InsideView Charity Choice
On Nov. 18 I had the pleasure of chatting with the women of InsideView during their quarterly Women Who Lunch series. As with all speaking events, I encourage the host to choose a nonprofit organization to receive 20% of my author profits from any books sold at the event.
InsideView elected to let the lunch participants decide from three organizations. The charity with the most votes by end of business Wednesday, Nov. 26, 2014 will receive the Adventure Philanthropist donation.
Thanks for casting you vote for your favorite nonprofit org!
