Seeing Beautiful in this Moment AND in BOOKS!

"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

Would you like to host your own book drive?

"Until I feared I would lose it, I never loved to read. One does not love breathing." ~ Harper Lee


  1. Hoping on the big BEAUTIFUL book drive. I even gave up some of my treat money to get a few books for the kids. I've been to St. Anne's and the kids (and dogs) I have met have just loved and loved on me. I even help them read books and they read to me. Thank you SB for your giving heart. Four paws up to you.

  2. We are sending mom to get some books for these children!
