Duck Fest

DUCK FEST is supporting our fellow blog bud, Daffy. She is setting up the JD Scholarship Fund in honor of her sister, Wendy. JD is Daffy's 5 year old nephew who just lost his mother suddenly, last week. I have a 5 year-old. What the hell would he do without his mommy? It's not fair.

Right now, JD is too young to understand what is happening around him. I'd like to think that our efforts during DUCK FEST will one day give JD hope. That the generosity of strangers helped get him to college, and a community banded together for him and his family during a very difficult time.

DUCK FEST will begin on June 3rd. This day will be very difficult for Daffy and her family as it would have been Wendy's 36th birthday.

Donating to a good cause has never been more fun! Come back June 3rd and check out all the participating bloggers and their giveaways that will be listed!

What is DUCK FEST?
DUCK FEST is a blog party fundraising event to raise money for the JD Scholarship Fund. It runs June 3 - 8 right here in the blogosphere!

How does DUCK FEST work?By using the McLinky at the bottom of this page, you are able to visit a number of giveaways to raise money for the JD Scholarship Fund. If you find a giveaway you'd like to enter, beginning June 3, you can click on the donate button on that giveaway and donate money for entries. Each entry is $1.00. If you donate $10.00 you have 10 entries to spend however you want.   Please follow the PayPal directions for your donation (be sure to leave your blog url in notes for verification!) To enter, leave a comment for each $1.00 donation on the giveaways of your choice!  Except you know, you can leave the one on Cheapskate Mom's blog alone because my boys need that thing! Or you could win it and give it to my boys because you want to be my most favorite person in the whole world.
On June 9, each hosting blog will select their winners using random.org.

How can I participate?Do you have a skill or talent you'd like to showcase? Do you rub elbows with PR firms, have advertisers or sponsors that would support the cause? You are more than welcome to host a giveaway at your blog! Do you have product you'd like to donate, but don't have an outlet to run a giveaway? We're happy to host it for you! If you'd like to participate, send an email to me - That One Mom at thatonemom.onlyparentchronicles@gmail.com OR to Tamara at cheapskatemom.@live.com

What if I would just like to donate money and not worry about prizes?That is perfectly fine! Just click on the donate button in the side bar. All donations go directly to the JD Scholarship Fund!
In the meantime, grab a button and spread the word!! Word of mouth is key to making DUCK FEST a success!

Shell, thank you for posting this. With all the awful press mommy bloggers have been getting lately, it's nice to see that we truly are a great group of human beings, no matter what the haters say.

A big cheer for Duck Fest and for all our wonderful bloggers.

Yay! I'm excited for DUCK FEST!! Lots of great things to give away!

We did take the MckLinky down though - seems bloggers were looking at it like a follow friday and not for what it was meant to be..you can remove the code from your post if ya want.

If you plan to give an item for a DUCK FEST giveaway email me and I will get you the new linky thingy =)

Thanks so so much!!

Never did I imagine that my family would be the one being spoken about...this kind of thing always happens to someone else.

The English language does not hold words weighty enough to express my thanks, my gratitude, my humility, my sadness and my joy....or maybe I've just not adequate command of the language. While it falls grossly short of conveying the fullness of my feelings, I offer you my Thanks.
