This week officially kicks off Holiday shopping and a Reading With Kimberly Book Drive. With Black Friday specials, Small Business Saturday, Cyber Monday, and countless other sales and days to shop, there is definitely not a shortage of options.
Looking down your shopping list, there is likely to be a child or two on there. Maybe your own children, nieces, nephews, grandkids, the neighbor kids… the holidays bring out the best in kids and families. While toys, clothes, and a lump of coal might already be on the list, consider adding a book or two. Usborne and Kane Miller books is sure to engage even the most reluctant reader in learning, exploring, and creating. Books make terrific stand alone gifts, stocking stuffers, classroom gifts, and more!
This holiday shopping season, I’m kicking it off big time with three special shopping days, PLUS a bonus Book Drive for a local non-profit. All purchases from the book drive will directly benefit Dakota Woodlands in Eagan, MN. Dakota Woodlands provides shelter and support services to homesless women and families.
For every $50 spent, I will donate $25 in new Usborne Books to Dakota Woodlands. The books will be split between the center library for residents, and holiday gifts for the resident children to keep. You can purchase books for your own family (i.e.: you buy $50 in books for your family, and I’ll send Dakota Woodlands $25 in free books!), or if you prefer you can purchase directly from their wishlist – sending books right to Dakota Woodlands — which still provides the 50% match (i.e.: you send them $50 in books, and I’ll send them $25 in books!)!
