Did you know that one in six Cook County residents aren’t sure where they’ll find their next meal? Did you know the Greater Chicago Food Depository, Chicago’s Food Bank, distributed 66 million pounds of food to needy Cook County residents last year?
This is our opportunity to help.
Beginning today through September 30, 2013, I’m sponsoring the HUNGER BITES Virtual Food Drive to raise money for the GCFD. Donations can range from $3.15, which will buy a gallon of milk, to as high as you’d like to go!
I’ll match every dollar donated, up to $2,500.
Everyone who donates will be entered to win one of two Advanced Readers Copy of WILD THINGS plus, of course, other Chicagoland Vampires swag.
And then there’s the Grand Prize . . . One random participate in the food drive will get to name a character in BLOOD GAMES, the tenth Chicagoland Vampires novel.*
Just click on the logo above to visit the Hunger Bites Virtual Food Drive donation page!
Thank you so much for your generosity! Because of you, someone will eat today.
* – And here’s the disclaimer: I get to select the character (i.e., human, vampire, etc.), but I’ll offer options if I can. The selected name must be reasonable and unoffensive. It cannot replicate a character in the Chicagoland Vampires novels or other published novels, movie stars, etc., and it cannot be a phrase. (As much as I love them, I’m not naming anyone RoseandDimitriRule!) I reserve the right to refuse any name which is inappropriate, illegal, or offensive.
