BENEFITING: Book Fairies Inc
EVENT DATE: Aug 29, 2017
When advised that currently 1 in 4 NY children will grow up without learning how to read, I felt obligated to get involved and ensure we change this inexcusable statistic. Fortunately there are people like our Founder Amy Zaklansky who care enough to dedicate their time to make a difference! I am honored to sit on the Board Long Island based charity The Book Fairies and work side by side with Amy to execute our mission of fostering literacy. The Book Fairies is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization that collects reading materials for people in need throughout metropolitan NY. The reading materials foster literacy and academic success, provide a respite from personal struggles, and nurture a love of reading across age groups. To date The Book Fairies has donated over 800,000 books across Queens and Long Island UNFUNDED and solely through our tireless leader and many generous volunteers including collaboration with various other charities supporting special needs adults. OUR WORK IS FAR FROM DONE!!! To move our charity to the next level and support more underprivileged children and adults we need your help! Take a moment and imagine you could not afford to buy your children and book. Think about living in poverty, and your kids attending a public school that can't afford a library. Think about children whose family does not support and promote education to give their children a better life. All donations are appreciated and will have a direct impact in your local community. Please support the The Book Fairies by making a tax deductible charitable donation.
