Raising Spirits with Reading

Hello everyone, I hope all is well with you! I’m back today sharing with you a program that I’m involved with. It’s called “Raising Spirits with Reading” and it’s a Fundraising Campaign for the Children at DeVos Children’s Hospital. Below is a letter that explains everything.

Raising Spirits with Reading Fundraising Campaign


October 1o, 2013

Dear Fellow Community Member-

There is no better way to brighten a child’s day than by engaging them in a book!  Help us bring smiles to their faces and take them on a magical adventure by donating to our cause!

The money raised will be used to purchase age appropriate books for every child at Helen Devos Children’s Hospital.  If we surpass our funding needs we will be purchasing additional books to donate to the children’s hospital for future patients.

Any amount donated is greatly appreciated!  T-shirts for all volunteers will be made and worn the day of the event.

  • Businesses that donate $250 or more will have their company name and logo put on the back of the event shirts.
  • Individuals that donate $75 or more will have their name put on the back of the event shirt.
  • All that donate will be thanked on Traveler’s Trunk Publishing’s website (www.travelerstrunkpublishing.com)

Please submit company logos and/or the name you would like placed on the T-shirt to the following:

All donations must be received no later than Saturday, October 19th to ensure books are received on time.  Donations of cash or check can be mailed to the address above.  Credit card donations and further information can be obtained on the following web page:


Thank you in advance for your support in helping to bring smiles and stories to hospitalized children!

There’s also a fund raising event on Wednesday October 16th at Buffalo Wild Wings located at 3050 Alpine Ave. in Walker, Mi. Please come down for a snack or dinner. 20% of the proceeds collected using a special voucher which you can get from me (I’ll e-mail it to you) will go to this cause.

Thanks so much for your consideration!
