      For everyone that has pledged, you have no idea how appreciated you are. What's more important are the smiles to come this Christmas when your contributions reach their destinations. However, we're not quite there yet.

      I'm still email blasting and trying to get this out. As of now this project has over 8,000 facebook 'Likes' and only 15 pledges. Can you imagine where we would be right now if everyone contributed one dollar? That's a lot of books for a lot of kids!

      I'm very adamant about getting as many books to the kids at St. Jude Children's Hospital as possible over Christmas this year. With luck, not only will I be able to get them signed copies but possibly be able to attend one of the locations. I think it would be awesome to have each book gift wrapped and take the kids by surprise (with the support and permission of the hospital of course).

      My motto has always been "Dream Big, Be Big!" Of course I mean this in terms of success and that's my plan again here. If this works the way I want it to then it won't just be what I have in mind - it will come to fruition in the physical sense. I think for these kids to have a book delivered and signed by both the author and the illustrator it might just make their day. And yes, if the illustrator can attend as well - all the merrier. Now there's just one thing left. Readers!

      If you guys know anyone else that would like to back the project then attend with us to deliver books with us (all in our Jolly Santa hats of course), have them pledge and tag along! I want to see to it that our backers and attendees are mentioned / recognized in our e-books, etc!

      Spread the word!

      Again, a huge thanks to our backers. Each one of you are making this possible and will be remembered by many for years to come.
