Featured Prizes

September 2, 2009 at 3:14 pm

Thanks to Michelle Buonfiglio for a great guest blog yesterday. Don’t forget to tune in tomorrow for a special message from Jessica Scott, an  Army officer and aspiring author presently serving in Iraq. You think you have a hard time finding writing time–try living in a combat zone.

If you haven’t been to our prize page lately, you may have missed some of the great stuff that has been added there. We’re updating the page frequently as new prize donations come in–so be sure to check it out.

Don’t forget our special incentive running throughout the event–for every $100 you raise (up to $500) you will receive a free book from the list of $100 books on the prize page. Here’s how this prize works. You raise $100 and you choose the book you want from the list. As books are taken, we will mark them with **. We have multiple copies of many of the books, but there are a few that are one of a kind. So–the sooner you hit that $100 mark, the more choices you will have. Most of these books are donated by the author and autographed.

Another cool prize to shoot for is the $25 Starbucks card donated by Kate Rothwell. This gift card will go to the top money earner as of September 14. Kate wants our top dollar earner to have enough caffeine to get her or him through the second half of the event.

As always, if you have questions about anything UYS related, please contact us at: info@unleashyourstory.com
