I feel like Dora and the gang with that post title, but it's true and I'm dancing around happily to this uber-annoying song!
YOU have helped me reach my goal of donating $500 to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, the charity I selected for UNSPORTSMANLIKE CONDUCT, in the very first week of the book being on sale!
That's the FOURTH time in FOUR books releases that I've been able to make my donation within the first week of release! That is so unbelievably spectacular!! I don't have the words to express how humbled and grateful I am to each one of you.
Sometimes I think: How can I --one tiny human being on this gigantic planet--make a noticeable change in the world? Then I realized, I may not be able to make major changes, but if I can make a small impact to those around me--and help others make a small impact--we WILL see that. Someone WILL benefit from that.
We can't give up. We can't surrender. We can't stop because it's too hard or because we can't see the impact. It's happening. And if more and more of us make our small contributions we WILL see the larger impact. Our children WILL see it. We WILL be able to say that we had a hand in making the world a better place. Just by being a good person. A compassionate person.
You don't need to have a lot of money. You just need to have the drive. And the heart. And the vision to support people who are working for good.
Even if it's just buying a book. Or downloading a song. Or buying a certain brand because they give a portion of proceeds back to something.
You are making a difference. You are helping. You are a super hero!
"To every single person who lives their life with love, respect, and compassion for all.
We can change the world. Together. #BeKindLoveHard"
