10% of today's store purchases will go to Team Green toward the Tackle ALS effort.
When we recently learned of author and former NFL great Tim Green's ALS diagnosis, we knew we had to get involved.
Many of you may have seen him in the media, tirelessly bringing attention to this devastating disease and raising funds toward ground-breaking research. We have hosted Tim at our store for author events many times. Each time we marveled at his passion for children's literacy, his capacity for connection with kids, and his commitment to spreading the word of the importance of reading to underserved communities. We have also been incredibly moved by his support of independent bookstores such as ours. He treated us as a partner in literacy, forging a relationship that supported independent business and leveraged our expertise and community connections to help get books into kids hands. He donated thousands of books and touched even more lives.
We proudly join Team Green and the Tackle ALS (www.tackleals.com) effort to bring much needed research toward defeating this terrible disease.
