Children's Book Giveaway- SSU!
I am Desmond W. Delk, author of I Love My SSU!. My children's book, based on Savannah State University, has been my way to not only get young students excited about reading, but also a way to get them enthused about attending college.
For the past 2 years, I have participated in the Savannah Children’s Book Festival. During this event, thousands of youth are able to meet authors, learn about writing, and purchase copies of so many unique children’s books. However, every year, many children aren’t able to afford the great literature. I want to be able to give some of these students free copies of I Love My SSU!.
My goal this year, with your support, is to raise as much money as we can to get copies of I Love My SSU! in the hands of deserving students that visit the festival. Your donation will also help to support the I Love My SSU! Book Scholarship, for Savannah State University students. Last year, three students were awarded scholarships, and I want to continue that for years to come. Please consider planting a seed in the youth. With positive cultivation; the sky is the limit!
I am so grateful that you all made the sacrifice to support my efforts during the 2014 Savannah Children's Book Festival.
Because of each of you, more than 60 children and families now have a copy of "I Love My SSU!" on their bookshelves! It is my hope that these books are a catalyst that motivates these students to aspire to learn more about HBCUs and colleges, and catapults their desires to attend college.
Each of the youth said thank you! Some even said that it was the first time that anyone every autographed a book for them. I thank each of you for allowing me to make indelible impacts in the lives of these children. Because of you all, I am reaching my goal at cultivating the concept of college in the minds of the youth at an early age. Once Again, I thank each of you. Please enjoy the photos.
PS. I will keep you posted with the status of the scholarship competition next semester.
In under two weeks, we were able to not only exceed the initial goal I set, but we reached the newly established amount!
Because of the 28 donations, 373 visits of the page, and 1,946 shares; we are now able to distribute more than 4 dozen free copies of "I Love My SSU!" at the 2014 Savannah Children's Book Festival!!!!
Thank you all for your support! And remember, the event isn't until November, so whatever additional we raise will go to even more children!!!!!
All the best,
Desmond W. Delk
