One of my favorite things about working for Better World Books is the amazing people I get to meet from across the country who share Better World Books’ vision to keep books out of landfills and support global literacy.
Last month, I had the privilege of meeting Kristin Putchinski of the Baltimore based band ellen cherry. I met Kristin while she was traveling through Atlanta following a performance at Eddie’s Attic in Decatur, GA.
The singer-songwriter is one of many musicians using their talent to support and spread awareness of the noble efforts of Invisible Children to end the war in Northern Uganda. I was happy to discover Kristin was already a fan of Better World Books and was eager to spread the word of how students can support Invisible Children through the Book Drives for Better Lives program at her upcoming benefit concert. Better World Books’ partnership with Invisible Children has brought in over 1.7 million books to generate unrestricted funding for Invisible Children in what is being called the largest book drive in history.
Two days after ellen cherry performed an Invisible Children benefit concert at Harford college in Maryland; I was contacted by a student group that attended the concert and plans to support Invisible Children through the Book Drive for Better Lives program!
