Help us donate our books to kids in need

We'd like to get our books into the hands of more kids in underserved communities so we're undertaking a month-long fundraising campaign with First Book, which promotes literacy by making age-appropriate books and resources available to more children. Our goal is to donate a minimum of 500 copies of Sprig the Rescue Pig and Gwen the Rescue Hen

Low literacy rates continue to be a problem in the United States, particularly for low-income households. Consider the following:

  • In middle-income neighborhoods the ratio of books per child is 13 to one; in low-income neighborhoods, the ratio is one book for every 830 children. 

  • Children growing up in homes without books are on average three years behind kids in homes with lots of books, even when controlled for other key factors, such as income and parents' education.

  • Creating a steady stream of new, age-appropriate books has been shown to nearly triple interest in reading within months. 

  • One in four children in America grow up without learning how to read. 

Thank you for helping us support this good cause.
