December Giveaway #1

In the spirit of giving, I am going to try to give away several different fun things during the month of December.  For the first giveaway, you can win your very own hard-copy version of Blake Mycoskie's Start Something that Matters.

Mycoskie is the brainchild behind the TOMS shoe company, whose "One for One" philosophy has made them not only popular, but a company "that matters."  In his book, he talks about staring TOMS, following his passion, and turning that passion into something tangibly, authentically good.  I really respect the spirit of TOMS and what the book represents, and I think it dovetails nicely with this blog, in that I'm trying to do something that matters (even if just a little bit).

I'll post a full review of the book this coming weekend, but this whole week, you can enter to win a copy.  Here's what you need to do to enter:
  • "Like" Bipolar Knitter on Facebook -- either by clicking the button at the right or on my Facebook page.  Then leave me a comment with your name, and telling me that you "Liked" Bipolar Knitter
  • OR, if you've already "Liked" me on FB (thanks!), get someone else to "Like," too.  Then leave a comment with your name and the name of the person you referred, and you're both entered to win the book -- the person you referred gets one entry, and you get two, just cuz I'm generous like that.  If you refer more than one person, you get as many entries as referrals
  • OR, bribe me with cookies, jewelry, or Philosophy gift certificates. Okay, just kidding, don't really do that. I'm pretty sure it's in the exact opposite of the spirit of the book
A few things about this little contest:
  • Entries go till Friday night; I'll draw a winner this weekend
  • Not a lot of people read this blog.  Usually, I'd say that in a whiny, woe-is-me voice, but in this case, it's good for you!  There's more likelihood you'll win
  • This is a great opportunity to build a supportive, informative community by and for people with mental health disorders.  Just by entering the contest, you can do your part in making the community a little larger 
  • The books is really good.  Seriously.  You'll like it. And if you don't, hey, free Christmas gift for someone else!
  • I'll pay all shipping & handling costs for you.  Just call me Santa
