In December I was an instructors class in Atlanta and every year we are afforded an opportunity to donate to a cause. This year GREEA (Georgia Real Estate Educators Association) introduced us to a man name George Scott. George has been paying rent on space for storage, paying for shipping on his own to mail books donated and books he bought to soldiers overseas for years. He is asking for help and what a worthy cause. His Charity is called Books for Heroes. It doesn't appear on line donations are available. But mailing a check ensures that 100% of the money goes to shipping costs and helping someone. There is zero administration costs. George spends his own money doing this on top of donations for zero pay.
I guess I never really considered not having all the books I would want to read as close as my local library or book store. I have decided that beyond the financial donation I made last month I'd like to mail some books. I have some books I will be donating and mailing.
If you are in the Lake Sinclair area and would like to help you can stop by my office and drop off books you'd like to donate. You can also drop off baby wipes, disposable razors and gold bond powder and I'll pay to ship those items along with the books. If you would like to make a financial donation you'll need to mail it to the address below to have it go direct to the charity, but I will be happy to spend my own money mailing any books that people drop off at my office.
If you are not local and reading this there are a few ways you can help too.
The easiest is to make a financial donation to
Books for Heroes
610 Concepts 21 Drive
Norcross, GA 30092
Books for Heroes is a registered 501C so this is a tax deductible donation.
You can also collect and mail your own box of books. George will be happy to get you an address where you can mail your own box of books and tell you how to mail them. If you are interested in doing this then email me and I will give you his contact information. I don't want to put his email/phone number in a post without his permission.
For anyone geographically close (Atlanta area) there is so much more you could do. A- offer some storage space or be a collection spot B- help collect donations by having a book signing at a retail business. Again if you would like to be in touch with George to find out what you could do to help, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will send you his contact information.
Because my Donald was overseas, this is a cause that is near and dear to my heart. Because I cherish our freedom and support our soldiers this is charity that is near and dear to my heart. Please consider helping in some way.
