I received this letter on my Goodreads account and asked the author for permission to share it so that any of my fellow authors might consider joining in.
|message:||I was browsing book giveaways on good reads and I noticed your book. I have added it to my want to read list 🙂
I founded a small non profit organization which has a couple different literacy programs. One program centers around adult recovering patients in local hospitals. After I read a book I lend them to patients in the hospitals and before they go home they give then back to the nurse and the process continues on to other patients. (This is what I do with books that I win)
The second program promotes literacy in regards to lower income at-risk youth. We help to provide free books to children-teenagers-most of these families can not afford to purchase books for their children.
We are asking authors if they would donate copies of their books to our charitable organization. We can use signed books for fundraising (to help our youth program-100% of any funds raised go into the program as we have very low over head and all of our organizations members volunteer their time and are not paid) OR we can use unsigned copies of books to use for our adult hospital program. Would you consider donating to this worthy cause?
Every donation to our programs are 100% tax deductible and we can send a receipt for any donation that is made.
If you have any author friends who might be interested in donating please let them know about us. I offer special thanks on our facebook page for donations as well as a link in which people can see the generosity of the author and possibly purchase their books! I am also willing to read any copies sent to me personally and post a review (if the author requests that I do-some reviews take a little longer than others depending on how many books are donated in which a review is requested-but I promise to write a review if requested with the donation)
Any donated books can be sent to:
Thank you for your time
