For each book donated, myplasticheart will offer the donator 10% off his/her next purchase in store on day of donation. Acceptable donations are brand new, hardcover books appropriate for children ages 0 – 6. For more book guidelines, please contact myplasticheart at (646) 290-6866.

This foundation will make sure to get books to the kids who really need them, so in honor reading, doing something good, and of the recent national library week (April 13 – 19, 2014), donate a book today!
