Colorful Pages Coalition
Oct 24, 2019 • Connie Matisse
Kids are able to imagine a future rife with possibilities when their images are reflected on the pages of their books.
Earlier this year we raffled off a couple of multi-colored dinner plates for our friends at Word on the Street and were blown away by the incredible support of this East Fork community. We decided to make a habit of it. Each quarter we will raffle off a very special, rare, weird, experimental or otherwise highly covetable East Fork one-of-a-kind for $5 or so bucks a ticket. We’ll draw a winner at random and the money goes straight into the bank accounts of a non-profit in our Western North Carolina community working to make our region healthier, more joyful, and more just.
This quarter I am thrilled to be supporting The Colorful Pages Coalition, co-founded by my dear friend, Bianca Gragg. Bianca and I were in birth class together back when we had our first babies! She and her work to get books featuring characters of color and by authors of color into WNC schools.
When you buy a $5 raffle ticket, you’re entered to win that item and your donation goes straight to Colorful Pages Coalition.
We hope you’ll join us in supporting this awesome grassroots initiative to make our classrooms more colorful by entering to win one of these prizes!
