Last Wednesday, I was among the many Americans preparing for the midnight release of the third Twilight Saga movie Eclipse. My teenage daughter invited friends over to play trivia games, eat chocolate covered strawberries and pose next to life-size posters of the two heart throbs from the movie.
But, as many Americans choose whether they are team Edward or team Jacob, the author of the book series, Stephenie Meyer, has already proven she is on team American Red Cross. She released a novella early in June titled The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner. One dollar from each copy sold in the United States will be donated to the American Red Cross for relief efforts.
As of July 1st more than a million copies have been sold - thus a million dollars have been donated to the Red Cross. If you are already caught up in the Twilight phenomenon or just looking for a quick summer read, pick up a copy of this new book. What a great way to give to the Red Cross.
