Dear Heartwired friends,

I’m proud to announce my piece Going Bald for a Cause will be among the 101 essays in Chicken Soup for the Soul‘s “My Kind (of) America” due in bookstores late August.

This collection focuses on kindness, tolerance, compassion and the people who make this country everyone’s kind of America.  Going Bald for a Cause tells the story of how big-hearted, everyday people in my community created something huge for the St. Baldrick’s foundation.

Even better, I know stories just like mine happen in every community across our great country everyday! “My Kind (of) America” features many of them.

Kindness matters. It always has. I couldn’t be happier participating in a book promoting that message.

Best wishes to you, my Heartwired friends! I hope you are living the joys of summertime–gazing at fireflies alight in the fields, laughing with loved ones on a late-night porch, feeling connected to the natural world around you–whatever living your joy means to you.
