December 2 is Giving Tuesday. While I think everyone should decide for himself or herself whether to participate or not, I do have a couple of ideas that combine two good purposes: Giving the gift of reading for the holidays (or a birthday even) while doing something good for others. How? Both of these books' proceeds will be donated.
Write to Meow Anthology
100% of the proceeds from the sale of the Write To Meow anthology will support the work of Almost Home Animal Shelter, a no-kill animal haven in Michigan, as they save cats from a fate that is death.
This book is a collection of cat-themed stories and poems (submitted by many different authors). This would be appropriate for younger readers too as all submissions are uplifting and inspiring.
Thirteen Stories By Us
Since not everyone is into warm, fuzzy stuff, Thirteen Stories By Us makes a great gift option for those who love suspense and mystery (or just plain creepy stuff). It's available in Kindle format or paperback.
These thirteen stories have been written by eleven authors who came together in a common goal—to give assistance to two ladies we like and admire. All profits from the sale of this book will go to Lyn Lomasi and Lisa Mason who, due to a series of unfortunate circumstances, have found themselves on the edge of homelessness.
