What would you wish for this holiday season? After spending the weekend with Valarie Budayr of Jump into a Book and the wonderful staff at Wisdom Tales Press at the National Social Studies Council conference (NSSC) in Boston this past weekend, we would wish for all kids to be able to see themselves in children’s and young adult books.
With Valarie Budayr, author Alexis York Lombard and the wonderful staff at Wisdom Tales Press.
Valarie and I spent our time at NSSC looking for educators, publishers, authors and parents who felt the same way and wanted to spread the word on January 27th, 2015 at our 2nd Multicultural Children’s Book Day. We were thrilled to find others eager to help us in this mission!
At Heifer International with books that teach kids how a small donation can help end poverty and hunger worldwide.
Would you like to share your wish for others too? Capital One is bringing to life a real life Wish For Others wishing booth experience in a Capital One 360 café on Black Friday (11/28) through Giving Tuesday (12/2) in Back Bay Boston!
With H2o for Life which provides service-learning opportunities resulting in providing clean water for a school in a developing country.
Valarie and I believe in the power of multicultural books for kids. These books open doors, whether to validate a sense of belonging in the world or to realize that each of us is capable of changing it for the better.
The Capital One 360 Boston Café will be located at:
799 Boylston Street
Boston, MA 02116
11/28 through 12/2
Friday 7:00 am-6:00pm
Why is Capital One doing this?
