Hey there everyone.
Those of you who follow my Author Interview series (hello Mother, is it time for tea? Not yet, OK then I’ll carry on) will have seen that I interviewed award winning author Suzy Vadori a little while back and you can find the link to that interview here.
Suzy is involved in a great cause right now this Christmas and I would therefore like to share with you more information on it, how you too can support this charitable organisation based in Canada and give kids counselling and support services.
(And best of all, even if you are based internationally, you can still help out in this great cause too and get your hands on some signed award winning books to boot!)
CALGARY BEST-SELLING, AWARD WINNING AUTHOR
DELIVERS BOOKS TO SUPPORT KIDS HELP PHONE
Calgary, Alberta: One-upping impersonal delivery services, local Calgary Bestselling, Award-Winning Author Suzy Vadori is signing and hand-delivering orders of her popular The Fountain Series in the Calgary area this December, to support a great cause, Kids Help Phone (KHP).
“Signed books are such a unique, personal gift for readers of all ages. It is my privilege to bring books to readers’ doors, and spread awareness of Kids Help Phone at the same time,” says Vadori. “Many people don’t realize Kids Help Phone sees a significant increase in young people needing support during the holidays, which can be a stressful time for many families. I’m proud to support KHP the whole year through, but especially during this critical time. All kids deserve to have a safe place to call.”
This year, Suzy has toured Alberta, bringing the LOVE of writing, her books, and Kids Help Phone’s message to schools from Kindergarten to Grade 12 across the province, with a portion of proceeds donated directly to KHP. Signing books and meeting her readers leading up to Christmas has become a tradition for Suzy – 2018 is her fourth annual campaign to raise awareness for Kids Help Phone’s 24/7 counselling, information and referral services. As a charity, Kids Help Phone relies on the generosity of donors during the holidays to ensure that young people have a trusted place to turn to in any moment of crisis or need. A generous $5 will be donated to Kids Help Phone for every book sold through suzyvadori.wordpress.com, between December 5th and 23rd.

Signed books can also be sent nationally and internationally, for a nominal shipping charge. The delivery campaign runs from Dec 5-23. To order a signed book for someone on your Christmas list, visit https://suzyvadori.wordpress.com/delivery-campaign/
“Kids Help Phone is Canada’s only national service offering professional counselling, information and referrals for young people 24/7 by phone, text, mobile app or on kidshelpphone.ca. Through its free, and anonymous service, young people can connect in both English and French for the support they need, in the way they need it most. Please call 1-800-668-6868, we are always open.”
