Charities and authors many times go together like Brenda Novak’s Diabetes Auction, Debbie Macomber’s Warm America, David Baldacci’s Feeding Body and Mind, Romance Writers of America’s ProLiteracy Worldwide and Romantic Times Book Review’s SOS America, Inc.
Yesterday I participated in the local PKD (Polycystic Kidney Disease) Walk. It was only two miles, but it was really a show of solidarity against a disease that strikes millions. I was walking for my brother-in-law and my nephew, who both have PKD. PKD is a hereditary disease that causes cysts to form in the kidneys making a kidney transplant eventually necessary.
While I did the Cancer Relay for Life this summer (my mom died of lung cancer in March), I was also thinking about the many author charities that I don’t know about even though I read about some on Twitter and Facebook.
So, here’s your chance. Please post the charity you support and add a link to it. Let other’s know what’s dear to your heart.
And just for naming a charity, I’ll pick a winner to receive a set of five new books that I have received (all different genres).
