With the generous support of our donors we are proud to offer you a book giveaway!

As part of the Alliance CaRES program’s ongoing effort to support you as you support the children or youth in your care, we feature books across age ranges that tell stories on a variety of themes that can help children in foster care. This way we can share our book recommendations with you and lucky winners get the actual book!

Here’s how our giveaway series works:
  •   Like the post!
  •   Comment and tag a friend! We’d love if you share why you think reading with children in your care is valuable, or share your own favorite book.
  •   One week after posting, we will randomly choose a winner. We’ll connect with you to get your info to send you the book. (Please note you need to live in Washington state.)
