WELCOME TO DUCK FEST!

Have you heard about DuckFest?

Well, come on out from under that rock, wouldja? ;)

What is Duck Fest, you ask?
Duck Fest is an incredible effort across the blogosphere to help out Daffy over at BatCrap Crazy. Daffy lost her sister recently, and we're all pulling together to help raise money for the JD Scholarship Fund, a fund set up by the family to benefit BigSis's son as he and his dad face their future without his mom. This event runs from June 3rd through June 8th, all across Bloggy-Land.

How does Duck Fest work?
**I snagged this directly from That One Mom's website, so I KNOW it's accurate!**
You will be able to visit a number of giveaways to raise money for the JD Scholarship Fund. If you find a giveaway you'd like to enter, beginning June 3rd, you can click on the donate button on that giveaway and donate money for entries. Each entry is $1.00. If you donate $10.00 you have 10 entries to spend however you want. Please follow the PayPal directions for your donation (be sure to leave your blog url in notes for verification!). Leave a comment for each $1.00 donation on the giveaways of your choice and on June 9th, each hosting blog will select their winners using random.org.

How can I help out?
You can make a few "bids" on the various items up for grabs, or you can host a giveaway at your own blog. If you feel you have nothing to offer, well, you'd be surprised. I am actually going to be hosting something here, despite my initial feeling of 'I have nothing worthwhile.' Stay tuned for more details ... And if you'd like to participate, send an email to: That One Mom at thatonemom.onlyparentchronicles@gmail.com OR to Tamara at cheapskatemom@live.com.

I would like to donate money and not worry about prizes.
Wonderful! You'll be able to do that, too. Each post will have a donation button set up so you can contribute in the way that works best for you.

I'll also be setting up the donation button on my blog at some point, so stay tuned. And remember, every penny counts! Thanks so much for your help with this, and although I don't actually KNOW Daffy, I know she appreciates the support.

Much love to you and yours.

What a great cause! It's amazing what bloggers can do when they come together.

Good luck with this, I hope lots of money is raised for the scholarship fund.
