Inspired by the message from Dr. Seuss's classic How the Grinch Stole Christmas!, "Grinch-mas" is a time of year that encourages kids and adults alike to read the book and do simple good deeds to "grow their hearts three sizes" just as the Grinch does at the end of Dr. Seuss's story. This year, the program will give families a special opportunity to contribute to helping feed the hungry in our nation.
How can you #GrowYourHeart 3 Sizes, too? For every person who shares a good deed on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram with #GrowYourHeart, Random House Children's Books and Dr. Seuss Enterprises will collectively donate $1 (up to $20,000) to Feeding America. Good deed posts must be shared by December 25, 2017 in order to be eligible. One entry per person, per platform, per day. Keep an eye on the Grinch's ever-growing Heart-o-Meter here!
During this time, bookstores and local retailers all over the country will be hosting Grinch-mas events featuring holiday story times and activities, with special appearances by the Grinch, himself!
