Tampa Bay Buccaneers cornerback Alterraun Verner raising money to buy books for children

TAMPA - Tampa Bay Buccaneers cornerback Alterraun Verner is raising money to buy children's books for kids in Tampa and his hometown of Los Angeles.

Verner is teaming up with Athletes for Charity and First Book to help purchase the books for schools in the two cities. You can help support Alterraun's efforts by making a tax deductible donation to the book drive.

Every dollar raised during the virtual book drive will be used only to purchase and deliver books in Tampa and Los Angeles. The best part, Alterraun says he will match every donation made during the book drive.

The goal is to raise $5,000 and already more than $1,400 has been pledged by twenty-four donors. Verner says no donation amount is too small. Even ten dollars can help purchase up to four books for kids.

Alterraun is also offering a few incentives for his donors to contribute larger amounts.

Donors of $25 will receive a postcard signed by Verner, while a $100 contribution will get you an autographed photo.

Anyone who donates $250 will receive a mini-helmet autographed by Verner. Donors of $500 will receive a Verner-autographed football.

The top level incentive for a donation of $1000 or move is an ATV gift pack filled with an Alterraun Verner autographed football, mini-helmet and photo and two tickets to an upcoming Tampa Bay Buccaneers game.
