Today, with a happy heart, I’m sending out a big Valentine’s Day hug to the dozens and dozens and dozens of authors, editors, publishers and literacy supporters who made the second-annual Holiday Book Drive for Chicago kids possible.
You guys! Friends of #HolidayBookDriveChi donated more than 450 books for the Bronzeville-based non-profit Leading with Literacy. From the bottom of my humbled heart, THANK YOU for contributing to this effort. Pastor Michael Neal of Leading with Literacy shares me in expressing his deepest gratitude for your generosity again this year.
And so, here’s a very special valentine for everyone who played a role in the 2018 #HolidayBookDriveChi event. Your hearts are absolutely enormous, and the joy you shared can be seen in the faces of every child in this video…
Happy Valentine’s Day to each of you! I hope you’ll join hearts with us again in Holiday 2019, as we continue working to put new books in the hands of kids!
