If you're not interested in investing in signing up to do UYS and you don't want to bother with goal setting, you can still help AND win a prize.
Anyone who donates through my link can win a Summer Devon download book. Yup. Donate at least ten dollars to my group--and you can pick the title. It's easy to do. Go to that link, look for "Kate Rothwell" as a participant and CFF will help you do the rest.
Of course if you do decide to go sign up and get to work with your own fundraising, you'll be eligible for some great prizes. Seriously. Look at this (lifted straight from the UYS page)
- For each $100 earned (up to $500) you will receive a free book.
