Donate a box of books for children, and the postage will be free!
I don't post press releases or that sort of thing, but I received some news worth publicizing this morning from Mitchell Silverman, co-founder and CEO of The Giving Effect, a NYC startup that represents 1,300 charities nationwide. Operation Kid Equip (OKE) will host its first mail-in book drive for at-risk children in Detroit, in partnership with The Giving Effect. As unbelievable as it may sound, many of these children do not have a single book in their homes--and books in the home are integral to literacy and future success. So please, take a look in your overstuffed bookcases or elsewhere and see what you can contribute; you'll make a true difference in the life of a child. Between now and May 14, when you donate new or gently used children's books to OKE, the postage will be free. For complete details and to donate books, please visit The Giving Effect. Thank you!
