According to the National Center on Family Homelessness, there are an estimated 2.5 million children who are now homeless. That is every 1 in 30 children.
I don't have a home for each of these children but, I wish I did. What I do have is a book. Children who can read, learn more and go further.
My mission is simple - bring a little joy to kids currently in homeless shelters and transitional homes. I'm going to them. I'm conducting story time and giving out free books.
With the Donate-a-Book program donors are asked to fund the cost of one or more books at $9.95. It's that simple.

The Pajama Program is a national 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that provides new pajamas and new storybooks. Snuggling up in cozy, new pajamas with their very own new book, these children are given a secure and nurturing “good night” at bedtime.

through our website or on Facebook.

Alpha Pregnancy Center, Baltimore MD
The 2018 and 2019 donation of kids pajamas helped so many grateful parents and children. Each year, I utilized and reached out to my Facebook network and was able to raise enough funds to purchase 59 pairs of children's pajamas. I matched the purchase with 50 free copies of both of my children's books; "Do Bears Eat Pancakes?" and 'Miranda and the Lost Shoe." I can't say thank you enough for those whom donated.
