Writing for Purpose…Giving to Charity

A few months ago, I wrote a short “booklet” in ebook form in which I donated to my favorite non profit. It was the best feeling in the world to hand it over and let them use it as a fundraiser, or however they see fit.

Since then, I have developed a strong urge to continue to write for charity. I think it’s such a cool way for writers to contribute to a cause…hence the saying I love to use..Drop by drop we fill the pot!

I think it is awesome that writers can link their stories with something very close and personal to their hearts, which makes the giving so meaningful and important.

I was recently followed on Twitter by a fellow Minnesotan author Jenna -Lynne Duncan. I have not yet read her novel Hurricane, but on her Twitter page it says she donates a % of sales to Habitat for Humanity in New Orleans. How awesome is that?



Thanks for the follow Jenna….Best of luck to you in your future endeavors…Drop by drop YOU continue to fill the pot!!!!!! HooRaY
