Dear Fellow Readers,
Fallen Angel Reviews is coordinating an effort to collect books for children and adults, including coloring books and crayons, to be donated to the people displaced by Hurricane Katrina.
A few weeks ago, my family and I moved to Houston. As you know, many of the people displaced have been evacuated to Houston. Like so many others around the world, I want to do something, anything, to help. After talking to some friends and JoAnn, the co-owner of FAR, we wondered if donations of books and coloring books might be appreciated.
I’ve made several calls and each time my enquiry was greeted with enthusiasm, and I was given details about where to drop off the items. We will be sorting the books so that they are appropriate to the shelter they are being delivered to. Used books are acceptable, but coloring books should be in new or like-new condition.
We hope to be able to deliver at least the first books within a week, but we will gladly accept donations through September 30th.
If you would like to be involved and contribute either money or books, email me @ email@example.com or email JoAnn @ firstname.lastname@example.org.
