  • The 29-Day Giving Challenge: Day 9

    Today was Day 9 of my 29-Day Giving Challenge. I’m trying to come up with some ideas for giving beyond my comfort zone. But in the meantime, I sent off three copies of The Crayon Box That Talked to my friend R. She has three-year-old twins and a 12-month-old, and I thought it would be nice if each of them could have a copy of the book. Since it’s a paperback, she actually can’t give it to her 12-month-old, but I know that I enjoy having duplicates of a few things in the house for my boys sometimes, so I figured it couldn’t hurt.
