Bid at online auction to benefit Chatham County childhood literacy

ferst-logoHere’s a chance to instill a love of books in preschoolers by making sure all Chatham County children have quality children’s books in their home.

Bid on enticing items in an online auction that’s currently under way here. Proceeds benefit the Chatham County branch of the Ferst Foundation for Childhood Literacy. The goal of Ferst is to provide all Georgia preschoolers with a free, age-appropriate book to a registered every month until the child’s fifth birthday.

The “Ferst Things First” online auction to promote childhood literacy will be going on until Oct. 14. But bidding on the first round of items ends this Wed. Oct. 7. Then the second round begins.

The Georgia foundation’s goal is to eliminate the key reason why parents don’t read to their children: the lack of quality books in their home.

Anyone who wants to improve a child’s ability to read can do so by bidding on enticing auction items here.
Bid any time of the day on donated items including a log-cabin weekend rental in North Georgia; gift cards; cooking and music classes; autographed books and CDs’ custom pet portraits; professional photography sessions; restaurant gift certificates; customized jewelry; artwork and pottery.

Participants can even bid on a book club visit from author Jonathan Rabb to discuss his most recent novel Shadow and Light and an autographed copy of the book.
