"To keep children reading, we have to let them."
...And when they need books, we have to supply them.
This month we see beautiful in BOOKS and we see beautiful in GIVING them and we see beautiful in ST. ANNE'S CENTER HOMELESS SHELTER.
If you're here for the blog hop, get excited, because when you hop on we'll donate a children's book in your honor to St. Anne's Children's Library.
Our goals is to have 10,000 books donated, hence "PROJECT 10,000" was born.
To date, we have teachers and students across the country hosting book drives. We have professors at Universities hosting book drives. We have children giving their own books. We have children asking for books to be donated to St. Anne's in lieu of birthday gifts. We have people digging into their own pockets, purchasing a new book, and sending it there themselves. We have seen beautiful and we are creating more of it!!
"To acquire the habit of reading is to construct for yourself a refuge from almost all the miseries of life." ~ W. Somerset Maugham
