I've been fortunate in my life to have had the time, opportunities, and resources to work with so many great people who are giving back.
Two groups I've worked with:
Those folks do amazing work. If you aren't already involved, today would be a great day to start. I could (and have and will) go on at length about the great things they've done, the lives they've helped better.
I've also had the honor to work with some book folks on some charity anthologies.
OFF THE RECORD is an anthology with proceeds being donated to two Children's Literacy charities -- in the UK to National Literacy Trust and in the US to Children's Literacy Initiative. Honored to have been asked to contribute to their first and second volumes.
THE LOST CHILDREN is an anthology with proceeds to benefit two children's causes: PROTECT: The National Association to Protect Children and Children 1st Scotland. I'm privileged to have a story for their second volume.
These organizations, and thousands like them, have already done the difficult part -- the organizing, the details. I'm grateful for the opportunities they provide for all us to do a little something, whatever and wherever that is, to help.
