Hope for Haiti linking up with We Give Books

I am proud to announce that Hope for Haiti will be teaming up with We Give Books. Click the link and visit their amazing site. Below is a little info on the organization. Check back soon for more details and ways to help!

We Give Books is a new digital initiative that enables anyone with access to the Internet to put books in the hands of children who don’t have them, simply by reading online.

We Give Books combines the joy of reading with the power of helping others, providing a platform for caregivers and educators to inspire children to become lifelong readers and lifelong givers.

We Give Books also helps some of the world’s best, most inspiring, literacy organizations by spreading the word about their great work and by providing books to the young people these organizations support.

Welcome to Hope for Haiti, the blog

This will be the official blog for the children's picture book, Hope for Haiti (Putnam, October 12, 2010).

I will be updating this blog with news about the book, about Haiti reconstruction, and with opportunities to help raise awareness, support, and funds for the efforts to build a strong and self reliant Haiti.

Please follow this blog and pass the word to friends and family. We can move mountains if we work together.

Thank you,

Jesse Joshua Watson
