56. Donate books
Completed January 2002
Squirrel and I ran a book drive to benefit Reading Is Fundamental (RIF). Oh, we put so much work into it. We made flyers. We put collection boxes at three different locations. We compiled a suggested shopping list of bestsellers, classics, and Newberry and Caldecot medal winners. In the end, we collected only a few books, but a lot of money, which we used to go out shopping for more. Then we got to deliver the books. We divided them between three different local programs and spent a morning driving to local schools to deliver the books.
The best part was the cute thank you cards the children sent us.
