We are SUPER excited to be having a family fun day at the little marc jacobs store in NYC on December 2. We hope you can join us – it is going to be fabulous with cookies and crafts and shopping and fun!!!
We love the piece of our program that asks kids to inscribe a book plate. This is such a beautiful way for them to feel responsible for the act of giving. It leaves their “fingerprint” on the donation and we always love to see what the kids write. This is a sweet one we wanted to share.
We love blogunteer.com. The Blogunteer is dedicated to inspiring volunteerism, giving and kindness by highlighting the many organizations already out there making a difference and individuals who give their time.
Thanks to Blogunteer for sharing our program with their readers:

We love this photo of these students at a German immersion school in California. They had a Milk + Bookies event for themselves and created an entire collection of German picture books. They now have a library for the entire community!
Celebrate your freedom to read this week during Banned Books Week September 30 – October 6th.
Luckily we will never know what it feels like to NOT be able to crack open the spine of any interesting looking book and dive right in. Thanks to the ALA (American Library Association), we can enjoy this annual celebration and open the conversation about censorship.

We love to see kids smiling after a big day of giving, and we couldn’t help but share this awesome photo of Milk + Bookies superstars Serrae and Jaena.
To celebrate their ninth birthdays, Serrae and Jaena recently hosted their own M+B party and raised over 200 books for the families and patients at the Children’s Cancer Center at Long Beach Memorial Hospital!
Way to go girls!
For over 100 years, The Girl Scouts of America’s mission has been to shape girls of “courage, confidence, and character who make the world a better place.” In honor of such a fantastic organization, Milk + Bookies has launched our very own merit badge campaign!
Help decide which of these 4 magnificent designs seen above should be the official badge given to troop participants who host a Milk + Bookies event!
