I have raised $961 of my $1,000 goal to help Cherie Goren (re)publish her Holocaust refugee story and Rina Diamond publish her memoir of her refugee story. I have already started to edit Cherie’s book and my goal is to complete it by Cherie’s 94th birthday in March, 2019.
There is still time to donate if you haven’t already done so, because Krista Nelson (my partner in this endeavor) will be working on both books through at least half of 2019. I also hope to find some other people who want help with their memoir.
This Wednesday at the New Horizons Senior Center, I am reviewing the story of my family with my children’s book, Flight to Freedom: A Tale from Tarpiluvka, which I republished on Amazon earlier this year with the help of Krista, who works on book design and photos.
If you want to know more about my Go Fund Me project or make a donation, please go to: www.gofundme.com and type in menupause.info in Search box on their Home Page. Thanx again to my daughter-in-law Maura for setting up my campaign. I never expected such a positive response! Have sent another update to all my contributors from Go Fund Me and am filled with gratitude for their donations. Personal thank you notes or phone calls have been sent to those who gave me donations via check or cash.
P.S. After the first the year, I plan to go back to some of my regular postings with recipes, book reviews, etc. while working on these two books, but my postings may not be as often.
