A SUMMER OF BOOKS TO CHILDREN

Working with our partners at Youth Policy Institute we will be bringing 8 book boxes to the community at San Fernando Gardens .  We installed 6 of the boxes on Saturday August 2nd.  Along with the boxes filled with new books we will also be giving away more books to children in that community.   The themes are Monsters Inc, The Incredibles, Toy Story, Up, Wall-E and Promise Scholars.  The event was awesome and we had some help from Disney Voluntears as well as some of the youth in the complex.  It was a great day to Be A Book Hero™!

Check out these boxes and some pictures from the event.

JUNE 2019

We loaded up our Mobile Book Depot (trailer) and headed to Sacramento to give away 2,000 books and to install 3 book boxes!   We did it in less than 3 days – because it’s all about getting books to kids!

  

We sorted through 2 more pallets of books to get them ready to go. Check out a quick video showing the pallets being sorted:

We held our first SUMMER SLIDE book contest and 10 lucky winners each receive 12 Disney 5-Minute Story Books.  Thanks to everyone who participated and CONGRATS to the winners.

Some of those books went immediately to the El Cariso Head Start school in Sylmar for their Space inspired book box.  This was another partnership with Kiwanis Literacy Club of Southern California for Kiwanis LaCanada AM.  The kids were so excited to get a book check our the video of the unveiling:

It’s All About Getting Books to Children in Need

After another successful Literacy Gala with our partner Kiwanis Literacy Club of So Cal, it is time to get to distributing books to children in our communities. The team has been busy unloading pallets, organizing books, labeling books and getting books out to our various sponsors.  We handed off 2,000 books to the Redlands Police Department and have 4 distributions happening in the next couple of weeks with YWCA of Glendale, Variety the Children’s Charity of So Cal, Burbank Sunrise Rotary and Fenton Charter Schools.

We are now over 110,000 books distributed to children in need and working to break 200,000 this year.  Check out

 

A Gift of Books  

What an amazing day for Seeding Book Deserts™. We were privileged to be invited by the team at First Book to their book distribution in Los Angeles today. This was in partnership with Disney Books. These amazing people gave away 40,000 brand new books today. When the event was over, we loaded up (with the help of some amazing Disney VoluntEars) our Be A Book Hero™ trailer with thousands of brand new books to be given away as a part of our Be A Book Hero project to children throughout Los Angeles. Truly thankful and humbled by the generosity!

The team at First Book has supported our efforts since it was just a dream – thanks for believing in us!
