This November and December I saw something that made me want to do more than just put some money into a bucket at the local grocery story, or pick out a present for a family in need. A non-profit company, Family Humanitarian Experience (FHe) set out to raise $18,000 to purchase equipment that will allow them to drill wells in remote areas of the world that are out of reach of the larger well drilling trucks. This video shows what they want to do in an amazing way, please take a few minutes to watch it.
I decided that in the Month of January (Poverty Awareness Month) I'm going to donate 100% of what I make off my book sales to help them get their well drilling equipment. If we can get this equipment, it will quickly reduce the cost of getting clean drinking water to remote areas.
The cost per person on average to get clean drinking water for their entire lifetime is less than $0.75. When you purchase one of my Kindle books at regular price, I earn about $0.75. What this means is for each book of mine that you purchase in the month of January, you will be getting a great book, but you will also be providing clean drinking water for a person for his/her entire lifetime. What a gift!
Please help spread the word to anyone you know who might like a good read, and if you're not interested in the kinds of books I write, you can also go directly to the website (here) and make a donation. I have worked with this company for several years and one of the great things with this company is that the owners/founders volunteer their time so 100% of what we raise will go directly to the project.
I don't know what will happen in January, but I think we can make up the difference if we spread the word and work together. So Share, Tweet, Post, Re-post, and like.
Thank you so much!
