Manhattan, NY, September 01, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- Jenna D. Barry, author of “A Wife’s Guide to In-laws: How to Gain Your Husband’s Loyalty Without Killing His Parents,” is celebrating Women’s Friendship Month by launching a promotion to help women war survivors in places like Rwanda and Bosnia. One day only -- on September 24, 2009-- Barry will donate 15% of the profits from book sales to Women For Women International.
“A few weeks ago, I read the book ‘The Other Side of War: Women’s Stories of Survival and Hope’ by Zainab Salbi,” explains Barry. “I was very moved by the photos and amazing stories of women whose lives have been devastated by war.” She continues, “When rebels attacked one woman’s village, they killed her husband and cut off her hands while she was changing her baby’s diaper.” When Barry realized the book was written by the CEO and President of Women For Women International, she knew she wanted to do something to help.
Founded in 1993, Women for Women International changes the world one woman at a time by providing women survivors of war with the resources to move from crisis and poverty to stability and self-sufficiency. Through sponsorship programs, survivors (1) receive financial aid for food, water, and medicine, (2) get the tools and training they need to provide food for themselves and their children, and (3) make a one-to-one connection through exchanging letters with a “sister” across the globe.
“Because my book, ‘A Wife’s Guide to In-laws,’ was written for women by a woman, I decided that Women’s Friendship Month would be a perfect time to donate profits to Women For Women International,” says Barry. “Others can help by purchasing my book on September 24, 2009 via my website www.WifeGuide.org, Amazon.com, BarnesandNoble.com, etc.”
National Women's Friendship Month first began as National Women's Friendship Day in 1999. Created by Kappa Delta Sorority for all women, the day offered a chance for women to celebrate their special bonds with female friends. Recently the celebration was expanded to the entire month of September.
“I am very excited about this event because it is a win-win situation for women all over the world,” Jenna declares. “Wives who read my book will learn how to strengthen their marriage, and women war survivors will find the hope and help needed to rebuild their lives.”
“Jenna equips wives to get out of the victim role; she empowers them to have strong marriages in the face of difficult in-laws.”
