Donation Complete

Under the stipulations I made for myself was the section where I would print screen the donation once it has been put through/ accepted by the charity. One thing I want to make sure is that you know that I’ve done what I came out to do since you all went through the effort of participating in this contest. So, here is the proof that I donated to the winner’s charity.

I blacked this out due to sensitive information. Also the reason I donated 200 dollars to this one charity is because how strongly I feel towards inspiring the future generations and for the Indigenous people of my country of Canada. Living in the North I’ve seen what programs like Indspire can do for a community and I’ve also known a few people who had the help of Indspire while they were completing their education at the university I went to. So, I honestly believed 100 dollars wasn’t good enough to help those who need that little extra financial support to get to where they need to go.

Thank you to the winner Marian L. Thorpe for her passionate entry, and congratulation on winning this contest. Thank you to everyone who participated and I look forward to possibly doing this again next year. 🙂

Winner of the ‘If I Had 100 Dollars’ Contest

The Winner of the ‘If I Had 100 Dollars’ Contest. I can see from this post that Marian L. Thorpe was incredibly passionate about her charity and that this charity Indspire will help many Canadian Indigenous peoples gain a better education and become strong leaders of their communities.
Thank you, Marian for your participation in this contest and I look forward to reading more of your works in the future.

Check out her wonderful entry and this fantastic charity for more information. 🙂

I’ve written a fair bit on my other blog, Two Simple Lives, about how books and stories shaped my view of the world. As with most children, I was drawn to those books that mirrored my own family, solidifying my sense of cultural heritage, helping me understand and relate to my grandparents and parents who would always be a little out of place in the land to which they’d emigrated…and finally allowing me, as an adult, the cultural fluidity to move easily between two countries.

I did not grow up in a wealthy family. There was no extra money at all when I was a child. I wore hand-me-downs from my sister and from family friends, my bike had been second-hand about twenty owners before…but there were always books. Books passed on from friends whose children had outgrown them. Books as birthday and Christmas presents. Books from the library. Children’s…

Tonight Leonard-NO Becomes Leonard-Won

To start this off, I am not an Oscar fan. In the 25 years I’ve been on this earth the Oscars have been low on my priority list but for some reason as I sit here in my hotel room between Thunder Bay and London, Ontario heading to start a new part of my life, I find myself enraptured in the frivolous display put on by the Oscars. This is one night where people who we idolize on screen fight for a chance to gain a gold statue of a naked person that we have given purpose to as the greatest award an actor can receive. Now, I am not one to enjoy people thanking their parents or dog or their favourite role model while holding back their tears on how thankful they are for what has happened – it feels fake to me – but, asides from all this frivolous, fake, idolization of others I do have to watch this year’s Oscars to see if one person finally gets this rewarded for all his hard work.

I’ve been #TeamLeo since I first watched him as Jack in BearActingSkillthe 1997 release of Titanic, so when I heard that Leonardo DiCaprio was nominated for Best Actor for his role in ‘The Revenant’ I had to watch. Now, I’m being bias when I say that this is his year – as I’m wearing my DIY #TeamLeo shirt – but after all the challenges he had to face with this role this has to be his year.  Sure sub-zero temperatures are nothing – live in Thunder Bay and you’ll understand – but even us Northerner’s run screaming like little girls when faced with a bear. Leonardo faces them head on… well fake bears head on… but it sure seemed real to those watching because “acting”. So, for the sake of his own safety it may be in the film industry’s best interest to give him the bloody gold statue before he actually takes on a real bear in his next role.

UPDATE:

HECK YES! I am so happy he finally got that Oscar. Although I do not approve of his lifestyle I do respect his ability on screen. I’m proud Leo finally got what he deserved – regarding this award.

Two Gifts To My Followers Starting Wednesday!

So… I’ve surpassed my goal for this blog about a day ago….

Seven months ago when I started this blog and my journey to self-publish my book series I had in mind that I knew I was doing something right if I could reach 450 followers.

Well people, it’s happened. It took me seven months but today officially puts me at 451 followers and I’m gosh darn toodly doodly that I have to give something back to you all for your awesome support over these months. Now, how will I be giving back?

Two ways actually.

The first way I’ll be giving back is tomorrow’s WWW post.

For this WWW I will be posting 7 Wonderful Words instead of 1 like I usually do. This is to commemorate the seven months of you being so wonderful that I had to put it into seven wonderful words. (Plus that seems to be your favourite segment on my blog next to Old Word Friday). 🙂

The second way I want to show my thanks for your support actually involves a little more work from you- bare with me while I explain.

The whole point in writing this book – heck this series – was to help people. This whole project started with me, but you all have been their for the ride and I want you all to feel like you’re involved in making things happen.

So…

What I want to do is donate 200 dollars to charity. This isn’t book money… since my first book is being offered for free… but money out of my own pocket. I just want to help others and with a growing community like mine I want everyone here to be able to have a chance to make a difference.

What I want to do is give the money to two charities. That means 100 dollars to each charity. There are a lot of charities out there and so this is where I hopefully get you all involved in this adventure.

The rules are as follows:

Write a Blog Post no less than 100 and no more than 3000 words with the title – If I Had 100 Dollars

The post will be about a charity that’s main focus is about children, education, or literacy. (There are a lot of options out there for these… I know… I’ve looked…)

The post should talk briefly about the charity and why you think they deserve the donation. What made you choose this charity? Why do you want me to choose this charity? Also include a link to the charity site (so I can check it out and learn more about the charity you have written about).

If you don’t want to blog or can’t blog, send me your post by email.

Tweet me the link to your post @DProphecy6 or email me at prophecy6@outlook.com.

The end date for this will be FEBRUARY 15TH, 2016.

NOW, what will I do and what will the winners get:

  1. I will either reblog or post the charity winners on my site on FEB 15th, 2016.
  2. I will print screen the completed transactions of the donations to my blog by FEB 16th, 2016.
  3. I will also follow the winners’ blog and reblog seven of their posts.
  4. The winners will also get a signed paperback version of the first and (eventually) second P6 book.

_______________________________________________________________________________

Forward this to people you think may want to take part. The more entries the better.

I can’t wait to read your posts. 🙂
