When I announced the publication of my book (Can Openers:Essays About Life and Love), I promised that I would donate all of the proceeds to Philadelphia area charities.
I made my first donation to TE Care, a Chester County non-profit that Theresa and I work with. Details about them can be found at TECare.org.
I have posted a receipt from TE Care for my first donation ($350), and also a screenshot from the publisher of my first royalty payment ($312.36). I gave TE Care more than I received, and I will pay the taxes on the royalty payment. My only wish is that the payments had been higher.
