That is what the "Chip-In" widget is on the side of my blog. I didn't know I had to write the little blurb when I was setting it up.... lol. So that is what it's all about. If you donate you get a chance to win some fabulous prizes!! So if you're a blogger I'd suggest grabbing the ChipIn widget and posting it on your blog as well!
I donated as soon as I heard about this so I got to get extra entries to the huge raffel/giveaway. You should check it out. All you got to do is make a donation! There are tons of sponsors and great prizes. All you got to do is go here to enter and READ THE RULES! It took me a while to get all my entries in, but I did it. Go HERE to enter.
From Melissa: I am putting together a big huge giveaway raffle where entries require at least a $5 donation for Shannon’s family in their time of need.
We will be collecting money via ChipIn.com and the money will go directly into Shannon’s paypal account. I will hold the raffle on my blog and I want to post it on as many other blogs as possible. All sponsors and bloggers WILL be allowed to enter into the giveaway. I will be the only one drawing the winner so I will not participate.
I will let the giveaway run until the end of February. Since the funds are going directly to Shannon’s paypal account she will receive them anytime anybody donates/enters the giveaway.
