Happy New Year 2012 Giveaway Hop (Ends 1/3) WW

Welcome to the Happy New Year 2012 Giveaway Hop. 

December 30th to January 3rd
Thanks to Kathy from I Am a Reader, Not a Writer for hosting.
Thanks to Babs from Babs Book Bistro for co-hosting. 

I am doing something a little different this time. You know me.  I get bored easily.  I know that I had a great response when I did a charity giveaway, so I am doing that again this time with just a little twist.  

Have you ever heard of Books for Africa?  I have heard of them before. Here is what their website states:

Books For Africa. A simple name for an organization with a simple mission. We collect, sort, ship, and distribute books to children in Africa. Our goal: to end the book famine in Africa.
Books For Africa is the world’s largest shipper of donated books to the African continent. Since 1988, Books For Africa has shipped over 24 million high-quality text and library books to children and adults in 46 African countries. Millions more are needed.
It costs $9,800 to send a sea container to most major sea ports of books and computers to Africa. Your donation will enable Books For Africa to send even more books to children in Africa who are hungry to read, hungry to learn.

I checked them out, and they are a responsible organization.  There is proof on their site as well as charity ranking sites like Charity Naviagator.  So I feel like donations will be going where they need to go if I send money there.

So, for this giveaway, I will make a one-time $10 donation to Books for Africa in the winner's name (or any name you designate).  In addition to that, I will be letting that winner choose any book from Book Depository up to $10.

Sounds like a good deal, eh?  It is an international giveaway, and it will end 9 P.M. Pacific Time on January 3.  All you need to do is fill out the rafflecopter form below and then be sure to go on to the other blogs in the giveaway to win more prizes!

  9. Thanks for this great giveaway. The Rafflecopter form is continually processing my answer, but it's not going through. I've tried at least 5 times and it's not working, so I can't enter:( I'm currently entering giveaways on Rafflecopters on other sites and they're working. I'm not sure what the problem is. Thanks once again.

    Happy New Year!
