Default Please help me to help terminally sick children

Note to moderators: This post has been pre-approved by Dien Rice.
This has been cross-posted on several forums. I hope you'll understand why.

My young daughter's best friend has got cancer.

How parents of seriously sick children cope, I have no idea. We've offered
any help that we can give, and are all devastated by the news, but even we
are removed from the full force of the horror.

Imagine living with the knowledge that your child has a life-threatening
illness and all you can do is hope.

Or worse, imagine that there is no longer any hope.

Over the last few weeks I have been working on a new ebook about the power
of creating your own Mastermind group. I had planned to launch it this week
at $9.99 as the first in a series of short, to-the-point eBooklets.

But now I've had a change of heart.

I've watched from a distance as 'L' has endured sickness and tiredness from
the chemotherapy. I've listened to my daughter talk about how 'L' wakes up
every morning and expects to see her hair left behind on the pillow. I've
even joked with 'L' about the bubble that doctors have implanted in her
chest to make giving her frequent injections a little easier.

In my feelings of absolute frustration at being unable to help a funny,
happy, crazy, and loving little girl who is brave beyond words, I've reached
an acceptance and a decision.

I've accepted that I can't help her. She is responding to treatment, thank
the Lord, and despite her serious condition, is probably better off than
many children who are not.

My decision is that I, with your help, can do some small thing for the many
thousands of other children who are without hope of recovery or survival.

What I want to do is to sell my ebook 'How to Build Your Own Mastermind
Group to Catapult Your Success' entirely on behalf of the Starlight
Foundation charity. 100% of the money I receive for this book, after
Paypal fees, will be donated.

The Starlight Foundation does not try to find the cures for the many
diseases that children succumb to. They are not a medical charity. These
wonderful people, who are mostly volunteers, try to bring a little happiness
into the lives of children whose lives have little joy left.

They grant wishes. They provide entertainment in hospitals and hospices.
They organize outings and activities for those children who are able. They
help over 100,000 children every month in over 1,000 hospitals worldwide.

So what can we do to help?

I've reduced the price of my book to just $7.50 so pretty much everyone can
afford it.

Please go to my website at How to Build Your Own Mastermind Group

There you will find a simple, and short sales page. You can buy through
Paypal at $7.50, or use the Paypal 'donate' button to name your own price.

I will keep nothing. Every penny, cent, dollar and pound I receive will go
to the Starlight Foundation.

But wait ... there's more!

The Worst JV offer you'll receive this year!

If you have a mailing list, here is the worst JV offer you will receive this
year: offer this book to your list and receive absolutely nothing in return!

Except, of course, the knowledge that you've helped some seriously and
terminally ill children to smile for a change.

I make no apologies for the blatant attempt to pull on your heart-strings.
My aim is to raise as much money as I can.

Please help me.

Thank you.

Martin Avis.

STOP PRESS: Dr. Mani has very generously offered to add a copy of his excellent ebook,
'The Emotion Prism' as a special bonus for anybody who donates $15 or more.
If you do, I will email you separately with download details.

PS. A huge thank you is due to Karol Gadja who gave me a copy of his superb program
MyDigitalDelivery and installed it for me! It integrated seamessly with Paypal and
allows you to do all kinds of thing that would otherwise be impossible.

PPS. Any comments or questions should be directed at me: martin AT kickstartdaily DOT com

The ebook you can feel good about buying even before you download it.
