Every now and then, I’m blessed to find a way for Freely Educate to give back. Today, we all have the opportunity to give away 2,500 books to children who may not otherwise own a book at all. I’m going to need your help for this one! It’s easy, easy for you to help…
All you’ll have to do is come to a chat I’m hosting tonight at 8pm EST with Random House Children’s Books. If you can’t come then, you’ll still be able to help! For each reply in the chat discussion, Random House will donate one children’s book to First Book, a non-profit organization that gives books away to children. Our goal is to give away 2,500 books. With your help, we can do it!
Here’s more about how you can participate:
- At 8pm EST on August 18th come to our discussion in the Read & Play Summer Fun Community to participate in the live chat.
- During the chat, join in the conversation we will be having around the question “If you could spend a summer day living inside a children’s book or novel what would it be?”
- If you can’t make the live chat, then you can come back to the discussion anytime until August 26th with a pledge of how many hours per week you’ll commit to reading to your children.
- Tell you friends and spread the word! Send them to our First Book Chat Discussion. Random House will give away one book per reply.
While you’re there in the Read & Play Summer Fun Community, remember to enter to win an iPad2. All you have to do is let us know your favorite children’s book.
