Update #3 Annual Windflower Holiday Book Sale


Thank you everybody who is supporting this year’s event. We are pleased to report that we are up to 62 Sgt. Windflower books have been sold to date. That means we are well on our way to meeting our goals to help Minwaashin Lodge in Ottawa.

Just a reminder about this great organization. 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.

The money donated 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.

For more information about Minwaashin Lodge and to make your own donation please visit:


Special Offer

If you make a donation to Minwaashin Lodge I will donate an additional $5.00. Just let me know that you’ve made a contribution. In addition, I will send a signed copy of a Sgt. Windflower Mystery, to you, or a friend or relative of choice, anywhere in the world.

E-mail me at mike54martin@yahoo.ca and I’ll send the other book along. And of course, add my additional donation to the cause.
