Thank you to the big-hearted and generous people donating to the Kindle 4 Ellie Drive!

As of March 16th, our goal has been reached! Check back for a wrap-up post when Ellie’s Kindle is on its way!

A Kindle reading device will give Ellie sterile access to a vast array of children’s books.

Stories possess magic strong enough to melt the walls of our surroundings and transport us to new worlds. So your gift for Ellie is not only powerful, but magical.

Thank you for helping to change a hospital room into a magical place through stories.

  2. I’m ecstatic that we reached our goal. Soon, a Kindle will be on its way to Ellie.

    *THANK YOU* to everyone who took part in #Kindle4Ellie. Thank you donors, and thank you to those who helped spread the word on Twitter.

    A hospital room may be limiting, but it won’t limit Ellie’s love for books. We’re bringing the books to her — and it couldn’t have happened without you.

    Absolutely amazed and grateful,
    Emily Murdoch
