Some holiday giving and some receiving

I'm not sure if any of you out there in book-blogger-land take time to peruse blogs of other natures, but one of my absolute favorites, always guaranteed to get a hysterical bout of giggling out of me, is Cake Wrecks. They have a huge following and tons of fans all around the country. And this season, they've created an awesome way to give back to different charities, via us...their readers.

Each day, at the bottom of their typical Cake Wreck post, there is a short description of an organization that could use a charitable donation. They are only asking ONE DOLLAR from every reader, each day. You can choose just one charity to donate to and only give a dollar. Or you can donate as much money as you want. Or you can donate every day, etc. So many ways to give to so many cool organizations. So far, the featured charities have included:

Doctors Without Borders
Heifer International
St. Jude Children's Research Hospital
Charity Water
Child's Play
Share Our Strength
Puffy Paws Kitty Have

You can go back and donate to any/all of those or you can just follow each day from now on. 14 days total. Go to the Cake Wrecks Charity Countdown page to check it out! And make you you just check out the blog occasionally's hilarious!

So that's my "giving" part of the post. My receiving part has to do with an awesome contest being hosted over at Bloggin' 'bout Books. Susan is giving away a book of your choice (with some restrictions of course) in honor of her 500th post! YAY for anniversaries and YAY for free books! SO head on over here and enter!
