Raising Money for Foster Kids While Holiday Shopping


From Dec. 1 through Dec. 6, a percentage of Barnes and Noble sales - both in-store and online - will be contributed to Play It Forward, a non-profit program that provides music lessons and instruments to children and teens in the foster care system.

Play It Forward is a program of For The Seventh Generation, operating under the guidance of Program Chair Sonya Mastick, owner of The Lesson Rooms in Royal Oak. It has been developed to promote and support the basic concept that children need not only survive, but to thrive. Music and musical instruction can open the door to creativity, personal growth and most importantly, hope.

How it works: In-store bookfair, Dec. 1 only. Online bookfair from Dec. 1-6. During this time, supporters can use the Bookfair ID number 10938850 at any Barnes and Noble location or simply log onto http://www.bn.com/bookfairs to shop. Choose from Barnes and Noble's amazing inventory of books, music, toys & games, movies, gifts, and more and Barnes and Noble will give "cash back" or "gift cards" to Play It Forward! If you shop Dec. 1 at the Grosse Pointe location you will not need the bookfair ID, simply tell the cashier that you are shopping for PIF and they will get credit. PIF bookfair gets credit for purchases when supporters enter the bookfair ID on the payment page during checkout.
