Help Support Team Matthew Ouiment

Matthew Ouimet is 2 years old. He has Primary Hyperoxaluria Type 1.   He just received a liver/kidney transplant and is at UCSF fighting like a little warrior to receive and keep these treasured gifts.  Prior to surgery, Matthew’s Mom, Kristi Wisecarver -Ouimet was driving 6 days a week from their home in Antioch, CA to UCSF (University of CA San Fransisco) for dialysis and to prep Matthew in the hopes that he would some day receive these organs. As you can imagine, bills are piling up! The Ouimet family’s other worries should not be  financially based.

Barefoot Buzz: Independent Publisher

Independent Publisher recently ran a lovely feature, ‘Indie 

Groundbreaking Publisher: Barefoot Books’, including an interview with 

Barefoot Books CEO and Co-Founder Nancy Traversy and some great 

coverage on our Ambassador programme:

‘As part of their mission to give back, Barefoot Books has established its 

Ambassador program, which Traversy called their “social selling network 

of passionate moms, teachers, grandparents,” and others who sell 

Barefoot titles, receiving a portion of the profit, much like an independent 

bookseller. Barefoot Books Ambassadors include any and all individuals 

passionate about the power of children’s books and in building 

communities, participating in charity work and benefiting those around 

them while earning independently. . . . The Ambassador program also 

gives the founders a chance to connect more closely with its distributors 

and consumers, establishing and expanding its community of readers.

Remember your favorite book as a child?

You read it again and again. You may even still have it, with your name scrawled inside the front cover.

It made you the Book Person you are today.

Imagine never having that book. Imagine a childhood without a book to call your own.

Today, there is only 1 book for every 300 children in low-income neighborhoods in the U.S.

That’s where RIF comes in. To help children with hungry minds.

Children like Michelle, whose teacher credits the books RIF provides with helping her through the sudden loss of her father. Or Rhonda in Nashville, who chose a RIF book not for herself, but because she wanted to read it out loud to her younger sister. Or Aidan, who sent us a card saying kids at his school don’t have enough books.

There are 16 million kids living in poverty in the U.S., and they need our help.

You’re a Book Person. Will you be a Book Hero?

For just $10 a month, RIF can get 4 kids in need a book of their own every single month.

And you’ll get a free RIF bumper sticker.

Help give children a book to scribble their names in, a book to treasure and love, a book to call their own.

Book People Unite,

Jay Brown
One of RIF’s Book People

P.S. RIF served 4 million children last year, but so many more need our help. Join RIF’s Book Heroes today – at any monthly amount.
