“There is no shortage of books, there is a shortage of book fairies,” says Pam. You can start your own local Book Fairy Pantry Project with the free materials and guidance the website here.
As Pam shares, she “follows the call” as a relational activist (see Kindred Activism) to create BFPP projects such as:

About the BFPP
The Book Fairy Pantry Project is a grassroots family literacy movement. This project will be implemented by the people, for the people. Volunteer book fairy helpers will collect new and gently used, quality children’s books from donation boxes and book drives and deliver them to participating food pantries and WIC offices to be given out to parents.
