How to Donate a Book Just by Posting a Selfie On Instagram!

Want to donate a book to a worthy cause?? This is an easy way to do so and it won't cost you a cent!

Here's the scoop! I came across an article online through Real Simple's website titled, How to Donate a Book Just by Posting a Selfie by Katie Holdefehr. In the article, Katie Holdefehr wrote the following:
If you’ve ever followed along with Reese Witherspoon’s book club, then you already know that the star loves a good book. And yesterday, Witherspoon announced on Instagram that she’s teaming up with Disney and A Wrinkle in Time to support an important cause: providing books to children in need.
Want to help the cause? Witherspoon explains how easy it is in the caption on her post: “Post your #shelfie with the hashtag #MagicOfStorytelling and @Disney will donate a new book to a child in need through @firstbookorg ! ” It’s that easy—and it won’t cost you anything to contribute. If you're wondering what a shelfie is, check out #MagicOfStorytelling for inspiration. It typically means a photo of a beautifully styled shelf (and there are plenty of those that have been submitted), but if you don’t want to spend time revamping your bookshelves, don’t worry—the official entry rules ask for a selfie taken with a book. And it doesn’t have to be A Wrinkle in Time, but any title of your choosing. Then, just remember to tag it #MagicOfStorytelling, and Disney will donate a book to First Book, a non-profit that provides books and other educational resources to kids in need.
So, let's hop to it and post our selfies on Instagram with the requisite book in the photo and appropriate hashtags in the post to make sure a child in need has a book to read!
