UPDATE 1/1/13: I sold 72 books in December and have now given a nice even $100 to First Book plus another $20 anonymous donation which equates to 48 new books for kids in need. I didn’t quite make my goal of $300 – but still made a difference which was entirely the point. Thank you for all your support!
Date(s): December 1-31, 2012
This holiday season, I want to share my love of reading with the community. To do that… for every copy of Blue Violet sold in the month of December, I am donating $1.00 to a charity close to my heart – FIRST BOOK.
First Book provides access to new books for children in need. To date, First Book has distributed more than 100 million books and educational resources to programs and schools serving children from low-income families throughout the United States and Canada.
As a child I was encouraged to grow my passion and love for reading which has allowed me to follow my dream and become an author. Please help me reach my goal to give back to the community and raise $300 (which equates to 120 books) by December 31, 2012 and help make a difference in children’s lives by giving them the opportunity to read and grow.
How can you help?
Buy a copy of Blue Violet. Give a copy of Blue Violet. Tell your friends about the book. Donate directly to First Book.
