The weather at the Project Liberty book signing and walkathon was laughable – sunny and 55 until the event started, then the temperature plummeted and the rain began. Until we finally packed it in an hour early. Then the sun came back.
Despite the pesky weather, the walkathon went on. My son and his friend were among a handful of walkers who pressed on in the freezing rain. I sold books to people huddled under the pavilion in a vain attempt to stay dry and warm, and I met some awesome people in the process.
The Project Liberty team is amazing – they have a heart for God and a passion to make a difference. They inspired me more than words can say.
I sold more books than I thought I would, given the conditions. Still, I’d like to raise just a bit more money for Project Liberty. On average, it costs between $100 – $500 to save one child from trafficking.
So I’m willing to donate 10 more books for the cause to see if we can save one more child.
Here’s how to get your autographed copy of Throwaway or Suddenly a Spy:
1) Email me via the “Contact Me” link on this blog or on Facebook – tell me you’d like an autographed copy and which of the two books you’d like.
2) Donate at least $15 to Project Liberty within the next three days. (There’s a PayPal link towards the bottom of their website.)
3) Forward me a copy of your receipt, along with the name you’d like me to make the autograph to and the address you want the book mailed to. If you don’t want to forward your receipt, I can verify the gift through Project Liberty. I’ll still need your name and address, though.
I’ll take the first 10 readers to respond. One book per reader. I pay shipping. If you email me after I have my 10, I’ll put you on a backup list in case someone doesn’t come through with their donation.
As always, many thanks to my wonderful readers. You guys bring me more joy than you probably realize!
