One Cobble at a Time

Giving away books

Sandra Tayler's Journal

A cobble by itself is just a small stone, but when many of them lay together they create a path . My life is made up of many discrete parts. I have to find ways to fit them all into place so that I can continue to journey where I desire to go. This journal records some of the cobbles that create my path.

Hold Horses


Today I was filling orders from our store and I noticed that someone was having some of our books shipped directly to a Toys for Tots coordinator. I loved this thoughtful gesture so much that I threw some extra books into the box. Then I got thinking. This year has been lean for Toys for Tots and similar charitable organizations. So I've decided to do what I can to help them out. For every copy of Hold on to Your Horses that is purchase in our store and mailed directly to a charitable organization, I will add a second book at no cost. So if you buy three books and have them mailed to your local battered women's shelter, I will mail out 6 books.

The website for Toys for Tots lets you look up the addresses of local businesses which accept donations. I would love to see some books go to battered women's shelters. United Way offices are often collecting points for donations to women's shelters. Children's hospitals are another perfect fit for this offer. Books are ideal for helping a child who has to lay in a hospital bed. I will also be happy to consider other worthy charitable causes you think might be benefited by this offer.

Books are what I have to give, but please remember that these organizations benefit greatly from monetary donations made directly to them. They are also in constant need of staple supplies such as diapers. Check with your local United Way offices to see what is needed in your area.
  • Another great charity

    Every year I donate to the Child's Play charity. It has a direct impact on a ton of children's hospitals world-wide and is run by the guys from Penny Arcade. They raise amazing amounts of money and help so many children. Check them out at www.childsplaycharity.org .

    Thanks,

    Will that offer apply to orders made in person?
