Books for a good cause!

Donation Contest

Give at-risk girls between the ages of 12-18 the chance to read some books! There truly is nothing better than giving a gift to those in need, and who better than those who will be affected in an amazing way with the books you no longer need or read!

At St. Anne's Institute, a residential and therapeutic facility for at-risk girls ages 12 to 18 from all over New York State, they have a limited library of books available to them. We all know the amazing effect books can have on us, and these girls need a positive thing in their lives.

If you have any middle grade, young adult, or other books that are in decent condition and are relevant to the readers(girls, ages 12-18), please donate them!

The library in St. Anne's that will be receiving these books won't be the only ones scoring big.

There will be mulitple prizes going into the prize pool and multiple winners will be drawn. For each book you donate, you will get one entry.

Here are some of the things you can win:

A $10 Barnes and Noble Gift Card
A $10 Borders Gift Card
A $10 Amazon E-gift Card

There will be prizes added soon, promise!! :)

I will have the books sent to me, and the books will be dropped off all at once. 

You will have two weeks to fill out this form(until June 27th), which simply asks your name, email(so I can give you my address), and the number of books you will be donating. After the form closes in two weeks, then you will have two weeks to send your books out. You can start sending them out as soon as you let me know all of the information, or you can wait until sometime later near the end, it doesn't matter as long as they are sent out by July 12th.

Once all of the books have been received, I will pick winners!

I hope to get some more prizes for you guys. If anyone wants to donate something to give away as a prize to the people donating books, please email me at

I hope to get a great turnout for this, and to have lots of books for these girls to read! If you could please spread the word in any way, it would be greatly appreciated!

A big thanks to author Eric Luper who brought this to my attention! To read more about his efforts, go here!

Thank you everyone!

This is awesome. I've been wanting to donate books for a long while, but the children hospitals around here (and in Toronto) won't accept anything that isn't brand new because of health reasons, which I totally understand though I'm disappointed. Now I finally can donate books, thanks to you!

I'm compiling a list now :D
