Here's something neat I just discovered about a week ago, and decided to get involved with:
From September 11th to October 1st, Chapters Indigo has partnered with schools ALL OVER CANADA who are in need of books in their libraries and classrooms.
There are underfunded schools in just about every community, and one where I'm from so I decided to participate buy buying some books for these schools (well, some of those books were for a school up North, but that was because it was the only school from one of the Territories represented).
It's super easy to do- you can either donate money ($12 = 1 book!) directly to the fund, OR purchase a $25 e-gift card through the site which also = 1 book!
Please, please consider donating if you love books as much as I do and you can spare as little as $12 to do so. And even if you can't, please help spread the word! The adopt a school program runs until October 1, 2011 but the Love of Reading program will still be running in its own way.
You can head on over to the website to see what it's all about and make the donation directly, if you're interested.
Thank you so much for taking the time to read this! <3
