Hello, I'm delurking for a moment to share some information about an online charity event:
50 veteran authors from around the country have banded together to raise money for veterans' charities, pledging 100% of their royalties on November 11, 2014 to the charity of their choice.
Veterans from each service branch and every conflict period, from Vietnam to even one author deployed to Afghanistan at this moment, are pledging their royalties to charities helping Veterans. In most cases, these are organizations that assisted the authors personally and they are trying their best to give back.
The ultimate goal of this event is to raise at least $10,000 for the 15+ veterans charities they're supporting. If you aren't interested in any of the books available, they have a page set up ranking the money raised for each charity and spotlighting bonus donations. Whether you contribute to the best performing or the least performing, either way your donation will be put to good use!
This diverse collection of works includes New York Times and USA Today Bestsellers and covers most genres. From romance to action-adventure and everything in between, there's something for every The complete collection of participating books and charities can be found here:
