My Usborne Books & More team and I are working together to fundraise money to donate books to the Dayton Children's Hospital for Childhood Cancer Awareness month. "Children admitted to Dayton Children’s and their families receive the finest medical treatment, emotional support and loving care available anywhere. But children have other special needs. Your gift of...books...and activities help brighten a child’s stay at Dayton Children's. These gift items are used for birthday presents, end-of-treatment gifts and to stock [their] play and waiting areas." (Dayton Children's)
As an educator, I have always strived to make an impact on children. I am excited to be able to reach even more children in need through this book drive and to give back to our community.
Your donation will allow us to purchase a variety of books! A favorite for younger children, "Cuddle Bear", comes with a teddy bear plush and is about unconditional love and comfort. A portion of the proceeds from this book also benefit the Scott Carter Foundation to help eliminate pediatric cancer. UBAM was honored to present them with a donation of $35,000 this past year! What a difference we can make! Some great choices for older children are "No Worries!" and "Hello, Happy!" which are filled with age-appropriate activities that help the children to define and understand their feelings, and discover paths to happiness, peace and positivity. They also help children cope with anxiety and stress, assist in working out how and why they feel worried, encourage them to talk to others about their worries, and feel calmer.
No donation is too small. Partnering with Usborne Books & More, we are able to give BEYOND your donation, as they have a commitment to match ALL donations by 50%!! Let's come together and show these kiddos some extra special comfort and love.
