Today is #GivingTuesday, a day when we are all encouraged to donate to charity. There are many options out there for causes to support. So many of our neighbors need our help. And one rather famous Southerner is offering a pretty exciting reward for joining her efforts.

 

Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library is the Queen of Country Music’s passion project. Founded in 1995, as a tribute to her father who couldn’t read, the Imagination Library mails free books once a month to children from birth until age 5, regardless of their family’s income. Parton is truly dedicated in cultivating a love of reading in children across the country as well as in Canada, the U.K., and Australia.

 

So today, as you are deciding which causes to champion this year, Parton is offering a little incentive to give. She’s giving you the chance of a lifetime. In partnership with charity site Omaze, Parton is offering one lucky donor (and a friend) the chance to meet her at Dollywood’s season opening. As the description on the site reads, “It’s time to skip out of your 9-5, because you and a friend are off to Tennessee to visit the awesome amusement park and home to all things Dolly.”

If you win, Dolly will shower you with Southern hospitality as she gives you a tour of your very own penthouse suite at the DreamMore Resort. Of course, you’ll get your photo snapped with Dolly to share with all of your friends and social media followers. Then, you’re Dolly’s VIP at the park. You and your lucky pal will enjoy meals, spa treatments, show tickets, and front-of-the-line access to all the rides, all courtesy of the lady in charge. Your flights to Knoxville are handled as well.

 

You may not win the grand prize, but every donation goes to help children foster a love of reading, a priceless gift! And hey, if you donate $100, you will be sent a copy of Dolly Parton’s Dumplin’ soundtrack on CD!
