We’re excited to have mailed out our first donations, thanks to our Book Bears subscribers! As you know, for each new subscriber that Book Bears receives, we donate a picture book to benefit a child in need. This is all to feed our mission of getting little bears everywhere to fall in love with books!
We’ve chosen to donate our first set of books to The Lisa Libraries. We chose this charity because it focuses solely on kids’ books, just like Book Bears. The charity was started by author Ann M. Martin (of The Babysitter Club fame) and friends to honor and memorialize children’s book editor Lisa Novak. The charity provides books to organizations that work with kids in poor and under-served areas. According to the charity’s website, since its founding in 1990, the Lisa Libraries has contributed over 375,000 books to nonprofit organizations across the country. We’re proud to be contributing our own small part.
