During November-December 2011, a group of awesome book-loving, generous folks came together in the Light Up the Library Auction. Using the proceeds from the auction, thousands of books were shipped via container through the Books for Africa organization to Uganda. And one of the beneficiaries was a new library at Musana Children’s Home – a place that’s near and dear to my heart. See the amazing photos below.
Never, in my wildest dreams, did I imagine the effort of so many to create a space so rich and beautiful.
So to celebrate, I’m giving away a LIGHT UP THE NIGHT classroom pack. All you have to do is leave a comment (and maybe some way to reach you – like a camouflaged e-mail address) from now through April 30, 2013. Then on May 1st I’ll select one commenter (sorry, U.S. only – postage breaks me), via random drawing, to win:
- A copy of LIGHT UP THE NIGHT signed by the author and illustrator.
- A LIGHT UP THE NIGHT poster
- 30 LIGHT UP THE NIGHT activity sheets
- 30 LIGHT UP THE NIGHT coloring sheets
- 30 LIGHT UP THE NIGHT bookmarks
Then please check back on May 1st to find out if you’re the lucky winner!
