Summer Charity As the Year of Fundraising Continues!

To commemorate Pride Month, I am (as I always do) designating The Trevor Project as my June / Summer charity.

The Trevor Project is the leading suicide prevention and crisis intervention nonprofit organization for LGBTQ+ young people. They provide information and support to LGBTQ+ 
young people 24/7, all year round.

As you know, I donate at least 20% of the revenue from my book sales to a different designated charity. 

You have two ways to give and get a copy of my book:

Direct Donation = FREE BOOK!  If you directly donate at least $25.00 to The Trevor Project, I will send you my book without charge.  Just email a copy of the receipt for your donation to me at  You can black out any personal info.   I will cover the mailing cost.  I will inscribe your book.  I will take it to the post office myself!

Buy My Book = I donate 20%!  If you buy a copy of my book through this website (not Amazon) I will donate at least 20% of the purchase price to The Trevor Project.  My book is $20.00 and mailing cost is $5.00.  

Really, making the donation yourself is much better for you!  You get my book inscribed and mailed to you; I cover the cost; you get the charitable deduction; and a worthwhile cause, The Trevor Project, gets your dollars!  All you have to do is donate at least $25.00 and send me a copy of your receipt via email along with your full name, to whom you want the book inscribed, and the address to which you want your book mailed!

Either way — I will inscribe your copy of my book and mail it to you on the Friday after you purchase it through me or email documentation of your donation to me at


And as always, any time of the year, any day of the week:

The choice of a Mugwump is an important decision and should not be based upon advertising alone.

Be well.
