Thank you to all who participated.

Winter tends to feel a little bit colder and a little bit darker over here at Sweet Pea Project.  It is a heavy season for our board of directors.  Nicole's son died in December.  Stephanie's daughter died in January.  Beth's son died in February.  The urge to shut down and hibernate like a big furry bear can be pretty strong this time of year.  That is why we have decided to spend the winter doing something special to honor our children during the months that hold both their births and their deaths.  And we'd like to invite you to join us and allow us the privilege of honoring your children along with ours, through Sweet Pea Project's Winter Book Drive.  We were blown away last year when we received donations for 747 books to be gifted to bereaved parents in honor of your sweet children.  We hope, with your help, this year's book drive will be just as successful.  

Sweet Pea Project’s Winter Book Drive begins on December 1, 2013 and ends on February 28, 2014.  During this time, we will be accepting donations in increments of $5 to go toward our book donation program.  For every $5 you contribute, one copy of Stephanie Paige Cole's Still: a collection of honest artwork and writings from the heart of a grieving mother will be donated in your child’s name to a newly bereaved parent.  A special bookplate (examples pictured below) will be placed in the front cover of the book dedicating it in your child’s honor.  Please feel free to share this flier with your friends and family.  There are many people in our lives, I think, who would love to help but simply don't know what to do or say.  This is a great way to involve them in your child’s remembrance.  

To participate, simply send your donation to Sweet Pea Project by check, credit card or PayPal.  Be sure to note that your donation is for the Winter Book Drive and be certain to include your child’s name just as you’d like it to appear on the bookplate.  As always, your donation to Sweet Pea Project is tax deductible.  If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact
