An Excellent Opportunity!

Remember that "what if?" book I told you about a few days ago?  The one designed to help you plan for the unexpected?  Check out this email I received from the author:

Thank you so much for such a thoughtful review. I'm happy to hear that the book is useful.

Please let me know a 501(c)(3) charity that's dear to you, so I can make a donation of 20% of total website book sale revenues from the next five days (today up through the end of Saturday).

Best wishes,

-Mark Gavagan
How cool is that?! Of course I knew right away which charity I wanted to support - the American Partnership for Eosiniphilic Disorders (www.apfed.org).  This is the organization that supports research for the disorder that Kiddo has.

Many of you commented on my original post that you were interested in these books.  I encourage you to seriously consider making a purchase of either the big binder or the smaller booklet between now and Saturday.  I'd love to be able to channel a bit more funding to APFED in Kiddo's honor!

Serena - No special link to order through. Mark will donate 20% of ALL internet sales between now and Saturday. I'm so grateful to him for offering this!

Ok, great. just didn't know if you had an affiliate link through amazon or something...thought I would give credit to you and the cause.

That's a creative way for an author to recognize a thoughtful review. I've never heard of that before.
