Update: We did it! Thanks to your pledges, purchases, and support 30,000 books will be donated to First Book to make some holidays a bit happier.
Books are the best. They take you to faraway places and make you feel more at home in the world. They introduce you to new ideas and deepen connections with the things you love.
But not everyone has access to books. Over 44 percent of the nation’s children—more than 32 million kids—live in low-income households without access to age-appropriate reading material and educational resources.
During this 5th year of our annual campaign, we're asking you to commit to giving books this holiday season. For every pledge, we'll donate a book to First Book (up to 30,000). Use the hashtag #GiveBooks as many times as you want—each use counts as a new book in the hands of a child, and a testimonial to the magic of reading.
Let’s give books this holiday—to our family, our friends, and those that need them most.
