Please take three minutes to learn about the LSSI Storybook Project by watching the video below. This effort, as simple and profound as a bedtime story, connects incarcerated parents with their children.
Have some fun this Mother’s Day weekend, and make a real difference. You can
- Donate to the Storybook Project in honor of the person who read you bedtime stories or the little one who shares a favorite book with you. I gave $10.29, the purchase price of one of my favorite children’s books, I Love You Through and Through. A $5.12 gift (Mother’s Day is May 12) could contribute to the cost of shipping a book and recording to a child.
- Send one or more new children’s books to Gail Beard, Storybook Project director. Find the guidelines below the video. Even if it has been years since you’ve last read a children’s book–enjoy sometime in a bookstore and pick up a classic or a new favorite.
- Invite others to do the same.
God bless us, everyone! Sue
