The Story

Meet 6 Year-Old Taylee!  Since Taylee was 11 months old, she has spent many nights in the hospital for a heart condition.  She has had 4 heart catheterizations, 1 open heart surgery to replace her valve and is anticipating more surgeries in the future.  The highlight of her hospital stays are the books and activities the hospital offers.  Books have definitely brought a smile to her face during the hardest times of recovery.  

We are teaming up with Usborne Books and More to raise funds in order to help provide books for our local hospital so that other little children, like Taylee, can smile or giggle because of a book, color to take their mind off of their circumstances or even put band aids on a book and tell the characters "All Better."  

With your help, and the help of Usborne Books & More's 50% Matching Grant Program, not only will we be able to provide so many more books to supply the hospital, but we can help children get through tough situations.

HOW CAN YOU HELP:
-- Click The DONATE Button.  Every little bit helps!

-- SHARE this with your friends & let them know about this awesome opportunity to help a little 6 year old give back to those who have helped her.

-- If you are wanting books of your own, you can also purchase your own books by going to the link (www.booksfromtheheart.kimsbookshop.com), and we will receive 50% of your total purchase in free books!

Thanks for helping Taylee help other little hospital patients!!!

Friends, Heather and I are completely humbled by your generosity to help Taylee be able to give back to the hospital through books!!  At this point, she will be able to take approximately $1700 worth of books to the hospital!!!  How amazing is that!?!  

If you haven't share this with your friends, please do so.  We would love to reach our updated goal of $1500 if at all possible.  We are going to close the fundraising early on Monday so we can get the books ordered and hopefully have them arrive by Christmas!  Wouldn't that be an absolute wonderful gift!?!
