Self Publish my book for charity

Losing someone special to you is never an easy thing. There are so many unanswered questions and so much uncertainty. Will you see them again? Do they know how much you love them?
About five years ago my family suffered the loss of my niece, Ruby. I immediately took my pain and turned it into poetry. I have written a few things for my niece, but I believe in my heart that this is the story I was supposed to tell. Earlier this year I self published my book in honor of my niece and named it
"the secret angel"
My story "the secret angel" is written from the perspective of the family members left behind here on earth. Its about how they know they have a secret angel. she thinks she's SUPER sneaky trying to stay out of view, but you always know she's there. It shows that secret angels are always there for us during some of the hardest moments even if we can't see them or hear them. It shows day-to-day events where she shows her love or helped them get through something.. even though she doesn't think anybody knows. ❤️
I feel the story is a beautiful way to remind myself and my family members that this special person is always with us. But also, even more importantly, that we have not forgotten her and that she is still in our hearts everyday.

after sharing this book with so many friends and family and getting such amazing feedback on how heartwarming it was and how it could help so many people suffering from the loss of someone they love,
it led me to this next step. What's a better way to honor my niece then passing this book along to other people so it can reach more hearts ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

My goal is to raise $2500 so I can self publish this book into 300 copies and deliver them to local hospitals like Seattle children's, Saint Jude and other hospitals who are filled with families in need of inspiration and maybe a little bit of faith.

Thank you for taking the time to read my story, to hear where my inspiration comes from and where I'm hoping it can go. Thank you ❤️
