National Reading Month Ideas - Milk + Bookies

You never know where inspiration is going to come from - and this post is no exception as it came from, of all places, a celebrity mom blog! Seems that many of the cool Hollywood mom's (including my personal fav Jennifer Garner) are supporting an organization called Milk + Bookies. According to their website:

"Milk + Bookies is a non-profit organization that teaches young children how great it feels to give back while celebrating the love of a good book"

I can't think of a mission statement that touches my 'little heart' more - as in addition to identifying with the service portion, I am an avid reader and lover of books. So in honor of National Reading Month, I wanted to highlight the work of this organization.

If you and your little one decide to support Milk + Bookies, please let us know. We'd love to hear how it went. As always, we love your ideas, comments and feedback!

hi there! thank you so much for highlighting Milk + Bookies. i founded it 6 years ago and we are having a very exciting month with our national launch right now. we have begun the "M+B Class Project" for high school students to be role models in philanthropy to younger kids.

clearly great minds think alike, as your wonderful blog here is very similar to The Acme Sharing Company,, which i started 2 years ago. both of my projects are in keeping with your mission: to help give little ones an experience where they can give back.

keep up your wonderful work! and all the best to you.

sincerely, meredith
