A Chance to Do Something Good For the Holidays!

Hi guys! This time of year is hard for those who have little. It is also the time of year many of our hearts are opened to those in need. Here is a chance for you to do so!

The Story Siren posted THIS post on Monday. A story that is all too common that we may not even be aware of. A 200 home complex with many children has no local library for children to use, and many children in this area do not even have one book in their homes.

Well some really wonderful people decided to change that and began to fund a small library for the homes at an on site location with their own money.

Today, The Story Siren posted a wonderful contest! Not only does it allow you to do something good this holiday season, if that isn't incentive enough there are some really awesome prizes. You can read about that HERE.

Let's open our hearts this holiday season, whether it's for these children that need help, or something else more local that we know about.

And while we're on the subject PLEASE BUY BOOKS this holiday season! A slowed economy is hitting all of our author friends hard, and in turn the entire industry is hurting, making it harder to get good books published! I know books are my favorite gift to give and receive, you can help too!
