FREE MATCHING AUTHOR GIFT!
With each $20 donation 1) a Title 1 School library receives a book, 2) an independent book store receives a sale 3) and hundreds of children will meet an author live.
Environmental literacy is one of the most important topics of our time. Understanding and appreciating the natural world, and our place in it, is an important goal of K-12 education. While we cannot predict all the issues the next generation will confront, we can be certain that among them will be issues related to the environment. Your donation to a Title 1 school will empower hundreds of children to make a positive impact on their future. But that's not all...
Most children will never meet an author, especially those in Title 1 Schools. Together we can change that. For every book donation, author, Nanette Heffernan, will match your gift with a free online visit for the same school.
About the book
EARTH HOUR - a lights-out event for our planet
Earth Hour--a worldwide movement in support of energy conservation and sustainability--takes place each March and is sponsored by the World Wildlife Fund for Nature (WWF). During Earth Hour, individuals, communities, and businesses in more than 7,000 cities turn off nonessential electric lights for one hour. Across each continent--from the Eiffel Tower to the Great Wall of China to the Statue of Liberty--one small act reminds all of us of our enormous impact on planet Earth.

Her lifelong goal is to make Earth a better home for children whether by making them laugh or addressing environmental issues that will affect their generation. Although she loves her leadership roles in the community, she is most fulfilled while dressed in school lunch trash and visiting schools and festivals to talk to thousands of kids about the importance of protecting our environment.
