Unfortunately, Books are Wings was not one of the top two finalists. That’s okay! We can hold our heads high and celebrate the fact we came in 5th place!!! Not bad considering there were 30 charities participating from all over the United States!
Thank you to everyone who voted during the contest. If it wasn’t for your votes, we would not have came this close. The vote goal of 25,000 was exceeded which means all charities received an additional $500 from Safeco Insurance. Books are Wings will be receiving a total of $3,500 on behalf of our Agency, which will allow them to put books back into the children’s hands. WOO HOO!
We would like to thank all the other Safeco Agencies for bringing awareness and placing emphasize on helping local charities.
Books are Wings may be a small non-profit, in a small city, in the smallest state, but they sure do have the biggest hearts!
