I’ve been trying to do some spring cleaning lately, as I’ll be moving soon. The size of my notebook collection has grown to daunting levels in the last couple of years, and when I contemplate having to move everything to a new home, it’s a bit scary! I love my notebooks, but even I have to sometimes let some go. I like to do random notebook giveaways from time to time, but they almost don’t make a dent. So here’s an idea– please let me know what you think.
I’m going to put together a good sized collection of notebooks, at least 20 notebooks total. Some will be brand new. Some will be samples where I’ve written on a few pages for use in my reviews. Some will be large, some will be small. There will be popular brands like Moleskine included, as well as obscure no-name notebooks. There will be notebooks from different countries. There will be sketchbooks, lined journals, engineering notebooks– all kinds. It will be a surprise random assortment of notebooks, no two alike. You could say that whoever gets it will be an INSTANT NOTEBOOK ADDICT.
But this is not just going to be a giveaway, as this would be quite a valuable assortment– at least $100 worth at retail, probably more. So I thought I’d auction it off on EBay, and donate the proceeds to a charity that helps provide school supplies to disadvantaged children– the Kids in Need Foundation would be a possible recipient.
What do you think? Would you be willing to bid on an “INSTANT ADDICT” mystery grab bag of notebooks to benefit a good cause? If enough people say yes, stay tuned for more details soon!
