weeks after your visit, one of my students fell ill with unexplained
liver failure and was life flighted to UCLA MedicalCenter. He underwent
a liver transplant, donated by his mother, and was in a coma up until
recently. His dad reads to him letters my class sent and daily
affirmations from The I AM! Affirmation Book you gave him. He responds
positively. I am happy to say he is conscious now and recovering. I am
sure your book and our many prayers are contributing to his healing.
Thank you for coming to visit when you did and join me in knowing
Carlos's wholeness & complete recovery. I also had the children use
their I AM books in class this morning to help them prepare for their
SAT9 tests this week. It is so supportive!!! Thank you for your gifts
to us. "

I AM Foundation,
I am writing to thank you all so much for the
wonderful book gifting ceremony on Saturday, July 26th, 2008 with Mayor
Jim Wood. It was truly marvelous to see the children and their parents
listening to the speeches, especially the motivational portions, they
were great, highly inspirational for all of us!
The 2000+ books
you donated to us were a blessing, there were so many high quality
books, the families will be enjoying these books for quite some time.
We are able to give the children a book to take home as part of the
summer reading program thanks to your Foundation's generosity. This
is done at the Civic Center and Mission Branch as well as the two
bookmobiles. Some of the extra donated books will be given to the
Wounded Warriors Center, as well as being distributed to the Friends of
the Oceanside Public Library.
We truly appreciate all that
you've done for the Oceanside Public Library, it's been a pleasure
working with you and meeting you all was the icing on the cake!
Thanks again, the best of luck in the future,
Oceanside Public Library
received all the great books your group sent for the children affected

allowing us to fulfill a small part of your Million Books for Kids

Dear Lisa at Love Books and The I AM Foundation,
cannot begin to thank you for the "Love Books" you sent the students at
Woolmarket Elementary. The kids were so excited when the boxes arrived
and have had the best time selecting a book for themselves.
are at Woolmarket Elementary which is a rural school close enough to
Biloxi, MS to share their zip code. It is a Harrison County School. Our
school neighborhood was really hit hard by Katrina and many of the kids
lost homes and everything in them so the books were awesome! They were
so excited when they arrived! I teach Gifted Ed so my kids got first
pick and then spread the love - they had such fun doing that too! You
have no idea how special they were. Only 65% of the kids returned and
even they are in and out depending on the availability of FEMA trailers
and temporary housing.
Some of the books had names and addresses
in them - the teachers assured me they would make sure the kids get a
letter. I am trusting them on that one.
Things are happening but
the devastation is so vast that it is hard to realize unless one
actually sits down and thinks where we were two months ago and where we
are today. It is going to take a long, long time before things are
noticeably better. Wal-Mart is pretty much all that is open even
McDonalds has a limited menu - no McFlurries!! Libraries were destroyed
or damaged so the books were wonderful!
People have been so overwhelmingly, unbelievably kind. Your prayers certainly help to make it bearable."
are special! We all believe in the power of books to teach, entertain,
and inspire. We can't imagine a world without books, but we saw this on
our TVs for two weeks in early September. As the Gulf Coast digs out
and its residents are relocated across the country, and now after Rita
creating even more havoc, the need for books back in the lives of
children and adults is greater than ever."

are entirely welcome, and I have to thank YOU for organizing this great
idea. For a person who loves books and relies on them every day, I am
totally in favor of this wonderful way to help these kids. You are
doing a great thing. I sent out a version of your request to my email
network this morning, so maybe you'll get some more donations from
All the best, Carol M.
