What Christmas Means to Me

Look what arrived in the mail yesterday–the certificate for the latest Gift of Education donation I made on behalf of readers of Where the Butterflies Go and Leap. Merry Christmas to those who celebrate, and wishes for a 2011 filled with love, laughter and good surprises for all my other readers. Thanks so much to those of you who have bought my books–you’ve just helped make an entire school of young children happy.

May I ask one more thing of you? My latest poem, “Words,” with themes of anti cyber-bullying and anti gay-bashing, is, to my surprise, taking on a life of its own–over 50 comments, and readers are posting it on their own blogs, Facebooks, and even tweeting about it. I’m thrilled, because you never know who it might be able to help–and with the holidays here and so many kids off school, I’m sure cyber-bullying will be at its height. So, please do continue to pass it on (just link back to here okay? ) Thanks again for reading.

Our December 2010 Gift of Education
Through sales of WTBG and Leap, we gave a simple yet necessary gift: pencils to a whole school.

  1. Am thrilled that your poem about bullying is taking off Heather – I’ll be sure to post it to my friends via my yahoo account (I deleted my Facebook account because it was driving me crazy).

    Hope you have a wonderful festive season xx

    • Oh, I’m just a person who had an idea of how I could help, and followed through. I think the only difference between
      me and ‘the other guy’ is that I actually followed through. I don’t want to be that person who says “I’d love to help,”
      but then in the end is just full of empty promises. Plus, it’s been really rewarding for me to get all these certificates with
      the school children’s smiling faces on them! All the best to you for 2011 Neeraj.
