From Wishing Tree Books in Spokane:
Our Wishing Tree this year supports World Relief, Family Promise, and Odyssey.
World Relief: Would like “learning” books, puzzles, and/or sticker books
Family Promise: Would like books for all ages. Choose your favorites to share!
Odyssey: Use the suggestion on an ornament for ideas. Wishing Tree booksellers are happy to help with suggestions.
The Neverending Bookshop of Edmonds, WA, BookIt Nook of Poulsbo, WA, Paper Boat Booksellers of West Seattle, WA, and Queen Anne Book Company and Wise Owl Books and Music of Seattle, WA have teamed up this year to provide gift certificates for Seattle Children’s Hospital patients, family, and staff. Donations are being collected through December 20 to get them to the hospital in time for Christmas.
