Win a Set of Signed J.K. Rowling Books!
August 01, 2010, 10:52 PM
Hey everyone: a quick reminder that the books that J.K. Rowling donated to the HP Alliance's "Helping Haiti Heal" effort are back up for a drawing, and you can win them! This time the proceeds will benefit the scholarship foundation set up by the Association of Electrical Contractors for New York City, and Kamp Kiwanis, a camp for underprivileged and ill children. A great cause, a great prize! One ticket is $40, or you can get three for $100. Go here to enter!
It felt like a lot of money, but I guess $40 going to a good charity is money well-spent. And if I win… that set of books is priceless! I want to buy tickets for my whole family but that’s going overboard.
Purchased one ticket… Wish I could have contributed more…. But… Always but.
Hope the kids enjoy their camp… Money well spent. Well said Trillian.
Good luck to all.
“There is currently no end-date for this drive; that will be announced in due course.” So, we dont know when the drawing will be yet?
I’d love these books. Very special set. Congrats to the AEC for NYC for winning, and for redonating!
And this is off topic but, does anyone know (I might just be failing to remember), has Jo’s website changed slightly? I feel like before, when you looked at the mysterious door, it showed today’s date and then you could open the door and see the family tree, and there simply was no Do Not Disturb sign anymore. Now it starts out in December, and you have to time-travel forward in time, and then you do get the Do Not Disturb sign. I could just be going crazy… maybe it’s always been like that… but if it hasn’t…??? I’d like to get some confirmation before I get too excited. :)
