Winner, winner!

So over HERE, I posted about my blog plan for April and asked you all to leave a comment, suggesting an organization for me to donate my Amazon Associates proceeds to (for the month of April), in honor of "Earth Month." The winner is going to be getting a big prize!

I've had to switch up the blog plan a bit, as my "eco-friendly" product posts were not generating much interest (and I don't want to bore anyone!). Sooo...instead of donating just my proceeds from the Amazon Associates sales of those products, I'll be donating a set amount, plus those proceeds. Right now I think we're only at 91 cents, and I would really like the donation to at least be in the double digits! So the product posts will be more like one every few days, rather than 2 per day.

That doesn't change the winner's prize though! We had some awesome suggestions for earth-friendly charities, from The Nature Conservancy to the Conservation Fund, as well as many others, but a last day entry yesterday just sounded PERFECT for what this blog is about.

Brimful Curiosities
suggested Eco-Libris and that, my friends, is my choice!! All proceeds from Amazon Associates, as well as a set amount of money money money, will be going to Eco-Libris, an organization that plants trees in developing countries, to balance out those cut down to produce BOOKS. How perfect is that?! The trees are not at all expensive, so I think we can make a big difference with a small amount of money. To learn more about this awesome organization, go HERE.

Now, Brimful Curiosities, I'm sure you're wondering what your prize will's the list:

-The donation made to Eco-Libris will be made in YOUR name (yay!)
-a copy of Curious George Plants a Tree
-a copy of Big Earth, Little Me by Thom Wiley
-a copy of A Tree for Emmy by Mary Ann Rodman
-a copy of S is for Save the Planet: A How-to-be-Green Alphabet by Brad Herzog
-a copy of Beth's Job by Carole Roberts
-a copy of It's Earth Day! by Mercer Mayer
-and other items, yet to be determined...

How fun is that?! Can't wait to mail it out to you! I'll be in touch!

Hi Amanda,
Thanks! I'm so glad you appreciated my comment about Eco-Libris. It is a great charity. I will personally match whatever amount you decide to donate and offer my donation in celebration of Earth Day and National Library Week. By the way, Eco-Libris has its own blog and sometimes offers giveaways for eco-friendly books.
