Annual Holiday Event: Make a Donation. Get The Christmas Beaver Free

It’s time for the 10th Annual Windflower Holiday Book Event. For the last nine years I have been donating most of the profits from December book sales of Sgt. Windflower Mysteries to a worthy community cause. It’s a great way for me to give back a little to people and organizations who need so much, especially this time of year.

In the last nine years we have been able to donate over $6,000.00 to community groups who really need our support. We will be doing things a little different this year. You don’t have to buy any books to participate. In fact, we’ll give you a free book if you donate to our chosen cause which again this year is the Minwaashin Lodge in Ottawa. Minwaashin Lodge is a healing centre in Ottawa that provides a range of programs and services to First Nations, Inuit and Metis women and children who are survivors of domestic and other forms of violence, and who may also be suffering the effects of the residential school system.

The mission of Minwaashin Lodge is to provide wholistic programs and services for grandmothers, women, children and youth impacted by family violence and residential schooling. All programs and services are provided in the context of cultural beliefs and values as part of the healing journey.

Here’s how you can participate.

Make a Donation and Get a Free Book

If you make a donation, I will send you a copy of The Christmas Beaver. Not in stores and only available by order from Ottawa Press and Publishing. And only until Christmas.

The Christmas Beaver is a children’s book. But for children of all ages who believe in the magic of Christmas. 

I am making an upfront donation of $500.00 to Minwaashin Lodge. I know that this money will go to support First Nations, Inuit and Metis women and children to have a good meal and presents from Santa under the tree on Christmas morning. If you want to make a donation please visit

Canadian donors can receive a tax receipt for their contribution.

Just send me an email at and I’ll put The Christmas Beaver in the mail to you in time for Christmas.

Thank you for supporting the Annual Windflower Holiday Book Event and Minwaashin Lodge
