Everyone’s having Christmas in July sales, and I’m working on one for later in the month, because who doesn’t love a good deal?? But what if, along with the sales on material things, we brought the spirit of giving into the summer months as well?
We are working with the Wichita Children's Home on a book drive to give books to the children that come through their doors. We have a very big goal to buy one book for each child who they serve in the next year. Last year, 1,500 children were admitted to WCH as residents, so to purchase books for that many children will require us to raise $10,000. Usborne Books & More will provide a 50% match on all funds raised through its Literacy for a Lifetime program, getting us up to the $15,000 needed!
I am providing incentives for donating at least $25 to the drive, and for providing references to individuals or businesses who will donate at least $500. Go over to my Readers Turn Leaders VIP Group on Facebook or message me for more info, they’re pretty great incentives ;) To donate, go to wch.org/donate and put the amount of your donation in the “general donation” box. When you get to the payment page, make sure to change the description to “Usborne Book Drive.” You can also send a check to WCH at 7271 E 37th St N, Wichita, KS 67226 and put “Usborne Book Drive” in the memo line.
