Simply put, as citizens, we're taking action because many children’s educational futures are still in jeopardy as they continue to demonstrate poor achievement in school. You can help us help children in two ways, by donating and by joining us, creating an individual fundraiser and sharing with your networks.
Studies reveal that children who learn to read early have a much more promising future and they no longer lag behind academically—they thrive. When children have books in their homes, the mere existence of those books creates powerful connections to the outside world—connections that have a positive and enduring impact on them, their families, and our communities at large.
In 2011, the annual Children’s Book Fair and the Abraham Lincoln Neighborhood Development Corporation, a 501c3 organization, partnered to distribute books to children in New York. Since then, we’ve distributed 20,000 culturally diverse children’s books. To continue this necessary work, we need your money or for you to create an individual fundraiser to share.
After the first Children’s Book Fair, one father said his 7-year old took his book everywhere and refused to put it down.
Your $25 donation will buy 25 children’s books.
To make an even greater impact, become a MAJOR DONOR when you:
1. Donate $25.00 (or a different amount)
2. Create an INDIVIDUAL fundraiser
3. Then, donate an additional amount to kick-off your fundraiser
Tax deductible contributions may also be mailed and made payable to:
