This thank you came to Heinlein for Heroes today.  Thanks to everyone that is supporting our H4H program. November 28


The total keeps growing.  We now have shipped 5,419 books.  Special thanks to Geo Rule, Vice-President of The Heinlein Society; he has donated 195 Heinlein books. You can donate too; H4H needs science fiction books and takes audio books.  Even if well worn or slightly damaged we’ll take them.


With the shipment of books going to the VA Hospitals today, the trust has shipped 1,420 H4H books, almost all of them hardbacks, to the the men and women of the armed services.   The books including postage were donated by the TRUST and sent out on behalf of THE HEINLEIN FOR HEROES program.
