Can You Picture It?

Children at St. Jude's Hospital receiving a box marked "Merry Christmas" and filled with some beauty, some color, and some brightness to dispel the darkness of chemo, hospital smells, and needles?

If only for 15 minutes.

Can you picture it? Parent with arm draped around child. Picture book in lap. Faint smiles. Bright eyes.

If only for 15 minutes.

Christmas is 3 months away. It's time to ask again for your generous spirit. This year I'd like you all to suggest your favorite picture books to wrap and deliver to St. Jude's Hospital. We do this every year with proceeds from Picture Perfect Childhood book sales.

Proceeds from Picture Perfect Childhood are used to buy new picture books. The books must be brand-new and untainted due to the high level of germ exposure used books would bring into the hospital. If you have already purchased Picture Perfect Childhood, perhaps order one for your library, your child's teacher, a new parent, or suggest it to a friend.

For a limited time only, you can order and save money while still giving a percentage to the children at St. Jude's Hospital.

Go to Lulu.com and enter coupon code OKTOBERFEST305 at checkout to receive 15% off your order. This offer is valid in US Dollars only and cannot be applied to previous orders. This offer expires on September 23, 2011 at 11:59 PM, so don't miss out!

Proceeds are collected at end of year and some light and life in art is delivered to St. Jude's on behalf of everyone who purchased a copy of A Picture Perfect Childhood.

Kindly share and help spread a painted splatter on the beds and walls of St. Jude's for the children who live where sun does not often shine and there are more gray clouds than light.

Thank you and God Bless you all!

And please leave picture book suggestions in the comments or on Facebook so your suggestions can be boxed and delivered in time for Christmas.
