Today I’d like to tell you about an opportunity to help raise funds for SAFE and at the same time get something that you can share with a child that will bring a smile to his or her face and yours as well.
Here’s the deal… there’s a book for sale right now at Amazon in their Kindle store. Yes, it’s a Kindle book but don’t worry, you don’t have to own a Kindle in order to read it. (more on that in a minute). Anyway for the rest of this month 100% of the proceeds from the sale of this book will be donated to SAFE.
So what kind of book is it, and what’s it about? It’s a children’s book containing 7 character building short stories all written in rhymed prose. The stories are about a young pup and the lessons he learns while growing up with his mother and the other dogs in the neighborhood. If you’re wondering what rhymed prose is, it’s a literary form written in unmetrical rhymes. For our purposes here you can thing of it as stories that are written in rhymes. They are especially fun to read aloud to children and I guarantee everyone will have a smile on their face by the time you finish the first short story and I bet everyone will want to read on at that point.
So how can you help? Well you could purchase a copy of the book from Amazon, read it aloud to a child then submit an honest review of the book to Amazon. Beyond the purchase the review will help the book get into the best sellers list and this in turn will create even more sales. More sales equals more money for SAFE, remember SAFE will get 100% of the proceeds from all sales during the month of June.
Want to do even more to help? That would be awesome! You can by telling all your friends about this. Share the link on Facebook, Tweet about it on Twitter, email this blog to all your friends, talk about in the line at the grocery store, tell everyone at church. I think you get the idea.
The book is a whopping $2.99 and after Amazon takes it’s cut (30%) that leaves about $2 per book that will go to SAFE. Now that may not seem like a lot but many books similar to this one sell 200 to 400 copies per month on Amazon if they can get into the top 10 best seller ranks. Yes I said per month, month after month. This can be huge and you can help in a big way by purchasing and reviewing the book.
Here’s how this will work over the long haul. June 100% of the proceeds will go to SAFE. July 80% of the proceeds will go to SAFE, August and beyond 30% of the proceeds will go to SAFE. Plus as we publish more books we’ll be using a similar approach during the launch of a book to help it break into the top 10 best sellers to maximize the long term benefits.
But I don’t have a Kindle. No problem simply perform a search using your favorite search engine… something like this should work: How can I read a kindle book without a kindle? and you get lots of results and I’m sure one of them will address your situation.
