Hi CJ,
Went to your website, what a great, easy to use website. I signed up for a donation for your charity. I am more than happy to get kids reading. I have donated more than 600 books to schools and libraries in Orange County, CA. I'll be forwarding a book. Thanks so much for this opportunity.
All the best.
Thora
