Well, I suck at posting to my blog on time, but my heart is in the right place. Anyway, I'll get to it. I have had a wild and emotional year. Most of 2013 sucked hard, but it's looking up! I am truly blessed. My children are blessed. So blessed I can't help but think of all those who aren't.
I am giving away $5000 to charity this season. Broken up as follows:
$3000 - School programs in my community
$500 - Wellspring - We are going there tonight to spend time with the kids and hand out goodies. If you're in the area. Come down! We will be there from 4-6pm.
$500 - Skateistan - A wonderful program dedicated to empowering young women. Here's a video
$500 - The Malala Fund - A 16y/o girl with the strength of conviction to stand up to the Taliban. Here's a video
I have $500 left to give. Please post a link to one of your favorite charities and I will donate a portion of the remaining funds to your charity. Must be a non-profit. Thank you!!
Also, to thank all of you for being so amazing to me. I will be flying one lucky person to one of my book signings in 2014 (up to $500)! U.S. Only.
