Summer Long Contest for U.S. Military Wives!

This summer from 6/1/09-8/31/09 I will donate a portion of the proceeds from my Book Sales to the ASMBA STAR Foundation, a charity for Veterans and their families.

Below is the letter that the ASMBASTAR Foundation sent out to their members. I hope you'll pass this information on to anyone you know.

As a special thank you to our service members and their families, Sara Taney Humphreys, author of "The Amoveo Legacy", the first published novel in "The Amoveo Series", is running a very special contest for Military Wives ONLY. This contest will run from June 1st - August 31st and during the contest months a portion of the proceeds from ALL of her book sales will be donated to the ASMBA STAR Foundation. The mission of the ASMBA STAR Foundation, located in Nashville, Tennessee, is to improve the quality of life of the military service member, veterans and their families by contributing to the financial, educational, social, employment and medical needs unmet by the U.S. Government. The Foundation has awarded grants to organizations such as the National Military Family Associaton, Helping our Veterans, Operation Stand Down, and many others.

Thanks for bringing this to our attention.

I never knew they existed and I'm sure many military families don't, much less the organizations they fund.

Military families struggle something awful, espeically those E-5 and below.

Super idea. We're having the same issues in the UK with support, and there's a new-ish charity here called Help for Heroes which is so worth supporting. Wishing you lots of love and luck with this, Sara. :)
