Hi everyone, your help is needed.
As I normally say, for a long road to be completed we must start with one little step.
You are not obliged to give anything, especially not monetary, but if you want to and can, the soul will be filled of a good deed. At least I think like this. whenever I can I try to make my charities and try to help the best I can.
In this case, if you buy the book you’re helping.
The Stories for Homes vol 2 is an Anthology of stories from several authors.
Published and unpublished writers come together to create an anthology of stories about what ‘home’ means.
55 writers are included in a second charity anthology that brings issues around housing, poverty and crisis to life through the power of storytelling. Volume One of the Stories for Homes Project raised over £3K for housing charity Shelter and raised awareness of housing issues. Volume Two of the anthology includes stories, poems and flash fiction and again all proceeds will be donated to the charity.

Praise for the Book
Emma Darwin, author of The Mathematics of Love, commented on the quality of writing in the anthology as: “A cornucopia of witty, tragic, elegant, raw, heart-warming and terrifying stories that take the idea of Home, play with it as only truly talented writers can, and all to help those who have no home at all.
Joanne Harris, author of Chocolat, said: “Stories give our imaginations a home. It’s good to see them helping to give people shelter in the real world, too…” reflecting the connection between the immediacy of housing crisis and the stories people tell about their lives around and within it.
Sally Swingewood, who also edited the collections, commented: “The Stories for Homes collections would not be possible without the generosity of a huge number of volunteers. By working together we have produced a book which will not only delight but also help address one of the biggest humanitarian crises facing modern society. In a world where migration, identity and belonging are in the news daily we have a duty to help everyone have a home in which they feel safe and settled. Stories for Homes is one way we can be part of the solution”
A dedicated website includes a further collection of flash fiction and poetry, real life experiences from people who have had housing problems or have experienced homelessness, as well as a series of articles from a professional working with homeless people.
All the proceeds for this book are going to go the charity Shelter and this is the dedication inside the book:
This anthology is dedicated to the victims and survivors of the Grenfell Tower fire 14 June 2017. You will never be forgotten.
