Making Santa's 'Good' list: rgz and First Book partner up to give books to low income teens
The only thing better than seeing teens picking up books is seeing people rally together to get books to low income teens.
If you know any groups or organizations that could help put these books in the hands of teens, let them know! If you don't know any groups, then you can still help out by doing the following: (taken directly from rgz's website)
Post to Facebook and tweet your beak off about these books using the hashtag #novelgift.
Here’s a tinyurl link to their registration page: http://tinyurl.com/2a5mwpj.
Or you can link to this blog post: http://readergirlz.blogspot.com/2010/11/novel-gift-over-125000-free-books-to.html
Then, get in touch with every group you can think of that works with young adults–schools, after-school programs, church youth groups, community centers, etc.—and let them know that these books are available now.
The five-minute online registration these groups can use is here:
First Book is also eager to answer questions, either by email to firstname.lastname@example.org, or by phone at 866-READ-NOW or 866-732-3669.
If you participate, drop us a note at email@example.com to be included in our blog roll of thanks to run December 31.
