Outskirts Press "World Animal Remembrance Month" Celebration
Team Fundraising Goal: $5,000.00
|Total Number of Gifts: 1|
|Total Value of Gifts: $1,000.00|
September is World Animal Remembrance Month, a time for all of us to remember and honor the memory of our passed animal friends. As human beings, we have an obligation to respect and care for all animals on our planet; and as authors, we have a special ability to pay tribute to our furry (and sometimes not-so-furry) friends through the written word.
Outskirts Press authors are a particularly animal-loving bunch, as demonstrated by two of our recent 1st-Place winners in the Colorado Independent Publishers Association EVVY Awards.
Ellen Deery Freeman, author of 1st-Place EVVY Winner "Just George", has rescued countless animals over the years. As a retired science teacher, her classroom always housed live animals. "Just George" is the true story of a injured dog Ellen rescued from the side of a highway and his struggles to overcome fears brought on by past abuse in his search for his "forever home." Ms. Freeman is donating 10% of the profit from "Just George" to the current management at Hampton County Animal Shelter in Varnville, South Carolina.
Marie-Yolaine Williams, author of 1st-Place Winner "Old Dog, New Tricks", owns two senior dogs, Fenster and Keaton, both of whom were rescued. She wrote the "Shelter Dog Series" in hopes that it will encourage people to adopt dogs from shelters and consider dogs that are frequently overlooked by adopters. Not only is "Old Dog, New Tricks" a heart-warming children's "tail" with an important message, but Ms. Williams shares valuable information about how young readers (and their parents) can become more responsible, animal-loving occupants on our planet. Marie-Yolaine Williams is also donating a percentage of her royalties for "Old Dog, New Tricks," in this case to Lifeline Animal Project and Susie's Senior Dogs.
In support of our generous award winning authors Outskirts Press is donating $1,000 to the Denver Dumb Friends League. Please join us in supporting this wonderful cause.
