First Book has already distributed more than 5 million books to families affected by natural disasters, from Hurricane Katrina to Hurricane Sandy, to last year's floods in Louisiana. First Book is also listed on Charity Navigator's approved list of highly-rated organizations responding to these storms. First Book is now supporting those working with families in affected areas and temporary shelters--and will continue this work with schools and libraries as they open their doors--to make sure the right books and resources are placed in the right hands at the right time.
@HotDudesReading knows books are powerful things. A new book for a child in these situations offers much more than a new learning opportunity: these books mean stories at bedtime, chances to dream about faraway places, and moments of comfort and normalcy during an otherwise challenging time.
Books change lives, celebrate differences, and build empathy via the transformative power of reading. Please donate now: every $10 will enable First Book to provide 18 new books to children affected by the storms.
