Sal, his wife Sheri and Sweetles® Press have donated over 4,500 books to non-profit  Arizona Helping Hands

The ‘Mary Elizabeth The Spotless Cow‘ books go to AZHH’s Birthday Dreams program. There are over 18,000 foster children in Arizona, many of whom have never had a birthday party, let alone presents. This wonderful program gives children from 1 year to 18 years old a personalized birthday bag of gifts, wrapped and decorated (with love) by volunteers, and includes a toy, a book and other goodies to make a special birthday for a boy or girl in foster care.
