What exactly is Kindles for Kids?
Kindles for Kids is my way of paying it forward. My goal is to raise enough funds to purchase 10 Kindle Fires for the pediatric unit of a local hospital in UT.
How does Kindles for Kids work?
From March 12th-31st of 2012, I will be donating the *royalties I make on THE FAIRY GODMOTHER DILEMMA: CATSPELL–both in paper and e-book form–toward the purchase of the Kindle Fires.
Royalties are paid a month to two months after the fact. Factoring in that as well as putting in the order, receiving them, and getting them ready, I will be delivering the Kindle Fires to the hospital in June of 2012.
How can you participate?
If you are an author (published) or a writer (unpublished), this link will explain it more. A more detailed link can be found here. In short, I’m hosting an open call for donating **books you have the rights to for the hospital. One book per Kindle Fire. You can also participate by writing a ***short story for a fairy tale anthology I’m putting together for the hospital. If you’re a reader, this link will give you a few ideas on how to help spread the word.
How can you help?
The greatest help of all is to help me get the word out. You can do this by talking to people–online and in real life, posting about Kindles for Kids on forums, groups, on your blog, and by printing out and posting fliers.
