Shadow Forest Authors
A call to all authors,
Shadow Forest Authors is a fellowship of authors for charity. Our mission is to get authors from around the world and from all genres to unite with SFA and participate in donating books and e-books to selected beneficiaries, literary foundations who fill a much needed void in books around the world.
Unbeknown to many, illiteracy issues cost billions a year in higher consumer prices due to the cost of recruiting and training functional illiterates, mistakes and inabilities in the workplace, for juvenile delinquency and crime directly related to illiteracy. In addition; social stigma, medical and pharmaceuticals with high rates of depression and suicide. Illiterates suffer self-worth, relationship, unemployment and social issues. Worldwide, this massive problem receives little funding or attention and as stated, costs billions.
SFA invites authors to get listed and participate in this worthy cause. All we ask is that authors donate a copy of their title to a SFA beneficiary of their choice: The Australian Literacy & Numeracy Foundation - Australia, Book Aid International - U.K, Got Books Inc - U.S.A, Adult Reading Assistance Scheme - New Zealand, The World Public Library - U.S.A Read Between the bars, Tucson's books to prisoners program, The Women’s Prison Book Project - USA, Mission Australia Prison Book Program - USA. Books To Prisoners - USA
We are also adding more beneficiaries each month.
Participating authors receive a mention on the SFA site and the chance to sell further books via our unique supporter program.
Get listed now on Shadow Forest Authors.
Be part of the mission to stop illiteracy worldwide.
Help SFA be one million strong in 2009
P.S We would appreciate you passing this invitation onto other authors and readers, every little bit helps.
