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!
Stay tuned for some giveaways soon – be sure and follow and like us on Facebook.

Your donation of $1,250 will sponsor a custom themed book box. These boxes help to get more books to kids in our under served communities.

We are always ready to help with replenishing new books or doing maintenance to keep the library looking great so it can continue to inspire.
