To help honor National Adoption Awareness Month, Scoochie & Skiddles has partnered with Hindi’s Libraries, a globally recognized literacy non-profit based out of NY, to conduct a month-long book drive. We are collecting books that feature stories about adoption, families, or that have inclusive and diverse themes. The books will then be donated to partner organizations that are committed to strengthening families and those touched by adoption.
You can help by making a new book purchase from our Amazon Charity Wishlist (the Amazon Wishlist will provide you the option to ship to Hindi’s Libraries). For every Scoochie & Skiddles book purchased through the Amazon Wishlist, I will match that donation with another book. That doubles the impact of your donation! Together, we hope to donate 1,000+ books.
If you’d like to help in other ways, we would benefit from you spreading the word about the campaign. Post information about our book drive on your social media accounts and use the hashtag #Authors4Adoption. You can get more information about the book drive, including our organizational beneficiaries, by visiting the Scoochie & Skiddles Authors4Adoption page (or by visiting https://tinyurl.com/adoptionmonth ).
One of the reasons I began writing was to bring greater representation of inclusive and diverse families, like mine, to children’s literature. I am so happy to be participating in this campaign that will also help to bring more diverse and inclusive family-themed books to children across the country. I thank you in advance for your support in this effort.
