Book bribe

Every year I do two fundraiser walkathons in May -- Grand Rapids' Hunger Walk and the national Great Strides campaign for Cystic Fibrosis. It's hard to ask people to support both so I keep coming up with tricks. I used to bring in cookies to work and offer them for a donation to the hunger walk. Now that I'm retired, I no longer go to the office so this year I've been offering my book as a bribe. A free autographed copy of Laughing for a Living to anyone who'll contribute $25 or more for the Hunger Walk. I've brought in seven contributions that way, edging up people who would have contributed much less. Laughing for a giving!
