Newton, MA (PRWEB) March 06, 2012
Parent Perks, Inc., the publisher of The No Biggie Bunch® children’s book series for kids creatively coping with food allergies, is launching an initiative designed to have more books on the shelves of public libraries in time for Food Allergy Awareness Week, May 13-19, 2012.
Now through April 30th Parent Perks, Inc. is matching book purchases from The No Biggie Bunch series with book donations to the U.S. Public Library of the buyer’s choice. It’s easy and there are two options for purchase. The first is the Library 50-50. When customers purchase two books for their own bookshelves, the publisher will send two additional books to the U.S. Public Library of the buyer’s choice – free of charge.
The second purchasing option is the Library 100, which provides a public library with four books from The No Biggie Bunch series – two purchased by the customer for donation, plus two Parent Perks, Inc. will donate. All libraries receiving books will be given a note from Parent Perks recognizing the buyer’s donation and the buyer will be sent a note of acknowledgment from The No Biggie Bunch.
The No Biggie Bunch was the inspiration of two caregivers of kids with food allergies who sought, but could not find, resources that provided creative solutions and positive responses for every day situations in a kid-friendly way. Naturally, their search for support began in the aisles of the local public library.
The co-creators of The No Biggie Bunch, Heather Mehra and Kerry McManama, have a soft spot for public libraries, because they offer free access to information to every individual. The No Biggie Bunch team put together a campaign that they see as akin to a charitable coupon which can help spread food allergy awareness. “Your library will benefit when you purchase,” said Mehra. “We believe that the combined efforts of this tiny publisher and the food allergy community can work towards putting The No Biggie Bunch books in more card catalogues where they'll be accessible.”
The food allergy community is one that is devoted to awareness, because awareness saves lives. As part of that community, The No Biggie Bunch offers its message of preparedness, safety and positive attitude. In putting their adventures on the shelves of more libraries nationwide, they are sharing the kind of awareness that will circulate long after Food Allergy Awareness Week.
