As You all well know My book is being released on January 3, 2015. “Scar Wars Forged In Fright” is about how Post Traumatic Stress Disorder affected my life. So I want to give 2% of every book sale to a charity preferably non-profit and preferably to an organization that offers help to those who are dealing with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. So for about a month I have been going to websites trying to contact an actual person because I do not know how much the 2% will add up to I cannot just take a credit card and pay the site.
I have contacted two websites today one was for Veterans and Soldiers and they are one of the ones who I have been trying to get in touch with for over a month. Last month I actually called their foundation and the first person I talked to sounded very excited about the prospect but then I got derailed when he transferred me to the one that handles those matters. He was not in so the nice man said they would be back in touch with me. Never heard another thing again I went to the site today to offer my tiny little 2% and no one contacted me
So I hunted down another PTSD organization this was run by Veterans but included anyone who was dealing with PTSD caused by any trauma. I thought okay here is my organization. I used the contact form and heard nothing all day then I went back to the site to see if they had an address or phone number but no dice. But there was this little tab and it said live chat and so I put my proposal in the message box and hit send and guess what there was nobody alive around it.
I with my whole soul want to give this measly little 2% to an organization that will help people find a better way of life than living with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. I only have 43 days till the book comes out and my publisher said I either need to make it happen or choose another charity. So tonight I decided I will email the therapist that helped me work through my battle with PTSD and see if she knows of a Non-Profit Organization that would like this gift.
This is a short post again because I got worse today and I think I may go back to the doctor tomorrow. But I again know that I rest in the Palm of God’s Hand.
