Because who doesn't like something for free while helping others in the process...

I have something exciting to share with you all! As some of you may already know, I have been working on my very first Photography Book. Thanks to Snapfish and Oprah and their free 8X11 photo book making offer I can give you all a sneak peak with a "Sample" book. All this means really is that it this book is a test run. Most, if not all, of the photographs and text in the Sample Book will be in my first official Photography Book (due out before Christmas! More on that later in the week). The only thing that will likely be different in the Sample Book is the layout and that its made by Snapfish. The best part is, this book can be yours for FREE.

Here's the info:
8"x11" custom cover book(s):
Cover: black custom cover
20 pages filled with beautiful photographs and inspiring quotes.

I know many other bloggers out there ask people to leave comments to enter their contests and then they randomly pick a number to choose the winner. I'd like to do something a little bit different here. I'd like to pass the giving on. So, anyone that donates to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) - it can be any amount- will be entered to win my Photography "Sample" book. Why JDRF you ask? Well, they are a really great organization that's made incredible advances in finding a cure for Type 1 diabetes and they do so much for people afflicted with Type 1 and their families. Secondly, I have been a Type 1 diabetic for 18 years now and know all too well what a life changing and devastating disease it can be. So, please if you can, donate to this fabulous cause. 'Tis the season, right?

Why enter the contest to win the book you ask? Well... first of all, its a $30 book and you could win it for free. Not to mention, there are some really kickn' photos in it (Hey, I've gotta promote) And last but not least, even if you aren't a fan of my photography or don't really want/need a photograph book, think of it this way... its a free gift that you can give your family member, coworker, boss (ect...) for the Holidays,

All you have to do is email me the confirmation receipt you receive from JDRF after you make your donation. To be fair, everyone will get an equal (1) chance to win, no matter how much you donate. I will give you all a week to email me letting me know you've donated. Also, if for some reason you do not like donating online or do not have the means to donate online, you can also donate via snail mail and just shoot me an email to let me know you did so. I am taking people's word here, so if you say you're donating via snail mail please do so. Its for a great cause!

So simply:

1. Go to www.jdrf.org

2. Make a donation of any amount

3. Email me at cjillphoto@gmail.com with a copy of your receipt. I will email you back to confirm that I received it. So if you don't hear back from me, let me know.

4. Feel free to spread the word. The more people that donate to this great cause, the better :)

4. Giveaway ends at 7pm(eastern time)on Sunday, November 23rd when I will have Random.org ( http://www.random.org/ ) pick the winner.

If you have any questions, ask away!
