A Wonderful Feeling

by Susan Reichert, Editor-in-Chief

It’s a wonderful feeling to give back and help people. A writers group used their talent to do just that. Twenty-two of the members wrote a short story, published a book, and dedicated it to the Literacy Council. They used the Flesch Reading Score in the text so the Literacy Council could use the book in helping people read.  For every book the group sells, fifty percent of the net profit goes to the Literacy Council.

The same group is working on another book and has chosen the animal shelter to receive proceeds from this book when published.
Being able to invest in your community is a privilege––supporting your community is an honor.

We are all a part of a community and we have a responsibility to help those less fortunate than we are, and contribute to the common good of charitable organizations. They need us and we need them.
There is a warm feeling you get when giving back, one of connecting yourself to others and you know you are contributing to make someone’s world a better place.
