A lovely lady emailed me this feedback on All I Want for Christmas is Rain yesterday and it really made my day. I was so hoping that my book would make it out to where it was needed – to the drought affected farmers and their kids. And, at least in some small way, it is! This is great and it just makes me so happy. I really hope that the kids (and their parents) that receive it like it – that is the real test! Would love to hear more feedback.
“Hi Cori, I just wanted to tell you how wonderful I think your book is. We have been fundraising for farmers suffering from the drought and I am sending out your book in my most recent care pack for the kids for Christmas. I am working with a group of people called Rural Assist. We introduced a cookbook initially and then later a calenda…r to help raise the money. So far we have raised almost $40,000 which we have used towards paying down farmers debt by helping pay for feed bills, power bills or sometimes just a new pair of boots. Where ever there is a need, we chip in and do what we can. I have only just discovered your beautiful book and found it at a little cafe in Dayboro but I have looked into stockists already to purchase more copies as the need arises. I can’t wait for the feedback on it as I am sure that it will be a most loved and cherished book by the children that we support who will certainly relate to it. Have a lovely evening.Here is hoping that it is a good omen and they have rain soon. Thank you for directing some much needed focus back on our farmers. Have a lovely Christmas x”
