Together, the AFT and First Book have distributed more than 1million brand-new books to kids in need nationwide. But we are just getting started, and we need your help.
Be part of the AFT's First Book February. This month, we are hosting events in eight cities across the country to give away more than 250,000 books. But no matter where you live, you can still help put books in the hands of kids. By donating today, you can be part of the movement to reclaim the promise of high-quality public education for all children. Just a $10 tax-deductible donation provides four brand-new books for a child or family, and helps in still a love of reading and learning.
97% of donations provide new books for children in need.
$10 can provide 4 books to introduce the joy of reading to a first-time reader.
$25 can provide 10 books to introduce the joy of reading to a first-time reader.
$50 can provide 20 books to give a year of bedtime stories to a family in need.
