Today is Giving Tuesday, a day dedicated to giving to your favorite nonprofit(s). I love this day, and love the focus on charity in a week otherwise dedicated to buying and spending.
In honor of Giving Tuesday, I’m running a special promotion: today only, for every copy of Please Give purchased, I will donate one dollar to DC Central Kitchen, a local community kitchen which trains jobless adults in food prep and service. They hire several of their volunteers for full-time work and train many more for careers in the food service industry. They also provide meals for homeless shelters, schools, and nonprofits. Learn more about DC Central Kitchen here.
Please Give takes place at a fictional anti-hunger nonprofit in Washington, D.C. It follows Beth Harmon, a 28-year-old woman whose dreams of working for the greater good clash with both her hectic office environment and her own struggles with anxiety. It’s my debut novel, and both a funny and sobering take on what it means to follow your passion into the workforce.
I’ve worked in the nonprofit sector for almost a decade, and I try to give back in both my personal and professional life. If you want to read Please Give — or even if you just want to pick up a copy for charity — now is a great chance to do so. This donation match is only good through today, November 27. Get your copy today!
