Helping to Raise the Consciousness of the Planet One Book at a Time.

I get asked the question a lot, which one of your authors has made a million dollars? The answer is, no one. This is not the goal of our publishing house. Yes, this would be nice, don’t get me wrong, but our mission is not just numbers. We are unique in that we take on books that big publishers would not. Because to us it’s not all about the money a book will pull in. Instead for Richter Publishing, it’s about the authors and the story they need to tell. A burning desire to get this out into the world to help others. If your story can impact the lives of others and help them through their struggles, then the book is a success. We do not censor the authors story. We tell the cold, raw truth.
 
Our authors consist of men and women who have survived cancer, mental disorders, domestic abuse, rape, sex trafficking, bullying, drunk driving and more. These people have gone through hell and back. Their stories can help others that have gone through similar incidents and know that they are not alone. That you too can get through it and become successful on the other end.
 
So no, it’s not about the books making millions of dollars, but spreading knowledge and hope. If you can change even one persons life with your words, isn’t that worth it?

President of Richter Publishing Spends four Months in Asia Volunteering at Various Non-Profits.

Tara Richter, the president of Richter Publishing, returns home from four months abroad. She spent the summer months of April-July 2019 living and volunteering in Vietnam, Thailand and Japan. She ventured out on this sabbatical to explore new cultures and give back. This amazing trip was an opportunity to actually live in these countries, get to know the locals and help out non-profits.

Blue Dragon Farm Vietnam Tara Richter

The first stop was in Hanoi, Vietnam where Ms. Richter lived along with 17 other people in her group. They volunteered their sweat and muscle working on the farms that were donated to the Blue Dragon Children’s Foundation. The group worked clearing the land to prepare it to grow crops later. Blue Dragon relies on the many amazing volunteers who commit their time, energy and expertise to working with them in Vietnam and around the world.

Blue Dragon Children’s Foundation provides exceptional care to Vietnamese children and families in crisis while creating long-term change for a better world. You can go to their website and help them out from wherever you live too.

The next stop on the journey was Thailand. A beautiful country filled with mountains and thousands of Buddhist temples. Tara spent lots of time visiting the shrines and speaking with the monks learning more about the Buddhist ways. The group she was traveling with first visited the Wildflower Home based in Chiang Mai.

Wildflower Home Thailand Tara Richter

The Wildflower Home is a temporary shelter for women and children who are coming out of situations such as sex trafficking, domestic violence and sever poverty. The grounds are self sufficient, so the women work to grow their own food and do daily chores in the homes the live in. They have a mushroom farm that now is their source of income to sustain the non-profit. However they are in need of donations such as clothes and diapers. Ms. Richter and some of the group bought clothes in Vietnam to donate for the children once they arrived. They spent time playing with the children and working alongside the women. (Their website is currently down for more information.)

Also in Thailand they took a day to help out at the Elephant Freedom Project. Located in Northern Thailand, near Chiang Mai city, this project was formed in cooperation with a Lanna Thai family who has lived and worked with elephants for two generations. The family is glad for the opportunity to transition from elephant riding to a more evolved form of elephant tourism that provides a better life for the elephants, where they will be treated with the love and respect they deserve. The herd includes elephants who used to labor in the dangerous logging industry and were later used for elephant riding. By visiting this project you are making it possible for these elephants to enjoy a more natural, peaceful life.

Elephant Sanctuary Thailand Tara Richter

Ms. Richter’s group spent an amazing day feeding the elephants, walking with them and giving them a bath in the river. Unfortunately in Thailand most of their elephants are abused for tourism. You will see baby elephants chained up and removed from their mothers for viewing. Or people paying to ride them which is not good for the elephants. This sanctuary helps them live a more natural life while still allowing people to enjoy their presence.                                                                                                                                                     Elephant Sanctuary Thailand Tara Richter 3

Elephants spend about 12-14 hours a day eating. They can eat anywhere from 200 – 600 pounds of food depending upon their size. So it takes a lot of resources to keep these sanctuaries going. By donating and spending a day volunteering with the elephants, you are helping to keep these places alive to save more animals.

Ms. Richter is back from the orient and loved all her time that she spent there volunteering with her group. Even though she has much work to catch up on with her authors here in Florida, she is planning another two to three month trip back to Asia in the summer of 2020. She has plans to hold writing workshops in Thailand and Bali. During this time she will be going back to these non-profits to bring more supplies and new people to volunteer and give back.
