Hey fellow readers!
As most of you already know, we had to take down our original books for children website down. Both Britney and I were pretty disappointed with everything that happened between our charity and another nonprofit, but that wasn't going to stop us from donating this year under a different name.
I really need this to sink in with you guys, because every dollar donated--whether it was $100 or $1--made a difference. We are able to stretch your donations and buy a TON of hardback infant books for the kiddos at the hospitals as well as multiple YA titles for the teens in the hospital. Add in chapter and middle grade books and you've got some really happy kids! And it's all thanks to you. Seriously, thank you.
A special shout out to New Leaf Literary, who donated tons of amazing titles to this cause. Thank you! You guys are magical.
In true I Eat Words fashion, here's our documentations as to where your money went, what books were bought, and where these books went.
It's always such a humbling experience to do this, and we hope you've enjoyed seeing where your donations go these last three years.

Special thanks to Kelsey Dickson, who was our financial coordinator this year. Her money went to buying books for the children's shelter in West Texas as a charity for the victims of the explosion earlier this year.
