Today I have a great example of a Win — Win project!
There are over 60 newish women writers, who have each written a story for a new book.
These are true stories, intended to encourage other moms.
This book is brand new, out this past Monday, 8/10/2015.
All the money made by the sale of this book, will be used to build a clean water well in Kenya!
The well will be built at the site of a home for single moms in Kenya, called Mercy House.
Pretty cool, right?
Moms and Dads who read the book, will be encouraged and find lots of tips about raising kids.
So did I say Win — Win?
I guess I should have said, Win — Win — Win — Win,
and if you add in all the kids who will benefit from the well,
and from their parents learning great tips from the book,
then it will be literally thousands of Wins!
I am in on this Win too, because I wrote one of the stories,
“Each Child is Unique”, which starts on page 100 of the book.
I hope you get to read my story about my two kids.
So, if you want to order a book,
or read more of the details about the well,
go to their official site The Mom Quilt.
This official site belongs to Paula Rollo,
who is one of the moms who thought up this great book idea!
The credit also goes to Becky Mansfield and Jodi Kern Durr.
All three of them worked hard to get this book done.
They chose the stories from all those submitted,
and they compiled all the stories into a book,
then Brannan Sirratt did the editing.
Monday, August 10 it went on sale!
The book is available in e-book form only (PDF format).
It costs $9.99, but you can increase that amount when you order,
if you want to donate more to the well project.
They need $40,000 to build the well.
After 2 days, they reached $2,000,
so they only need 38 more days like that!
Remember it’s to help single moms and their kids living in Kenya at Mercy House.
Right now their water is being trucked in, so they really need this well.
So buy a book, and add a donation too if you can.
You can pay by Paypal or credit card.
All of the moms who contributed to this book thank you for your purchase.
