Normally I do my Charity Sundays on the last Sunday of each month. However I just got a notice from one of the charities I support, informing me that they have a 4x match challenge for all contributions they receive before the 31st of December.

So I’m doing Charity Sunday a week early - tomorrow! - to give me time to collect comments and make the biggest donation possible. As it happens, the specific charity involved is very appropriate for Christmas.

Charity Sunday is a meme designed to give authors and bloggers a chance to give back to the world—as well as, hopefully, to attract new readers.

How does it work? Each participant selects a favorite charity. Before
the date, 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.

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. You can set an upper limit to your donation if you want.

If you’d like to participate in the next Charity Sunday
on November 26th, 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.

You can download the Charity Sunday banner from here:  I will be creating a brand new banner for 2024!

Thank you for participating! Come back tomorrow to leave comments that turn into donations!
