A Call to Action- Don't Let the Crayons Quit!

If we haven't had the chance to meet yet, please allow me to introduce myself. I'm Denise and these are my niecyisms that I so passionately share with the world. And, these are two of my nestlings that I also passionately share. I am also a passionate supporter of family activities, community involvement, literacy and so many worthwhile causes that I hold close to my heart. Today, we stand committed as a family. We are putting forward our best effort to support crayons. Don't Let the Crayons Quit! #CrayonsDontQuit

This call to action is Breaking News all across the nation in your local Barnes and Noble Bookstores. In a recent statement from the Purple Crayon, "The battle lines have been drawn." This situation has the potential to trend (#CrayonsDontQuit) via all major social media outlets. "Only you can stop them. Join the effort."

There is still time to take action. How can you help? You can start by reading all about the current state of affairs in "The Day the Crayons Quit" hilariously written by author Drew Daywalt and equally hilariously illustrated by Oliver Jeffers. Visit Barnes and Noble now through September 30th, where you can write or draw a letter of support to the crayons, participate in Special Storytime and... you can even buy the book. Which I am beginning to think is the objective of this elaborate campaign. I could be wrong. I don't know. Will the crayons quit? I hope not, I love my yellow crayon, it the true color of the sun. The Day the Crayons Quit is a fun and quirky story written and illustrated from the crayon's perspective. Guaranteed to bring a smile to your face and give renewed respect to neglected crayons everywhere.
