FINAL TALLY $1700 Raised For Wounded Warrior Project
Black Flagged Redux will be available to readers on Friday, May 11th.
Continuing in the tradition of giving to our nation’s heroes, I have chosen to donate the proceeds from my next charity book launch event to the Wounded Warrior Project. With Memorial Day right around the corner, May is the perfect month to honor veterans who carried the war back with them from the front-lines, facing challenges at home that few of us can possibly imagine. The Wounded Warrior Project helps these brave men and women tackle their unique challenges head on, with a variety of services designed to assist and empower .
The charity campaign surrounding Black Flagged raised over $1700 for the Disabled American Veterans (DAV) organization. I hope to double that amount for the launch of Black Flagged Redux.
With that said, here are the details:
Stage One: The Launch Weekend
1.) Starts whenever the book goes live on Friday May 11 and ends when I check the number of sales on Monday morning.
For each Kindle sale: I will donate the entire purchase price of the e-book and match that price with my own funds. I am offering the book at .99 for the weekend. Every sale will generate $2.
Don’t have a Kindle? Really? Just kidding. The book will also be available in physical form on Amazon. I’ll donate $2 per sale over the weekend and the rest of the month. Other ways to enjoy the ebook and be part of the weekend rush? You can Download the Kindle for PC program onto your PC OR Download the Kindle App for iPad OR Download the Kindle App for PC.
If you don’t have an Amazon account, I’m not going to pressure you into that. If you’d like, I’ll accept a donation in exchange for a signed copy of the book. It costs me $8 to put the book in your hands ($6 for discounted copy + $2 media rate mail). Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can work out the details
Stage Two: The Rest of May
1.) After the weekend, I will raise the price to $3.99 and donate $1.00 from each sale.
2.) Like last time, you can track the progress daily on my blog. I’ll keep updating the numbers.
What You Can Do to have the biggest impact?
2.) I’m obviously encouraging the e-book route, as this makes the biggest impact on Amazon’s sales rankings algorithms, which will keep the momentum flowing for the rest of the month.
Spread the Word.
Forward this blog post, send the email forward…get the word out to the masses. My goal is to double the amount donated last November.
