Holiday gift buying can be an emotionally and financially gruelling experience, so Canadian author Cindy O’Neil is aiding philanthropy with her newly released Healing Circle Puzzles book, and helping shoppers give three times at once.
Healing Circle Puzzles – Word Searches beyond words is a unique book that Cindy began creating in the winter of 2001 after having just been released from a month long stay in hospital and diagnosed with severe, systemic Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA).
From December 1st to 31st O’Neil is donating $4 from each Healing Circle Puzzles book sold. The donations will be divided evenly, with $2 each going to the Nature Conservancy of Canada (NCC) and the Canadian Red Cross (CRC) respectively.
“The people who buy my book are showing their trust in me, and supporting me as an independent writer. Every purchase is a big deal to me because of the sense of connection it builds.” says the author. “I want to extend that connection and say thank you by giving to society at large.”
Online purchasing is available from the book’s website https://www.passionatepuzzler.com
The public is invited to join Cindy for this upcoming book signing of Healing Circle Puzzles in Kingston, Ontario:
Saturday, December 15th
11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
The Purple Door Books & Gifts
376 Barrie St., Kingston ON 7K7 3T4
I haven’t been able to donate blood for years due to my health. Before the RA struck I donated regularly.” states Cindy. “That’s one of the reasons I chose the CRC. Both organizations do incredibly important work while maintaining higher than 87% efficiency in spending. The donation helps the organizations and people who buy the book because they get to give three times at once.
About the book:
Healing Circle Puzzles combines original paintings and photos with unusually crafted word searches. Full colour images by very talented, undiscovered artists are featured throughout. Puzzle themes encompass things that helped Cindy’s healing: positive thoughts, music, books, therapies, foods and more.
Cindy, Susan Brecht (owner of The Purple Door) and I hope that you’ll join us for this special book signing event. Healing Circle Puzzles truly makes for the perfect gift for that hard to buy for person on your list!
