Our GiveABook Bookdrive
From November 21st to December 31st we collected new and gently used children's and teen's books to be donated to UNM Carrie Tingley Hospital, Joy Junction, and S.A.F.E. House.
GiveaBook is an online campaign to promote books as gifts and to give back to children in need. For every use of the hashtag #GiveaBook on Facebook and Twitter between November 16th and December 24th, Penguin Random House will donate a book to First Book to promote literacy, up to 35,000 books. UPDATE: Because of the success of the campaign, Penguin Random House donated 50,000 books to First Book!
The hashtag #giveabook applies to any type of book giving, whether as a gift to friend or family member or a donation to a charity book drive such as Angel Trees, library donation boxes and individual bookstore collection drives.
Support literacy and show your love of books this holiday season and share the tag #giveabook! Have questions? Email firstname.lastname@example.org.
