Dear FB Friends, I have been given an incredible opportunity in 2013. I joined Team Bernie and the 50-for-50 in 2013. Team Bernie will raise money for Bernie's Book Bank, which is an amazing organization that distributes books to at risk kids. $1.00 provides 4 books to a welcoming child. Imagine what $50,000 would do....over 200,000 books will be given out. Please join me and the other Team Bernie members by donating what you can to the link below. Lets make 2013 an awesome year!!!!!!!!

Bernie's Book Bank Connects Children Needing Books With Books Needing Children!
Reading is the single most important skill a child needs to learn. Yet studies show that 61% of low-income families don’t have any books at all in their homes for their children.* Bernie’s Book Bank aims to change that statistic by pouring quality children’s books into “at-risk” homes, ensuring that children have access to books from birth, and arrive to school “reading ready.”
With a sense of urgency and professionalism, we’ve taken the guesswork out of what to do with outgrown children’s books.
Team Bernie is a community of people driven to help Bernie's Book Bank. We've set a goal of collectively logging 50,000 miles, in whatever way we choose to move, and to raise $50,000 while we do it.
Thank you for helping us reach our goals, and thank you for helping us Connect Children Needing Books with Books Needing Children!
