Help a child become a reader!    Here's your chance.

To continue the good work of past conferences, the SAS Global Users Group is sponsoring its Eleventh Annual Children's Book Drive, benefiting needy children in the host city of Las Vegas. The SAS Global Users Group is asking attendees to donate books to the book drive during the conference. The books will be distributed to reading centers in shelters and community organizations.

At the SAS Global Forum 2010 in Seattle, WA, attendees donated more than 1,900 books which were divided among 6 organizations in the Seattle area. Any book for a child or young adult is appreciated. Donate your childhood favorite, share it with the next generation and contribute to a child's future in reaching his or her potential. If you forget to bring a book and would like to pick one out, Barnes & Noble and Borders are located nearby.

Purchase a book from Barnes & Noble between March 15 and April 12 - Present the ID #10447274 when making the purchase, and a percentage of the net sale will be contributed to our cause - regardless of whether or not you're donating to the book drive!
