Update on the Dear Wendy Book Drive

Screen Shot 2013-11-25 at 8.42.29 PM

In just over 48 hours, over 215 books have been purchased in the second annual Dear Wendy Holiday Book Drive! Two ALL THREE registries are 100% fulfilled (over 100%, actually) and when I told one teacher the news, she said: “I am honestly sitting here in my classroom in tears while my students are in music class. This is so awesome. I am more than thrilled. Thank you so much for helping me to give a gift of reading to my students, the joys of my life.”

Thank you to everyone who contributed! Now, every student will be guaranteed at least one book for Christmas, and all three classrooms will have a few extra books to update their lending libraries. Happy Holidays!

      Wow, that’s worth about 230 Chipotle burritos! Or 200 bottles of my favorite (not-so-expensive) wine! Or the ticket for my upcoming flight to Rio!

      Well done, well done.
