Random Acts of Kindness: August Sign-up

Book Soulmates

Hi, everyone!

I just learned about something very cool called Random Acts of Kindness or "R.A.K." hosted by Book Soulmates. What you do is make a "wish list" of books that you want and sign-up at Book Soulmates, where you can also view the wish lists of other participants. Choose any participant that you would like and buy one of the books on their wishlist! This reminds me of the "Secret Santa" type of draws that people do at Christmas-time.


Here are the rules from Book Soulmates:

Simple Giveaway Rules:
  • The giveaway is open to participants ONLY.
  • Please post about RAK and the giveaway info on your blog and paste link in the same google doc that you use to sign up for RAK
    OR
  • If you don't have a blog, you can still be entered by tweeting about it or Facebooking it and TAG US
  • {If you don't have the link by the time you sign up for the RAK itself, then please email me and I'll add it}
    That's it :)
IMPORTANT: If you do not wish to sign up for the giveaway then please leave a comment in the comments section of the google doc.

Now on to the RAK rules!

RULES RE-CAP -
NEW request added:

  • Sign up each month that you'd like to participate.

  • Show off your participation by grabbing our RAK button :)
  • Create a wish list (on Amazon, Goodreads, or your blog etc) and post it in the Google Doc located in each R.A.K post for the month.
  • If you choose to do a R.A.K for someone, check out their wish list and contact that blogger for their address.

  • NEW REQUEST: Please, once you receive a RAK, email or tweet me {Vanessa} so that I can update the Google doc. There are a lot of requests for this!
  • At the end of the month, SHOW US YOUR R.A.K! Make a post saying 'Thank You' to whoever granted one of your wishes and share it with us :)
OPEN TO EVERYONE!
Let's keep our International bloggers in mind and in our hearts.
Remember, there's always the Book Depository and they offer FREE shipping!

Easy peezy!!

Good Luck to all the Giveaway participants and thanks for joining and passing on the kindness! You guys ROCK!!


**IMPORTANT NOTES**
  1. When talking about RAK on Twitter, please use the hastag (#RAK). It makes it much easier to keep track of the conversations, answer questions and/or tweet back! =)
  2. When submitting your wish list, please make sure that it is set to PUBLIC viewing. Some people have run into trouble with wish lists that were set to private. We want to be sure that no one is left out of getting great RAKs.
  3. Some of you seem to have gotten frustrated because you can't get your links to appear active. This is a very easy fix :) Just make sure that when you enter your link, do NOT hit the Enter key. Instead, hit the TAB key which will send you to the next field on the form. Additional spaces entered after the link will leave the link inactive. However, if this does happen to you...no worries, we'll fix it for you :)
