Golden Heart Books for a Cause
Golden Heart Books has a Heart of Gold for special children!
I stumbled upon this amazing origination providing a invaluable service to some of our most precious and deserving children. Golden Heart Books in a non profit org founded by Vanessa McGann. I can't say enough about the beautiful things she is doing. If you are looking to help a local charity really making a difference please consider THIS one. The smiles she helps create on the very special children she reaches are just priceless!
Golden Hearts sent my little one some very special video messages as well as a couple of books signed by several of her favorite characters. Below is just a sample of what they do and provide depending on the location and the child's heroes or favorite princesses. These video messages were tailored to my daughter (which I was so not expecting) and she just loves watching them!
A little about Golden Heart Books from the founder herself:
"Our mission at Golden Heart is all about encouraging children to explore the world and find solace in the written word. Beginning in 2015 we started with one girl with a book trying to find a way to bring a small dose of happiness to a little girl in the hospital. After that first book our reach quickly expanded to more and more children. Our books have been largely donated to local children’s hospitals and children who are struggling with various difficulties. Recently, we have been growing faster than we ever imagined! In order to reach more and more children we have built relationships with hospitals across the country and take individual requests that are mailed to children nationwide and in Canada. As of now, we have delivered the magic of these books to children battling tough issues such as Autism, Cancer, Spina Bifida, Heart Conditions, Bullies, and children in foster care. It is our hope that these books can bring joy and happiness to the children they are matched with".
What a great thing right? Wondering how you can help? There are several ways that will only take a few minuets of your time but will leave a lasting impression for so many..
- Donate cash to the cause, for every $5 they can buy 2 books!
- Visit their Amazon "Wish List" like I did, there you simply buy from their list and the items are sent directly to Golden Heart Books to be signed and then given out.
- Share their cause! The more eyes on this cause we can get, the more they can give.
Have a child that would love to receive a book or message from one of their favorites? Go to http://www.goldenheartbooks.org/ and apply. You will just need to supply the child's name, favorite character Disney or other. Golden Hearts Books asks that you make requests for only those children who are experiencing especially difficult times and are in special need of a little extra Disney Magic. Consider making a donation at the time of your request, it's an awesome way to pay it forward if you can!

I want to thank Vanessa for taking the time to get the videos for my princess as well as the signatures from so many of the Disneyland characters at the park. ~ Catheryn
