MINNEAPOLIS - June 2, 2014 - PRLog -- Minneapolis author and resident, Ryan Gladney, has announced a five-day fundraising campaign, during which 100% of author royalties from his recently released novel, Nine Lives of Adam Blake, will be pledged to Minnesota-based charitable organization Soul Source Foundation, a group that provides scholarships to students of the Kamasengre Mixed Secondary School on Rusinga Island, Kenya, as well as funding for women’s empowerment programs in Kenya. The fundraiser begins Monday, June 02, and will continue through Friday, June 06. More information is available at ryandgladney.com/2014/06/02/soul-source-fundraiser/

“It’s an exciting project,” Gladney said about the fundraising campaign. “I’ve known the Soul Source people for years, and it feels great to finally help out in a way that’s a bit more participatory than just writing a check. I think a lot of people would get on board with this. For $2.99, you get a good book and give to a great cause.”
