The Fort Bragg Fisher House Needs Help

Recently, the Fort Bragg Fisher House reached out to the community stating that there were needs.  The Fisher House at Fort Bragg helps over 100 famlies each year.  But their bookcases are looking worn, and could look better and be equipped better to help those families.

I saw this list of needs, and because last year our fundraiser and book raiser for them was so successful, I asked if I could provide that help again.  Technically they are not allowed to say yes or no – so I thought, I will work toward this goal because I know my network is AMAZING; indeed, last year, we raised $300 in NEW books for those kids!  Want to try to bless them that way again?

The Fisher House provides help to over 100 families yearly, as they wait for their soldiers to heal at the nearby Womack Army Hospital.  Their facility is incredible.  Handicap accessible, kitchen ready for many families, a beautiful setting and even an enclosed back yard full of toys for children.

 

However, as we well know, books that are read well need to be updated and replaced.  So, to provide help and stories to the families at the Ft Bragg Fisher House, I am launching our book drive.  It is easy and simple.  You can become involved by doing one of two things:

1) Go to https://tinyurl.com/FBfisherhouse and select one, two, or even 20 books from the list you’d like to donate.  Choose “SHIP WITH ORGANIZATION” at checkout and the books ship free!  I’ll send you a huge thank you, and if you are a business, I’ll give you a shout out on social media!

2) Copy and paste this message on your social media sites because EVERY BOOK HELPS:

The Ft Bragg Fisher House takes care of more than 100 soldiers’ families each year.  Now they’re asking for our help!  You can help by selecting any books from this list and having them sent to the Fisher House free of charge. Simply click here and select “SHIP WITH ORGANIZATION” for free shipping directly to the home! https://tinyurl.com/FBfisherhouse

I’d love to wrap this up for them by August 15.  Please please please help us get the word out.  These soldiers’ families deserve the very best.  It is my intention to give them the very best in children’s stories – books that last longer than most – and send them love in the quality of gifts they will receive.

Thank you for supporting our soldiers!

Happy Reading,
Wendy

Who Would YOU Be?

One of the most amazing things about being a reading advocate for busy families is the people I meet.  Their incredibly diverse goals inspire me!  I was also recently inspired at a conference this weekend with Brenda Ster and Melissa Fietsam… and by the book “Creating Magic” by Lee Cockerell.

People join our mission for so many different reasons.  And every single person’s goals matter.

I did my very best to put what I learned there into a graphic.  I’m curious!  Which would you be? Comment below!

If you have questions, hit the contact form here!  I’d love to chat about YOUR goals.  Our team members’ goals are so incredibly diverse – it’s a blessing! I even have training in place for each type of goal.

You will love equipping your family with the very best in children’s literature, as well as giving others that opportunity.


Sponsor Families with Injured Soldiers

Families who have a soldier in the hospital for long-term care often incur extra hardship on top of the stress of their recovery.  If they want to be near the soldier, they often have to pay extra for lodging beyond their normal living expenses.  That is often prohibitive. As a result, the Fisher House is near and dear to my heart.  It provides lodging and meals for families for as long as it takes.
Introducing the Ft Bragg/Fayetteville Fisher House Fundraiser.  Holy cow that’s a lot of F’s! But it’s going to be Fantastic.  We are going to bless the SOCKS off this organization that shows what hospitality is all about: giving without expectation of return.
Donors have the option of sponsoring the families with books and activities, or purchasing a card box to donate money.  Browse here for more details, or to donate directly while finding out more about fundraising, click here and scroll to the bottom.
Direct wishlist to purchase is located on my website here.  

Then select “ship with organization” so that books are shipped free of charge to the organization.
