We continue to receive requests from volunteers to deliver donated books to their local libraries.
Over the past few months, books have been sent to Florida, Indiana, Louisiana and a PDF version of the book has been sent to the Phillipines where it will be photocopied and distributed to local libraries.
We continue to give away the Kindle version through special free download promotions on Amazon to meet our mission of expanding access to the book for people unable to afford one and all proceeds from the sale of books continue to support our efforts for advocacy.
Thank you for your continued interest in helping make lives better for kids with special needs.
Advocacy4All is an ongoing effort of Drive4Rebecca to help parents become stronger advocates for their children with special needs.
I wrote The Special Needs Parent Handbook to share our experiences raising our daughter Rebecca.
We have received grants to enable us to donate copies of the book to libraries and have enlisted new volunteers and have now delivered copies to hundreds of libraries.
We have continued to give away the Kindle version through special free download promotions on Amazon to meet our mission of expanding access to the book for people unable to afford one and all proceeds from the sale of books continue to support our efforts for advocacy.
Sean Adams, reporter for 880 WCBS am radio yesterday, came to visit us yesterday.
He did a very extensive interview and a one minute plus segment will be airing sometime in the next few weeks (1 minute is very long for news stations like WCBS).
In his interview he spent a good deal of time asking about The Special Needs Parent Handbook. He said he will notify me a few days before the segment will be broadcast. Once we find out the date, we will schedule a few days to give away copies of the book for Kindle through the free book promotion available from Amazon.
Over the past nine months through these promotions we have given away several thousand copies of the book to help meet our mission of helping parents to become stronger advocates for their children with special needs.
We continue to donate copies of The Special Needs Parent Handbook - Special Edition - to libraries and with the help of volunteers the book is available in hundreds of locations so that parents unable to afford copies can gain access to the book.
We just received word that Kirkus Reviews will include the book in their April issue and we continue to donate money to organizations that help parents become stronger advocates for their children with special needs.
Thanks again for your continued interest and support.

Our mission with Advocacy4All is to help families become stronger advocates for their children with special needs. We are pleased to report that we have continued to accomplish our goals by expanding upon our library donation program and having given away over 3000 downloads of The Special Needs Parent Handbook in both English and Spanish for Kindle through a special promotion on Amazon.Once the promotion ended, we continued to draw attention to the book which resulted in sales that raised nearly $1,000 to fund our initiatives.Thank you for your support and we look forward to reporting more terrific results from future Amazon promotions (we can give away downloads for several days each quarter).Regards,Jonathan SingerDrive4Rebecca
