I’m not going to go into detail about my personal motivations for donating to this particular charity. Just about everyone has been affected by cancer in some way or another during their lifetime, whether it be through the loss of a friend, family member, or staring cancer and our own mortality in the face.
It doesn’t take words to evoke a sense of how serious a disease this is, and words can’t take away the pain of losing someone to this disease, but words can help fight the battle against cancer, through prevention, spreading awareness, and, in the event that you are a writer, editor, or another participant in the professional writing community, by donating proceeds to a worthy cause. The great thing about this is that when one person decides they want to donate proceeds from a work of art to a worthy organization, it extends participation to the audience
But you don’t have to buy my book to participate. Take some time to think about it, and if reading my book doesn’t appeal to you, just donate $10 to a worthy cause, not just the American Cancer Society, but any worthy cause. Anything from supporting your local library to raising awareness about AIDS. Find something you’re passionate about and make it happen!
