I’ve been asked to join Romance Designs in the Amazon Honor System Donation Campaign, with all monies being donated to the American Red Cross to help the victims of Hurricane Katrina. In lieu of my monthly contest, I’ll be donating autographed copies of my books that will be entered in a random drawing; the incentive being for web visitors to donate in order to be entered.
While I would like to think that everyone out there is doing whatever they can to help ease the devastation, perhaps this might make donating a little more appealing to some, as in their giving for a good cause they also have a chance to receive something in return.
Books I’m donating include: MACUMBA / Paranormal Thriller FULL CIRCLE / Romantic Suspense UNRESTRAINED / Poetry Anthology SHADOWS OF MY SOUL / Poetry
Information about this campaign can be found at the following link: Amazon Honor System Relief Campaign
The American People are quick to point fingers and place blame in any situation, but even more so it seems, when it comes to how local and government officials respond to disaster situations. If we can focus our attention and energy on how to help the victims, who are suffering mentally, physically, financially and spiritually, instead of getting caught up in the media frenzy, perhaps we can make a difference where it matters most.
Below is a list of organizations who are accepting donations for the victims of Hurricane Katrina. Any amount you can give, no matter how big or small will be of help and will make a difference.
