In the U.S., 30 million people over age 16 — 14 percent of the country’s adult population — don’t read well enough to understand See More


I am trying to fundraise to help begin a charity that will provide books to local schools and organizations to help battle the growing literacy problem in the US starting in my local area. With this money we will purchase books to donate, setup our 501c charity status, and begin establishing a tutoring program for children and adults. Our plan is to purchase as many books as possible from local estate and garage sales, thrift stores, and 2nd hand bookstores and distribute these throughout the community. Eventually we would like to expand into working directly with government and community organizations in establishing new and creative ways to battle literacy issues in schools and the community. At some point we would like to have the ability to have reading workshops not just for those looking to improve and/or learn reading skills but also workshops for teachers and community leaders on how to further engage and excite younger readers. A large part of our focus is on hard copy books and trying to rekindle the passion and sense of accomplishment in finishing a book in your hands rather than a digital format. We have many goals and this is hopefully just the tip of the iceberg and a jumping off point for the future. We are also accepting donations in the form of books, contact for more info!
