A percentage of the proceeds from sales of Amalie's novels go to support one of a number of agencies committed to making the world a better place.
Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation
Branson Wallace suffers from Pulmonary Fibrosis in The Clay Lion. When Amalie began writing the novel, she had never heard of the disease. She chose Pulmonary Fibrosis because it strikes both the young and the elderly, frequently results in death, and in many cases, has no known cause or cure.
Although Branson is a fictional character, thousands of real people struggle and die from Pulmonary Fibrosis each day. Amalie now helps the community by spreading awareness about the disease. If you are interested in finding out more ways that you can help or would just like to become more informed about the disease, please visit www.pulmonaryfibrosis.org by clicking the logo below.
One of the story lines woven through Among the Shrouded deals with the horror of human trafficking. Amalie volunteers at high schools spreading awareness about modern day slavery to young women who may be at risk if they are unaware of its presence in our society.
In 2014, Among the Shrouded readers donated over 200 bras to Free the Girls, an organization dedicated to helping formly trafficked women return to society in Mozambique. Click on the logo to learn how you can help.
Childhood Cancer Awareness
In April of 2010, tragedy struck the Turner family when six-year-old daughter Lauren was diagnosed with leukemia. As a friend of the family, Amalie watched helplessly as the little girl battled for several years, finally succumbing to the disease in October of 2013. You can watch a video about Lauren's story here.
To honor Lauren's memory, Amalie completed the Charleston Half-Ironman, raising funds for the children's ward of the hospital where Lauren spent many months of her short life. She also supports childhood cancer research by donating a portion of the proceeds from sales of The Clay Lion to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital and Cookies for Kids' Cancer.
