We help others one act at a time. Below are some of the many charities that we support, but all listed are those who benefit from the proceeds of the sales of all of our books. Please join us in championing charities that help those lost in this world.
Together, in donating what we can financially, giving our time and resources, and spreading awareness through our social circles, we make an enormous impact.
Utterly Loved…Poetry for Charity
All net proceeds from Utterly Loved support Covenant House and World Vision.
“Covenant House is dedicated to serving all God’s children with absolute respect and unconditional love … to help suffering homeless kids … and to protect and safeguard all children in need.” … “Each year in the U.S. alone, as many as 2 million youth experience a period of homelessness, and every year more than 5,000 of these young people lose their lives to the streets. Their hope and promise are lost forever unless they find someone – like Covenant House – to love and care for them.” ~ from Covenant House’s Mission/Vision page
