Air Force Enlisted Village Selected as One of Four Charities to Receive Proceeds From New Children’s Christmas Book “Four a.m. December 25”


4a-m-cover-lowresAround the world, the gifts of Christmas arrive in beautiful and unexpected ways in the wee hours of the morning. But closer to home, one little girl knows that the gift she wants most will never arrive until a soldier comes home.

“Four a.m. December 25” honors the spirit of the holiday season by donating all profits from book sales to worthy veterans’ organizations. Air Force Enlisted Village is honored to be one of those charities.

When his first two books Chickadees at Night and The Chickadee Spirit netted him over $50,000, Bill O. Smith, school principal and author, decided to write his third book, Four A.M. December 25th, and donate all the profits to veterans related charities around the country.

Smith is dedicating this book and donating the proceeds to honor his late father, Captain Robert A. Smith, who served in the Army Air Force during WWII.   He reached out to many veterans related charities (those highly rated by Charity Navigator) in August of 2015 and based on all the responses, he chose to support four:  Air Force Enlisted Village, Air Warriors Courage Foundation, Our Military Kids, INC, and Cherryland VFW Post 2780 Relief Fund.

“Four a.m. December 25” is a lovely story to add to your Christmas book collection.  You can watch a video reading of the book HERE before you purchase it. Or, you may also purchase the book through Amazon.com.
