This was a no-brainer, so I don't know why it's taken me so long to post the news.
All profits from the sale of the book will be donated to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. I could say something cute like "Hey, not only are you getting a book of essays that will ROCK your world, but you're also helping a great cause," but I won't (even though I kind of just did).
The truth is, the people who are going to buy BASEMENT SONGS are already fans and I want them to know that they're helping out our family and thousands of others. If that inspires more people to give the book a chance, then that's icing on the cake.
