Books for Christopher!


A struggling mother reached out to us via I Love Books; this was what she wrote.


I have a 12 year old son that has a disability that loves to read and lost almost all of his books due to hurricane Irene. I have tried everywhere to get him some more, done dumpster driving, recycling but due to my cancer and recent surgery I am not able to do this for him now. Any resources would be great. I have signes up for every possible help and hove gotten none as of yet.  ~ Nora

16 great books to help Christopher rebuild his library!
Thanks to all who helped out!
If anyone would like to send a book donation to Christopher, please contact us via email: haightjess@gmail.com


Some of the books that he loves: 
Diary of a Wimpy Kid by Jeff Kinney
Goosebumps by R.L. Stine
Middle Grade/ Science Fiction
If you would like to help, please contact us via email haightjess@gmail.com and we will fill you in on the details.


So many people were hit hard by Hurricane Irene, and it's sad to hear that a boy who loves to read has lost all his books. Thanks to all who have lent a helping hand.

  2. Hello Jess & Stephanie, sorry to hear about Chris's predicament. I'll help spread the word and see any of my friends in the States can do anything about this. I'll direct them to this page.
