Help us help local teachers

We recently became aware of the budget cuts our local schools are undergoing. In an effort to help support our teachers we are offering Giving Tree "Book Scholarships" to local teachers this holiday season!

Our 5th Annual Giving Tree will raise money from our community and lovely readers to purchase classroom sets of books for our local teachers. By helping our teachers obtain the resources they need to teach (books!), we hope this will allow the children in our area to continue receiving the best education they can. We also hope this makes our teachers' jobs just a little bit easier - yay!

Want to donate? Visit the store (we're open daily!) or use the link on the right to make a donation online. 100% of every donation will go toward purchasing classroom sets of books to local teachers.
