Margot Davidson of Hillside Education has organized a marvelous way to help a family in a tight spot. Her “Helping Those in Need” page contains a list of books and other materials donated by folks around the ‘net. All proceeds from the sale of these items will be given to a particular family in need.
I’ve donated a couple of hard-to-find Martha and Charlotte books. These are hardcovers, and are, of course, the original, unabridged editions. If buyers include inscription information with their orders (or just drop me a note after you’ve made your purchase at Margot’s site), I’ll be happy to write a personal message in the book before it ships. We’re pretty close to Christmas now and I can’t guarantee the books will arrive before December 24, but if someone orders right away I’ll do my best to get them in the mail within 24 hours.
UPDATE: Y’all are quick! My books have been sold, but there is a lot of good stuff at the site, so please do pop over and take a peek.
