Please Help Me With A ‘Land of Stories’ Book Drive


Chris Colfer Book

I wanted to take a moment and ask for your help with something. My best friend, Aunt Zoni, is doing a book drive and I’d like to ask if you’d help.

Aunt Zoni is a fan of the show Glee, and of Chris Colfer, the actor who plays Kurt. Last year, Chris published his first book, a fantasy novel for children called “The Land of Stories: The Wishing Spell“. In December, a fan group, Hugs4Chris, collected copies of the book to donate to children’s hospitals and Ronald McDonald Houses across the US as a Christmas gift to Chris. They donated over 470 copies of the book, but there was no coordinator for Phoenix. They’ve decided to do it again to celebrate Chris’s upcoming birthday, and this time Aunt Zoni is collecting books to donate to Phoenix Children’s Hospital (PCH).

The goal is to donate at least 20 copies of the book, at least 10 of which will be audiobooks. She’s already been in touch with the people at PCH, and they’re very excited to have new books to share with the kids and their families. If you would be so kind as to help Aunt Zoni (& me) reach this goal, I would be very grateful. There are several ways you can participate.

If you would like to donate a copy of the book, Aunt Zoni set up an Amazon Wishlist you can purchase from directly. Amazon will ship the books to Aunt Zoni, and you don’t have to share any personal information directly. If you would prefer to make a monetary donation, all funds collected will be used to purchase as many copies of the book as possible. If you make a monetary donation, PayPal will deduct fees of 2.3% + $0.30 from the total. You can send any amount you choose to Aunt Zoni via PayPal using this link. Please use the Personal>Gift tab if it is available.

If you’re not able to make a donation, but still want to help, I would really appreciate it if you would share this post with your friends and family. The books will be taken to the hospital on May 4th, so if you are ordering books via Amazon, please have them shipped to arrive by Thursday, May 2nd. If you are donating via PayPal. submitting your donation no later than Sunday, April 28th will allow enough time to order the books from Amazon.

If you have any questions, or want to make a donation by some method other than Amazon or PayPal, please leave a comment or send me an email. Thanks so much for reading all of this, and for helping out!
