Decareaux Family Memorial Fund Raffle
My dear friends had a tragedy happen within their family. Dave Decareaux was out walking on a trail with his two young sons and were hit by a freak storm of freezing rain. All three died of hypothermia. Here is the link to find out more of the full story. CLICK HERE
I have known this family for several years--as Sarah and I both gave birth on the same day 11 years ago in a little hospital in the Azores Islands. When they moved to England a year after we did, it was just another opportunity to bond with them.
Now, I weep for Sarah and her three remaining children. I wanted to do something special that would allow me to give back to this wonderful family.
So as I am gearing up to begin writing my 9th book, it hit me--here was an opportunity! This book will the 5th book of the Jenni James Faerie Tale Collection, Snow White.
So I propose a raffle drawing. 100% of the proceeds will go to the David Decareaux Family Fund. Each raffle ticket costs $5. For every raffle bought, you will be entered for a chance for your name (or the name of your loved one) to be a character in my book. I will assign out the numbers as the raffles are received. And I will use random.org to pick the numbers for me. Each of the 3 winners will also receive a signed copy of the book.
If you would like to be apart of my next faerie tale book, and to help out Decareaux family. You can donate here in increments of $5. (However much you donate, I've divide it by 5 for the number of entries you receive.) Thank you so much! -Jenni James ***Raffle ends on Wed. 23, 2013***
