I’m a huge fan of Chronicle Books. I’ve purchased many a books they’ve published, gone to their launch parties and last year I even pitched them a book idea at their pitch for charity event. They are an awesome San Francisco based company that cranks out top notch books and truly cares about the community.
This year, they are giving away $500 worth of Chronicle books in their Happy Haulidays give-a-way to one lucky blogger and one commenter on the winning blog post. They are also asking the winning blogger to choose one charity to receive up to $500 of books.
The charity I would choose to receive $500 worth of books would be Project Night, Night. They give out care packages, free of charge, to homeless children from birth to pre-teen who need childhood essentials to feel secure, cozy, ready to learn, and significant. Each Night Night Package contains a new security blanket, an age-appropriate children's book, and a stuffed animal -- all nestled inside a canvas tote bag.
Imagine what they could do with $500 worth of Chronicle Books!
I hope I win and one of you lucky commenters will win right alongside me! If so, this is the list of Chronicle Books that I would get with $500 credit.
