Diana Cosby: Romance Reader’s Build A Habitat For Humanity Home Challenge

I am honored and proud to host Diana Cosby today, so we can help support her Habitat For Humanity Home Challenge. I love it when I can help another author do things that come from a grateful heart. Successful people do these things. They reach out and help others. Won't you help her today? Thanks to all my readers and fans!  Now, take it away, Diana!
There’s
only one thing better than curling up with a good book on a chilly day, and
that’s building a warm, safe, and secure Habitat house for a deserving
family.  It gives families more than just
a home; it provides a foundation on which to start their future and build their
dreams.
Diana’s
readers have an opportunity to build such a house.
How it works:
As
readers send contributions to Habitat for Humanity of Grayson County, the
bookshelf will fill with every donation. The goal is to fund an entire home –
$55,000.  Send your donation via PayPal
using the Donate link in the menu bar or
donate funds the old-fashioned way—a check works just fine!
Address:
Habitat
for Humanity of Grayson County
901
N. Grand Avenue
P.O.
Box 2725
Sherman,
TX 75091
With
each donation, watch the bookshelf as it fills with colorful books! 
Tally
to date as I write this blog: $2335!
*Readers
groups, please challenge others to match your donation!
*I
kicked off the challenge with a donation of $200!
***My
humble thanks to Sharon Hamilton for having me on her blog today, and another
huge thanks for her generous donation of a set of the SEAL books (Books 1-Accidental
SEAL, Book 2-Fallen SEAL Legacy and Book 3-SEAL Under Covers) PLUS one audio book, Accidental SEAL, and a dog tag and wrist band to one person who stops by and posts today,
the 22nd of November

I’ll add in a signed copy of the 1st book in the bestselling
MacGruder Brothers series – His Captive. 
Once I draw the name tomorrow using random.org, I will post the winner’s
name here, and I’ll need the winner to e me with mailing details.
My
sincere thanks for your time, may your holiday season be filled with blessings.
Sincerely,
Diana Cosby, AGC(AW), USN Ret.
International Best-Selling Author of the
MacGruder Brothers series

Good morning Sharon,

My humble thanks for talking about the Romance Reader's Build A Habitat For Humanity Home Challenge today, and for your amazingly generous contribution of books and other items for this blog. I love working with Habitat For Humanity. You work along side the potential home owners as well as other volunteers to help a deserving family have a home. Each build is a humbling and amazing event.

I'm excited to share that as of yesterday, we hit $2400! Each $1 truly makes a difference, and I'm confident that together, we'll reach our goal of $55,000!!!

My sincere thanks to each of you for taking the time to visit today and for considering donating to Habitat For Humanity. I wish each of you a wonderful holiday season!
God bless,

Diana Cosby, AGC(AW), USN, Ret.

    Awesome. My calcs show that we reached out to over 130 people today so far. Hopefully, there will be more. And others can still help out, even if the contest is over. I hope they will. Habitat is a wonderful organization and so deserving of our thoughts, especially this time of year.
