Crisis: Children Without Books

$6,807 of $10,000 goal

Raised by 38 people in 41 months





Gift Children Books, Inc., a 501(c)(3) corporation, provides free books to children who need them.  Our fundraising efforts are lofty because  millions of children do not have home libraries and in order to achieve in school, they must improve literacy. 

Children are facing a crisis - living in homes without books.     


THE NEED IS GREAT
Pictured on the balcony reading are three  siblings and future bloggers, Quest, 10, Journey, 9, and Zinan, 6.  Our goal is for each sibling and all other children to receive personal collections of high quality books.  

People like you can collectively solve this heartbreaking crisis to make reading accessible to all children.  

Your donation will purchase books and provide opportunities for children to become who they were meant to be. 

GIFT CHILDREN BOOKS, INC.:
We envision that regardless of dire financial circumstances, children will have well stocked home libraries.

Since 2011, we have distributed over 60,000 books to help children improve literacy and build home libraries.   

IMPACT:
For nearly 6 years, parents have been reporting that their children are reading more regularly since receiving free books.  

We've implemented an early readiness metric to measure the impact of providing books on a regular basis to 10% student enrollment at Booker T. Washington Child Development Center, in Phoenix.  

Will you join us in gifting Quest, Journey, Zinan and other children with the ability to simply remove an appropriate age book from a book shelf at home and read?
