Each year, we have chosen a charity for which to collect $1 raffle entry donations in order to win from a huge selection of items at the #Shameless18 signing event on Saturday.
Last year, we were able to donate a total of $3,000 to our two charities, Equality Florida and Direct Relief.
For 2018, we’ve chosen to work with Pet Alliance of Greater Orlando, a charity that is looking forward to attending the event!
Who Can Enter To Win
Each attendee and author will receive a $1 raffle ticket in their swag bag at registration that will be donated by Shameless Book Club. Shameless Book Club is also donating over $1,000 worth of items (designer handbags and totes, jewelry, Shameless merchandise, etc) to the raffle. Additional $1 raffle tickets will be available for sale at the event all day Saturday.
Any person in attendance – attendees, volunteers, authors, etc – with a valid raffle ticket is eligible to enter to win a charity raffle prize!
Who Can Donate
We are opening up the raffle to all authors, publishers, and anyone interested in growing the donation (with some shameless self promotion)!
Prize Giveaway Ideas
In past years, the prizes with the most entries were themed gift baskets. They don’t have to be book-related, but including a book in the basket is always a good idea!
Think of your basket as something that represents you as an author or a specific book or series you’re promoting; kind of like a one-time, original subscription box. (see examples below)
For example, if you’re promoting a book you’re selling that’s about vampires, include a few PNR-related goodies in a black tote bag. Or if you’re promoting a book about a football team, stuff some sports goodies in your giveaway. The bigger and the more creative, the better!
How To Get Your Prize To Us
You may take your giveaway to Shameless Book Con and hand it over to us on Thursday afternoon, all day Friday, or before 10am on Saturday at the hotel. (recommended)
If you need to ship your prize to us because you won’t be attending #Shameless18, select “Sending to Adrian” and she will be in touch with her shipping information.
You may also ship your prize directly to us at the Doubletree hotel. See this information form for details.
