On Saturday I piggy backed on a Hope Kids event to hand out TONS of Wylder’s books donated by YOU!!!!  Since Wylder’s birthday in May you all have donated over 80 books to HopeKids … have I mentioned lately you are ROCK STARS?!?! Thank you, thank you for all you do. 

We have made a few Phoenix Children’s Hospital visits over the summer, but the good news was there were only between 5-10 kids at each visit, so we had lots of extra books.  So this Saturday I brought 50 books to a Hope Kids event in Tempe, and it was so successful and fun.  The children were overjoyed to receive Wylder’s books from YOU. 

I met a gentleman named Nenos who creates these monthly building projects events for the kiddos … SO fun.  This time they were building and painting their own individual desks!  Perfect for the books to go inside.  The Kids faces say it all, they were so happy and overjoyed~

Thank you for all you do Wylder Nation, you all spread so much HOPE!!  I plan to bring the rest of the books you all donated to the annual HopeKids Walk on October 19th


Wylder’s books continue to be available at


as well as on Amazon.com

We are also planning on doing the “Believe in the Magic of Giving” challenge again this November to help spread Wylder’s messages of  Hope into lots of living rooms this Christmas.  Thank you for all that you do!  None of this is possible without you.    7

All the kids loved getting your books this weekend Wylder.  Their little faces reminded me so much of you.  I love and miss you and will see you in my dreams.  xoxo
