After I saw the images of how devastated Hurricane Dorian left the Bahamas, I knew I wanted to do something to help. I came across the Brighter Bahamas Foundation in my searching and realized they were a good fit for both me and my fellow book lovers!
I am collecting books from September 22 – October 13th with the intent of getting the books to the shipper by the end of October.
If you have any questions, please contact me at [email protected]
Goal: 1,000 books!
Currently collected: 748
What to do next…
Any gently used children’s books are welcome. Age range from Board Books to YA. NO TEXTBOOKS please!
Once you have your books selected, download these bookmarks and stick one inside each book. If you’d like you can write a note of encouragement or share what state you live in.
If you don’t live in Central Florida, you can mail your books to the address below. Make sure you ship them MEDIA MAIL. Ship books by Oct 6, 2019 or they won’t make the shipment!
