The Story

Everett Louie Shuai Kelley had heart surgery at Mott Children's Hospital in Ann Arbor.  
Sadly after fighting hard for three weeks after surgery, Everett passed away.
We are celebrating his 4th birthday (July 29) - with permission from his family - by doing this book drive for Mott Children's Hospital. 
Mott has volunteers that go around with a library cart letting each child choose a book to keep during their inpatient stays.
My hope is to blow Mott and the Kelley family away with the number of books we can donate in Everett's honor.  
Everett impacted so many lives, and we know he will continue to in numerous ways, and this is one you can be a part of.
All donations will be used to purchase books from Usborne Books & More and Usborne will then match those donations with 50% in free books.
So $1000 in donations means $1500 in books in Everett's honor.
Each book will have a sticker placed on it with Everett's name as well as a hand drawn picture by Caylin Proffitt of his favorite stuffed donkey Fiesta.  These stickers will be paid for out of pocket by the organizer to insure that 100% of your donations go to books.
Please donate whatever you can and share this far and wide.

I am so thrilled that we are more than halfway to the goal for this fundraiser -- as donations come in, I have been adding books to the order that I am placing, and it is so exciting to see the book count tick upwards on that order!
The biggest request the hospital has is for board books, so I am focusing very heavily on those while also throwing in some chapter books and activity books that I know older patients will enjoy.
Thank you all so much for your support and please keep sharing this far and wide!
