Spirit of Giving~ Jackee Alston's Book and School Supply Giveaway

Project Give a Book, Give the World is blogger Jackee Alston's answer to how to give back this holiday season. In honor of her 200th post, she is proposing something simple and generous:

Give a book to someone, anyone (and this includes your own children!), and she'll send a Humanitarian School Kit to a child in need. The kits will look like the above photo.

If you have a spare moment, please take a look at this post on her lovely blog, Winded Words. With each donation of a book, you'll also accumulate points and be entered for a giveway that includes FARM GIRL (by the awesome Karen Jones Gowen, otherwise known as Karen G) and NIGHTSHADE CITY (by the super cool Hilary Wagner).

Again, please head over there and take a tissue~ the powerful story of what motivated Jackee to do this is a tearjerker.


  1. Thank you so much for the shout-out, Jess! I'm blushing crazy for your kind comments, though. :o) You have made my day--knowing that others want to get involved too is incredible. I can't thank you enough.

    Have a lovely day!!!!

  2. My goodness, this is extraordinary--thank you so much for sharing. The story brought a tear to my eye. I'll do my part to share it as well.

  3. Thank you so much for sharing this. What a wonderful idea, and I'm so happy to participate.
