Looking to share the book ARCS I've collected over the last year, instead of holding a raffle, I went with Melanie Conklin's suggestion to DONATE the books to at-risk kids. She always has the best ideas and gave me the Never Counted Out. web link.
Never Counted Out is a non-profit that bridges the gap between at-risk youth and artists by generating access to creative mentorship. Our model focuses on empowering this underserved population in America via the arts. We believe that arts such as writing, music, painting, photography, film and spoken word educate, invigorate and instill the ability to harness one’s voice. By meeting artists and creating art, youth on the fringe have the ability to be heard and seen not only now but for the rest of their lives.
It was easy-peasy. Sent book rate. Now these great books will be in the hands of teens and kids who actually need the books. And that feels good!
