I donated a few copies of BETWEEN SAFE AND REAL to the Kids Need to Read charity. Their mission is to donate hundreds of new books to six libraries in high-poverty areas around the nation. It felt like kismet that their headquarters is only about half an hour from my house, so while I was there I decided to spend a couple of hours getting dusty and helping with inventory.
On top of getting new books into underfunded libraries, they also send donated books to underfunded schools, foster care homes and facilities, and Little Free Libraries.
It's important work that they're doing and I'm honored to be even a small part of the program.
