Dear readers, friends, family, neighbors, and colleagues,
Each year since I've been publishing my Eternity Springs series, I've done a March Madness promotion to publicize my series. This year I have a more important reason for continuing the project:
Meet The Gift, the newest angel in the March family sky. The Gift was born in January, and like 30,000 other people in America is living with cystic fibrosis.
This year, my March(ing) Madness Giveaway is dedicated to raising funds to support the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation on behalf of children like the The Gift.
What you need to know:
The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is the world's leader in the search for a cure for cystic fibrosis. It has a four out of four star rating from Charity Navigator. It's a great charity!
Virtually every approved CF drug available today was made possible with CF Foundation support. Cystic fibrosis research gets little federal funding compared to other diseases and donations REALLY matter.
Because of The Gift's particular mutations, no drug exists today that will treat the underlying cause of CF in our little guy--but they are in the pipeline! Go, researchers, go!
CF Foundation supported research is adding years to the lives of kids like The Gift. When I was young, most CF patients died before entering Kindergarten. Today, half the CF population is over 18. GREAT STRIDES!
But what about the books, you're wondering? How do I win a prize????
For a chance to win one or more of our donated books, all you need to do is join TEAM ETERNITY SPRINGS as a virtual walker for the CF Foundation's Great Strides fundraising walk in Fort Worth on May 21st. That's it.
Of course, I hope you'll make a generous donation--or even a very small donation because they do add up--but that's not a requirement. On the day of the walk, all donated books and prizes will be awarded to members of TEAM ETERNITY SPRINGS. Right now the plan is to do it via a Facebook Live link.
Now, the books. This could/should be so much prettier, but I don't know how to fix it and I figure my time is better spent in other directions. The basic information is here, which is what you need, right?
For the past couple of weeks, I've been reaching out to my author friends asking for book donations. The response has been so gratifying. The list of authors donating books for our giveaway grows daily, but as I write this, here is what you have a chance to win if you join Team Eternity Springs:
