Participate in the 2017 Birthdays and Books Initiative

Link: Participate in Birthdays and Books

Never again be lonely on your birthday. Birthdays and Books returns for a second year. The initiative is one way that we connect our more than 1,600 members who live nationally and internationally.

Here’s how it works:

  • If you participated last year, you will need to sign up again.
  • If you are a January birthday, you’ll receive your birthday gift in early February.
  • Sign up here to participate.
  • We’ll randomly match you with another ELGL member.
  • We’ll provide you the birth date (minus the year) of that member.
  • You will send your favorite book to your match on his or her birthday. (Amazon has a great selection of inexpensive, used books.)
  • Your name and birth date (minus the year) will be given to another participant who you will hear from on your birthday.
  • Deadline for signing up is January 20.

Note: Only current ELGL members are eligible to participate. You can join ELGL here.
