CBC Radio’s Close to Home

A big thank you to CBC Radio Halifax.  Carmen Klassen, the host of “Close To Home”, called me up yesterday to invite me to be a guest on the show to talk about Writers who CARE: the 50/50 Project.   I enjoy listening to Carmen every weekday afternoon. She features guests from Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, New Brunswick and Cape Breton. You can hear our chat at Close to Home.

We’ve raised $600.00 to date for CARE International’s work in the refugee camps in the Horn of Africa. Thanks to all the generous published authors who have donated their time and talent to do critiques to raise money.

 

Writers who CARE: the 50/50 Project

Have you always dreamed of becoming a published author? Do you have a half-finished manuscript hidden under the bed? Writers who CARE are a group of published authors working to raise money for Somalian refugees through CARE International. If you donate $50 to The 50/50 Project, a published author will critique 50 pages of your work-in-progress.  This is a steal folks! 

East Africa is facing its worst drought in more than 60 years, creating the most severe food crisis in the world today.

CARE has launched an emergency appeal for $48 million to provide food, water, and emergency relief.  They hope to reach almost 2 million people affected by the emergency.

Check out Writers who CARE: the 50/50 Project today and see how you can help. Thank you for your support!
