My Book Stork

| May 21, 2008 | 2 Comments

I recently received an e-mail from a friend spreading the news of a great new online “book registry”, www.mybookstork.com. After reading the e-mail I couldn’t help but think what a great idea the website is, and the best part … proceeds from books purchased through the website go to great non-profit charities. The e-mail I received does a wonderful job of detailing the new site, so I have shared some below:

What It Is:

My Book Stork is an online website for children of all ages to register for books and educational items.  It also works as an online registry where parents, family and friends can view and purchase exactly what the child wants for a birthday, holiday, special event or just for fun.  Essentially, it is like a wedding registry for books!

‘Mom’s to Be’

Another exciting way of using My Book Stork is for ‘Mom’s to Be’ that are throwing baby showers and believe in the gift of reading. The ‘Mom to Be’ can register for the books, stuffed animals and gift baskets of her choice. Meanwhile, family and friends can purchase items from her “wish list” to help build a library that will be created in time for the arrival.

Charity:

My Book Stork is dedicated to enriching the lives of children and families in many ways. Whenever a purchase is made from MyBookStork.com, customers decide what organization they would like to benefit from their purchase by selecting their charity of choice and My Book Stork will make a donation.

Share:

Please visit the site and share it with family and friends.  The creators truly appreciate your feedback and support, as it is essential to the success of My Book Stork and the causes they represent.  I wholeheartedly admire the mission of My Book Stork and the ability it has to impact many lives in years to come.  As this website is very new, they look forward to expanding, growing and sharing as they “Deliver Inspiration!”
