BENEFITING: NATIONAL BOOK FOUNDATION INC
$1 sends 1 book to a young reader
The Book Rich Environment (BRE) initiative is ready to send great books to public housing communities nationwide. In partnership with the U.S. Departments of Education and Housing and Urban Development, the Urban Libraries Council, and the Campaign for Grade-Level Reading, we're bringing hundreds of thousands of books to children everywhere—but we need your help to get them into the hands of readers.
Help send over 250,000 books across the U.S.
Thanks to generous donations from Penguin Random House, Simon & Schuster, Macmillan, and Hachette Book Group, over a quarter million books are ready to be delivered to communities reaching from Montana to Massachusetts and from Texas to the Bronx. We've got the books, but now we're looking to you to help us deliver them: For every dollar we raise here, we can ship one book and begin the work of building a nation of readers. But the Book Rich Environments initiative doesn't stop there.
Help us do more
Almost 40 local public library systems nationwide are ready and waiting to distribute the books as part of large-scale community events, where children and families will not only receive books to take home, but will be connected with library resources and other local literacy programs. If we're able to exceed our fundraising goal, we can make local book distribution events even more exciting and engaging by supporting author visits, workshops and more. Help fill the bookshelves of children across the country—donate to Book Rich Environments today.
