The Getaway Giveaway!!!

We are $2500 from having all we need to travel on our first trip, which is quite possibly just a month or so away!  So, it's time for another giveaway!

We're bringing home TWO kids, so how about TWO vacations, to your choice of TWO homes!!!

And because waiting is no fun, we're going to stagger the drawings for winners!  As soon as we reach $1000 in entries, we'll draw the first winner, and at the end of the giveaway, we'll draw the second winner!  (All entries from the first drawing will count toward the second drawing, so give early to make sure you don't miss TWO chances at winning!)

Here's how the entries will be added:

Sharing on facebook/twitter/blogs -- 1 entry per day
Up to $20 - 1 entry/$4 donated
$21-$50 - 1 entry/$3 donated
$51-$99 - 1 entry/$2 donated
$100+ - 1 entry/$1 donated

For those of you who don't like math, that's 2 entries for a $10 donation, 5 entries for a $20 donation (or 7 entries for a $21 donation!), 16 entries for a $50 donation (or 26 entries for a $52 donation), and so on.  The more you give, the better your odds, but even if you are only able to share, please tell me so I can add your entries!  

Donations can be made directly to our grant, so the donation IS tax-deductible.  In order for your donation to credit to the giveaway, you MUST email your Paypal receipt to me.  The giveaway is running from NOW through Monday, October 15 at 10:00 Eastern, so you have just over 3 weeks to donate, share, and help us raise the money for our plane tickets!

Oh, what's that?  You wanted to know more about the houses?  Well, why didn't you ask before?!  You'll have four nights at your choice of either a 3 bedroom/4 bathroom cabin or 2 bedroom/2 bathroom chalet, with hot tubs, pool tables, Xbox with Kinect, and only 10 minutes from Dollywood and everything else in Pigeon Forge, TN!  Slideshows for the homes are on the right side of the blog, under our grant button.

Oh, and if we hit our goal of $2,500, everyone who donates or shares will be entered to win a $100 Amazon gift card!  Just in time to do some Christmas shopping!
