book drive update

With just 61 donations, we’ve already raised $2831. In one day. I think we just might hit that $3500 goal.

That’s 614 kids going back to school with books, notebooks, pencils, a uniform and a backpack. Thank you so much!

pamie.com’s Annual Book Drive

It’s Back.

Please help again this year. And if you’ve never helped before, now’s a great time to start.

I am passionate about every book drive we’ve done, and this one is no exception. Once again you’ll be helping children, families, communities and education systems deliver information, entertainment, knowledge and hope.

This year’s area in crisis is Kancheepuram, Tamil Nadu, India.

Tsunami Relief

A donation to the Tsunami Relief efforts in January 2005 can still be claimed on your 2004 tax return. Just in case you need another reason to give.
