As many of you know, I am very passionate about Relay For Life and the fight against cancer. Cancer has affected my family multiple times. Not only have I lost loved ones, but I know many people that have also suffered the pain of this horrible disease. Cancer is a scary thing and, let’s just be honest, it sucks.
For this reason, I created my own Relay For Life Team – FINDING HOPE. My hometown’s event is scheduled for May, so the planning has already began. The theme this year is “Once upon a cure.” Each Relay Team has to create their own theme from the main one.
Perhaps it’s the writer in me or the awesome book club I’m in, but the first thing I thought about when I heard this was reading. So, from the main theme, I came up with this:
“Fighting cancer, one story at a time.”
Now, this is where today’s blog title comes in. I need YOUR help to make my ideas come to fruition. If you are able to and if you are willing, please donate a copy of your book to the cause. Donate as many as you would like! Or perhaps you adore someone else’s work so much that you would like to donate their books. You can even donate book swag! There are no restrictions, other than it needing to be a physical donation.
At the Relay For Life event, I would like to have a table filled with books written by Indie Authors. I want that table piled with awesomeness! I want your book and your name displayed on a beautiful banner that will decorate my tent. People will be able to purchase the items and every cent will go to Relay For Life. Every donation will contribute to the fight against cancer, the fight to find a cure.
If you can’t tell, I’m really excited about this event, and I have big hopes for its success. It will be huge, no doubt. And I would love nothing more than to be “surrounded” by my friends. Don’t worry, I will keep everyone posted on the progress and will definitely share pictures!
One final note. Please do not feel obligated to donate. I know not everyone can. And I truly want this project to be a labor of love <3. Nothing more and nothing less. If you are able to donate, please shoot me a message and I’ll send you the details.
Until next time………love & blessings!
