Proceeds from sales of the “Frugal Travel Guy Handbook” will aid wounded soldiers.
December 6, 2010 (HILTON HEAD, SC) – Rick Ingersoll, author of the “Frugal Travel Guy Handbook” and Frugal Travel Guy blog, is commemorating Pearl Harbor Day this year by announcing that he will donate profits and proceeds (above production costs) from all sales of his “Handbook” to the Wounded Warrior Fund until further notice.
“Our men and women in uniform who have been wounded in the line of duty have sacrificed so much for all of us,” Ingersoll said. “This is the least I can do to support their contributions on our behalf.”
The Wounded Warrior Fund is part of the Wounded Warrior Project, a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization headquartered in Jacksonville, FL, with additional program offices located in New York City and Washington D.C. Its mission is to honor and empower wounded soldiers and “to foster the most successful, well-adjusted generation of wounded warriors in this nation’s history,” according to its website. It provides immediate and direct aid to wounded soldiers.
“I certainly want to be a part of that,” Ingersoll said.
The “Frugal Travel Guy Handbook” is a slim paperback in which Ingersoll shares tips and tricks for frugal travel and teaches readers how to use techniques he has perfected to significantly reduce their travel budget forever. Topics include: Fare wars, Fare Mistakes, Frequent flyer miles, good credit equals free travel, consumer promotions, banking and financial service promotions, how to be “bumped” to earn travel vouchers, which credit cards offer the best travel rewards, Rewards Network dining, and rental car promotions.
The “Frugal Travel Guy Handbook” can be purchased at Amazon.com in either paperback ($8.97) or Kindle format ($6.99 Kindle), or at www.createspace.com/3464835. The latter source will maximize the contribution to the Wounded Warriors since the publisher does not incur listing fees.
