School On Wheels of Massachusetts This relief organization provides homeless children with education by motorizing the transportation of lessons and books! Having the mission "to educate children impacted by homelessness by providing academic support and one-on-one mentoring so children can reach their full potential", School on Wheels assists young students with tutoring, supply drives, family read aloud, and support services after leaving shelters.
Pajama Program, Boston Pajama Program of Boston has maintained the mission to supplement homeless, sheltered and orphaned children with the basic amenities of evening snugness. Asking for donations of books and pajamas, this team of advocates reaches out to provide "warm bedtime clothing and education through a creative program". Launching pj/book drives, slumber party and donation events, this charity is determined to reach their goal of giving 440,000 pajamas and books to the needy children of Massachusetts by the completion of 2011.
To both contribute to these efforts and encourage healthy reading habits, Suzie Canale will be offering storytime readings and supplying copies of "The Land of Chocolate Cosmos" to several metro School on Wheels students and Pajama Program children. The author will also be donating book- themed nightshirts, wishing that all of their "Sweetest Dreams in Life Come True".
