For the last four years I have been donating most of the profits from the December sales of all Sgt. Windflower books to a great community cause. It’s a great way for me to give back a little to people and organizations who need so much, especially this time of year.
In the last four years we have been able to donate over $2,000.00 to community groups who really need our support.
This year I will be again donating $5.00 from the sale of every Windflower book to the Minwaashin Lodge in Ottawa.
Minwaashin Lodge is a healing centre in Ottawa that provides a range of programs and services to First Nations, Inuit and Metis women and children who are survivors of domestic and other forms of violence, and who may also be suffering the effects of the residential school system.
The mission of Minwaashin Lodge is to provide wholistic programs and services for grandmothers, women, children and youth impacted by family violence and residential schooling. All programs and services are provided in the context of cultural beliefs and values as part of the healing journey.
The money donated will go to support First Nations, Inuit and Metis women and children to have a good meal and presents from Santa under the tree on Christmas morning.
If you make a donation to Minwaashin Lodge I will donate an additional $5.00. Just let me know that you’ve made a contribution so I can verify it.
In addition, I will send a signed copy of a Sgt. Windflower Mystery, to you, or a friend or relative of choice, anywhere in the world.
E-mail me at mike54martin(AT)yahoo(DOT)ca and I’ll send the other book along. And of course, add my additional donation to the cause.
