New York, NY (PRWEB) December 7, 2005
Top-rated syndicated radio host and best-selling author, Dr. Laura Schlessinger, will kick off an online "boutique" featuring her personally designed and handcrafted jewelry at noon on Monday, December 5th, through her web site (http://www.drlaura.com). All of the proceeds benefit Operation Family Fund, located in Ridgecrest, California, which provides financial assistance to families of military and civilian personnel who have died or have been severely disabled as part of Operation Enduring Freedom and Operation Iraqi Freedom. Dr. Laura has done this for more than five years. Her son, Deryk, has enlisted in the US Army and Dr. Laura considers herself best known as the “proud mother of an American soldier.”
Typically, the holiday boutique raises at least $30,000. The pieces range in price from $500 to $2,000 and even when the online boutiques are not in session, commissioned necklaces, complete with a personal phone-call greeting/design consultation are available through her Web site, http://www.drlaura.com.
In January, Harper-Collins will release her ninth book, Bad Childhood - Good Life and she is working on Ten MORE Stupid Things Women Do To Mess Up Their Lives. She's a best selling author of eight adult books (including 7 New York Times’ Bestsellers) and four children's books, which range from the provocative (New York Times chart topper The Proper Care & Feeding of Husbands) to the poignant (the children's book Why Do You Love Me?).
She also recently began touring with her own one-woman show DR. LAURA: IN MY NEVER TO BE HUMBLE OPINION, which has enjoyed four sold-out performances in California. Upcoming dates include three performances at The Irvine Barclay Theatre in Irvine, CA on Friday, January 27th, and Saturday, January 28th at 8pm, and Sunday, January 29th at 3pm.
