Cuddle Bear Book Drive for Kids at C.S. Mott Children's Hospital


Event Date: 
Saturday, September 30, 2017 - 11:45pm

As an independent consultant with Usborne Books & More, I am happy to announce I am holding a Cuddle Bear book drive for the kids at the University of Michigan C.S. Mott Children's Hospital. In addition to the Cuddle Bears, I will be donating a portion of my commission to Mott.

The dirve lasts now through September 30.

My goal is to raise $1,000 for this book drive, which with Usborne Books & More's Literacy for a Lifetime 50% matching grant would provide $1,500 to put smiles on the faces of children facing pediatric cancer.
