One Book One World 2022 AAPI Book Drive

In 2021, One Book One World initiated the AAPI Book Drive in Chicago and donated 1958 books to 79 schools in the Chicagoland area to celebrate the AAPI Heritage Month. Inspired by our drive, volunteers from several other States joined our cause, and together we have donated a total of 4332 books to 197 schools.
This year, we have a brand new book list and will be donating 3 copies of each title to the schools. Our estimated expense for the 2022 Book Drive is $30,000. This will allow us to donate to 90-100 schools! Any remaining balance will be used towards program development, necessary administrative expenses, and reserve for next Book Drive.

Initiated by parents and educators, One Book One World is a group of dedicated volunteers who see a need in raising awareness of diverse cultures for children at a younger age.
Children’s books are one of the first things that help shape a child’s world. By providing a more comprehensive selection of books that feature authentic minority culture, we hope our next generations have a chance to learn about the world from an unbiased language.
To do this, we work with preK-12 schools, assisting those in need of quality resources. We will also partner with educational organizations to provide activities and workshops that further explore topics including but not limited to ethnic studies, identity pride, self-expression, etc.
