THANK YOU again to everyone who supported my most recent round of fundraising campaigns by purchasing or sharing about my Ask Me What I’m Reading T-shirts and masks. I am STILL blown away by the success of the campaigns, which altogether raised nearly $17,000! Some of that money was donated to various organizations that work to improve kids’ book access in the United States and around the world, and some was used to purchase and send books directly to teachers and librarians whose budgets, this year, are in worse shape than ever. The latter work was done with the aid of the Clear the List project/hashtag, as well as my own efforts to support teachers’ and librarians’ local independent bookstores.
Shortly after the T-shirts and masks started shipping, I received a number of requests about putting the Ask Me What I’m Reading design on some cold-weather gear. So I once again worked with Custom Ink to put together a long-sleeve T-shirt and sweatshirt campaign. The campaign went live last week, and will be up for another week or so.
Please note that the crewneck sweatshirts come in youth sizes! And THANK YOU again to everyone who has shared and/or supported these efforts of mine. Together, we’ve been able to put a lot of books in a lot of kids’ hands!
