Official full press release on Gift Basket!!

Jacob Marley’s spirit says “Astak Helps the HUNGRY While Making Gift-Giving EZ”
2009 is “The Year of The Ebook”. Astak is offering the 5-inch EZ Reader Pocket PRO special edition: “A Christmas Carol Gift Pack” on www.astak.com/charity! In addition, they are donating $15 from every Gift Pack sold to Second Harvest Food Bank to buy food at the most critical time of year for those less fortunate!
Astak received so many requests to make the Pocket PRO easy to gift. At the same time, we were planning to raise funds for Second Harvest Food Bank. We pulled everything together in the spirit of giving and came up with quite a great way to help others.


San Jose, California (PRWEB) November 24, 2009 -- Astak announced that this holiday season, the company is offering the 5-inch Pocket PRO special edition “A Christmas Carol” Gift Basket on www.astak.com/charity. Astak will donate $15 of the proceeds from each gift basket to the Second Harvest Food Bank. Consumers have the opportunity to give something to help those less fortunate while also giving a basket of joy that will help the receiving person “Keep Christmas in Their Hearts All Year Round”!


Astak 5-inch EZ Reader Pocket PRO Gift PackThe Pocket PRO is lighter (under 6 ounces), faster (Epson controller with 400MHz processor), more convenient (5 inch), and more full-featured (20 formats, user-replaceable rechargeable battery, Text-To-Speech, leather case, memory expansion to hold 8,000 eBooks and MP3 music) eBook Reader and packaged it in a keepsake basket with: Mighty Bright eBook Reader light, 2GB card pre-loaded with 230 Holiday Classics (everything from the immortal “A Christmas Carol, thru 150 Christmas stories for the entire family, to old time holiday recipes). Astak added a full TIN of Starbucks Mints, a three-pack of Starbucks VIA coffee, a coupon for 50% rewards dollars on the first ten eBooks purchased from Books On Board (our partner), all the holiday wrappings and packaging, and a personalized Holiday Card that holds the buyer’s 50 word personal message! What a way to give something that will be treasured all year by the recipient!!

But, Astak has remembered the real message of A Christmas Carol. They are donating $15 from every Gift Pack sold to Second Harvest Food Bank to buy food at the most critical time of year for those less fortunate!! Jacob Marley’s spirit said: “Kindness, mercy, benevolence… THAT was my business” There has never been a more dire time for feeding those in need!! Astak welcomes other eBook Reader manufacturers to please join us!! Astak hope to contribute $4,500!!

Robert Barry, Astak’s Director of Business Development said: “Astak received so many requests to make the Pocket PRO easy to gift and include eBooks and a light and much more. At the same time, we were planning to raise funds for Second Harvest Food Bank. We talked with our partners (Books On Board and Mighty Bright) and they had some great ideas too. Then the local Starbucks Coffee wanted to help. Our staff pulled everything together in the spirit of giving and came up with quite a great way to help others.”

This special and festive gift pack will end December 11 (to allow time to ship). Everyone can do good for those less fortunate and “Keep Christmas in your Heart all Year Around” by visiting www.astak.com/charity and purchasing “A Christmas Carol Pack” for $239.

I wish I had waited and ordered this instead. Mine came with Halloween stories which I have no use for.
I'm tempted to return mine and order this instead!

Maybe you can just send them $40 instead and ask for the SD card and goodies.

That would be ok too, except I accidentally ordered the wrong color (blue) and it doesn't match my Pontiak Aztek (maroon). ;-)

I can live with the color difference if I HAVE to, but it seems a waste to have all those Halloween stories that I'll never read taking up space. I know, I can delete them, but if I'm the same way with ebooks that I am with print books, they will never leave.

Just move them all, over to your computer.
There is nothing special about the files. Copy them back and forth as needed.

That's what I did with the 300 classic ebooks they sent along with the Halloween stories.
