I wanted to honor our military and their families and the sacrifices they make. In part, that was what inspired Bobby Carrera from THE LOST. I wanted to try and show some of the struggles that our wounded vets go through when they come home. So today’s free read is from THE LOST and features Bobby as she deals with her wounds and what Adam is making her feel in so many ways.
Even after I wrote THE LOST, I felt like I could do more and because of that, I donated part of my royalties from THE CLAIMED to HOPE FOR THE WARRIORS, a non-profit group that helps wounded veterans and their families. I just got an e-mail from them about their participation in the Newman’s Own Foundation challenge. Here’s what HOPE FOR THE WARRIORS said:
Hope For The Warriors® was chosen by Newman’s Own Foundation to participate in their first ever Crowdrise challenge: Honoring Those Who Serve Challenge. The prize? Whichever nonprofit receives the most donations will also receive $75,000 from Newman’s Own Foundation. What would it mean to win? $75,000 could fund three additional Above & Beyond Seminars , directly supporting more than 75 post-9/11 combat service members and their families as they transition into new civilian careers.
So I’m helping them to meet their goal! Please take a moment to possibly offer up a donation to help by clicking here or using the widget below. Join the team or share this post to help this wonderful organization meet its goal.
