Not only is this award an amazing seal of notoriety for authors, but the Speak Talk Radio organization gives back in a charitable way by donating handmade colorful pillowcases to women and children in homeless shelters via Enchanted Makeovers, a 501(c)3 organization. This rewarding venture helps transform homeless shelters into bright and happy homes.
