KIDS HELP PHONE-how you can help!

Today I’m reblogging Patricia Caviglia’s latest post. Patricia is a very talented writer – a WANA112 Alum – and great friend and, YAY, we actually get to see each other in person!!! Whether we are attending our local Writers & Editors Network monthly breakfast meeting together or a 6-hour outdoor rock concert in a park (seriously … and she didn’t care that I was the oldest person there … neither did I!) , we always have a lot of laughs and great conversation. Besides that, I’m here to attest to the fact she makes a mean gnocchi tricolore from scratch! I’m happy to support this latest project of hers and hope you might join in too and pass it on. Thanks!

This fantastic blogging community often talks about ways we can pay it forward. Here’s another opportunity for a very worthy cause. If all you can do at the moment is to spread the word, that in itself is an enormous help. Thanks!

The girl in question had benefited from Kids Help Phone and was doing her part by collecting donations and participating in their annual walk.

This year, it’s my turn to participate in…

Patricia Sands lives in Toronto, Canada when she isn't somewhere else, particularly the south of France. With a happily blended family of seven adult children and, at last count, six grandchildren, life is full and time is short. Beginning with her first Kodak Brownie camera at the age of six, she has told stories all of her life through photography. Much to her surprise a few years ago, she began to write and has now published three novels, including two that are part of a six-book series set in the south of France. Love France? Love her work! Check out her website She is particularly drawn to the rewarding friendships of women and the challenges many embrace once their families are grown. "It's never too late to begin something new," she enthuses. "As the saying goes, just do it!"

  1. Another amazing opportunity to help, Patricia! Thanks for introducing us to your friend Patricia (that sounds kind of weird) 😉 I hopped on over there to support her. I need to find out if the US has a program like this. It’s awesome!

It's always good to hear to from you!
