We impacted the lives of thousands of children across the United States by providing them with gently used or brand new FREE diverse books. Books were distributed to underfunded schools, libraries and organizations where there was a need for diverse books. Ultimately, our goal was to collect at least 2,500 (or more) children's books from generous and willing donors across the country. We’re proud to say we DID it within nine months!
Dollars Raised (OUR goal)
Our fundraising goal was to raise at least $1,500 to help cover the cost of shipping all collected books to each state (with the exception of Connecticut). We also used any additional money to purchase new or used books in the event we didn’t meet our goal of collecting 50 books for each state.
