Be an angel this holiday season and give books and toys to families in need!
This year has been harder than most, and there are lots of families and folks who could use a little extra cheer. Help us make the holidays merry for everyone and donate a book or toy to our annual Be an Angel drive! The Be an Angel drive runs November 14th to December 12th. Red Balloon is pleased to offer a 20% discount on any books or toys purchased to be donated!
Be An Angel is proud to partner with Twin Cities Geek for their annual book and toy drive in support of families served by the Hallie Q. Brown Community Center in St. Paul's Rondo neighborhood, as well as the Women's Prison Book Project.

Since 1994, the Women’s Prison Book Project (WPBP) has provided women and transgender persons in prison with free reading materials covering a wide range of topics from law and education (dictionaries, GED, etc.) to fiction, politics, history, and women’s health. They are an all-volunteer grassroots organization that seeks to build connections with those behind the walls, and to educate those of us on the outside about the realities of prison and the justice system.
