Now for April, I'm excited to helping a local project that is near and dear to my heart, the Latimer Little Free Library. I am donating $0.50 for every comment made on my blog in April to help the CAL Kindergarten Class's Book Drive for the Latimer Little Free Library.
In 2014 I campaigned to the Latimer City Council to use an open lot in downtown to put up a Little Free Library. The Council unanimously voted to let me use the lot and I have been the steward of Little Free Library #11710 for close to four years now. Thanks to the Latimer City Council and several community members, books have been available to citizen of all ages 365 days a year. And now, thanks to my local school district's CAL Kindergarten Class, we'll be adding more books!
The CAL Kindergarten has been learning about taking action to help address local, regional and global problems in their Social Studies unit and as a class, they decided to do a Book Drive to get more books for the Latimer Little Free Library. I was touched to get contacted by their teacher, Mrs. Koenen, and to hear about their excitement for the campaign. The Kindergarten class made posters to spread awareness about their Book Drive, and they even made this commercial to share with the students at CAL Community School.
They are also planning on having a Lemonade Stand to raise money for the Latimer Little Free Library and after their campaign is over, they're going to help me give the Little Free Library a new coat of paint. The Kindergartners enthusiasm is contagious and I wanted to help them out, so I'm donating $0.50 for every comment made on my blog all month long towards their Book Drive!
What is your favorite book? Do you have a Little Free Library in your neighborhood? Remember to Comment for a Cause all month long to support the CAL Kindergartners taking action in their local community! I look forward to keeping you posted on their efforts!
