Hello and happy holiday season! Here is a post I shared on my personal Facebook page but am hoping to reach a wider audience:
I have a brand new, still in box, Kindle Paperwhite and am looking for some help paying it forward this holiday season. If you know someone who: a.) loves reading (this is important!) AND b.) perhaps can’t afford an ereader, or would never buy something like that for themselves because they’re always giving to others – I would like to hear from you.
Tell me who you would nominate to receive the Kindle Paperwhite and why you feel they would be the perfect recipient.
I will accept EMAIL nominations only (address below). Please do not reply to this post with your nomination. Please do not FB message me your nomination. I will accept email nominations at the provided email address until 3:00 p.m. Friday, December 4. That’s just a few days so don’t hesitate to get your letters in!
You may share this post to reach out to more people (please do!). I do not have to personally know the individual being nominated (or the person nominating). ANYONE can be nominated, provided they meet the criteria above. 😉 You can even nominate yourself!
I will have at least one other person reading through your nominations and helping me choose the recipient. I have a feeling it will be tough to decide! I may ask for personal information (name, address, phone number) from the recipient to determine how best to deliver the Kindle and I may ask permission to share their story on FB.
So, now that I’ve used some variation of the words ‘nomination’ and ‘recipient’ approximately 623 times, here’s where I need you to send your email:
Again, I will only be accepting nominations, and only via the email address provided, until 3:00 p.m. this Friday, December 4.
Thank you for helping me make this holiday extra bright for someone. I look forward to reading your nominations!
