Sherry at Flipping Pages for All Ages has an awesome project going on right now! She's collecting books to benefit St. Anne's Institute, a not for profit organization that helps at-risk girls ages 12-18 in a variety of ways- through residential programs, therapeutic and educational programs, and outreach programs as well. However, due to a lack of funding and tight competition for the funds they do have, the library of books available to the girls is not what it could be. Eric Luper, an author, was on on the advisory board for St. Anne's and talks about his tour of the library and work to rebuild it here.
We can do something about this! All you have to do is go through your bookshelves, find middle grade, young adult or other books you'd like to donate, and fill out the form in this post and you'll get the address to send your donations to! Plus, your generosity will be rewarded with a chance to enter to win some great prizes, including gift cards to a variety of book retailers!
Books have been a huge part of my life for as long as I can remember and I can't imagine my life today without them. My love of reading is a huge part of who I am and this is a great opportunity to share that love with other people. I'm definitely donating and I hope you decide to donate as well.
