Donate to Free Arts for Abused Children and enter to win a copy of my book!

Thanks to my friend, Lia C. Kent, who sent me info on the wonderful group Free Arts for Abused Children, have I come to know another amazing charity. This is a group who aids in helping children who are abused or homeless find ways to release their pain and anger by throwing it into something creative. Along the way, I am sure it also helps the kids to make friends, find people who care about them, as well as build self esteem and realize that they are worthy of love from not only others but from themselves too. I have also discovered it has a Walt Disney Company member as their President!!! Way cool in my opinion:) Here is a list of items that they are in need of taken directly from their web site.
