Today, only days past that celebration I find one of my friends asking for help in funding her series in which three of the projected eight books are written. She does not have the money to do a much needed media blitz. Her series The MacDara Chronicles can be bought on Amazon in eBook form and in print.
Her funding link (click on book name) includes a trailer of her first book in The MacDara Chronicles
I love her series and will be blogging on reviews for her in the coming week, but what touched my heart and linked it to Mother's Day is - A percentage of all book sales will be donated to charities that help those in foster care. As someone who went through the foster-care system before being adopted, I have a great concern for those who are seeking their forever home, and appreciation for those who help them find it. Sales of this series allow me to give back to the system that did so much for me, and to do something good for all those kids who don't yet know the love and security of a family they can call their own.
When I asked her about her heart for giving to this charity, her candid answer is beautiful.
My heart really goes out to kids who don't have a family to call their own yet. Some never will, and that hurts most of all, so anything I can do to make things a little better for them, I'll do gladly. I was one of the blessed ones - my adoptive parents were amazing; it was like growing up with Ozzie and Harriet as parents.
