War Child - You're Not The Only One

I'm so excited because I've found out that my contribution has been included in this book, You're Not The Only One with all profits going to the charity War Child, an international charity that works with children affected by war.

Did you know that one child dies as a result of war every three minutes? Neither did I. That's 480 children per day and over 175,000 per year.

You can buy You're Not The Only One here and you'll also be able to preview the front and back cover, the contents, the introduction and even the first story.

If you want to read more about the book or see a list of the contributors then why not pop over to Sarah Peach's blog (she's the clever one who compiled and edited the book).

Excellent news!

Debs said...

lane - thanks very much.

The race was fun and I've promised my s-i-l that I'll do the other Cancer Research one in October too (must have been the lack of oxygen to my brain at the time).

Well done Debs - I was really thrilled to see your name on the list.

So did you wear the skin-tight, transparent T-shirt to run in?

Debs said...

tom foolery - thanks so much, it is exciting.

motherx - thanks, I am. I couldnt get hold of WF and have ordered the June copy to read your piece.

maddie moon - thank you, I've already ordered my copy.

spiralskies - thanks, I'm thrilled to see you there too. So exciting.

I did wear the tiny t but stretched it a bit and wore an even tinier vesty thing underneath so it didnt look too bad in the end.
