2014 TGIO Party!

CC_logoWe’re FIVE days until the end of November! So keep writing! I’m still a good… a lot of words away from the finish line… as you can see, but I’m already looking forward to our TGIO Party happening the weekend after November.

For those wondering what in the world does TGIO stand for, TGIO Party is The Thank Gosh It’s Over (TGIO) Party. The TGIO party is a tim
e honored NaNoWriMo tradition. The TGIO party is the perfect place for us to share our NaNoWriMo experiences, celebrate our successes and failures, and connect with our compatriot WriMos who’ve also survived the  month long suffering of writing our beloved novels.

Here are the details for this year’s party.

Pitch In!

Pitch-InLast year using our Chip-In Widget, we raised $140 for our awesome region, which all went to funding our Kick-Off Party and raffle prizes!

So thanks again for everyone who chipped in last year!

Because of last year’s success, we are bringing back the “Pitch-in” widget to fundraise for the Region’s events. Since “Chip-In!” is no longer available, we’re asking you to “Pitch-In” instead! Pitch-In works just like Chip-in. Click on the “Pitch-In!” link on the widget in this post or on top of our left sidebar and donate. The page will eventually take you to Paypal where you will complete your transactions.

Also every $10 donation will qualify you for an additional raffle ticket for the Halo Raffle to be drawn at the TGIO party, which includes a Raffle Prize of an iPad Mini and more!

So Pitch-in and Lucky will do a happy dance!

NOTE: Donating to Pitch-in will NOT give you a Halo over your name on the NaNoWriMo site. You only get a Halo when you donate through NaNoWriMo’s Donation Station or win a Halo in an Adopt-A-Day challenge.
