I don’t usually post about matters political, but this is too important to ignore.
I am involved with two charity fundraisers to help the people of the Ukraine, and I’d like to tell you about them.
One is an anthology put together by Romance Cafe Publishing. Over 60 authors have written everything from flash fiction to poetry to short stories, and everything has been donated, including the model and cover art. All proceeds go to Save the Children’s efforts to help Ukrainian children.

Here’s the blurb:
Protect the innocent.
Provide for families.
We stand with Ukraine.
Across the globe authors have come together to provide stories filled with hope, heart and understanding, inspired by the events of February 2022.
STAND FOR UKRAINE is a collection of romance, women’s fiction and poetry. Proceeds go to Save the Children’s efforts to provide Ukrainian children with food, warmth, shelter and psychological support.

The second joint effort is thanks to the tireless work of a group of fabulous JAFF authors Melanie Schertz, Elizabeth Adams, and Abigail Reynolds. They have coordinated a page where, in exchange for a donation, all sorts of JAFF authors are offering goodies like free ebooks and cameo appearances in upcoming novels. The charity they have selected is Global Giving, but if you choose to donate through another charity, you can still join the effort. All the details are on this Facebook page:
I hope you will check these out.
