Hunger is Not a Game. - New book on

I promised all that I would reveal my Hunger Games short piece. Well as of two minutes ago, I uploaded "Hunger Is Not a Game" to I am expecting that it should be published within 24 hours. Okay folks as I mentioned, 100% of the royalties from this essay shall be donated to a charity which shall be chosen somewhat similar to the choosing of tributes in The Hunger Games. No Charity shall have to give a blood fingerprint. 
This shall be the method and this webpage shall be "Panem" Central in relation to this charitable giving: 


1st -  24 nominees (charitable organizations that deal with poverty eradication, alleviation, or anti-slavery movements) shall be chosen out of all charities that readers shall nominate by leaving a comment on conradpowell.blogspot (dot) com. For any given distribution, the reaping period for nomination a charity shall open the 30th of each month and shall close by 5 PM Eastern Standard Time on the 15th of the next month.

2nd – Between the 15th of each month and the 28th of each month, the readers shall vote on which of the 24 charities shall be the victor.

3rd – On the 29th of the said month, the royalties that have accrued to my Amazon KDP account which I shall display as verifiable for transparency sake, shall be distributed via whatever method the winning charity desires.

4th – I will post on conradpowell.blogspot (dot) com the proof of such charitable gift. This cycle shall continue as long as royalties accrue for the said book.

5th – “May the odds be ever in their favor.”

Thank you all for your attention to what I am sure will be a great experiment in the spirit of giving. May we always remember in the words of John F Kennedy, 

“For of those to whom much is given, much is required. And when at some future date the high court of history sits in judgement on each of us recording whether in our brief span of service we fulfilled our responsibilities to the state our success or failure, in whatever office we hold, will be measured by the answers to four questions: First, were we truly men of courage with the courage to stand up to ones enemies and the courage to stand up, when necessary, to ones associates the courage to resist public pressure, as well as private greed? Secondly, were we truly men of judgement with perceptive judgment of the future as well as the past of our mistakes as well as the mistakes of others with enough wisdom to know what we did not know and enough candor to admit it. Third, were we truly men of integrity men who never ran out on either the principles in which we believed or the men who believed in us men whom neither financial gain nor political ambition could ever divert from the fulfilment of our sacred trust? Finally, were we truly men of dedication with an honor mortgaged to no single individual or group, and comprised of no private obligation or aim, but devoted solely to serving the public good and the national interest? Courage, judgement, integrity, dedication, these are the historic qualities which, with Gods help will characterize our Government’s conduct in the stormy years that lie ahead.”
