will receive books donated by Egmont UK.
#5-a SIGNED copy of Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen
If you've never heard of these books, they will be being featured in the blog over the next few days, so keep a look out!
The contest will end at a date to be determined in the future. I look forward to seeing what kinds of things you guys come up with to help.
You don't have to spread the word to be entered, but the more people helping Japan the better, so I'd really appreciate it if you would!
**If you're hosting a contest for Japan, I'd love to link it up, so please let me know! Also, please let me know if you'd like to donate a book to the contest.**
