Times are tough, times are hard. Nobody’s denying it. Certainly not me.
In this tough–okay, scary–economy charities are taking the hit hardest of all. Charities with missions focused on our four-legged friends are taking a particularly painful hit.
In keeping with the holiday spirit of counting my many blessings, and celebrating the publication of EveryÂ Breath You Take…, my latest Harlequin Blaze release, I’d like to give ten of you a complimentary copy of Vanquished.
The first ten readers who make a donation of at least $10 to the ASPCA will receive a free signed copy of Vanquished, the first of my “Men of Roxbury House” trilogy. My wonderful publisher, Medallion Press is donating the books, and I’ll be covering the cost of shipping.
Founded in 1866, The “A” is the first humane organization not only in this country but in the Western Hemisphere. $100 will cover the rescue, shelter, feeding and care of a formerly stray, homeless, or rescued dog or cat for a month. That’s $10 from ten people–ten of you.
In addition to donating online, you can snail mail your check to:
The ASPCA, 424 East 92nd Street, New York, NY 10128-6804
For verification, I’ll need you to send me three things: 1) a photocopy of your donation receipt, 2) the name ofÂ the person to whom you’d like the book inscribed, and 3) an address label with your snail mail address toÂ PO Box 1344, New York, NY 10276. Once we reach our $100 goal, I’ll post the glad tidyings here along with the first names, surname initial and home state of the ten generous souls who stepped up to the plate first.
My goal isn’t to save the world, or even the whole Companion Animal Kingdom, much as I’d love to do just that. But not being able to save everyone and everything shouldn’t be our collective excuse for saving no one and nothing. None of us can save the world, at least not all on our own. But each of us has the power, the goodness, resident within us to save our small corner of it.
Peace and Love, Purring and Fetching,
