Last year, we donated 100 books to the Phoenix Children’s Hospital to help ease children’s fears during their hospital stay. We would like to expand on that effort of giving, so I have created a program called BENTLEY GIVES BACK that gives books to children who have found themselves in unfortunate circumstances. Their families may be in financial stress, or they may be facing an illness that means a hospital visit or surgery.
BENTLEY GIVES BACK has teamed up with local non-profits to make sure that these children receive a gift of kindness during their trying times, and what could be better than a book featuring our always kind Bentley?
To participate, just purchase a book from my website (it can be any of my books as we have children of various ages) and use code GIVE.
Your book will be donated towards one of the causes below. If you would like to choose one cause in particular please indicate by dropping me a note using the comment icon in the lower right of the order page. I will still do a donation to either The Humane Society of Yuma, or the Western States Trail Museum if you select that donation tab, or, if no donation tab is selected $3 per book will be donated to the non-profits in the BENTLEY GIVES BACK program!
KINDNESS MAKES A DIFFERENCE DAY/ KIDS CUDDLEKIT CLOSET
Every year Yuma elementary schools refer the 300 children they feel are most in need of a gift of kindness. The children attend an event in December and are given their very own ‘cuddle kit’ filled with clothing, shoes, a fleece blanket and other donated goodies. This year we would like to add a book to the kit, and we need your help.
YUMA PEDIATRIC UNIT
Kids Cuddle kits are also given to every child entering the pediatric unit to make their hospital stay just a little bit less scary.
The AdvoKATE Foundation was created to honor the legacy of Kate Campa by raising awareness and funds for research to fight childhood cancer. Kate’s wonderful mother, Lili, is putting together Kate’s Kits for pediatric oncology patients from Yuma who are being treated out of town because Yuma has no pediatric oncology unit. We would love to include a book in these kits also.
