#speakloudly FINALLY

 The post office is not one of our favorite places to go--just ask Lisa. She spent approximately 45 minutes in a stand-off with Mia who wouldn't thank a kind postal worker for a candy cane. We don't mess around with thank-yous.

Anyway, I finally mailed off our Regulator-donated copies of Speak (thanks, Mom!) as apart of the #speakloudly campaign.

The box to the left made its way to Jen Bigheart who will deliver to the Austin Children's Shelter. It sounds like an incredible place and we're so happy that our copies of Speak and some others we really enjoyed will find a good home!


The box to the right is on its way to the Cleveland Rape Crisis Center. A librarian suggested the organization and they were really excited to get the books!

Speak is a difficult story but is ultimately a hopeful one. We can only imagine the good these books will go on to do! Work your magic special books!

This is so, so kind of the two of you (and the regulator). The two organizations seem very deserving of such powerful stories and I'm hoping the books find their way into needing hands.
