Charity Update

As you may know each and every month I name a charity, generally, but not exclusively, linked to literacy, and ALL monies raised through my affiliation with Book Depository will be donated to that charity. As I have mentioned before I will post the earnings on my blog at the end of a review each month – with a screen shot of my earnings for full transparency purposes.

Charities have been DryJuly and Asthma Foundation in July, Wall of Hands in August and Fire Foundation in September. The screen shot below shows the earnings with Wall of Hands not getting a donation, with the first two charities sharing US$33.04 and the last still clocking up purchases to add to the US$1.94 raised.
