XoXo Publishing presents Touch a Soul(TM) – Literature Fundraising for Charity
By: Brianna Martini
How many people have wanted to donate money to a fundraising campaign they have seen on television or when at the mall? How many of us cannot help ourselves when we see someone in need?
I am sure that there are many more like me who feel that way.
While many of us readers still enjoy a good paperback novel, there are a growing number of people who are into reading books on their computer. Our website http://www.xoxopublishing.com, offers both paperbacks, e-books and Books on CD for sale, with stories ranging from Romance to Erotica to the Paranormal. We offer something for everyone.
“Our company mission is to let the reader explore a private place for reading pleasure, where they will be transported to a world of infinite possibilities.”
What makes XOXO Publishing so great? It’s not just because we are a publishing company who sells books; it is because we love helping others.
XOXO Publishing has created a division specifically for helping others. “Touch a Soul” (TM) is a non-profit part of the company, in which we feature fundraising paperbacks and e-books, where proceeds go to a charity of our choice or the author’s. We feel it is important to help others when we can and as much as we can.
Last spring, our company put out an Anthology called “Hate the Sin: Love the Sinner,” which was very successful. It combined a variety of short stories and poems. This book was featured at the Toronto Small Press Book Fair. Proceeds from the sales of this book went to the Heart & Stroke Foundation.
The success of “Hate the Sin: Love the Sinner” has prompted Touch a Soul(TM) to produce even more this year, allowing XOXO Publishing to help even more organizations. Who wouldn’t want to donate?
As of right now, there are six fundraising projects in the works, in which 75% to 100% of the sales will be going to charity. Authors from around the globe have become interested in producing stories, in the hopes of raising money for a variety of charities, and will donate a percentage of their own sales.
Books such as Must I Remember by Dr. Tim B. Watson is donating all of his royalties to an African charitable organization, while author Brianna Martini is donating 100% to the Convoy for Cure (Truckers with Cancer) off her upcoming release I’m Big, I’m Sexy and I’m Me. Author Victoria C. Blake is donating a percentage of her royalties to a local woman’s shelter, while author Amelie Court is allocating a percentage of Nobel her latest novella to the Canadian Diabetic Association.
XoXo Publishing's next project is to raise funds for all of the earthquakes Haiti, Chile, Turkey Orphanages via Unicef Canada, and a third project underway is for the Cancer Society Ovarian and Prostate Cancer. We have a list posted on our website at http://www.xoxopublishing.com.
It is not out of duty or obligation that we have created Touch a Soul(TM), but out of love for others, and our wanting to help. It is our way of giving back. We want make a difference in people’s lives, no matter how big or small.
Look for more to come from Touch a Soul(TM) and XOXO Publishing(TM).
