Looking for a fresh(er) way to look at and celebrate February 14? Try celebrating it with the thousand book fairies.
Be part of the International Book Giving Day.
According to its website, IBGD is a day dedicated to getting new, used and borrowed books in the hands of as many children as possible. It is a grass root initiative of people who seek to increase children’s access and enthusiasm for books.
You can participate in this activity by doing any of the following:
1. Give a Book to a Friend or Relative.
It doesn’t matter whether the it’s a new or a pre-loved one.
2. Leave a Book in a Waiting Room or Lobby.
Just make sure that you’ve labeled the book FREE. Add also snippets about the celebration.
3. Donate a Book.
It could be to a public school library or to any organization that promotes the love of reading among children.
Spread the news. Give books. Give love.
