Happy surprise, second Monday blog post everyone!
For the last three years, I’ve been using my book and other work to raise money for charity. Because this is something I care about a lot, I wanted to make sure to do it again this year. And like last year, there’s a whole group of us that’ll be using our creative work(s) to raise money for charity. We’ve been doing this because not only does this matter to each of us involved, but also because it’s a nice reminder that the impact your work can make spreads far beyond you. Hell, if the bulk of my book sales each year come during this drive, I’m okay with that.
I’ll keep my leadup short, as I want anyone reading this to scroll down and support one of the creators below to help us raise money. That said, here are the pertinent things you need to know.
- When is it happening: December 8th-14th
- What charity are you supporting: The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention
- How can I help: There are a few things you can do —
- How much are you donating: Each creator will be making their own donation. We’ll be totaling as a group and I’ll announce final results at the end of the event.
If you want to support this drive and get some cool stuff, take a look at one of the creators below.
Haus of Clover
Pin shop Haus of Clover will be donating $2 per purchase of every pin of a new design that’ll be launched on December 8th. The Keep Going design is live now on the Haus of Clover Etsy page. For a close of view of the pin…well, here’s a picture.
Author Rebecca MacCeile will be donating $1 per each copy of any of her books sold from her website, RebeccasBookshop. Additionally, each person to download a copy of her newest book, Eleanor’s Library, on Booksprout will generate a $5 donation.
Me! (Tim Baughman)
Like previous years, I’ll be donating all proceeds from my book, An Epilogue to Innocence, during the charity drive. Additionally, all proceeds from my Patreon for the month of December will also be donated.
