Lend A Helping Hand ....

All right, my dear running friends... 

You have a few kids books laying around your house that your kids have obviously outgrown?  Why not do some good with them?  

The Pink Girl over in Texas is working on a book drive.
"I'm collecting books for the USO project, United Through Reading.  As service men and women sit at the international terminal, waiting for the flight that will carry them into danger and away from their families, they can select a children's book.  UTR will film them reading the book then send the book and the recording the the child.  Before I run the Marine Corps Marathon on October 30th, I'm hoping to collect 262 books (one for each mile and also the nubbin!)  to donate to this fantastic program.  Will you help me reach my goal?

E-mail me for deets.  thatpinkgirl AT gmail DOT com. 
Hoping to have the 262 by Oct 15th so we can deliver before I leave for D.C.!"

Isn't this a wonderful project? 
So, help a fellow runner out ....
Send some love. Send some books.


  1. What a great project! Sorry no kids books, unless you want some books in German :)

  2. Bummer .... seeing as I am child free I have absolutely nothing. Oh heck, I hardly have any books at all. I'm a slacker like that.

  3. Thx for the shout out! So excited about this project - reading AND service men & women, such a great cause!


Thanks for reading! Do leave me a comment or two. They keep me motivated.
