What You Wish For: A Book for Darfur

With the holidays quickly approaching and many people wanting to not only make purchases for their family members and friends, but also help those in need, this fabulous new book gives readers the best of both worlds.

Filled with stories by some of the most popular authors and poets in the world today, the central theme is “wishes.” Each story is different, some serious, some funny.  R.L. Stine, John Green, Joyce Carol Oates, Ann M. Martin, Jane Yolen, and Alexander McCall Smith are just a few of the awesome contributors to the collection, which includes a foreword by Mia Farrow.

A purchase of What You Wish For will benefit Book Wish Foundation, an organization which helps to build libraries in Darfuri refugee camps. All of their proceeds are donated to the UN Refugee Agency, UNHCR. What could be better?! If you’re interested in learning more about this amazing organization and tracking the progress of the libraries, I encourage you to visit Book Wish Foundation.

This would not only make an excellent gift for someone you know, but for those gift exchanges where you really don’t know the person you’re buying a gift for! Helping a wonderful organization do awesome work in our world, while providing a beautifully written story collection will please any gift recipient.
