When Kristia (Tia) Watson heard about the Bundles of Books program, she wanted to support their efforts. A California-based nonprofit whose mission is to provide books and other resources to needy children throughout the world, Bundles of Books organized a Books for Kids Day for Miller Children’s Hospital earlier this summer. This special day included book reading, literacy activities, canine companion visits and book distribution for all the patients and their siblings at this event.
Watson contributed 100 books to the more than 2500 new books, backpacks and art materials Bundles of Books distributed by more than 30 volunteers. “I created The Miracle Is Me” with the intent to help the reader, and the person being read to, take a moment to think about how special they are and how that contributes to what makes our world so rich,” says Watson. “To be able to give the gift of books and share this message to the amazing patients and families of Miller Children’s is one simple thing I can do to help a terrific organization like Bundles of Books. It makes my heart smile.”
