Back to Basics, to help me raise money for my youth groups! I hope you're enjoying the book, and I'd love to hear your suggestions for future books, including ways I could improve the e-books (like making them a smaller file size - which I've done with the new one, more pictures, fewer pictures, different sections, and so on!)
In response to your e-mails and comments, I present to you the second of the e-books I'm putting together entitled Hair Care Products: Shampoos & Conditioners. This one's even longer - 194 pages (56,305 words!) and contains more recipes for shampoo and conditioners than I can count! I've included all the information from the blog about the chemistry of our hair, surfactants, cationic ingredients, and every other ingredient you'll find in our hair care products.
I wasn't, however, able to include the surfactant chart in the e-book as it was being really annoying about the formatting, so here's the link to that free download.
If you want to take a peek at the Table of Contents, click on the link!
I'm asking for a $25 donation for the book through Paypal or Hyperwallet (you can reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org). Every penny of your donation goes to the Rated T for Teen youth groups we run at the Chilliwack and Yarrow libraries, and at the alternative education school in Chilliwack. (For more information on our groups, click here.) We're expanding to include a pregnant and parenting teen activity group run by a lovely volunteer, and we've just started the once monthly Rockin' Out with the Girls, an all girl Rock Band day!
If you click on the little button below, it'll automatically donate $25 in Canadian funds to my group. The book will come to you by e-mail shortly thereafter.
A quick note: It might take me a few hours to send you out the book 'cause I sometimes leave the house for work or my youth groups and I can't check my e-mail or send out attachments until I get to my home computer.
Why am I asking for more for this book than I did for the last? This is really two books in one. I had planned to write a surfactants book then one on hair care, but I realized it would be way more handy to have all the information about hair care in one book instead of two separate PDF files that make you have to refer back to the other one, so I decided to include everything together.
I'm currently working on the third book (which might end up being two at this rate!) - Creating Lotions & Creams - which I'm hoping to have out in a few weeks! And I'm putting together an additional book on other things you can create with surfactants like body washes, facial cleansers, cleaning products, and more as an adjunct to this book. Again, please send me any suggestions for e-books that might interest you! (I'm thinking about a mineral make-up one as well...)
Thanks so much for supporting our youth groups. Your donations helped us purchase chocolate making supplies for the alternative education centre craft group, a few replacement chocolate moulds that were broken in the process of removing said chocolates, and some scrapbooking paper so we could make some adorable packages suitable for gift giving. And your donations helped us buy Rock Band 3 and the keyboard for the Rockin' Out with the Girls for Friday and the Rated T for Teen video game group and Hallowe'en party on Saturday. Your donations will buy yet more chocolate for the Chilliwack group on Thursday night!
In short, your donations made our groups even more awesome than they were before, and I cannot thank you enough! Have I mentioned I love the readers of this blog?
