Happy Holidays!

Tomorrow, the illustrious author (and my friend), Heather Long, will begin her second annual Holiday Giveaway.  This is a great way to get free books, gift certificates and more as Christmas presents for loved ones.  The Giveaway happens every day from November 26 (tomorrow) to December 21 so you won’t want to miss a day.  Bookmark Heather’s site now and make sure you check it every morning.  You may just find the perfect gift!

So what is the Daily Dose Holiday Giveaway and how does it work?

Every holiday season, I ask myself what I can do or how I can give to others. It has been a tough year for many families whether it is our soldiers fighting overseas, their families waiting at home, death in the families, divorces, oil spills in the Gulf, flooding in Nashville, natural disasters all around the world or struggling economic hard times.
For example, my sister-in-law was just laid off from her job after eight years of employment. She’s a single mom with two kids. Her youngest is autistic and next year he’ll be entering a specialized school that costs upwards of $15,000 per year.  This is going to be a hard holiday season for her.

We are all familiar with the choke of these times and how they affect the people around us.  Last year at the Daily Dose, I invited a number of authors to participate in giving back.

Where did the idea come from?

Years ago, one of our local radio stations used to have write ins for people to nominate families for Christmas or

holiday gift certificates. Nominated families or individuals included those who really were not going to have much to celebrate because they couldn’t afford gifts or decorations or a big Christmas meal.

How long will it run?

Beginning November 26 and lasting until December 21, the Daily Dose will host a holiday give away post featuring the item and author who is giving it away. To enter, all someone has to do is nominate the person they want to send the gift to and post a short reason why. If that person wins, then the gift will be sent to the recipient with a note

wishing them a happy holiday season signed from the author giving it away, the Daily Dose and of course the person who entered them.

In addition to these giveaways, I am going to be including gift certificates and other incentive giveaways to those who nominate.
