Itty Bitty Contest to Benefit the Fundraiser...Oh, Yeah, there is a fundrasier

As some of you know (those who follow us on Facebook or Ravelry), I am hosting a fundraiser to help fund my inner city classroom. Every year, I submit a grant to DonorsChoose to help fill gaps in resources. This year, I wished big and have been unable to get donations. I asked some friends to help and we are hosting auctions on Knit Night to help make this happen. The auctions start on September 29 at noon. I hope you will consider bidding or donating directly.

So, to continue garnering interest in the auctions, I am going to hold a contest. The prize isn't much. We are after all, trying to raise money. The winner will receive a Comfort Wool Pattern Bundle. It will include only the two soon to be released, Ellowyn and Evrim patterns.

So, how do you enter?

1. Post on your Facebook wall about the fundraisers and include a link to Knit Night. You can enter this way daily by posting a comment here letting me know you shared on your wall.
2. Post information on your blog with links to my blog and Knit Night. Post the link to your blog in the comments here. (One Entry)
3. Include information in your signature on public boards, such as DiaperSwappers. Link me to your profile. (One Entry)
4. Pin our auctions on Pininterest. (One Entry).
5. Post about the two new patterns on your facebook, pintinterst, etc. One entry each.
5. Have another creative way to share our fundraiser? Let me know.

A winner will be chosen by random on September 29 from the comments on this blog. So be sure to tell me in the comments how you helped spread the word. Make one comment for each entry!

Thanks for helping to spread the word!!!!!!
