Book-Raiser Spotlight: Juliana’s 3rd Birthday!

This week’s Book-Raiser Spotlight goes to
Juliana!

For her 3rd birthday, Juliana’s mom, Sandra, knew that she wanted to teach her daughter to appreciate her birthday, not by receiving, but by giving.

After discussing that not all children have books of their own, Juliana decided to host her own Milk + Bookies book-raiser so that she could collect and donate books to children in her local community that didn’t have access to quality reading material. When they went to drop the books off, Juliana really began to understand the true meaning of giving back to others!

Juliana ended up raising 100 books for the Boys & Girls Club of Conejo!

CHILDREN WHO PARTICIPATED: 25

TOTAL BOOKS RAISED: 100

DONATED TO: Boys & Girls Club of Conejo

“What I learned as a parent, is that it’s never too early to start planting the seed of learning how to give.”

– Sandra, Juliana’s mom

Great work Sandra and Juliana! This family truly teaches us that it’s never too early to learn the joys of giving. We love hearing about the success of #FUTUREPHILANTHROPISTS like Juliana and can’t wait to see where their love of reading and giving takes them!

Milk + Bookies & GiveBackLA

About a month ago, we had a very special visit to our office by the GiveBackLA team! We had such an amazing time shooting our video as a part of their “2 Minutes Can Change Everything” campaign. Our office was even temporarily transformed into a magic making studio!

At GiveBackLA (GBLA), they believe that giving back is the new definition of success. GiveBackLA aims to introduce you to impactful & relevant Los Angeles area non-profit organizations, in a whole new way, providing a unique opportunity to get more involved in local causes that speak directly to you.

“Whether it is literacy, homelessness, violence prevention, the environment, GiveBackLA has handpicked a portfolio of local charities that have infrastructures in place that streamline the process for volunteers and financial donors to get involved at a level that is ideal for them. Whether it’s rallying co-workers at a small or large company to raise funds or creating a day of volunteering for the family, get involved and start giving back today!”

Because it’s easier than you think to make a difference. ™

We want to thank the GBLA team for all of their hard work making our amazing video and for sharing our mission!
