{Giveaway} Donors

September 5, 2011

This giveaway was such a favorite of mine – and we were able to fund 2 great school projects – that we’re doing it again!

With all the hype on Back-to-School (The Good Stuff Guide included!), it’s easy to forget the thousands of adorables who won’t be bringing new crayons, markers, and backpacks to school.

So today our “winners” are going to be those adorables.

I need you to meet

Donors is a highly-rated 501(c)(3) Not-for-profit which pairs helpful people with needy classrooms.  You can find classrooms to help by a specific subject area, by state (even by city), or by urgency of need.


The Good Stuff Guide will donate $50 + $1 for every comment entered by Tuesday, September 13th for a maximum of $200 to  The “winner” gets to choose the state where the money will be sent, and has the option to choose the specific classroom (high poverty classrooms only please).  UPDATE: I will extend this to Friday, Sept 23rd and may be tempted to go to $300 donation if there are tons of comments to support it.  Please read through the comments and support these schools!!

Because I just LOVE comments, here’s how to gain extra entries (please leave them as separate entries):

1. Do you subscribe by email or RSS to The Good Stuff Guide? I love my subscribers, so you get an extra entry. Wahoo!

2. Email 5 of your friends about The Good Stuff Guide and tell them what a rockin’ website this is. We’d love to have them join us!

4. “Share” any recent post from The Good Stuff Guide on your Facebook wall by clicking ‘Share’ under our Facebook posts with links to The Good Stuff Guide site.  This makes a visit to our site just a click away for all your Facebook friends – the more the merrier…

(Feel free to do them all – that’s a total of 5 entries!)

So, yes, each of you can be responsible for $5 going towards  In fact, I’d be thrilled!

And please visit to see what classrooms have need of in your area, or nationwide.  Every little bit helps!  You can donate in any amount.

Hopefully through our efforts, lots of adorables will become winners today!
