I know lately I have been somewhat lacking in blog postings. Especially this week is super busy for myself and my son. Tomorrow is his Confirmation, so we have been super busy gearing up for this moment – cleaning the house, buying a suit, baking, and cooking up a storm. Not to mention that he skirt I will be wearing is currently sitting on my desk here in pieces, because I haven’t had the time to sew it together.
But before I run off screaming from everything I have to do, I have an extra special post to bring you. The fabulous people at DK Canada and Indigo have partnered up to do something really spectacular!! They have the same love of reading that I do, and from May 4th, 2012 until May the 6th, 2012 every time that you go into a Chapters/Indigo/Coles Store and buy a DK Star Wars book a portion of that books proceeds DK Canada will make a donation to Indigo’s Love of Reading Foundation. Isn’t that just fabulous !!
That isn’t it either ….Several Chapters and Indigo stores across Canada will be having special May the 4th parties this weekend sponsored by DK and featuring costumed characters from Star Wars provided by the 501st Legion.

Lastly, but certainly not least they are having a photo competition!!!

For each picture we receive, we will again make a donation to the Love of Reading Foundation. Info about the contest will be posted under “PHOTO CONTEST” at cn.dk.com/starwars.
We will pick an Office Favourite photo and that person will win a DK Star Wars library worth $200 and we will donate a complete set of DK Star Wars Readers to the library of school of their choice.
How generous is that of them to do all of this !!! So, get down to those events, snap some pictures and post them on facebook or twitter and get them to donate some serious money to The Indigo Love of Reading Foundation !!!
