The 12 Days of Free Nonprofit Goodies

 

Well, this is just fun, and if you know me at all, you know I'm a sucker for fun! Especially this time of year.

Fundraising consultant Pamela Grow, one of our Little Shop contributors, is launching a really neat-o holiday giveaway today. (Yeah, I said it ... neat-o.) Just go to her 12 Days of Christmas Gifts Nonprofit Giveaways site (turn up the sound for an extra dash of holiday spirit), fill in your name and e-mail address, and that's it. In return, each day between now and Dec. 25, you'll receive "something that will add a new tool to your fundraising arsenal."

And the gifts won't just be coming from Pamela. The line-up of secret Santas includes:

"These folks have generously donated some of their best guidance and advice to make sure that your 2013 rocks! (So … grab them while you can!)," Pamela says. "And the catch? Nada! No strings, 12 gifts — all yours — for FREE! This is my way of giving back at Christmas time by sharing the gifts we have with you."

So, don't dally. This is one list you definitely want to be on! (But don't worry, if you don't sign up right away, you can still access all of the daily gifts through the end of the giveaway.)

You'll also get a subscription to Pamela's weekly Grow Report e-newsletter.
