Well, that could be misleading. No, I’m not giving away plane tickets. I am, however, giving away one of these:
Oh my word. Aren’t they CUTE? And the cool thing? You don’t have to get one that says Grace or Ben. You could get…
Or the name of someone you actually know or even gave birth to! You can pick any name in all the world! My friend Jenny, of Initial Designs, is offering one of these SWEET personalized quilted backpacks to one lucky winner.
A little background on Jenny. She’s the younger of two beautiful sisters. Her older sister, Jodie, and I met at Cedarville College and became dear friends. Jodie was one of four bridesmaids in my wedding back in the day. Jodie and Jenny are both married to great guys and each have 2 little blond cuties–a boy and a girl. Jenny lives not-too-far from me, and last summer, I snuck over to her house and surprised Jodie who I hadn’t seen in ages. Too fun!
Jenny’s wonderful and talented, and you’d be CRAZY not to enter this give-away.
Now, here’s the catch:
As you might know, my family is on a Quest of Gargantuan Proportions. We thought it might be fun to try to visit 52 Zoos in 52 Weeks. We thought it’d be even more fun if we took a ginormous leap of faith and did it all with very little money, no book advance, and without going into a cent of debt.
If you’ve been following our story, you know that God has taken us downtothewire a bazillion times, and each time He provides in a HUGE way.
Now. My human mind is telling me that there’s no way He can pull off the rest of this thing. We have about 20 zoos to go. In just over 2 months. No money earmarked for Zoo Trips. Just lots of hope, trust and prayer. On paper, it will be IMPOSSIBLE to complete our challenge.
But my God specializes in the impossible.
We’ve spent so little money on these trips that it’s really just mind-boggling. But one leg of our trip will involve flying out to the West Coast. Five plane tickets. Eek.
So, here’s our plan. We’re selling ad space on our Zoo Site: www.52zoos.com. For $4/week, you can advertise your business for 52 weeks. (We sell 6 spots, and we’ll just about have enough to fly ourselves to Cali and back.) More people are checking out the site every day, and by the time the books (yes, bookS) come out, there’ll be oodles of people seeing your ad.
So, to enter the contest for the SWEET personalized-with-any-name-you-can-think-of quilted backpack, here’s what you need to do (2 things):
2. Go to our 52 Zoos site and tell me something you like about it OR something you’d like to see added to it.
AND if you want to enter a 2nd comment (Do this separately. As in, actually enter another comment entirely.):
3. Spread the word about the ad space available at http://www.52zoos.com by posting about it on Twitter or Facebook (or e-mail some friends) and tell me you did it.
And that’s it. I know this is going to confuse some of you sweet people. I’m ready for you. On Friday, I’ll draw a lucky winner!
And if you’re looking to advertise for just a month or two, I have 2 ad spaces available to the right for $20/month.
Happy Wednesday! And Good Luck!
