If you are looking for a place to donate money for the end-of-the-year tax deductions, and/or because you care, Jon Carroll, today, writes of the Children's Book Project. They distribute books to children in the bay area.
Jon Carroll says:
"All kinds of books are needed. Some kids will read about dinosaurs; others will read insect tales, or stories about bullies, or lavishly illustrated fantasy adventures. Content is important, but process is even more important. If they can read, they will find what they're looking for. That's the point of the Children's Book Project.
So the question you are asking right now is: What can I, as an average citizen, do to help this amazing organization? First, you can give them money. I think you'll find that's pretty much always an answer to that question. Write a check for any amount and send it to the Children's Book Project, 45 Holly Park Circle, San Francisco CA 94110. Your money will help provide children with books. Your money will help civilization advance and stave off the forces of chaos. Is your money doing that now?"
It is a good question. If you have a little money waiting for a home, or some books for children, you are not reading, here's the place to go.
The Children's Book Project, HO!!! Tis the season!!
