For every commenter on this post between now and March 27th 2010, I will donate $1.00 to my local library: Aldine Public Library, up to an amount of $50.00.
How easy could it be? You comment, I cough up the money, the library gets a gift! If you don’t know what to say in your comment, “I love libraries” will do.
Note that my pledge is “per commenter”—so if a single person leaves 50 comments, that still only counts once! But you can do more by spreading the word ... please link to this post, tweet about it, and send your friends here so they can comment and raise more money.
If you’re moved to make a flat-fee donation to your library, or to start your own challenge, you are quite welcome, and please leave that information in the comments.
For a complete list of participating bloggers (and to visit other sites where you can help libraries just by leaving a comment!) visit the writerjenn blog at http://writerjenn.livejournal.com/
Bonus: So you don’t walk away without something if you tweet about this and post the link with your comment I will enter you in drawing and you win a book of your choice from the list below. I have randomly picked a few books off my shelf:
One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel García Márquez
