book reviews on the way

I will be reviewing a couple books in the near future. The authors gave me free eBooks in exchange for my honest reviews. I sometimes request a token payment of $5, but these two authors did not pay a single penny. The reviews will be posted in the near future, as soon as I finish reading the books.  Please stay tuned.

I believe that this is worth sharing:

Jacksonville Beach, FL – Children of Fallen Patriots Foundation, a national organization dedicated to honoring the sacrifices of military heroes by providing their children with college scholarships and educational counseling, announced Kendra E. Davenport will become the Foundation’s new president.
“Our board and I believe Kendra’s professional experience, proven fundraising track record and deep personal understanding of military family life, uniquely qualify her for the role,” said David Y. Kim, Founder and CEO of Children of Fallen Patriots Foundation. “We are excited to have Kendra join the Fallen Patriots family.”
Davenport, who was selected following an extensive nationwide search, brings more than 27 years of nonprofit experience to the leadership role, which she will begin onOctober 1, 2015.
“I am thrilled to join Children of Fallen Patriots in its noble mission,” said Davenport. “I cannot think of a better way to pay tribute to the memories of those who have given their lives in service to our country than to help their children receive a college education.”
As president, Davenport will manage the growing demands on the Foundation to ensure access to education by college-bound children who have lost a parent in the line of duty. It is estimated that nearly 20,000 more children will require assistance in the future. Since 2002, Children of Fallen Patriots has provided more than $9.8 million in total assistance, including college scholarships, supplemental grants and educational counseling to military children.           
“We’re proud of what we have accomplished through the Foundation to date and we recognize that it is poised for significant growth,” said Fallen Patriots Chairman of the Board, Thomas McGann. “Kendra will help us capitalize on our successes and harness the collective support of our Board and key constituents to take the Foundation to the next level.”
Davenport comes to the Foundation from Africare, a Washington, D.C. based organization with annual revenue in excess of $50 million that promotes sustainable development in Sub-Saharan Africa. At Africare, Davenport served initially as Chief Development and Communications Officer, before becoming Chief of Staff and eventually, Vice President of Institutional Advancement and External Affairs. Prior to Africare, Davenport served in leadership roles at Project HOPE, the National SIDS Alliance and other national and international nonprofits.
