Ways YOU Can Help



My daughter, her husband, and some friends are organizing a benefit concert in Raleigh, NC called Chords for a Cause: Concert for Darfur '08 will all proceeds donated directly to Doctors Without Borders.

Doctors Without Borders
Doctors Without Borders Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) is an international independent medical humanitarian organization that delivers emergency aid to people affected by armed conflict, epidemics, natural and man-made disasters, and exclusion from health care in more than 70 countries. A private, nonprofit organization, Doctors Without Borders was founded in 1971 as the first non-governmental organization to both provide emergency medical assistance and bear witness publicly to the plight of people it assists.


As I get more information about this, I'll let you know.

FROM THE DESK OF RHONDA PENDERS OF THE WILD ROSE PRESS

Judith Rochelle, is one of our multipublished authors at The Wild
Rose Press as well as a personal friend. In late summer, 2007 I
approached her with an idea of a project that would enable RJ and me
to give something back for all the wonderful things that had happened
to us since we opened in May 2006. I wanted to find an organization
that I felt everyone, everywhere would care about and really
embrace. While many qualified, the one that kept coming back to my
mind was St. Jude's Children's Hospital.

A few days later, Judith created a synopsis and a proposal for a book
incorporating romance, suspense and St. Jude's. It took my breath
away at what she'd come up with. Judith wrote the book, RJ and I
edited it, and Kim Mendoza did the beautiful cover. None of us,
including the publishing company, will receive any compensation;
every penny will go to St. Jude's. Children's Hospital.

The result of this, is the amazing Crimson Rose book called "On the
Run" by Judith Rochelle. The book will be offered in both print and
electronic format. The amount raised will be announced on our web
site twice a year. The first report to be posted at the end of June
2008.

If you've purchased this book, thank you for your contribution to St.
Jude's, if you haven't purchased it yet, I strongly encourage you to
do so. The download is $5.00 and will go into a special fund to be
donated to St. Jude's twice a year.
