THAT'S MY HOPE: FEATURING A GALLERY OF MULTI-GENERATIONAL ARTWORK is out of print.
I think "Hero" and "Hope" are valuable resources for families, but I personally do not know anyone who is affected by loss or injury. How might I contribute book copies for families who may need them?
Consider purchasing a book and donating it to an individual or organization that can benefit from the topic.
Examples of individuals or organizations to consider donating to include: Special Operations Warrior Foundation; a teacher/educator or counselor who works with children in grades 1-6; librarian; worship leader; local or state VFW or American Legion; non-profit that assists military families; military post library; military servicemember; military family member or family resource liaison/leader; or bereavement camps/centers.
We donate a portion of the proceeds of book sales to selected organizations that help military families.
My organization works with bereaved children and would like permission to copy the "Hero Pages" from THE HERO IN MY POCKET for group use. Do we need permission to copy?
Thank you for following the instructions on the copyright page for groups to seek permission to use the "Hero Pages" in accordance with U.S. Copyright laws.
What's the "fine print" on making sure we comply with Trademark rules and regs?
