This is a quote from them of the work they do…”Every purchase helps clean the seas, save the bees and plant trees.” They are out of northern California and they plant 10 trees and donate 10% for every item sold to their work to save the earth.

A Book Donation From Author Kevin Lovegreen

We just received a wonderful donation of 17 children’s fishing and hunting books donated by children’s author Kevin Lovegreen from St. Paul, MN. Some of them are children’s chapter books, and some of them are children’s hard cover books. They are filled with adventures for little kids to read and enjoy. They are fun and engaging books and will encourage the kids to love to read. A HUGE thanks to Kevin Lovegreen and his team for this wonderful donation to our refugee children.

We just received 5 cases of books donated by Dr. Wayne W. Dyer’s publishing company. Each case has 36 books of 5 different titles in it…for a total of 180 books with such amazing messages to children. “Incredible You” is a New York Times bestseller. We had gotten a donation of one of his books ….I read it…and knew I wanted to get some of these for our refugee children. I contacted his publishing company, he died a few years ago, and they approved a large donation of his books to DCIH for our refugee children.
