I’m really looking forward to this Saturday, when I’ll be part of an awareness and fundraising event kicking off the Month of Kindness in Massachusetts.
From 12-2 PM at the Burlington, MA Barnes and Noble, I will read my picture book WHAT’S UP WITH THIS CHICKEN? and run interactive games and crafts. Fellow author Linda DeFruscio-Robinson will share her book, GINGER AND MOE AND THE INCREDIBLE COINCIDENCE, and related art activities.
A portion of sales proceeds will go to the organization that inspired the Month of Kindness. It’s called HELPIS, or HelpMeHelpSomeone, Inc., whose mission is “to encourage and promote good and charitable deeds by groups and individuals for the purpose of helping someone needing help.” Thanks to them, the month of May each year celebrates “…a spirit of sharing…giving help and saluting those who promote generosity and kindness.”
Saturday’s event at the Burlington store will feature speakers and lots of fun activities for kids from 12-4 PM. Come by and have fun, and help kick off the Official Month of Kindness!
