Letters from Christopher book author lists kid charities: Shanann? Lupus? Facebook outrage, lawsuits
Ms. Cadle is aware of the turmoil this tragedy has caused both families. She wants to honor Bella, Cece and baby Nico’s memory. In doing so Ms. Cadle is donating a portion of the sales of Letters from Christopher to the following charities in their names.
▪️The American Campaign for Prevention of Child Abuse and Family Violence
▪️Child Abuse, Sexual and Domestic Violence Prevention Center
▪️Feed our Hungry Children
I assume that she also wants to honor Shanann’s memory – maybe a domestic violence charity would be an appropriate choice.
It doesn’t matter, she made a book about a true crime as many others have in the past. She is donating the proceeds this book isn’t a witch hunt it’s a true crime book. I feel like this author has been ripped apart but she’s not the first nor the last to write a novel about a true crime. I believe if this is too soon for you then keep scrolling. This is not much different than being a part of these groups and reading all the posts and comments. Just saying. “Don’t shoot the messenger”
What about the Lupus Foundation?
What percentage of sales is being donated?
All profit should be donated but that’s just my opinion ?
I’ve never seen so many rude, bitchy, caddy, opinionated people in my life. Not speaking of this thread specifically, but on this page and other CW groups. Letters from Christopher doesn’t have to answer to any of us! She has done the work and put in all the time. We have no right to judge and have no idea what she has endured behind the scenes. Guess what, you DON’T have to buy the book…period. The people vested in this case want to buy the book, and don’t care to hear your demands or complaints. Do you walk through Barnes & Noble, stopping every person along the way to complain? Do you question how all authors got the information written in their books? It’s absolutely RIDICULOUS. How about saying THANK YOU to the author, because she didn’t have to share a thing with any of us. #dontberude
Idk how I feel about any of this. If he wants the truth out, he should tell the CBI. Not write letters to someone and make it a book. So egotistical.
The state of Michigan is suing Curtis Dawkins for 90% of his assets as “reimbursement” for the estimated $372,000 it has cost them to keep him in prison for the past 12 years.
Dawkins confessed to the 2004 murder of Thomas Bowman, is serving a life sentence, and in 2016 sold his story collection The Graybar Hotel to Scribner to the tune of $150,000.
The then 49-year-old Dawkins caught the eye of the Michigan department of treasury, who wants 90% of Dawkins “proceeds from publications, future payments, royalties” from the book. Michigan says it costs to $72,000 incarcerate him, and wants part of that $150,000 advance from Scribner, an imprint of Simon & Schuster.
Michigan is one of 40+ states where prisoners can be forced to pay for the cost of being imprisoned.
Wisconsin is among at least 40 states where certain inmates must pay daily room and board fees.
If I Did It was ghostwritten Pablo Fenjves and by O. J. Simpson.
Simpson hypothesized the murders of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman.
Simpson allegedly wasn’t involved in writing the book, but accepted $600,000 from ReganBooks and News Corporation to say he had written it give an interview.
Simpson was acquitted of the murders in a criminal trial but was found financially liable in a civil trial.
Originally called O. J. Simpson: If I Did It, Here’s How It Happened.
In August 2007, a bankruptcy court gave the book rights to the Goldman family to partially satisfy the civil judgment and the title was changed to If I Did It: Confessions of the Killer.
