Give A Book In Your Name
A Book to Every Child...
Do you have a first book story? Do you remember that moment when, as a child, your imagination was magically captured by a book that you loved? Nurturing reading in a child is integral to ensuring their successful future. In collaboration with FirstBook, who provides new books to children in need, Give A Book in Your Name shares your moment and its impact by promoting positive experiences in reading. A new book, given to a child, becomes a small gift that impacts a lifetime.
Give A Book in Your Name places your name within a book donated to a child at the Harlem Book Fair (HBF)( www.harlembookfair.com) and throughout Harlem through our community, church, and school-based partners. Donors are asked (but are not required) to post an Instagram or Facebook video on the HBF site ( www.facebook.com/harlembookfair1999) that shares the impact of reading in their lives or why they chose to make a difference through books.
A 3-minute video of children thanking donors for their book will be uploaded to the Harlem Book Fair website, capturing the moment when their books are received. Through participation in Give A Book in Your Name, donors will be acknowledged as belonging to a national and passionate community of literacy advocates.
