East Texas Book Bash will be doing a raffle to benefit MDA the day of the event. To enter the raffle all you will have to do is purchase a Shamrock. Shamrock's are $1 and the more the person buys the more entries they will have into the raffle.
If you choose to donate any items to our charity giveaway they will be placed in our Book Buffet. What is a Book Buffet you ask? It is where anytime a person makes a donation to our charity during the event they will be allowed to pick up a book or item from our giveaway table for free. And if they donate $5 or more they will be put into a drawing to win a voucher to turn into an attending author in exchange for a free book (Kindle version, paperback or both). Any items that have not been picked up by the end of the event will be given away to additional winners drawn from the raffle.
Personal story as to why East Texas Book Bash chose to benefit MDA:As to why I choose MDA for the events charity. I was born with CMT (Charcot-Marie Tooth) and I am now wheelchair bound. Below is a link that will tell you more about CMT and how it effects me and others with the same disease. There are several more and you can find them all on the web-site. But in short I choose MDA because they helped me and my family the whole time I was growing up. We never had to pay for my doctor visits, braces for my feet, sent me to summer camp for 1 week every summer for free and later helped me get my first powerchair. If you have any questions feel free to ask or go to the site.https://www.mda.org/disease/charcot-marie-tooth

How does MDA spend the money it raises? MDA is funded almost entirely by individual private contributions and generous corporate sponsors and organizations. We also host numerous events nationwide, such as our Muscle Walk, Lock-Ups and Team Momentum endurance program, in which dedicated supporters raise money in their communities to support our fight.MDA uses every dollar we raise wisely to ensure it has the greatest impact for the families we serve. We dedicate 74 cents of every dollar we raise directly to research, services and education. The remaining funds go to helping us support our incredible staff and events that make the work we do for families possible.
