Room to Read Fundraiser Giveaway


Quick! I want the first answer that comes to your mind when I ask this next question. Ready? 

What’s your favorite book?

What did you say? Did you answer with a childhood favorite? Maybe a classic that you fell in love with many years ago? Perhaps a recent bestseller that you can’t stop reading? It’s also possible that you are one of the millions of readers who can’t choose a favorite because there are just too many incredible books to choose from. It’s ok. There’s no right or wrong answer. 

Now, I want you to imagine being unable to answer that question because you’ve never read a book. Think about all of the wonders and stories you would have missed out on if you couldn’t read a book. Unfortunately, that is the case for over 500 million girls across the world. Of the 793 million illiterate people in the world, 67% are female. That is heartbreaking. Fortunately the incredible people at Room to Read are on a mission to change that and I’m asking for your help in supporting them.

From August 15th to September 15th I am participating in a Room to Read fundraiser giveaway. A prize pack of free eBooks is being given away by participating authors as a special thank you for your generosity in supporting this program. 

The eBook list includes (but is not limited to) the following books:

There is also a special prize pack being offered by author, J.R. Johansson that includes an autographed physical copy of Insomnia, a pill bottle of peanut butter M&M’s, several bookmarks and a post card. Bonus! It comes in an Insomnia-themed drawstring bag.

How do you enter the giveaway? It’s easy, just cycle the through the options on the PunchTab giveaway widget included with this post. A monetary donation to Room to Read in support of this program is required. You are awarded one entry for every $5 donated (so a $20 donation would give you 4 entries). You will receive a bonus entry for every other action in the widget that you complete.

Statistics about girls’ education and literacy:

In the developing world, 42% of girls are not enrolled in school and do not have access to education.

Of the 793 million illiterate people in the world, 67% are female.

The goal for this fundraiser is to raise $500. If we succeed in raising $500 we will be able to fully fund the education expenses for two girls for an entire year. Please help us reach our goal! 

Thank you and Happy Reading!
