2009 Book Club Selections

I am sending this to you before our January meeting so you can check these out and order through Jeannie Ralston's Seed Campaign.  She will donate a percentage of sales through Amazon.com (not just her book) through the month of January to Abrazando Christo.  Please order if possible through her site.  Last year we donated over $1000 to purchase Spanish Bibles for the orphanage.  Queen Laurie has given her time to work  with this mission by traveling there for the past 3 years.  Thank you Laurie for all you do!!

From Jeannine's website www.jeannineralston.com :
"At the suggestion of a member of the Pulpwood Queens book club (a national book club with 200 chapters), the Seed Campaign is donating funds in January to Abrazando Cristo, a wonderful Roman Catholic mission program based in Lake Charles, Louisiana, that came to the aid of people in Nicaragua after devastating Hurricane Mitch and continues to work in Nicaragua and Honduras. One of its main projects is helping to educate children at the San Cristobal (Nicaragua) Orphanage. "
