Scripting Change Release Day Blast!

Hey guys! I wanted to check in and let you all know about an awesome project that is happening!

Scripting Change “is an opportunity for writers to support causes in which we believe, with our voices and words, by contributing to an electronic book, the proceeds from which will be donated to a nonprofit organization.  Depending on the recipient organization, a theme will be decided for the pieces to be included.”  Scripting Change is the brainchild of the incredibly awesome Anya Kagan!

The basics of the project are as follows:

The Basics: 

  • Selected works from contributing writers will be compiled into an electronic book to be sold through an online distributor.
  • The goal of the project is to have a $0 cost.
    • 100% of work required to create and promote this electronic book would be volunteered.
  • The book’s proceeds will be directed to a selected nonprofit organization.
    • ALL proceeds from book sales will be donated to make a difference in people’s lives.
      • Proceeds = Cost of book – % taken by the distributor
    • The theme for the book will be related to the mission of the selected nonprofit.
    • The selected nonprofit will be asked to help promote the project and resulting book to ensure the project’s success in helping their cause.
If this project is successful, it will be repeated, with proceeds from each resulting book being directed to a unique nonprofit organization.

This year’s theme for their inaugural project was Determination & Hope Through Pain!  The inaugural recipient of funds raised by the Scripting Change project is the MTSR Scholarship Foundation, which provides scholarships to students who have been impacted by the high cost of medical care due to chronic illness.

I had written a poem while in the throes of severe pain last year, which will be appearing in the Scripting Change e-book, coming out on November 4th!

We want to spread the word far and wide about the Scripting Change E-Book Release Day! Help out by signing up for their THUNDERCLAP! You might remember Thunderclap from Fibromyalgia Awareness Day earlier this year, when we spread the word throughout our social media outlets to spread Fibromyalgia awareness! Well, the platform is the same, just a different organization! Won’t you help spread the word about this kickass project?!
