Give a Classroom a Book: Special Booksigning Event and Campaign for Teachers


Join us in a special campaign to donate books to 179 Alliance for Catholic Education teachers nationwide. As we celebrate the college graduation of I Am God’s Storyteller illustrator Eric Carlson, we are hoping to raise $2000 to donate a copy of our book to every ACE teacher nationwide.

On Saturday, May 18, we will celebrate Eric’s college graduation from the University of Notre Dame with a special book signing at 1:30 pm at the Hammes Notre Dame Bookstore. Friends living nearby, we’d love for you to join us at this event to share our joy and to congratulate Eric.

For those who can’t be with us in person, we ask you to be a part of this special weekend by taking part in this campaign.

Our book I Am God’s Storyteller aims to share with every child that God has a unique and special mission for their life: to share the beautiful story of his love for each of us. We believe in the power of this mission and in the giftedness of every child to rise up and fulfill that calling.

The Alliance for Catholic Education seeks to sustain, strengthen and transform Catholic schools nationwide. ACE Teaching Fellows forms talented, faith-filled college graduates to renew and transform Catholic school classrooms. ACE teachers form a select cohort of the nation’s top emerging Catholic school teachers and leaders, and through ACE’s innovative instructional model, they develop the skills and knowledge necessary to serve some of the most under-resourced schools in the United States.  The three pillars of ACE — teacher formation, community, and spiritual growth — inform, inspire, and mobilize ACE teachers throughout their time in the program and beyond.

Our goal is to put a book into the hands of each of ACE’s 179 teachers. Please help us to meet this goal!

We welcome donations of any size via Go Fund Me, PayPal (, Venmo (@LisaHendey) or check to Lisa Hendey (10573 West Pico Blvd #31, Los Angeles, CA 90064). Our giving campaign deadline is May 20 and we hope to raise $2,000 to purchase and ship books.
