iGive Challenge until November 12th

Hi Everyone! 

Here is a special challenge that iGive is running until November 12th that will help Plant-a-Book International help our kids!  If you have never used iGive before -- this is for you!  PLEASE try to think of SOMETHING to purchase through the iGive link (Christmas is coming and MANY of our favorite stores are listed!).  PAB will receive $5 for every new iGive user!!!  Pass the word to your friends and family, too, and tell them to list Plant-a-Book International as their charity of choice.  Here is how it works:
Donation Challenge - Each New Active Member Means $5+ for Plant-a-Book International

Through November 12, 2013, Plant-a-Book International earns an extra $5 for new supporters at iGive who make at least one purchase. That's in addition to the normal donation amount. There's never been a better time to help the children of Galilee Primary School, Waddington High School and Holly House children's homes, at no cost to you.

Three important details -
  1. Over 1,350 stores participating. Purchases at Amazon count for a donation,
    but not towards the new member bonus.
  2. New iGive members only (never joined before) and you must make a purchase by 11/12/13.
  3. You must use our special link we've provided below to join. And you must use iGive to visit the store (the Button, the iPhone / iPad apps, or links on the iGive site). Returns don't count.
Get the word out today. Donation Challenge ends 11/12/13.  Please tell your friends and family, too.

The holidays are around the corner. Every purchase supporters make can help Plant-a-Book International. They'll feel good, and they'll do good.

Thanks, Everyone!
