Giving Thanks Giveaway

It has been said more than once, that people often turn to reading as an escape from life and the stress they face daily. Some days are harder than most. Each reviewer for this blog has had personal tragedies impact them, and what we love about this book community is how supportive we can be for others in their time of need.

So this Thanksgiving, we wanted to show our support for several charities that have a mission we fully support, and in some cases, have a personal connection to their cause.

Each reviewer of the blog has chosen a charity to promote. For each donation you make to one of the following charities, you will be entered to win one of the signed paperbacks listed below. So, if you make a donation to all seven charities, you will have SEVEN chances to win. To enter, merely post a screenshot of your contribution to the charity (on the pinned post located on our FB blog page -https://www.facebook.com/AftDarkBkLovers/posts/886270504883398 ), and tag the After Dark reviewer whose charity you donated to.

So, without further adieu, here are the charities the Shorties selected:
