Join Book Drive for Kids’ Share A Book Initiative!
April 23rd is World Book Day. What better way to celebrate than to ensure all children have books in their homes! In the DFW area, there are more than 630,000 economically disadvantaged children with few, if any, books in their homes. Whether it’s due to financial hardship, speaking a language other than English, or the challenges presented by recent COVID school closures, many children are without the resources they need to learn how to read and succeed in school. By encouraging reading for fun, children strengthen reading skills, build self-confidence, tap into their imagination, and learn about the people and world around them. These opportunities are lost when a child lacks access to books.
Flower Mound resident Mehgan DeProspero and her daughter Samantha were the FIRST Share-A-Book Day leaders during last year’s initiative. “It made my heart glad when Sammy heard about your book fairs, she jumped right up to find books she could donate,” Mehgan said. They sent an email to friends and neighbors and collected 76 gently-used books and monetary donations which were then shared with local children during a Book Drive for Kids Free Book Fair.
Imagine the impact if YOU joined with 100 other people to Share-A-Book! That would be SOOO many books! Help us meet our goal of 100 Share-A-Book Day leaders.
Together we can make a difference, one book at a time. Check out the Share A Book Initiative.
We can be the change we want to see in the world….simply by sharing a book.
