#EarthDay Gifts from me for you and the Planet

22 Apr

It’s Earth Day and I can’t think of a better day to get back to blogging. I have gifts for the earth and my readers this week. For readers I’ll be giving away three prizes from the PETA Store. I will name three winners at noon ET next Friday, April 30th. Here’s all you need to do to enter.

Email the rabbit from The Tiger’s Tale — blogginbunny (insert at-sign) gmail.com (One email per reader please) for a chance to  win a tote.

Follow blogginbunny on twitter for a chance to win a mug.

Comment here on any or all blog post during the next week and you’ll be entered to win: Meatless Meals for Working People: Quick and Easy Vegetarian Recipes by Debra Wasserman and Charles Stahler (one comment per post please)

Even if you’re not a vegetarian, adding a few meatless meals to your menu each week will keep you and the earth healthier, so I hope you’ll comment on the blog and pile up some chances to win this great book.

My gift to the earth this Earth Day is to pledge 10% of my royalties for The Tiger’s Tale from launch day(March 12) to the first day of summer (June 21) to PETA. I’m setting a time limit to allow me to reassess where I want to send donations on a regular basis. There are so many charities I hope to support with my writing.

Why PETA? I used to have a job that took me into research facilities on a regular basis. What I saw done to animals broke my heart. I don’t know how much influence I have, but I hope my shapeshifter fiction imparts a sense of animals as more than objects to be exploited and I hope my earnings can support organizations that work to improve the situation for both wild and domestic animals on this earth.

Are you doing anything special to celebrate Earth Day?  Tell me about it in the comments.

    I was engrossed in take your child to work day today and my husband’s 50th birthday today. We had 7 children in my office and about 45 at the company. I plan to attend the earth day festival in my town Saturday and I plan to plant more flowers, bushes, and maybe a tree in my yard this weekend, in celebration.

    Earth Day fell on recycle day for us in Hamburg, PA. I Recycle weekly & have just finished planting more bushes & flowers.

    Hi, Mina and Ashley. Thanks for sharing your earth day plans with me. Planting is a great way to celebrate. I think I’ll pick out some nice flowers this weekend to plant.

    What a thoughtful way to celebrate Earth Day, Nara! Our kids’ school had a waste-free lunch week–we mostly do that already, but it was a great reminder for all of us to be more aware of our impact! Hope you’re having a great week!
