First, some sucky news: After today, all t-shirt prices will increase to $25 per shirt, regardless of size or color. This is due to the site's "special" ending. Yes, this is a GIANT #epic #candylandfail for not noticing how long the special ran, but I'm new at this whole fundraising biz and alas, there's good news too. All t-shirt orders will now get 20 entries and all others have been raised to more entries, per activity, as well.
Yeah, it sucks. I suck. The t-shirt peeps suck. Suck suck suck. Moving on...
Just remember, you don't HAVE to enter this way. There's other ways to rock the contest. If you want a shirt at the original price, order TODAY before 4pm, and yours will be included in the 1st and last shipment of the affordable tees. After that, twenty-five buckaroos, but still, for a good cause.
Operation Stats since Tuesday's announcement:
Total donations: $85
Total shirts sold: 4
Total graphics made: 1
Total downloads: 1
WE CAN DO BETTER THAN THIS, FRIENDS!!! With all the amazing prizes, donate, give, create, buy, listen-whatever. Just do it! You can't go wrong here.
Also, I've decided to group the prizes, so if you win, you can pick! Liiikkkkeee, if you want to enter but have no manuscript, you can still win gift cards or books. It sounds more complicated than it is, but the new format is now visible on the contest post. You'll see what I mean.
Random Fact: Remember that effing plastic cup? While washing dishes, it stared at me with its stupid orange stripes and I kind of lost it and...well...
Thanks to everyone who's spreading the good word to help make this fundraiser/contest a success. If you're an agent/author/editor etc. who wants to donate, I'll be accepting them until the last day, July 31st.
To everyone else, keep Tweeting, FBooking, Blogging until your fingers hurt. This is about something bigger than us, and together we CAN make a difference. In fact, if you look at the new/original contest page, you'll see if you put this banner up on your page, linking to the contest page, there's the fifth way to enter the contest. If you need a better resolution of the image, just shoot me an email.
Give. Buy. Create. Listen. Promote. Total number of entries for posting: 5
