THE GODDESS BOOK DONATION PROGRAM

Offering an easy way for people in need to receive The Goddess' healing magic!

You're invited to donate books to people in need -- and/or suggest groups to receive donations!

PROJECT VISION: For this magical story to nourish people who can't necessarily buy it themselves. I know that this story has healing power What a difference it could make in their lives at a critical time!

SCENARIO: For instance, can you imagine a woman, finding herself in a woman's shelter, feeling so low about herself and life? We all know those feelings of dark times.

Then she discovers this Goddess book on the shelter's shelves. As she pages through the beauty of its pages, she feels its sweet and nurturing story touch something deep within her.

Could it perhaps help her feel loved by the Divine and a little more connected to her divine core? What difference might that make on her life journey and what she does next?

This is not just theory! See the real life example below.

PLANNED DONATION RECIPIENTS: I'm especially looking to donate to nonprofits with a reference library who serve people in need -- such as women's shelters, homeless shelters, recovery centers, and bookmobiles. And I'm open to other ideas!

Others have already donated books, and I've donated some books myself.
But I wanted to invite others to join in the fun, so we can reach more people!

Read below for more about how you can play.

A REAL LIFE EXAMPLE

An ally sent a copy of The Goddess to her pen pal in a women's prison. Surely folks in such a setting would be too tough to want such a sweet story, right?

 

But the woman inmate wrote back:

"I read the book twice and I love it. It is a healing book. The author did an awesome job.

I also passed it around to the women on the pod to read; they all loved it.

So it has already touched a lot of lives. I thank you for getting it for all of us."

About two weeks later, the inmate wrote again, "Yes everyone loves the book. :-) It is being read all over the yard -- 1,400 inmates."

Can you imagine, one book, being able to connect with that many people!

In sharing this, my ally added, "I think this is amazing. Your book is creating ripples already. Can we create some more?"

Then she asked her pen pal if any inmates would like to send books to their children, as her Christmas gift. Eight mothers accepted that offer and we sent them out!

She heard back that they too were delighted at the gift of The Goddess.

And I had so much joy from being part of getting this book to more people that it could serve!
