This week I am participating in a local charity event. I’ve teamed up with Marlee’s by Tapper’s to have a book event at their store. The store is a women’s accessory store and is filled with adorable gifts galore! I will be there for an hour selling and signing books. The store has generously offered to supply pink tiara cookies and potato chips for the guests.

When Marlee’s approached me about this event, they told me it was up to me to choose the charity that we would be donating proceeds from the event to. I had just recently heard about Pigs and Balloons. They are a local Michigan Non-Profit dedicated to throwing birthday parties to children whose parents have passed away. Be sure to click on the “About” section on their website to read about how they came up with the name Pigs and Balloons for their organization!

If you are local here in Michigan, I hope you will join us this Thursday for the event. 20% of all book and store purchases will go to Pigs and Balloons!
