The Great (Big, Huge) Curriculum Swap

curriculum_swap_2

CURRICULUM SWAP CLOSED.  PLEASE COME TO HEAVENLYHOMEMAKERS.COM MAIN PAGE!

Today’s the day!!  This is SO exciting!

Thanks to the wonderful generosity of so many of you, there are loads of  books to look through!  Here are the rules for our “swap”, which is really  more like a huge giveaway:

  • You do not have to give a book to receive a book.  This is open to anyone and everyone who needs books, even if you don’t have books to give.
  • These books are FREE!  The only cost involved is shipping, which is the responsibility of the person who receives the free books.
  • If you are interested in receiving one of the books on the list, email the “giver” using the green email address within that list section to let the person know that you are interested in the book(s).  Please do not email me requesting the books – they aren’t mine to give! 
  • Those giving books away will wait until sometime on Tuesday (the 14th), then they will draw a random “winner”  for each book from the emails they have received.
  • If you are the one chosen to receive a book, please follow through with reimbursing the giver for shipping costs!!!!  The fact that you only have to pay for shipping on high dollar curriculum is a huge blessing!
  • There is no limit to how many books you can request before Tuesday, but please only request the books you need and will use!
  • If you’re just now hearing about this swap and you want to give books away, it’s too late for this swap.  BUT, stay tuned for an exciting announcement about an ongoing curriculum share project!
  • If you still have questions, read more details here…then start “shopping”!!

Okay…here we go!!!

    Many thanks to Laura and all the families participating in this swap!! I host a used curriculum consignment sale every year and know some of the work involved in something like this. It always blesses me to see people willing to freely give things that they no longer need. Thank you!!!

    THANK YOU EVERYONE! Laura, this is such a fantastic idea! We’re just starting to dive into homeschooling next year and looking at the price tag is so daunting.

    Thank you Laura for all the time and effort it took and is taking to make this possible. I am new to homeschooling and really appreciate all of the people willing to give their books to people like me who need them. God Bless all.

    Laura,
    We don’t homeschool, so I am not participating at all in this but WOW, how wonderful you are to put so much time into this! You truly have a servants heart….you inspire me!

    Thank you for hosting and thanks for everyone with generous hearts! I see a few titles that would help our new homeschooling family out a lot! I’m sad I’m too late to share some of the resources we don’t need, but hopefully next time!

    If you have any A Beka 1st grade material not included in the child kit, I’d be willing to get it off of your hands now instead of next year! :) This is our first year, so I have nothing to swap, but we just haven’t been able to order anything extra yet- my hubby just made his first payment of his first year at Bible college to be a preacher! :)

    Thanks!

    Kim – this is very random and not in context with curriculum,
    but have you checked out Sangre de Cristo Seminary? They don’t require
    a bachelor’s beforehand and if you plan on going into the ministry,
    tuition is free :-) http://www.sangredecristoseminary.com Almost everyone there
    homeschools, too. You can e-mail me for more details if you’d like:

    Thanks for organizing this! It is such a blessing to see not only the generosity of so many who have gone before me in home schooling, but your resourcefulness and generous gift of time in setting up this great, huge, big curriculum swap. Thank you, Laura!!

    Wow! I was overwhelmed with responses. You will have to do this again. Maybe in the spring. What a blessing to get curriculum off our shelves and into the hands of someone who will use it.

    Thanks for hosting this. Do you think it will be come an annual event? I was really overwhelmed with the number of emails I received for the few items that I had posted. Glad to be able to bless a few families, but hated to disappoint so many.

    Thanks for your work.

    I had just a few items to give away, but WOW – what a response! I was still getting requests up until Tues. night! I wish I could have responded to everyone who had a request, but it was just too many…sigh. THANKS Laura for organizing this!
