Help a blogger out, win an iPod, do a little dance, make a little love.

This is Piper.

Piper’s had a tough time recently. And with heartbreak and a recently destroyed car in her past, it’s about time that good karma shows up in her future, even if we have to give it a little kick in the ass.

Here’s the plan. From today, Tuesday, June 22nd, until Wednesday, June 30th at midnight EST, we’re holding a giveaway, the proceeds of which go completely to Piper to help with her car, her return to school, four thousand gallons of ice cream, or anything else that she needs.

Donation tickets are $10 each. Each ticket gives you one chance at winning one of the following prizes. Void where prohibited by law.:

GRAND PRIZE (quantity = 1): 8 GB iPod Touch

How can you help?

1. Buy multiple tickets. There are 23 prizes available, so your chances are much higher than winning the lottery, getting hit by lightning, or finding a sober Lindsay Lohan.

2. Share this post, tweet it, post about it, and spread the word.

3. Go to the future, find out the winning lottery numbers, then come back and tell them to me. Privately. I’ll pass it on. I swear. Really.

  1. Adam, I wish I reach through this computer screen and hug your sweet neck. This is one of the best things anyone has ever done for me, and my boys, and I really just don’t know how to express my gratitude properly.

    The thoughtful kind-hearted goodness of the internetz (yes, even here, where tact is clearly for pussies) is mindblowing. I’m amazed, and so weepy with love-tears for all of you.

    No matter what happens, this has made a huge impact on me. Thank you!

    (((((BIG HUGS))))) I love you all, for really <3

  2. As Piper’s sister, I would to thank all of you for blessing her like this!! She deserves it and this is such an awesome thing that you all are doing!!

  3. My time portal doesn’t work in Egypt. Shite.
    But at least I shared the fun πŸ˜‰

    Tell me, do you send the Grand prizes to APO? πŸ˜‰

    Anyhow, grand idea and grand prizes!
    (And LOVE that header :D)

  4. this is soooo cool. I’ve never done anything like this before but how could I say no to only 10 bucks and having paypal made this so very simple and easy. And now I found out she has children to boot. Right on, I hope I win any number of these fabulous gifts and even if I don’t, I’m sure the money will go to good use.
    peace n abundance,

  5. I’m sitting here crying, and it’s ALL GOOD. I still can’t believe this is happening.

    You know that miracle I needed so badly? This is it. I’m just so incredibly grateful. Grateful beyond words!

    HOW can I thank you enough?
