Who Knew? Authors Can Help Kids Displaced by California Fires

Below you will find a plea by my blog guest, Cynthia Brian:

During the tragedies of 9//11, Hurricanes Katrina and Rita, Be the Star
You Are! charity volunteers mobilized to get resources to those in
needs. Now with the San Diego fire almost in control, Be the Star You
Are! wants to make sure that every child who was affected by the fire
gets a gift of a brand new book for the holiday. We have been collecting
cases of beautiful children's books to ship to San Diego and Southern
California. For a donation of $99 to Be the Star You Are!, we will ship
a case of brand new beautifully illustrated books valued at $550.00 or
more to the charity or group of the donor's choice. If you could pass
this information along to your database, friends, family, fans, etc.,
that would be awesome. We have great books for ages 3-18 and are
shipping now. The information is attached.

Also, if you know of any groups, shelters, schools, or other
organizations that may need books, please let me know as we have donors
who have not designated a particular group.

Be the Star You Are! is a 501 c3 dedicating to empowering women,
families, and youth through improved literacy and positive media. Every
contribution is tax deductible and our volunteers will send a tax
receipt as well as include a card from the donor with every case of books.


Here in N. California we had a 5.6 earthquake last night, and of course,
everyone prays that the "big one" is not soon. With fires, floods,
mudslides, tornadoes, hurricanes, sunamis, earthquakes, and terrorist
attacks, we become aware of the precious gift of life and the need to
share, care, and be fair.

Thanks in advance for helping us spread the word in any way possible.

Blessings and love,
Cynthia Brian
