I published my book “Diary of a Gay Nerd” in February this year and had intended on donating 10% to 3 different charities. 10% would go to PFLAG Bakersfield, 10% would go to The Gay and Lesbian Center of Bakersfield and then another 10% would go to Bakersfield AIDS Project, Ricky’s Retreat.
My profits haven’t been as high as I had hoped, but whatever I have made is still money and I can start making my first donation hopefully either in late September or early October, but it might be late October, who knows for sure. I am just waiting on Amazon.
You know it’s funny, I feel kind of excited about giving the money away lol. I don’t know why, most people would be hesitant especially when they are always broke, but I want them to have some money too, you know? I can’t describe the feeling, maybe someone out there understands what I mean.
Anyway, it will be soon and I can’t wait!
