Whenever we buy books to give kids, we let Jackee know how many books we purchased and she'll match the donation number with humanitarian school kits for children who usually can't afford the luxury of a whole pencil. (My kids will not be receiving one of these kits, even though I swear there's a pencil-eating monster living in my junk drawer because I can never find one when I need it. The fact that I even have a junk drawer, however, disqualifies us from receiving humanitarian aid.)
Not only that, but Jackee is giving away books at the same time. Wonderful books! All in the spirit of the holidays.
So drop by her blog, buy lots of books for your kids (and all the neighbor kids and all the kids in your kids' classes and all the kids you see on the street), and make Jackee work really hard sending out those humanitarian school kits. (She wants to!) And who knows, you might win a really great book in the process.
'Tis the season to give because of what God gave to us.
Thanks Jackee for giving so much of yourself to make other people's lives better.
