Bring me a book is a great way to volunteer your time in a low-key, relaxed environment. There is time to chat with other volunteers and your time is used very effectively - knowing that you're getting a lot done for kids is a great feeling. And of course, you can't beat a free dinner! I would really recommend this event to anyone, especially those that may have limited mobility - it was great for me at seven months pregnant.

I've volunteered with this group on many occasions in the past and always had a wonderful time. The organizers really keep things moving well and the time just flies by. It's also such a great cause and they will answer any of your questions about their organization so that you know exactly why you're there. I recommend volunteering with this group if you are looking to participate with a good non profit and looking to have a fun time!

Bring Me a Book is a great organization that helps bring stories to children around the world. As a One Brick volunteer, I consider BMAB one of my favorite places to volunteer because the event allows volunteers to interact with each other while also protecting book covers with a layer of strong plastic.
