There is much in the news and elsewhere currently about refugees and how we should respond to them and treat them. If you follow me on social media (or if you know me) you probably know where I stand already, but I’ve decided it’s important to take action as well as say nice things.
So here is a thing that I can do.
For the next month (actually up until March 3rd) I am donating all of my royalties from sales of Bonhomme Sept-Heures and The King in Darkness to the Canadian Council for Refugees.
You can support people who are in desperate need of help and somewhere safe to go and also reward yourself with a story I think and hope you’ll enjoy at the same time.
I would be delighted if you would join me in offering a welcoming hand to some people who could not need it more, and a kinder response than they are getting from many quarters currently.
edit to add: You might remember I did this last year for Fort McMurray relief and I was really pleased by the response. I hope we’ll do as well again.
