Hit Reply to Boost Your Donation

This post was originally written December, 2020. You can no longer reply to boost the donation, but read the election results in my next post.

Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. What’s not to love? Food, family, football, and usually a bit of Black Friday shopping—maybe not all of it this year, but I’m hopeful for next year.

The Christmas season is upon us now and things will be getting real crazy real soon. December also happens to be my birthday month which often adds to the crazy . . . at least around my house. To take some of the crazy out of December 2020, and as my gift to you, I’ll be making a donation of $1 for every name on my newsletter distribution list. So, if you receive my e-newsletter, you’ve already donated $1. Thank you! But please keep reading to find out how you can help me decide where to donate AND triple your $1.00 donation. I have 3 favorite charities:

  • St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. The mission of St. Jude’s is to advance cures, and means of prevention, for pediatric catastrophic diseases through research and treatment. The vision of their founder Danny Thomas was, and is today, that no child is denied treatment based on race, religion or a family's ability to pay.

  • Habitat for Humanity. A global nonprofit housing organization working in local communities across all 50 states in the U.S. and in approximately 70 countries. Habitat’s vision is of a world where everyone has a decent place to live. Habitat works toward their vision by building strength, stability and self-reliance in partnership with families in need of decent and affordable housing. Habitat homeowners help build their own homes alongside volunteers (sweat equity) and pay an affordable mortgage.

  • American Cancer Society. The goal of the ACA is to save lives, celebrate lives, and lead the fight for a world without cancer. They fight to improve health and improve lives. The ACA commits all its resources to further cancer research and promote healthy lifestyles. There is no limit to the services this organization offers, all to ensure the victims live a quality life. Its efforts are for prevention as well as for treatment.

See what I mean? Tough choice. So, in the spirit of holiday giving as well as helping me celebrate my birthday, I've made it super easy. All you have to do is reply to the email. Tell me which charity speaks to you the most. When you do, I’ll triple my $1 donation on your behalf to the charity that gets the most votes. So, it's $1 just for being a part of my newsletter distribution, $1 for your vote, and $1 more for my birthday. No strings attached. It’s my way of showing gratitude for the blessings in my life and for saying thank you for being part of Holly Morris Writing. Please take the time to reply to the email or message me from my website. Vote for the charity of your choice and like the magic of Christmas and birthdays, I’ll transform that $1 to $3. Again, happiest of holidays and may 2021 be your best (or at least better than 2020) year yet!
