Charity Shout-out - Pippa's Post

Hello, I'm Pippa Jay - author of scifi and the supernatural with a romantic soul. This month's topic on RTG is charities. Since I've supported various ones over time, I decided I wanted to do a shout-out for charities supported by a couple of my friends instead, in the hope it will give theirs a boost.

The first is for my friend Carolyn Huckaby and the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. Carolyn tragically lost her son, and every year she does a sponsored walk to help raise funds. Having done research on the shocking teen suicide rates for Louisiana as part of a novella I have coming out in August, and losing a classmate in my teens from suicide, it seemed appropriate to support her in this cause.She's very close to her set goal now, so anything you can donate will be appreciated. You can read more about her story and the foundation by going HERE

As a big fan of big cats myself, the second is for my friend and fellow SFR Brigader Greta van der Rol, and this time you get the added bonus of books! Greta donates profits from Black Tiger to the David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation's Tiger Time to help support wild tigers, and profits from her novel White Tiger and a bit more go to sanctuaries in the US. Both books are werecat shifter romances. Although I haven't read either myself yet, I've enjoyed Greta's space opera titles, so I know you'll be in for a great story. Or you could donate directly to her chosen charity - Tiger Time - by going HERE. Otherwise you can find both books on her website HERE

Thank you for giving a Shout Out for these charities that do such important work! It's hard to find anyone who has not been touched by the tragedy of suicide. I nearly lost my brother years ago.
