We believe that every individual has the ability to make a difference in our world, and we want to give our readers a chance to bring attention to a cause that is important to them.

Every month, we will ask you to submit the charity of your choice (please send submissions to with “November Day it Forward” in the subject line). Tell us what the charity is about, why it is important to you, and anything else you feel is important to share with us.

Your submissions will be reviewed by bestselling author Sylvia Day and she will select one to personally contribute to for the month. The selected charity will be featured in the next month’s Day it Forward to bring more awareness to its cause and allow for readers of Beyond Words to donate as well.

The submission chosen for the month of October comes from Rosanna Malecki:

“Hello … [the] charity that is near & dear to my heart is  JBJ SoulKitchen. You get a 3 course meal for $10 and then pay it forward for someone who cannot afford to. They provide meals for the less fortunate. For people in need who go have a meal, if they cannot pay for their meal, they pay it forward by volunteering at the kitchen. It is a beautiful place.

Sincerely, Rosanna”
