That's the total we raised for the American Red Cross to help those folks ravaged by tornadoes in Oklahoma!
Seriously! Of course, that doesn't count all of you who had donated and forgot to send your receipts to me. I can only imagine what that number would be.
Thank you to everyone who participated! Your donations, buying my books so I'd donate $1 and spreading the word definitely made a difference.
As for our winner? Congratulations to...
She's already been notified and is looking forward to receiving her swag bag full of signed books. Thank you, Kari, for your donation and your buys!
Although this little "fundraiser" is over, please don't hesitate to make a donation to the Red Cross. On the last day of my event, a tornado hit even closer to my Dad's home, as well as close to authors I know in the OKC and Tulsa areas. A blogger and my favorite book pimp had damage from bad weather in Illinois. Tornadoes aren't discriminatory anymore either - no longer targeting just Tornado Alley. There have been warnings in my hometown in Northern Virginia and other parts of the DC and Eastern Seaboard area this week. Tornado season technically winds down this month (as if Mother Nature follows the calendar this year), but hurricane season is gearing up and we've already had our first named storm. The Red Cross is going to need every bit of help they can get. So please consider donating as much and as often as you can.
