Reading Heart - Reading Tour

$820 of $10,000 goal

Raised by 13 people in 47 months

Reading Heart is a nonprofit, 501(c)(3) book donation program dedicated to serving children in hospitals and children in areas with limited access to books. Founded on Sept. 1, 2014, Danay started Reading Heart at the age of eight because she wanted to share her passion for reading and the joy of escaping in a good book with other children. An avid book reader and advocate for education, Danay wants to spread the joy of reading and improve literacy not only in our community but also across the country. 

"I was actually thinking about people who were less fortunate and people in hospitals because they get bored," says Danay. "Our donations can help kids in hospitals and the less fortunate."

Every $5 donated to 
Reading Heart = 4 new books

Our goal is to provide every elementary school student in Fresno County with a FREE book then provide books to pediatric units of local hospitals for kids to read during their stay.

Today, it is with a heavy heart that we had a learning experience we were not prepared for. Someone broke into our building and stole all of our equipment needed to move the books. Our mission is to give all the children in under-served areas free books. But sometimes in these areas, people don't realize how damaging their actions can be. We hope that the people who stole from us understand that they are truly hurting the kids.

So because of this unexpected crime we are asking for help from the community. We are a non-profit that works on a very small budget and simply can not replace these things. If you can help us in anyway please let us know.

Also, if you can help us better protect the books, we need your help now!

Any suggestions or ideas are welcome and appreciated.

Thank you,
Danay and the
Reading Heart Family
