Well, ready? It isn’t going to happen on its own. This dreams needs my help (and particularly yours) to become a reality…
Of late, the government of my home country has kept cutting the funds alloted to the Venezuelan branch of Fe y Alegria, an international organization whose goal in life has always been the education of the lower classes. The logic behind this high-level decision is pervasive but sound: Keep the lower classes ignorant, so they remain gullible as hell. The more gullible they stay, the more votes they cast in their favor whenever the government looses the strings of the budgetary purse.
The equation is simple; anyone who fails to see it is just a moron. Of course, this has been done in a very hush-hush fashion, under the threat that if this information leaks out, the money that comes out from the government will be further reduced…
Therefore, to make up for this injustice I’m creating the CHANGE THE WORLD… ONE BOOK AT A TIME.
The premise of this program is simple:
This time I’m giving away cash to several worthy causes, Like Fe y Alegria and a few Environmetalist projects I favor. And YOU get to decide how much money they get : When one of my books hits either Amazon or BN’s top 100, I’ll donate $500 in local currency to Fe y Alegria. When a book hits the top 20 at either Amazon or BN, I’ll double the donation. AND IF we drive one of my titles to the USA Today or New York Times bestseller lists, I’ll donate a total of $3,000 to this endeavor…
What can you do to help? Just spread the word around. Facebook and Tweet this project around like crazy… Below is the list of books that will be included in this… there’s one for EVERYONE’S taste!
ECO STATION http://www.amazon.com/dp/B0048EK054
KARAOKE DUO http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00A8DIM6S
The Clayton Chronicles http://www.amazon.com/dp/B005GO5WQW
AI Rebellion http://www.amazon.com/dp/B0035G07CC
This will be a LOT of money; after all, the average Venezuelan minimal wage is little below $200 PER month.

Please disappoint the cynical individual in me that has such a very low opinion of the human race in general. I know we can make it with everybody’s help.
