There are a lot of ways you can show your love for Cybils, from volunteering to helping spread the word via your own blogs and Twitter and such. But one thing we always need more of is MONEY. (Don't we all??)
With Cybils, any money we raise goes straight to absolutely vital costs like buying nice commemorative prizes for our winning authors and illustrators, printing out bookmarks, and mailing stuff out. We always seem to be a bit needy, though, so–here are 4 ways you can help.
- You can always donate directly, and we really, really appreciate it! See that "donate" button on the top of the right sidebar? You could click it. We'd like that.
- You can take out an ad on our blog. To the left of the Donate button, also in the sidebar, is a clickable link that says "advertise with Cybils." If you have a book you'd like to promote, or if you're a publisher who wants to reach an audience of passionate booklovers, Blogads will set you up.
- You can buy Cybils bling. That's right, we have a wide range of items at Cafepress with the nifty Cybils logo on them–t-shirts, tote bags, mugs, and more. A portion of the proceeds will go towards the Cybils prize fund.
- Last but not least, you can buy stuff on Amazon through our affiliate link. Every time you click on the Amazon link for a book in one of our posts, it'll take you to Amazon through our affiliate page, and ANYTHING you buy–books, TVs, private islands, whatever–we'll get a dribble of income. Bigger dribble if you buy a private island, of course. So please keep us in mind when you start your holiday shopping!
