Celebrate Children Book World’s 35th Anniversary with a donation to Readers & Writers Rock!, which provides free new books to underserved children throughout Los Angeles County.
DOLLAR FOR DOLLAR GIFT MATCH CHALLENGE
Readers & Writers Rock is funded by community donations. In honor of Children’s Book World’s 35th anniversary and in appreciation of our store staff, an anonymous donor and longtime friend of Children’s Book World has offered a GENEROUS $5,000 MATCHING GRANT, DOUBLING YOUR IMPACT BY MATCHING DOLLAR TO DOLLAR - UP TO $5000 TOTAL - DONATIONS RECEIVED BY DECEMBER 31, 2021.
We are asking for donations to help grow the outreach of our nonprofit, Readers & Writers Rock! Children’s Book World is committed to challenging inequity and providing books and author experiences to underserved children. Every dollar you donate will go towards getting a new book into a child’s hands and home.
Readers & Writers Rock! strives to bring multicultural author visits to schools with underserved children, with each child attending receiving a copy of the author’s book. We hear repeatedly from children and their teachers that the students have never met an author before, let alone an author that “looks like them” and how meaningful it is. We get feedback from teachers and principals at the schools telling us how these author visits motivate their students to read and write and how strong the impact of these positive role models is for their students. For some students, the book they receive will be the first they’ve ever owned.
We are looking for individuals and organizations to help us get as many books as possible to underserved children for stellar author events coming this fall (listed below) and for future events.
Donations of all amounts will be greatly appreciated.
