Dear friends:

Buy a book. Share the blessings.

I pray this holiday season brings blessings to you and your family. I’ve been reflecting lately on my blessings, and want to share some of what I have with others during this season of giving. One way I can do this is to donate my royalties to a worthy cause.

Through the end of this year, I’ll match all proceeds from the sales of my book, Taming Huck Finn, and donate the entire amount to a local food bank to help them in their mission to feed the hungry.  In the past, I have volunteered at food lines and seen firsthand how a little given in love can go a long way.

If you haven’t had a chance to buy and read this book, now would be a good time. If you’ve read it and enjoyed it, consider giving it as a Christmas gift and you can extend a gift to others. If you know friends who might enjoy it, please spread the word and help me feed the hungry.

I’ll be sending my money to Harvesters, a regional food bank serving NE Kansas and NW Missouri including Kansas City and Topeka. It’s a wonderful organization that provides food and related household products to more than 760 nonprofit agencies including emergency food pantries, community kitchens, homeless shelters, children’s homes and others.

Share your blessings and be blessed this holiday season!
