Give a Million

A Million Books for Kids in Need This Holiday Season
$1 Million for 1 Million Books for Kids in Need
First Book is working to make $1 million worth of wishes come true this holiday season.

First Book’s network of more than 450,000 educators, librarians, providers and others who work specifically with children in need sent us their ‘book wishes’–their wish for what they would like give their kids this holiday season. With $1 million, we’ll be able to grant 1 million books’ worth of wishes, bringing books to kids in need through the educators that support them every day.

“For many kids, it will be the first book they have ever owned, or the only gift they will receive during the holidays. The sense of self-esteem that comes, and the fact that it also furthers their academic possibilities, makes the gift of a book invaluable.” Kyle Zimmer, president, CEO, and co-founder of First Book
