Lost-N-Found ~ The Spirit of Christmas


We are building a library!


Thanks to a brilliant suggestion from J.P. Barnaby, Dreamspinner and Harmony Ink Press are building a library for the teens and young adults at the Lost-N-Found center in Atlanta, GA. Lost-N-Found is a non-profit agency actively working to take homeless LGBT youth off the street. Find out more about Lost-N-Found and how you can directly Adopt-A-Youth.


We have two goals for 2013:

Fill the shelves of the lending library in the center. Dreamspinner and Harmony Ink Press will be sending 50 paperbacks to the shelter on December 15. We'd like to send more, so we are inviting others to participate. For every $5 donated, we will send another book. You can donate as much or as little as you'd like. $1 from five people will still provide another book. Put a Kindle Fire Tablet in the hands of each young adult in their resident program.
Dreamspinner Press will be buying and filling the Kindles with fiction and non-fiction. We've asked the Center's director for recommendations on non-fiction titles that would be helpful and relevant. The Kindles are a gift and will belong to the residents. We hope to continue this gift through 2014 as new residents move in and graduate out.
