I am pleased to announce a new program I am launching on my blog called Bookmarks For Books.
I have created colorful, handmade bookmarks I'll be selling for this program to benefit First Book, a non-profit organization aiming to provide books to children in need.
The bookmarks are $7.00 each. $5.00 of the proceeds will go to First Book, with the remaining $2.00 going to supplies and shipping costs. First Book has a minimum donation amount of $5, so each bookmark will be your very own personalized donation to this great charity!
Any leftover funds will be used to support my blog, Christie Writes Reviews, to help me further promote my site with advertising and additional promotions.
