Grammar Good Deed #2

In honor of this year's (fast approaching) National Grammar Day on March 4th, we here at Super Grammar thought it would be a good idea to do some grammar-related good deeds. Doing a grammar-related good deed can be a lot easier than you might think. Check it out...

For Super Grammar's second grammar-related good deed, I headed out to my friendly neighborhood bookstore, which in my case is the Books Inc. on Park Street in Alameda, CA. This is a great little book store. I'll often stop in to pick up books for my 2-1/2 year old daughter. Anyways, on their bookshelves, I found a nice copy of Super Grammar.
After finding it, I took my copy of Super Grammar up to the counter and bought it. And after buying the book, I opened it up and I signed it.
Now, here is where the good deed part comes in. Just a few steps away from the counter is a donation box for The East Bay Children’s Book Project. This wonderful organization works to promote literacy and learning in the Bay Area by putting books into the hands of children who have little or no access to them.
I was very happy to add Super Grammar to the large stack of books that were already filling the donation bin, and I was also hopeful that, somewhere out there, a kid was going to be happy that he or she got a book about grammar, especially one filled with superheroes and supervillains!

So like I said, doing a grammar-related good deed can be a lot easier than you might think, and giving a grammar book to a kid might just be the perfect way to celebrate National Grammar Day. And even if it's not—you'll probably still feel really good after doing it.
If you're in the Bay Area and you'd like to donate a book to this organization, whether it be it a grammar book, a science book, or any other kind of children's book, you can find their drop off locations here: Donate. If you're not in the Bay Area, check with your local book store or library to see if they're participating in any similar types of programs.

Cheers!
The Super Grammar Team
