Online Benefit for I Matter Too - Helping Orphaned, Abused & Neglected Children

Do you want to help those in need, but feel like you don't really get the opportunity? Here's a simple way to give back to the community and help kids while adding some new children's books to your library!

I Matter Too is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization that mentors and tutors orphaned, abused, and neglected children through the love of Jesus Christ.

Since 2007 when Stacia Hepburn founded it here in Tampa, I Matter Too has been partnering abused and orphaned children 4 years old and up with adult mentors and tutors to provide the support and attention every kid deserves. Each mentor/tutor travels to their students and helps guide them through spiritual, emotional, and academic avenues in order to serve as a positive influence, friend, and role model.

Through its volunteers, fundraisers, events, and kind donations, I Matter Too is always working hard to improve the lives of children who need love and support.

In an effort to help raise money and awareness for this great organization, from July 1st through September 30th, 100% of my author proceeds from all online sales of both children's books, "Four Lucky Leaves" and "Hi, God", will be donated to benefit I Matter Too.

As parents, we understand how vital it is that our children know they are loved. Every book purchased will benefit I Matter Too in order to help in the growth and support of those kids who may not have someone to remind them of just how special they are.

Please help me to raise money and awareness to benefit this wonderful cause by purchasing a book. Be an advocate - share this campaign with your friends and family!

Both books can be purchased at They can also be purchased through other online retailers such as Amazon and Barnes & Noble.

Thank you and God bless!

“A four-leaf clover in a world of threes sometimes felt lonely, left out in the breeze.”

When a four-leaf clover is bullied for being different, he tries to change his appearance in order to blend in. Convinced his extra leaf has doomed him to remain an outcast, a new friend makes him realize that sometimes the only way to fit in is to stand out.
