The Princess and The Book

We are often overwhelmed by the generosity of our supporters who go above and beyond to promote our cause.

This was definitely the case when Brazilian-born animator and illustrator, Ariel Costa, came to us with the idea of designing a fairytale for us….needless to say, we were a *bit* blown away by this offer and the results of his efforts definitely did not disappoint!

We hope you enjoyed the tale of The Princess and The Book!

To check out more of Ariel’s work (or to just learn more about his insane skills), check out his website here OR follow him on Facebook, Instagram, and Vimeo.

This week’s featured book-raiser is a very special one! We were thrilled to partner with the Jewish Learning Center of the SIJCC and the Islamic Center of Southern California for their Muslim-Jewish Partnership for Change Event!

In addition to the days activities, they also hosted a Milk + Bookies Book-Raiser!
