TWO WAYS TO GET YOUR GOOSE (AND HELP CHARITIES)
International Gallery Event and Formal Charity Ball Offer Two Ways to
Help Charities and Get Your Goose
With the holidays approaching, many people are already making their gift purchases. If you have a child on your holiday gift list, or someone who is young-at-heart, why not give them something special: an autographed, personally inscribed copy of Flightless Goose?
Flightless Goose is a full-color, hardcover story book for children. The book teaches important lessons about dealing with challenges, focusing on positive strengths, and treating others with respect and dignity. It's fun for children and educates as it entertains.
The book has been compared to Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer and The Ugly Duckling in that it is a classic "underdog story" about a goose who is made fun of as a misfit, but who ends up gaining the respect of peers in the end. A portion of the proceeds will help provide warm sleepwear and nurturing books to children in need through a partnership with The Pajama Project, endorsed by Oprah and Parenting Magazine.
It has been featured on the front page of the Baltimore Messenger and Towson Times and also in such periodicals as the Baltimore Sun, Los Angeles Times, Abilities Magazine, Acreage Magazine, The Potomac, The Hearing Review, Agri Digest, Automotive Industry Magazine, Pen In Hand, and Diversity Rules. The book was also featured at last year's Festival of Trees and this year's BookExpo America.
But there are more interesting ways to get your goose. Here are two:
