Pediatric Cancer Awareness Month

Did you know that September is Pediatric Cancer Awareness month!? Every September I do a Cuddle Bear BOOK DRIVE, and it's time to kick off this year's! Usborne Books & More donates 5% of every Cuddle Bear book and plush to the Scott Carter Foundation for pediatric cancer research. This year, I'm donating books to the children being treated at Norton Children's Hospital in Louisville, KY. At this time they cannot accept the plushes (germs!), but will happily take the books and have also requested sticker books. Their kiddos LOVE them!


During book drives, typically I am raising cash donations to send them books, but you can also help by placing a book order for your own home! Here's how each option works:

  1. Donating cash: 100% of your cash donation will be used to purchase Cuddle Bear books and sticker books for the children at the hospital. Usborne Books & More also matches your donation 50% to provide even more books! So when you donate $25, I get to send $37.50 in books. If you donate $50, I get to send $75 worth! $100 cash donation turns into $150 in books!! And so on! You can request an invoice to donate or send Paypal directly to me at paypal.me/kristinhankins1

  2. Ordering books: When you order books for your home library (or gifts you need!), Usborne Books & More is going to match your purchase with 50% in free books for the children's hospital. If you place a $50 order, I get to send $25 worth of books to the kiddos there! If you place an $80 order, I get to send $40 in books. You get the idea! Ordering books you need is an excellent way to help raise books for the children at Norton's. Use this link to place your own book order: https://z3567.myubam.com/1800581


My goal is to send enough book sets to bless 180 kiddos! That's $1500 worth of books for them. The book drive ends Sunday at 9pm ET, so all donations or book orders must be in by that time to receive the 50% match on them. Thank you in advance for your support!
