I recently got an e-mail from WZID that I was one of NH’s 20 Outstanding Women and I want to thank Renee Martel for nominating me.
During my interview I mentioned that my next check of $1,000 from book sales was to go to New Hampshire Foster and Adoptive Parent Association, in Concord, NH. My book sales will always go to help “Children without Parents!” This is where I got to meet Mariellen J. Mackay and do a check presentation at my home in Manchester. The company was thrilled to receive this check and quite surprised. They couldn’t sing the donation’s praises loud enough and showed it by purchasing more books to help my cause for the next charity. How cool was that?
I will always show my check presentations so people will know that my word is golden on giving away all book proceeds to children in need. To date I have given $5,500 to charities and I am very proud to be able to do so with the help from all of you who purchased, “Soul Signs from the Other Side.”
May God Bless all of us at this trying time. Be safe and Be well!
