I have recently been corresponding with a lady named Aimee who is organising a community book pledge for a very worthy cause. After making my own donation, I invited Amie over here to Crafting a Daydream to tell us all about this fantastic pledge in the hope that my lovely readers will read, share and perhaps donate!
Here's Amie to to tell us all about it.
Hi Crafty B's!
As someone who is passionate about getting books into the hands of children, I have been in my element organising a Community Book Pledge for Dreamdrops Children's Charity.
The idea is simple, local businesses and individuals are kindly funding a brand new Usborne book (or three!) for me to order and present to Dreamdrops (charity number 1108920). They will then be made available to the patients and siblings on Holly Ward at Hinchingbrooke hospital, where they are unable to accept used books.
As a token of thanks, a bookplate will be inserted into the cover of each book stating who donated it and progress will be reported on my Facebook page. The response to date has been great, and the box is filling with activity books, story books, baby books and very apt titles such as Questions and Answers About Your Body flap book and Going to the hospital.
Thank-you so far to Hidden Gem Cupcakes, Maidin Cambourne, Argently Yours, Taylor Wimpey East Anglia, Cambridge Wills & Legal services, Rural Flying Corps, Janette Photography, White Rose Ceremonies, Elms Cambridgeshire and of course Mrs Crafty B for her donation and sharing this blog post.
If you would like to get involved and fund a book, please get in touch via my Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/thecambournestorycorner.
