Your donation will help build community and spread a love for literacy!

I am celebrating my birthday this year with the gift of giving and one that keeps on giving. Instead of a birthday gift, I am asking friends to donate at least $5 to help me build a blessing box and a little free library in my hometown, Adrian, Georgia. 

I want to help get as many of these little lending libraries in our communities to inspire a love of reading, build community, and spark creativity and conversation. In addition, I want to be sure to help those in need. I am counting on you to contribute.

How does it work?

A blessing box is a small food pantry.  People leave unopened, non-perishable goods for others to pick up anonymously. The purpose is to help fulfill short-term basic needs for those who don’t always have access to them.

 With little lending libraries, a passerby can take a book to read or leave one for someone else to find. It’s a book exchange for all ages.

How will your donation help?

Your donations will support the purchase and installation of a little library and a blessing box filled with food and books similar to the pictures above. . Here is the estimated break down:

  • Blessing Box 1…… $150
  • Little Library……$150
  • Post with topper and signs (official registration)…$80
  • Taxes/shipping….$20

Thank you so much for celebrating my birthday with me!

Love you much!

Dr. Ruth Alisha 🙂
