by Mike on June 24, 2010

Welcome to GRABBBR! What is GRABBBR, (pronounced “grabber”)? It stands for Giveaway Reaching All Bible Based Blog Readers

If you are a personal finance enthusiast, you probably already know that there are TONS of quality bloggers out there offering stellar financial advice. What you may or may not know is over the last few years, there has been a rise in the sub niche of Bible based personal finance bloggers. These bloggers base their financial advice and principals on the fundamental truths found in the Bible. Regardless of religious affiliation, many have been helped by these bloggers as the Bible advocates core personal finance principles such as giving, savings, and diversification to name a few.

Several of us have partnered together to bring you a giveaway offering cash, prizes, and services! Anyone is eligible to enter and win, regardless of religion, race, or creed (see formal eligibility requirements in the official rules section).
