THANK YOU TO OUR SUPPORTERS!!
In the past month we have received generous donations (in various forms) from supporters. Some of our most recent are -
Sebert Lopez, a friend of a friend of mine heard about Big Rig Books and what we are all about, so he took it upon himself, unbeknownst to us, to host a book drive for us. "I vowed to do whatever I could to help keep the Big Rig rolling because what you do is really needed."
What an AWESOME supporter!!! Just received another 3 boxes of great books for Bert.
Ideal School in LaGrange for 6 great boxes of books from a book drive they recently held. They were just what we needed and came at the perfect time. Now the books are already in new homes!
The Christian Church of Clarendon Hills for another successful book drive (the third annual). They held the first book drive for us even before we were Big Rig Books!!!
Author U.S. Marine Sr. for donating 2000 copies of his latest novel, The CIA Psychic Teens Book 2!!! That's a lot of books, but we have homes for them!
Really Big News...
Thanks to one of our biggest friends and supporters, Joan Metz, we are now a charity on Amazon.com. If someone wants to support us financially, they can buy from smile.amazon.com, just as they would normally on Amazon.com. It is easy. Just choose Haulin' For Humanity (BIg Rig Books' parent organization), as your preferred charity. Then Amazon.com will give us .05% of whatever you purchase-at no extra cost to you!!! How awesome is that! Please tell your friends and family (Facebook is a great way). We need all the support we can get to keep the Big Rig filled with children's books.
Our good friend and supporter, Tiffany Cruickshank, is hosting "Make A Difference Mondays" at her store in Downers Grove, Peak Running. If you donate a book to Big Rig Books and make a purchase, she will give us 10% of the sale. It's a win/win. It is also a win for her customers because she has a unique selection of performance running shoes that not many other stores carry. PLUS, she is a wealth of knowledge regarding running and fitness.
