Thank God For Everything!
Giveaway Over Congratulations to 1StopMom.
One of the most rewarding aspects of being an active participant in the social media space is having the ability to make a positive impact on the lives of others. People use social media for many things but I think using it to power good works is one of the best ways to utilize social media. That is why when I was contacted by Hallmark to participate in the Ambassador program I signed up immediately because I appreciated the charity aspect of the campaign combined with the support of early childhood literacy.
In my first giveaway charities for book donations were chosen by the winners and this time I get to chose my local charity to donate books to - the Atlanta Children’s Shelter.
When we think of the homeless the image of adults frequently comes to mind
but many of these adults are women - with children. The Atlanta Children’s Shelter provides childcare services for homeless children. Their parents receive guidance on job hunting, skills building, etc to help them on the road to having a stable place to call home. The Shelter serves 40 children and I have to tell you I am so impressed by this National Association for the Education of Young Children certified center that donating the books to them was a total pleasure!
With the Hallmark recordable books the children will be able to hear the sound of their parent or caregivers voice and be able to take this source of comfort with them wherever their travels take them. The last book that I received to review is titled “Thank You God for Everything!” I can’t think of a more appropriate book for my son and for the Atlanta Children’s Shelter which is housed in a church. I am thankful everyday for the blessings that God has bestowed upon me, my family and friends and am so very thankful that The Atlanta Children’s Shelter exists to help support these families that are in need.
If you would like to win a copy of Thank You God For Everything simply leave a comment telling me what you are thankful for. If you’d like extra entries you can tweet about this contest.
I’m thankful that God gave me the opportunity to participate in this campaign and share the joy of reading with children.
Contest open until September 7th, 2010 11:59 pm EST.
Disclosure: As a Hallmark ambassador I received compensation for my time and a review copy of the book.
