Thank you and a GIVEAWAY

Hey everyone,

I can't thank you enough for supporting my essay in the NYTimes contest I entered. I just found out this weekend that I won! So, this summer, I'll travel with Nicholas Kristof and blog for the Times. I am beyond thrilled by the support I have received from the incredible blogging community.

There is always so much love going around that I wanted to do a series of giveaways as one way of giving back. Right now,

one prize will be a $20 Amazon Gift
another, a brand new book of your choice (accompanied with some goodies)
and the last, a collection of my dorky office supplies that help the writing process: giant Post Its, fun pens, colored pencils, etc.

Thank you so much once again, everyone!

    I just won a 40 dollar Amazon certificate at Janet Johnson and Vicki Rocho's wonderful blog contest, so I'll pass on your giveway and let someone else get the goodies. But I love it when people celebrate their good news by giving back. Way to go! You know I will be following every blog post you write!
