Response from First Book

When First Book was selected as the designated organization for the Holidailies Charity Project, I dropped them a note to let them know.

Today, I got a nice response back that I want to share.

Dear Mr. Rosenthal,

Thank you to you and your members for choosing First Book as the recipient of the Holidailies 2007 Project's charitable giving. We appreciate your generosity, publicity and support as we work each day to bring beautiful, new books to the most economically disadvantaged children nationwide. Together we are making a difference – as Madison, a third-grader who received books from First Book, tells us:

"Thank you for the awesome books. We lost all of ours in Hurricane Katrina. I love reading books. Books take me places where I haven't been before."

We look forward to carrying on our mission in 2008 to bring more books to children like Madison. Please continue to follow our efforts at, and once again, thank you for your support!
