I know everyone is busy at this time of year, so I was thinking about skipping the December Charity Sunday. Then I realized there’s no better time to share our blessings than this season of light and joy.
So...this coming Sunday, the 27th of December, will be the next Charity Sunday. Charity Sunday is a meme designed to give us authors a chance to give back to the world—as well as, hopefully, attract new readers.
How does it work? Each participant selects a favorite charity. Before Charity Sunday, you should prepare a blog post that: 1) talks about the charity and why you support it; 2) provides a link to the charity; 3) includes an excerpt from one of your books; 4) includes the code to show links to other participating blogs.
It’s fun if you can make the excerpt relate somehow to your chosen charity, but this isn’t required. Actually, if you have a holiday story, this would be a great time to share a bit with your readers.
For every comment left on your post, you commit to giving some amount to the relevant charity. The specific charity and the amount to donate are up to you. The posts stay open all month, to maximize the amount of donations. You can set an upper limit to your donation if you want.
If you’d like to participate in the next Charity Sunday, just sign up using the Linky List below. Please be sure that the link you enter will lead directly to your Charity Sunday post, not just to the home page of your blog.
