From now until the end of October 2008, you can help change the world in a small way, one book at a time. Go to Orinda Books and purchase a copy of Heroes Arise, my award-winning parable published by KOMENAR, and I’ll donate $10 to the Winter Nights Rotating Family Shelter in Contra Costa County. You get the book, to read or give as a gift. Homeless families and seniors will benefit. Orinda Books is located at 276 Village Square in Orinda, CA. Their telephone number is 925-254-7606. Call first to be sure they have copies in stock. Heroes Arise is now out in trade paperback, $15.95 plus sales tax.
In case you’re not familiar with Winter Nights, here’s some information about them:
To protect homeless families and seniors from winter weather by providing shelter in a clean, safe, and warm environment.
To organize, fund, and operate a program under the auspices of the Interfaith Council of Contra Costa County that will provide temporary nighttime shelter from mid October to the end of April for families with children and elders capable of self care who are experiencing homelessness in Contra Costa County.
KOMENAR Publishing and I used Heroes Arise to raise funds for Winter Nights in October 2007. We were able to deliver $1,100 to this worthy charity. So buy one book, buy two, or whatever. Let’s make a difference together.
