I know it seems a little early to be thinking about the new school year, but it will sneak up on you!
The Never Stop Learning Giveaway Hop will run from July 23-29, 2012 and we would love for it to become an ANNUAL event.
The idea for this event is to help our readers find some new games, books and homeschooling curriculum for the new school year. Please don’t get turned off by the fact that I said ‘homeschool’!! You don’t have to homeschool or have readers that homeschool to have fun with this event! There are lots of things that fall under the category of ‘learning’, so don’t limit it to homeschooling books. (more details on that below)
Giveaway details at a glance:
- Dates: July 23-29, 2012

- Set your Rafflecopter widget to end on July 30th at 12:01AM.
- Prize minimum: $25

- Giveaway must be in the category of ‘learning’. What does that mean?? Think books, fun games, education apps, online learning websites, etc.
Event Rules & Guidelines:
- Prize must have a minimum value of $25.00.
- You may have multiple prize packs available, but each prize must meet the minimum value requirement for this event. ($25)
- Your giveaway must be dedicated to this particular event with event button, details, host names, and linky displayed within the post.
- Posts must go live at midnight on JULY 23, 2012.
- All participants will be checked for their posts and removed from the event linky if post is not visible.
- You may be added back onto the linky once your post is live, but your spot will be lost as you are added to the bottom of the list.
- Direct links, prize value, and country restrictions will be requested: You will be asked for the direct url for your post so that all readers will be able to easily hop from one post to another. (This isn’t a ‘requirement’, but it will only make things easier for all our readers!)
- You MUST have the giveaway LINKY on the SAME page as your giveaway (Rafflecopter/entry method form). Please do not make readers go to multiple different pages on your site just to enter. (Again, trying to make this easy for the reader so they will want to continue to hop!)
- You must host the giveaway on your blog and not on your Facebook Page since hosting on your Facebook page will prohibit you from promoting the linky code.
- If you have questions, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com for extra support!
- Sign up by JULY 15, 2012. *After this date, the linky will close and signups will no longer be accepted!
- Optional: It is requested, but not required, that you grab the event button and put it on your sidebar so that other bloggers will have the chance to see it and sign up! You can link it back to this post so they can learn more, then when the event begins, you can link it to your own giveaway post to guide your readers to your giveaway. (Again, this is not a requirement, but the more we get the word out, the more successful the event will be for us all!)
- Optional: Share this post on your Facebook, Twitter, Google plus and/or write up your own post linking to this post to share with others about the event. This will help us all… the more blogs that sign up for this event, the more successful it will be for all blogs involved!!
Okay, that’s all the deets! If you’re ready to join in on the fun, fill out the form here! After you fill out the form, put your name on the linky below and everyone can see who is participating. :)
We hope look forward to this as much as we are!
My linky keeps disappearing on me, so if it’s not below, please head on over to Mama Chocolate to add your blog name to the list. Sorry for the trouble!
