For the past couple of years, I've been participating in a wonderful Mother's Day event organized my fellow romance author, Melissa McClone. Each Mother's Day, Melissa collects donations, books and swag to create tote bags stuffed with goodies for The Fisher House. It's a wonderful organization that provides military families a place to stay while a loved one is receiving medical treatment.
Thirty Thirty-One thermal tote bags were filled (so full they couldn’t be zipped!) Inside recipients received romance novels, a goodie bag filled with author swag (a variety of items from bookmarks, pens, mirrors, purses, post-it notes, luggage tags, stickers, bracelets, etc.), a goodie bag filled with pampering items (shower puffy, tissue, hair band, comb, footie socks, and manicure set), a small bag with chocolate and a cone of flavored popcorn!
The following authors participated by sponsoring totes and/or donating books and/or donating swag. Some did all three:
It was all made possible, organized and delivered by the wonderful Melissa McClone.
A Chance for you to win!
And now Melissa has purchased an extra Thirty-One Thermal Tote and used leftover swag (and a few extras to make reader prizes. There’s one grand prize, a second place prize, and two runner-up prizes.
