Thanks to my awesome readers, I have already donated $2205.00 so far to LZ-Grace Warrior Retreat Foundation in Virginia Beach and will be sending another check at the end of this month for a total of $2500.00. Funds were raised from proceeds of the sale of my latest short novel, NEVER FORGET, a romantic suspense featuring a U. S. Navy SEAL master chief (copies available HERE.)
Through my donation, I hope to improve the quality of life of the special operators who sacrifice their physical and emotional health while protecting American interests. This past summer I got to visit LZ-Grace Warrior Retreat, which is owned and operated by Navy SEAL widow Lynette Bukowski. This incredible woman has created a lovely spot in the countryside where special operators can swap stories around a bonfire, get a massage in the Zen Garden, work out in her fully equipped gym, and get therapy through art, music, and writing.
Donating to LZ-Grace is a special way to give back to the brave men who put their lives on the line for us.
My fundrasing endeavors were recently described in the Books section of The Daily Press. I challenges any and all small businesses to match my donation of $2500. Will you do it?
