You have the power to change a child’s life by doing what you love.
By hosting First Book campaigns, hundreds of people have provided books and resources to children in need.
They’ve asked friend and family to make donations to their campaign instead of purchasing birthday gifts. Others have thrown block parties or hosted reading celebrations in their local libraries to raise funds. Two mighty champions tackled more than 2,000 miles of hiking trails, hoping to put a book in a child’s hand for each mile they complete.
And when they reach their fundraising goals, great things happen. Schools are able to stock their libraries. Summer programs have books for their students to read while school is out. Kids are introduced to stories that will stay with them for a lifetime.
When you start a campaign with First Book you can raise money to provide books for your school or program, for kids in your community or anywhere in the country. Become a champion for kids in need today.
