Donations

What is your process for donating money to the nominated charities?

On 30 June and 31 December each year, we will calculate how many copies of Life Without Cameron and how many mini art prints we have sold. We will then make a lump sum donation within thirty days to the  Stillbirth Foundation Australia and the Heart Foundation. For every copy of Life Without Cameron that is sold, we will donate $2.00 to the Stillbirth Foundation Australia. For every mini art print that is sold, we will donate $2.00 to the Heart Foundation.

Can I request to see proof of your donation?

Yes. You may email us at any time to request proof of our most recent donation to either of the organisations above.
