First Ever Bitcoin For Kids Book Series Launched With Bitcoin Giveaway Contest

Ponn Sabra and her three daughters release a four-book “Bitcoin for Kids” book series about the digital currency and giving away 0.25* Bitcoin (approx. $87). By making Bitcoin easy and fun to use, they hope to motivate kids and moms to try it out, further pushing Bitcoin to the mainstream.

Los Angeles, CA, November 15, 2013 – Best-selling authors and bloggers Ponn, JuJu (13), GiGi (12) and JoJo (10) Sabra today announce the “Bitcoin for Kids” Series to motivate moms and kids to use Bitcoin. Bitcoin is ideal for kids. The digital currency can be sent by anyone of any age, in any amount, to anywhere in the world, anytime of the day or night. Using Bitcoin is as easy as sending an email or SMS/text message.

Bitcoin has been maligned and celebrated in recent news. The story of a man from Norway who bought $27 in Bitcoin four years ago that is worth over $850,000 today captured a lot of positive attention. The Sabra’s hope stories like this and those in their books will help build more awareness and interest in Bitcoin. “We want to help make Bitcoin more mainstream by showing families how easy and fun it is to use,” said Ponn Sabra.

The Sabra’s created the website bitkidz.com, the first to teach Kids about Bitcoin. “We created the first Bitcoin-for-kids website, the only Bitcoin forum for kids, and our book series will be used to teach kids in the classroom and online,” said Ponn Sabra. The Introductory book features the first published case study of kids using Bitcoin.

The Bitcoin for Kids book series includes:

* Bitcoin for Kids Primer: Kids Making Money Online – 12 Inspirational Stories That Will Motivate You To Action!

* Bitcoin for Kids Book 1: Putting Money In Kids’ Hands Today For A Better Tomorrow – No Need For Virtual Worlds and Make-Believe Money

* Bitcoin for Kids Book 2: How To Earn, Save, Spend and Share Bitcoin – Easy, Fast and Fun Step-by-Step Tutorials

* Bitcoin for Kids Book 3: Wise Words From the World’s Best Bitcoiners – Bitcoin Breaks The Boundaries Of Age And Much More

The books can be purchased with Bitcoin (or with fiat currency through Amazon) and a link for the FREE Primer can be found at bitkidz.com/bitcoinforkids

In the process of educating kids, they also hope to counter common myths about Bitcoin. “People stay away from Bitcoin because they either believe it’s too volatile, attracts criminals, or, they think Bitcoin is so high-tech that the average person won’t be able to understand it.” said Sabra. “While there’s some truth to those extreme statements, by writing a book series by kids for kids we’re demonstrating that if kids understand Bitcoin, so can others!”

Bitcoin* Giveaway Contest

The Sabra’s are hosting a Bitcoin Giveaway Contest during the first week of the book series release, November 13 – 19, 2013. The Grand Prize will be 0.25* BTC and a digital copy of The “Bitcoin For Kids Trilogy” ($7.97 value). To encourage families to have fun watching the Bitcoin market value, the *Grand Prize will be based on November 19th’s average rate to be no less than $70 or the full amount of 0.25 BTC transferred to the winner’s Bitcoin wallet. Current rate: $87. Enter to Win at bitkidz.com/bitcoingiveaway

Generous bitcoiners are welcomed to donate to increase the 0.25* BTC Grand Prize at Bitcoin address: 18FU644xiZ7TAEhVGKPDEhmuYvgnmNiPge

Second Prize: $50 gift card from Gyft.com

Why use Bitcoin? The Sabra’s say because it is digital, practical, cheaper, safer, more secure and global. “Kids and moms need to learn how to use it now! The sooner the better, and the more lucrative because the value keeps climbing. There is opportunity in being an early adopter.”

Even if Bitcoin drops in value, the Sabra’s think there are lessons. “The math behind it is amazing! Bitcoin helps kids learn economics, international finance, money markets (watching values go up and down), budgeting, spending versus saving, computers, technology, the Internet and much more. These crucial life lessons are often not taught in school or home today. My girls’ lives have forever changed since Bitcoin was introduced to us, and we want to impart this excitement to other families as well.”

The Bitcoin for Kids series was recently selected as curriculum at The Bitcoin Academy and the Bitcoin Bootcamp after school program. The Sabra’s, currently traveling overseas, conducted months of research and interviewed kids already using Bitcoin for the Primer. In their research, they found kids who have made significant returns using Bitcoin. The most interesting point shared by each kid was that Bitcoin has changed their lives.

The Sabra’s are available for interviews via Skype, Google-Hangout, or email.

10% of proceeds from BitKidz.com and the “Bitcion for Kids” book series will be donated to SeansOutpost.com (5%) and TheBitcoinAcademy.com (5%). An additional 5% during the month of November 2013 will to donated to the Philippines Typhoon victims via World Food Program.

About Ponn Sabra and the Sabra Sisters

Varsity Tutors Selects Monthly Scholarship Winners for 2013 College Scholarship Contest

Varsity Tutors, the premier private tutoring and test prep service, has chosen four more winners in its 2013 monthly college scholarship contest.

St. Louis, MO, July 17, 2013 – Varsity Tutors, the premier private tutoring and test prep service, has chosen four more winners in its 2013 monthly college scholarship contest. With 2,000 tutors and 80 employees operating in 25 major metropolitan U.S. cities, Varsity Tutors offers the merit-based scholarship program to support students from all backgrounds in reaching their college goals. The company has selected and awarded a $1,000 scholarship prize to one student each month in March, April, May, and June.

The Varsity Tutors College Scholarship Contest gives students nationwide a monthly opportunity to submit an essay in response to a unique prompt to compete for a $1,000 scholarship to any accredited, post-secondary institution of their choice. Once entries are approved by the company, they are published on the Varsity Tutors website and students are encouraged to share their essays via social media to acquire as many votes for their submissions as they can; Facebook likes, Tweets, and Google+ shares are all valid forms of voting. The top five submissions with the most votes by the end of the voting period are then reviewed by the company, one of which is selected as the final winner. The entry period lasts from the 1st–15th of every month followed by the voting period, which takes place from the 16th through the end of the month.

Brandon Boyd (Martinez, Calif.), Samantha Swift (Largo, Fla.), Alexandra Benton (Lehigh Acres, Fla.), and Sarah Campbell (Ocean Springs, Miss.) were selected as the March, April, May, and June winners, respectively. Hundreds of students have entered the Varsity Tutors College Scholarship Contest this year, and the number of entrants per month has consistently increased. The organization’s CEO and founder, Chuck Cohn, is honored to be able to aid so many students in financing their college educations.

“It’s always disappointing to hear when a student cannot attend the college of their choice just due to financial limitations,” Cohn says. “Our mission is to help students advance their educational goals, and many of those personal goals include attending college. We are proud to have created a scholarship that will help talented students attend college.”
