I’m calling upon my writing friends, followers, and anyone else who would like to participate to help me.
I work with lower income and special students who want to expand their knowledge through a college education, but they are struggling with reading and/or mathematical concepts.
I would like to start a book drive. This way these students can improve their reading scores through practicing what we all love to do----read. As we know, the more you read, then the better you get. Plus, I hope to ignite in them a passion for exploring other worlds and other people through the written word.
I am asking for you to help me by donating books for this cause. Any MG or YA books would be greatly appreciated.
New or used--doesn’t matter. Fiction or non-fiction—doesn’t matter. The only thing I would like to do is keep the reading lvl at MG and YA.
What I plan to do when I get with these students is let them choose a book for them to keep. A lot of these students don’t read—at least by choice—and I’m hoping to expose them to great novels.
If you would like to help, please leave a comment, message me on twitter or leave me a message on facebook. Also, if you could plz retweet this or like on facebook with a link to spread the word would be appreciated.
Thanks so much.
A side note...I'll be hosting my first 250 word contest next week. The judge--Alyson Peterson. Prizes---yep, I'll have some. Start date--March 7th. End date--March 17.
