Random Acts of Kindness - Giveaway Hop


Friday, February 17th is Random Acts of Kindness Day. Thanks to I am a Reader, Not a Writer, and Read for Your Future for hosting this simple-to-enter Giveaway Hop.

The dates for this hop are February 17th to 21st. This hop has a maximum of 2 entries per person so it should be easy to enter the giveaways on all the 150 participating blogs. The blogs with the ~in the linky at the end of this post have their contests up a little early, so check them out!

The prize we are giving away is not a book, but is book-related! It's $15 in Fandango Bucks on a Hunger Games gift card. (Of course, you can use it to view a non-book related movie, but we'd like you to go see The Hunger Games. Bring tissues.) I know some people think The Hunger Games is all about brutality, violence, and kids killing kids, but it's not that to me. It's about love, sacrifice, and unerring kindness. When I watch the trailers, I actually get choked up still, just thinking about Rue (especially when they salute, and the whistle plays... *reaches for tissues*)


In any case, you'll get a Hunger Games design on your Fandango card. :)









Of course, you don't have to pick Katniss for your card design. *fans self*

If you haven't heard of The Hunger Games... *blank look*
You can read this article from Publishers Weekly.
Don't forget to visit all the other blogs on the hop!
