For me it's not always easy to find ways to help support programs I believe in. Financially? On occasion but more often than not I'm too busy trying to figure out how to feed my kids and pay my mortgage at the same time. But with a whole lot of time management, I can normally carve out a little time to give.
Beaten Track Publishing and their Boughs of Evergreen holiday anthology gave me an opportunity to use what I could give, my time, to help The Trevor Project make a difference in the lives of LGBTQ young people.
I wanted to support The Trevor Project for those I knew who are gone, for those I know who are still here, and most especially for a certain young boy I know who is just starting to suffer from the rejection of his biological father for his sexuality. Life is hard enough without loosing the love and support of those who are SUPPOSE to love and support us. The Trevor Project is there to give help and support to those who need it.
You can support The Trevor Project too! All proceeds from the sale of Boughs of Evergreen: A Holiday Anthology will be donated to The Trevor Project. And you'll have more than a thousand pages of reading to help take you through at least some of the holiday season. You can also help by donating here on the Beaten Track Trevor Project Fundraising page.
This was a massive endeavor for Beaten Track Publishing and I can not express how impressed I am with Debbie McGowan and her dedication to the project and belief in what could be accomplished with this anthology. I am so very proud to have been part of it. And I am proud to be in a collection with so many wonderfully talent authors and with so many amazing stories. I would do it again in a heartbeat.
