From The Heart

Your Donation Will Provide New Books To From The Heart
From The Heart is dedicated to fostering a love of reading in children living below the poverty line and to giving people an opportunity to get hands-on and face-to-face to experience making a difference. Through our annual HOLIDAY BOOK GIVEAWAY we've placed over 75,000 books into the hands of delighted Head Start children throughout Los Angeles. For most, this is the first book they have ever owned. We give each child a brand new book, chosen especially for them. We also give books to their older and younger brothers and sisters, starting newborns on the path toward a lifetime of enjoying books and encouraging teenagers who are eager to read. From The Heart believes, “When you give a child a book, you give them the world.”

From the Heart is now joining forces with First Book to provide new books to children from low-income families in the Los Angeles area. 100% of the funds donated to this initiative will be used to purchase new books for these children. Gifts are tax-deductible, and every $2.50 donated online will provide a new book to a child in need. Let someone special know you care by making a donation in their honor.

Here are a few of the many books that could be included in this donation.

Hop on Pop     Berenstein Bears     Curious George     The Trumpet Swan     Charlotte's Web
