Christmas O'Clock and Water
All royalties go to the Water is Life charity, which works to provide clean drinking water for kids and families in the third world. Since the anthology is an international effort, we wanted the charity to be worldwide as well. And this charity is amazing - it dispenses a simple, small filtration system known as "The Straw."
The Straw removes tiny microbes that can cause typhoid, cholera, and dysentery. It also removes nasty things called "guinea worms" so children can drink and stay healthy. Each one costs ten dollars and lasts for a year.
Of course, that is only a first step. Water is Life also works to put in complete water systems so villages can access clean water without using The Straw.
We are offering Christmas O'Clock for FREE today and tomorrow - 12/3 and 12/4 - on Kindle in order to get the word out about our book and this very important charity. If you haven't downloaded Christmas O'Clock yet, do have a look on Amazon US, UK, Germany, Spain, France, Japan, and Italy.
