In addition to creative contributions, they raise awareness and funds to support literacy and education in their local communities and across the country.

- Support First Book’s mission to get books and educational resources into the hands of kids in need
- Connect schools and community programs with ongoing access to books and other educational resources
- Be the first to know about exciting opportunities to change lives through First Book
