wildflowers for sandy

wildflowers for sandy
In 2005, Hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans and many other towns in the Gulf Coast area.  The world slowly awoke to the truth about how environmental moments reshape the way we live.  I've long been dedicated to understanding my own responsibilities as a human living in nature.  This influence shows up in wildflowers, and though the book is fiction, it contains a message based in the reality I've experienced as more and more natural disasters occur around the world.

Hurricane Sandy has become our most recent devastating weather event, sending the East Coast into a state of emergency.  Today they're surveying the landscape to assess the damage, which is already being called historic.  There are teams of people who will study this storm in order to discover the science behind the moment, and many will later offer us restoration ideas.  For now, though, people need help, and I'm hoping you'll join me in a wildflowers for Sandy donation drive.

From now until Saturday November 3rd, I'll be donating 50% of all the profits from book sales to the American Red Cross, whose website this morning says, Your financial donation can make the biggest and most immediate impact.

If you haven't yet purchased wildflowers, now is the time.  The wildflowers for sandy donation will be calculated from all sales on Amazon/CreateSpace, Kindle, Nook, and Smashwords.  If you've already bought the book, consider buying one to give as a gift for the upcoming holidays.  It's classified as a young adult novel, but written for all ages.  You could also donate the copy to a local literacy program or library.

Please use the links in the left hand column to purchase, especially for a print edition from Amazon.  The link takes you to my CreateSpace store within Amazon, which is designed to ease the transaction for the buyer and, due to a lower fee schedule, will allow me to make a larger donation.  I hope you'll also join me in posting this on Facebook, Twitter, or linking back to rmccormackwrites in your blog or email.

In times like these, I'm most touched by people pulling together to create hope and share love.  I'd be honored if you showed your support and offered donation through wildflowers for sandy.  I'll report back on Saturday to let you know the results.  Thank you!
