Hi, My name is Solonge and I am co-owner of ASA Books , “Home of self-published children’s books that teach literacy through theme-based storytelling and engaging art”.
ASA Books launched its 4th Holiday Book Drive Campaign Tuesday, November 1st, which was National Family Literacy Day.
For the last three years, we've gifted our children's books solely on our own. Last year, in 2021, we did a soft fundraising launch, which was a success. We raised funds to gift 145 books to 6 elementary classrooms between 2 schools. This year, because we have our hearts set out to gift our books to more children, we are spreading the word to a larger audience... YOU!
Our 2022 Goal List Is Below and includes three elementary schools, two public housing developments, and one local community organization.
