Our hope is to impact the lives of thousands of children across the United States by providing them with gently used or brand new FREE diverse books. Books will either be given directly to deserving children to start their own home library, or they will be given to underfunded schools/organizations where there is a need. Ultimately, our goal is to collect at least 2,500 (or more) children's books from generous and willing donors across the country.
Dollars Raised (OUR goal)
Our fundraising goal is to raise at least $3,000 to help cover the cost of shipping all collected books to each state (with the exception of Connecticut and possibly New York). We will also use the money to purchase any new or used books in the event we don't meet our goal of collecting 50 books for each state.

Thousand books COLLECTED (Our goal)
