NOTE: It is now past December 25, 2016, so this offer is EXPIRED! However, I am working to set up a similar deal with e-books rather than print. Hope to have an update soon.
Let’s save the world together. Given the recent U.S. election results, a lot of vulnerable populations are going to need our help. And I’m going to make it easy for you by throwing in a prize. Generosity should be rewarded, yes?
A Free, Signed, Print Book
If you make a donation of 22 dollars or more to Planned Parenthood, Lambda Legal, or the ACLU, I will mail you a free, signed, print copy of my novel The Pseudo-Chronicles of Mark Huntley.
That’s right. A big, print book, for free, as a thank you for your generosity in supporting civil rights organizations. I will mail the book anywhere in the U.S. or Canada. $22 is how much you’d normally be spending for the book on Amazon. If you do it this way instead, you get to support an important cause as well as receiving the book.
Here’s all you have to do:
1) Make a $22 (or more) donation to one of the following organizations: Planned Parenthood, Lambda Legal, or the ACLU — in honor of “Mark Huntley.”
A) Planned Parenthood is a nonprofit organization that provides reproductive health services and comprehensive sex education both in the U.S. and globally. Donate here. Check the box for “Yes, my gift is in honor or in memory of someone special” and put “Mark Huntley” as the honoree’s name.
B) Lambda Legal is the nation’s oldest and largest legal organization working for the civil rights of lesbians, gay men, and people with HIV/AIDS. Donate here. Check the box for “Check if this is an honor or memorial gift” and put “Mark Huntley” as the honoree’s name.
C) The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) is a national organization that works to defend and preserve the individual rights and liberties guaranteed to every person in the U.S. by the Constitution. Donate here. Put “Mark Huntley” as the honoree’s name.
2) Take a screen capture of the transaction record, block out sensitive info, and send to jeffdeck [at] jeffdeck.com along with your mailing address.
Make sure your screen capture of the transaction includes your own name, Mark Huntley’s name, and the donation amount. Capture from the website rather than from your confirmation e-mail, which may not have all the necessary info. Here’s an example from an ACLU donation:
Then send me the screen capture at my e-mail address, jeffdeck [at] jeffdeck.com. Please include your mailing address (in the U.S. or Canada only) so I know where to mail the book to. Then I’ll sign a book for you and pop it in the mail as soon as I can! (I won’t sign it addressed to you unless you specifically ask for it, just in case you’d rather gift the book to someone else.)
This offer is only good until Christmas (December 25th, 2016). Or maybe sooner, if the offer becomes wildly popular and I run out of money! One book per individual donor is the maximum. You’ll want to act sooner than later, especially if you want to use the free book as a holiday gift for someone. Thank you for supporting organizations that make a difference!
