A Little Update

I've been MIA from the blog for the past two weeks and I apologize.  Real life took over and I had to take a little break to keep everything afloat.  I'm sorry I left everyone hanging.

I had a wonderful giveaway scheduled to post today but after waking up to the news of the devastation in Japan, I decided to switch gears a bit.  Tragedies like this are horrific and it's hard to find anything positive in the images and stories you see in newspapers, on TV and online.  But then I hear about how people pull together to help and my faith in humanity is renewed.  So I'm hoping that the community of people who read AFOMFT can do a little bit too.

Starting Monday, I have seventeen amazing giveaways scheduled, and one will run each day until the end of March.  To earn five additional entries into any of the giveaways you want, all you need to do is to text REDCROSS to 90999 to donate $10 to help with relief efforts (the donation will be billed to your cell phone bill).

Easy right?  Just donate $10 using the method I described above and you can add five additional entries into every one of the giveaways starting Monday.  And that's not all.  Since I've been so busy and haven't drawn the winners of the last few giveaways on AFOMFT, you can also add the five entries to those as well (enter to win a $50 gift card to iTunes, a $50 gift card to Old Navy or a $50 gift card to Ann Taylor Loft HERE, the Timmy Time DVD HERE, three Nickelodeon DVDs HERE, the Who Said Coo? book HERE) before I draw the winners Sunday night.  When all is said and done, that $10 donation will basically give you 95 more chances to win one of 23 prizes.  Not too shabby!

Since there's no way for me to verify that the donations were actually made, this whole thing will be via the honor system.  Please be honest - abusing this opportunity would be really crappy and I'm sure you won't want the kind of karma lying about donating will get you.

Again, I'm sorry about the lack of blog posts over the last two weeks but I promise come Monday, I'll be back with a vengeance!  In the meantime, get to texting....
