Joshua’s Pediatric Book Drive

Our little Joshua is helping me with our first ever book drive! This past December Joshua was hospitalized for severe dehydration.  He spent a few days at Central DuPage hospital getting some great care, and the hospital was so wonderful by giving him a lovely toy to help make his stay more enjoyable.  This toy helped bring a smile to his face during a tough time, and it was generously donated by someone.  We are now raising money with the help of Usborne Books & More to give the hospital some beautiful books that they can give out to patients who are having a hospital stay.  Once our book drive reaches $250,  Usborne Books & More will match 50% of our funds! We will be using all money donated to purchase books for Central DuPage Hospital’s Pediatric Wing where Joshua was admitted.  Our goal is to donate 100 books!  Once the books arrive, Joshua will be helping me hand deliver them to the pediatric unit.  It would mean the world to us if you can help by donating or spreading the word. Thank you and much love everyone!
