Some Dork Turned His Tweets Into A Book (and you could win the book)

May 4th, 2010

And the winners are: The Schroeders and Jessica. Congrats.


The dork is my husband and the book is a collection of tweets about adoption, the kids, water, and life. And I’ve got 2 books to give away.

And the best part for every book that is purchased $2 will be donated to charity:water to build a well in Ethiopia.

Here’s how to win a copy of the book:

1. Leave a comment. Yep. That’s it.
2. If you tweet/facebook/blog about the give away, leave a second comment (with a link to where you posted it) and you get a second entry.
3. Donate to charity:water. For every dollar you donate, you’ll get another entry ($5=5 entries). Come back here and let me know you donated – we’re going on the honor system here people. If you don’t want to share how much you donated just e-mail me abbyhendricks at gmail dot com and I’ll put the appropriate number of entries in the hat.

Entries close on May 10th at 5 pm CST. Winners will be drawn by Lexi and Milo.

Good Luck!

    Abby, this is so cool. Not that Kevin knows me, but you should tell him I think this is so cool. I blog…but I’m not nearly this creative. You guys are neat-o.

    Cool! Cool that he wrote a book about Milo’s adoption, that you’re donating some of the proceeds to a great cause, and that I might win a copy. Congratulations to him!

    Super cool! I already sent the Amazon link to a few friends. I can’t wait to read it for many reasons…including the fact that we are practically neighbors (I’m a minneapolian :-).

    Congrats to your husband on the book! I love to read stories about adoption journeys. I even go back and reread our old blog posts – our little one is home now and it is amazing to relive the emotional roller coaster that is adoption.

    This is a great idea! I can’t wait to see this book!

    Yay! I would also like to win a copy because I’d like to read it! And I’m pretty cheap. I mean, shamefully cheap. I feel shame.

    Sounds good. If I don’t win it, I’ll buy it.

  22. Elizaberth Madden on May 10, 2010 4:02 pm

    Does this make me cheap that I am trying to win your book? Grandma said she was reading it and it’s pretty funny! It might be my first read for the pool this summer!

    Okay, thanks for entering. If your name is above this comment you are entered. Once the kids wake up from naps I’ll have them pick 2 winners.

    Hi! We have heard many good things about your book and would love to win a copy! We are currently working on a special needs adoption through China.
