I'm Needy (But I'm Also A Giver!)

I'm still in need of donations for the 3 Day Cancer walk I'm doing in October in Atlanta with Team Parallel Heat. It's a great event for a great cause. Not to mention a great team!

Like Marley, I want to give you some incentive to donate, so I'm running a contest. Donating to my walk by next Monday, Sept. 25th will enter you in a drawing for one of the following HARDCOVER books:

Three dynamite reads!

Here's my donation page:

The Rules:
1. Donations must be a minimum of $10. Donating $20 will enter you twice, $30 three times, etc.
2. If you've donated before, thanks, but it doesn't count for this contest. I know, I know, it's not fair. Would you rather walk the 60 miles yourself? 'Cause that can be arranged...
3. Since there are three books, there will be a 1st, 2nd and 3rd prize. First place gets their choice of the books, second can pick from the two remaining and third gets what's left.
4. If you enter more than once with a donation of more than $10, you can win more than once. So technically, if only one person donates $30, they win all three books.
5. Once you donate, the site keeps track of amounts and dates donated, so you don't have to do anything else.

Email me at if you have any questions. Please feel free to post info about this contest or Marley's on your blog or website!

Kristen, I just wanted to say that from a two time cancer survivor and knowing many others with cancer who are fighting for their lives, we appreciate you very much. Thank you Kristen for such a kind, loving, heart.

I'm so proud of you for doing this walk.
With or without the contest incentive of free books...I'm in.
Because I'm a giver, too!

I'll even be your long distance cheerleader. I know by day'll probably need one. :)
Just go one step at a time until you're done. ;)
