Thank you note arrived in the mail today from Marcia Epstein, who is the director of Headquarters Counseling Center in Lawrence, KS. When Crazy About You came out as a paperback I sent her a copy because I've been donating $1 from every ebook sale (and will continue to do so for ebook and paperback) to HQCC because these wonderful folks, among other things, work the Suicide Prevention Hotline for this part of the United States.
I wish Crazy were selling better so I could donate more. But, you know, a small donation every month adds up over time and can become significant. It's good to find a cause you can donate money to regularly. Makes you feel better about yourself every month you do so.
I'll put a scan of the note below but here is a text copy:
Thank you for your support of Headquarters Counseling Center through your regular donations from book sales, as well as the dedication to the book. That was amazing, so touching to be right there with your father.
Thanks for sending us a copy. I grabbed it first -- and didn't want to put it down til I finished it. Then I puzzled over how much was your experience. Although parts are disturbing, all of it kept me reading. Thanks.
Work is hard. Support for local services is hard to obtain. But what we do is important. So we keep on.
Thanks for helping us.
To which I say: thank you for being there so I can help. I wish I could do more.
Commercial time! Buy the book folks. $1 goes to these dedicated people. But if you want to donate directly go here.
