Giftmas 2017: The Aftermath

WE RAISED $1,089!!!

Ahem. I mean:

Our fundraiser was an amazing success! Thank you so much to everyone who participated in the blog tour, donated to the cause, signal boosted our efforts or took part in any number of other ways. You are all amazing and together we did something crazy awesome.

We raised $1,089 to benefit the Edmonton Food Bank. Since they can stretch that money so that each dollar equals three meals that means we raised 3,267 meals!

Whoot whoot!

If you donated to the fundraiser don’t forget to use the ugly form over here to claim your awesome rewards:

Oh! And also, I said on social media that if we raised twice our original goal I would add a stretch goal that was my giving away my ghost story collection, “The Other Side of the Door” (which I haven’t even announced yet) for free. Well, our original goal was $522. Twice that would be $1,044. We raised $1,089. So guess what I’m giving away? More about that later though, for today I just want to focus on what we managed to do together.


Whew! It’s kind of mind-breaking.

Thank you again. Everyone.

I’ll announce the raffle winners tomorrow!
