Books for Babes Annual Fundraiser - 2023

Donation protected
By the end of 2022 we were able to raise over $3,500 which funded the distribution of more than 1,100 books to over 460 underprivileged children, families, and in-need youth organizations!

Due to the incredible impact that #Books4Babes had the last THREE holiday seasons, we are SO EXCITED to keep the momentum of kindness & unconditional love going in 2023! <3

Storytelling is the greatest form of communication. Lessons are taught through story and the inspiration of well-written books. Add pictures, colors and even pop-up interactions, and watch how many children’s imaginations flourish!

For anyone who knows Alan & I well, you know that books hold a very special place in our heart. They are one of the key tools by which we’ve become so educated and inspired as adults.

We are so blessed, but that’s only because of the incredible educational opportunities we both had growing up.

That’s why it’s our mission to raise $1,100 this year. We can do it!!!

This way we can put inspiring books in the hands of twice as many young, underprivileged children & families this time.

It is our hope that with these funds, we can inject a much-needed inspiring source of HOPE & CARING into the lives of those less fortunate & hungry for inspiration.

Like last year, the books will be distributed in boxes to families, organizations, and schools with a personally hand-written note from Alan & I. Volunteers from all over have already asked to get involved - from hand-painting book marks to helping eco-distribute the books, and we couldn't be more excited to join forces this year with so many incredible human beings to maximize this fundraiser's impact.

We will be taking donations up until Dec 20th to ensure that we have the books purchased, wrapped, and distributed before Christmas Eve.

Imagine being a child so used to going without unexpectedly finding a beautifully wrapped gift on Christmas morning.

If you’re reading this, it would mean the world to us if you'd contribute. This initiative is meant to wrap our underprivileged youth in love & warmth on Christmas.

If these kids learn through experience that strangers care about them and their future, who knows what that’ll spark!!

Please join us in making a real difference this holiday season. Big or small, every little bit counts. Thank you!!!

With love & gratitude,
Emilia & Alan
