Pearl Girls

Pearl Girls button

I am thrilled to join with the "blogging tour" promoting the book Pearl Girls. It is a fantastic book full of real stories from real women about what God has done in their lives through some of the hardest times of their lives. I will warn you, read this with a box of tissues handy! It's great for busy mom's because each short chapter is someone's story. I've read it at the doctor's office, at lunch at work, etc. There are so many stories that remind me of women I know. The cool thing is YOU can add your voice to this amazing book! Go to "Post a Pearl" and share about the grainy things in your life God has turned to pearls.

I love that 100% of the proceeds of this books goes towards 2 charities:

  • WINGS (women in need growing stronger). The proceeds will help fund a Safe House in the Chicago suburbs. It costs $50 a night to provide safe shelter for a woman and her children. During this economy, WINGS is receiving even more phone calls for a safe place to stay. Already, the Pearl Girls have provided 60 nights with the advance royalties.

  • Hands of Hope. The proceeds will help build wells in Uganda for school children. Can you imagine a child at school without a water fountain in the hallway where he or she can grab a quick sip of water in between classes on a hot day? These children have to drink from puddles and other water sources which carry diseases and parasites. It costs $12,000 to build a well in Uganda. Already, the Pearl Girls have provided funds to build ¼ of a well. www.handsofhopeonline.orgFirst and foremost Margaret would like you to highlight above all else that 100% of the book’s royalties go to Charity.
I hope you all enjoy this book as much as I have! You can check out more of the blogging tour at these sites:
