Jewish Women International’s National Library Initiative transforms rooms in domestic violence shelters into children’s libraries – creating both brand-new educational resources and safe havens for kids escaping violent homes.
Lisa Eisen, National Director of the Schusterman Family Foundation and 2013 JWI Woman to Watch, tells us the book she loves most and would like to see donated:
“My favorite children’s book is Harold and the Purple Crayon by Crockett Johnson, because it is about discovery and imagination. The story speaks to the possibility of creating a world of your own and fulfilling your own vision. I love the simplicity and the power of the way this message is delivered by Harold and his crayon.”
All it takes is a $7 donation to bring joy to a child in need through the gift of books. Show some love and donate to JWI’s National Library Initiative February Book Drive.
