I want to give a shout out to a Facebook friend of mine, Evelyn. Evelyn, like myself, is an advocate for Huntington’s disease and on the board of the Huntington’s Disease Society of America (HDSA) Arizona Chapter. Last year, she organized a successful fundraiser, an annual Team Hope Walk program, a signature grassroots fundraising campaign designed to provide hope and support for those touched by this devastating disease. http://arizona.hdsa.org/
I had reached out to Evelyn before the event, to ask if I may donate a signed book for their raffle. She responded and then asked if she could sell the book for me at the event? Partnering with HDSA Chapters, there are 54 Chapters in the U.S., in my HD fundraising/HD awareness project is what I’ve been striving for. Of course, I agreed, sent her a dozen books, she sold five at the event, and she continues to sell the rest of them. It’s a win/win because HDSA National is receiving 100% of the profit from sale of books.
Thank you Evelyn for your Teamwork in marketing my book since all HDSA Chapters have a common goal:
“Improving the lives of everyone affected by Huntington’s disease.”
We Can Never Lose HOPE…………
