It's Give Back Time at Buttonwood!


As your community book and toy store, we see firsthand the power of positive connections in the generosity of you, our customers. Each winter, we celebrate you by sponsoring a give-back campaign. This year's drive is inspired by the children's picture book Kind: A Book About Kindness by Alison Green, a heartwarming book about the many ways children can practice kindness. 

The nonprofit recipient of this year's campaign is Fragile Footprints, a pediatric palliative care program that supports 90+ Plymouth and Barnstable county children with medically complex needs and life-limiting or life-threatening illnesses and their families. A program of Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital Plymouth and Cranberry Hospice, Fragile Footprints provides palliative medical/nursing consultation, case management and psychosocial support, and play and complimentary therapies in patients’ homes to help manage symptoms and mitigate crises. 

Buttonwood will donate 20% of book sales earned from January 18 and February 14, for Kind: A Book About Kindness to Fragile Footprints. Visit the store or buy the book on our website, and share the gift of kindness today, and every day!
