The beautiful and heart-warming animation below was created for MILK+BOOKIES, a non-profit organization that exposes young children how great it feels to give back while celebrating the love of a good book.
Milk + Bookies was founded in 2004 by Meredith Alexander, a mother of two sons who resides in Los Angeles. In 2009, Heidi Lindelof and Laura Zimmerman, also L.A.-based moms, joined Meredith to help Milk + Bookies grow, all the while maintaining its core mission. That same year, Milk + Bookies was designated a 501(c)3 non-profit corporation.
At Milk + Bookies events, boys and girls are provided the opportunity to select, purchase, and inscribe books that are then donated to peers who do not have access to books of their own. Events feature music, story time, and, of course, milk and cookies.
