Living Your Five presents... Snow Angels - The Book Kind

We talk a lot on Living Your Five about gratitude and paying it forward. When I saw this blog post earlier in the month, I knew it was perfectly in line with our mission!

Josie Leavitt of The Flying Pig Bookstore in Shelburne, VT shared a wonderful program on PW's Shelftalker blog this month. The bookstore creates a snowflake tree with the age and gender of kids in the community who are in need of holiday gifts ala books. Customers come in, choose a snowflake, and the staff helps them select books (at a discount - very thoughtful!) which the store gift wraps and delivers to over 150 kids.

Isn't that a wonderful idea? I love it!

Here's the full blog post with all of the details. Cheers to Josie, Elizabeth, and the entire Flying Pig team for going above and beyond during the holidays!
