Rebuilding our Bookshelves RZ
-- [New York, NY] Weeks after Super-storm Sandy ravaged the East Coast, philanthropist and author Carol Hollenbeck is sitting back along with countless other New Yorker's wondering what they can do to help those whose lives have been turned upside down. Known around her Hell's Kitchen neighborhood for her acting roles in 1960-1970's blockbusters, Carol is now calling on her friends both in NYC and around the region to round-up a bag of books and help put them in the hands of those without televisions, radios, and other technology. Starting November 16th, 2012 and lasting 30 days, donate books to Rebuilding Our Bookshelves by dropping them off or mailing them to the Renaissance Diner – 776 9th Avenue at 41st Street. New York, NY 10019. Books may be dropped off 24 hours a day.
Carol Hollenbeck debuted her first novel, True Blondes, this past Summer, and has recently been involved in several philanthropic projects to benefit the city of New York. In addition to helping those affected by Super-storm Sandy, Carol is scheduled to host a benefit event for victims of domestic violence during next season's New York Fashion Week. Carol Hollenbeck is also using her novel, True Blondes, as a tool to help those in need, by vowing to donate 25% of book sales indefinitely to benefit victims of domestic abuse through respected advocacy organizations around the country.
Carol Hollenbeck is available for live interviews. For information please contact L. Blake Harvey at The Lawrence Blake Group Int'l at (646) 481.8237 or Requests@LawrenceBlake.com. Follow Carol Hollenbeck on Twitter for updates on Rebuilding Our Bookshelves at www.Twitter.com/
