Dear Friends of Holy Cross, Please take a few minutes to read the following email from long time Holy Cross supporter, Jean Willard. Jean and her husband John along with many friends from St. Luke's Episcopal Church in Durham, NC have brought numerous mission teams to the school. Jean is doing a fund raiser for the school which will help us get wonderful library books. Now you can do your Christmas shopping AND support Holy Cross at the same time!!! Many thanks and blessings, francis
I'm here to help you with your Christmas shopping this year! I am hosting an e-show of Usborne Books. In hosting this e-show, I will receive free books. The $$ amount sold determines the number of free books. All free books received from this e-show will go to the library at Holy Cross Anglican School in San Pedro Belize. Our church has taken mission teams to Belize for the past 9 years and has spent the last 3 years helping build Holy Cross. We have watched it grow from 3 classrooms in a mangrove swamp with 62 students to 15 classrooms and 525 students from K-8th grade. We return in February 2010 with 25 team members and hopefully lots of new books!! The annual trip is one of the highlights of our year!
Never heard of Usborne Books? They are high quality, award winning books. They have earned the Learning Magazine Teachers' Choice Award, Dr. Toy's 100 Best Child Products Award, Parent's Choice Gold Award and Mom's Choice Award and more. Their 1300+ book selection ranges from baby board books through High School reference books. They have readers, fiction, puzzle stories, finger puppets, maze books, jigsaw puzzles, hands-on activity books and kits and much more. The sales representative for this e-show is my daughter, Jill Baird. When we went to visit them in Hawaii this past September, I got to help host her first sale. She had gotten a box of sample books and John and I spent hours and hours reading those books to our grandsons. They couldn't get enough of them! We later saw them at Volcanos National Park in the gift shop and have since found them at other National Parks we have visited. We were VERY impressed with the quality of the books, and I am very picky about children's books!!
Please take a minute and visit the website for this e-show and check it out! They're wonderful gift books for all children. And they'll be delivered right to your door! Or, you can do a separate order for each family and have it delivered to their door! Can't beat one stop shopping! If you're not sure what they would like, just send them the e-show site and ask them to make up a wish list for you!
If you have questions, please send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or give me a call at 919-471-0816. To learn more about Holy Cross Anglican School, check out their website and Julie's blog who is volunteering for 2 months at the school and writing about her experiences. Feel free to pass this info on to friends! The more the merrier!
Thanks for your support of this e-show!!
