Sellers Publishing series generates more than $350,000 for charity
Sellers Publishing is happy to announce that as it approaches the 10-year anniversary of publishing it’s book, “Fifty Things To Do When You Turn Fifty.” Donations paid to cancer-related charities from book proceeds have reached $350,000. The book, and each of the seven other milestone birthday books that follow it, offers essays by celebrities, pundits, humorists and experts from various walks of life. Some of the contributors offer advice based on their own experiences of reaching milestone ages. Others offer advice based on their particular areas of expertise.
“We are a relatively small publisher, but we’ve been very fortunate to receive written contributions for these books from some of the most respected authors, spiritual leaders, business experts and celebrities in the world,” said Ronnie Sellers, president and publisher of Sellers Publishing, as well as editor for the first books in the series. “Ten thousand people turn 50 every day, so there’s tremendous demand for books that offer guidance about how to make your senior years productive and secure. The fact that these books are still as relevant now as they were 10 years ago speaks to the quality of their content. Small publishers can still do big things with the help of great content providers. Of course the most gratifying aspect of this program is that its success has resulted in substantial contributions to the fight against cancer.”
Sellers began donating the royalties generated by the books to non-profit organizations dedicated to curing cancer in 2005. Over the next 10 years, Sellers Publishing has made donations to more than 10 cancer related non-profits.
“Fifty Things To Do When You Turn Fifty” is a hopeful, upbeat and informative compilation of 50 essays written by world famous artists, pundits and experts on the subject of turning 50. When taken as a whole, the essays comprise a veritable instruction manual on how to make the experience of turning 50 a rewarding one on all levels. The essayists cover such diverse topics as putting the past behind you (Garrison Keillor), making peace with the mirror (Bobbi Brown), bulking up your portfolio’s defenses (Bill Gross) and wearing comfortable clothes (Diane Von Furstenberg). Despite the diversity of topics, tones and perspectives, the reader is left with one very positive message by the end of the book: accept and take care of yourself, put your affairs in order and the years that are ahead of you will be the best years of your life.
