Every year the Pawling Resource Center gives gift packages to families in need in the community.
The church I pastor in Pawling decided to participate by donating 24 grocery gift cards to be given to these families.
I decided to run a funding campaign in order to provide Daniel Dreamgazer books with these gift cards.
So I sent a message to my email list and put posts on facebook.
People responded and we were able to raise more than enough books.
In each book I placed a personalized message that the backers choose to say along with their name (for those who chose for it to be mentioned). This provided a nice personal touch.
Then I packed the Daniel Dreamgazer book and the gift cards in a nice slip case.
The campaign was a success. We shot passed the 24 books goal. We actually reached 41 books! Praise God.
So I was able to have 24 books packed with gift cards, and I was able to pack 17 other books to bless some extra families.
When I delivered these books to the Pawling Resource Center last week, the director's face beamed. She was so impressed with what the church and what the backers had done. Terry, the director gives her thanks to all who made this possible.
For those who may have missed this opportunity, the next place where I want to donate books is the Children's Village. Visit our Sponsor Youth page in order to donate a book to a young person.
