Boston.

Friends, i am deeply saddened and without a doubt disgusted by the horrific act carried out at the Boston Marathon.

I watched in horror as i am sure many of you also did as the events unfolded on the news.

Many friends have contacted me to discuss this terrible incident.

This act is nothing but cowardice and those behind it should be ashamed of themselves.

 

Which brings me on the the next passage.

This was sent to me as part of an email.

Thank You for reading.

 

Hello Everyone,
In response to the tragedy in Boston, Argyle Empire is hosting a fundraiser to aid charities that will be helping in the recovery effort.
Given that part of the Gabriel series is set in Boston, we felt it was an appropriate and essential thing to do.If you donate a minimum of $5.00 to either the American Red Cross, your local chapter of the Red Cross or to The One Fund Boston, simply email a copy of your receipt to me atjenn@argyleempire.com. Then enter the giveaway posted at the top of our homepage atwww.argyleempire.com.

SR has graciously agreed to sign UK edition copies of both “Gabriel’s Inferno” and “Gabriel’s Rapture” for the winner.
The fundraiser will run between now and April 30. The winner will be selected on May 1 and notified by May 3.

We began the fundraiser yesterday and I’m happy to announce that our first day generated over $300.00. Our sincere thanks go to our fellow moderators at all the SRFans accounts worldwide, THESUBCLUBbooks, Bookish Temptations, Kat Bastion and Darwin Blake for their assistance in promoting this endeavor. We’re off to a great start and we’d love to see this effort grow by leaps and bounds over the next two weeks.

If you could help us promote this, that would be great.

If you would like to donate and enter the giveaway, please feel free to do so.
After all, this is really about helping a worthwhile charity and finding a way to deliver some kindness to a community that is hurting.
If you have any questions, please feel free to ask by email or in the comments section below.Many thanks in advance.

Take Care,
Jenn, Iris, Sere & Coco

 

 

Thank you for reading.

Please Retweet and share with everybody.

This terrible act made me instantly think of one thing.

 

Brave.

 

Brave, a word used too much.

Brave is someone battling illness.

Brave is someone going against the grain.

Someone who gives all but expects nothing.

Brave is the person who goes out of their way to help others.

Brave is someone who is charitable.

Brave is that person who stands up against oppression.

Against those who would dominate.

Brave is you.

Brave is me.

But only if you want to be.

 

 

Please be brave today, give some money, give some time.

Thank you again.

Mr Darwin Blake.
