I had this idea of a contest, at the moment being referred to as the "Be Awesome" Contest and the idea is to Be Awesome in two ways:
1. The main way to be awesome is to donate money to a charity, help out a friend in need, babysit a sibling without fuss or even without being paid, or anything else you can think of. It can be a one-time thing if you like, but the more you do (no matter how big or small...) the more entries you will get into the contest.
2. The other way to Be Awesome is to spread the word about the blog, Shooting Stars, and most importantly...the idea of this contest.
Those are the basics, but the contest isn't going on YET, because we still need to work some stuff out. For one...how long should this last? A month? Two? Leave a comment and let us know what YOU think!
Also, I have some ideas in mind for the prize (which will be a prize pack with a mix of items...) but we'd love to include anything that anyone is willing to donate (authors, musicians, etc.) Anything and everything is game. If we get more than enough donations....we might even give away two prizes. We'll just have to see!
In thanks for anyone willing to help out...I promise to review (if the item is something that can be reviewed) the first three things that are donated (if you say you wish to have it reviewed) and of course, all the items in the prize pack will be listed for all to see (to further promote you and your awesomeness!)
I think that covers most details. Please leave comments on what you think/how long you think the contest should last and get in touch if you have something to giveaway.
And the emails are at the top of the blog!!!
