the best friends you’ll never have

In January, one of the most beloved members of the Baby-Sitters Club forum on Proboards passed away after a long struggle with illness. We decided that the best way to honor our friend Afton’s (Aln1982) memory would be a book drive done in conjuction with the Lisa Libraries. As many of you may already know, the Lisa Libraries is Ann’s own charity, which was set up to donate children’s books to libraries in need. We have set up a wishlist on Amazon. Once purchased, the books will be sent to me, and a special bookplate will be inserted. Then I will transport the books to the Lisa Libraries, and afterwards they will be distributed to libraries, bringing Afton’s love of reading to children across the country.

So if you can, please consider donating a book, in honor of someone who was very special to all of us in this BSC community.

I never knew Afton online, but this is a great way to honour her memory. I’ve ordered two Saddle Club books for this great cause.

Thanks Ashley!

I need to add so many more books that people have suggested… I guess that’s what I’ll be doing tomorrow.

Just donated one. I only ever lurked at the Proboards, but Aln1982 was such a sweet person with such a great enthusiasm for the BSC. I hope this drive goes well.
