Grump Trip ImageOur family is traveling across America in an RV.  Kelly (11) and Anton (8) will be visiting schools and educational programs across America to donate books and raise awareness about the need for age appropriate books for low-income children. 

Did you know …

  • The lowest income kids in America don’t have a single age-appropriate book in their home. Neither their families nor their schools can afford to purchase books at retail prices.
  • In some of the poorest neighborhoods, there is only one age-appropriate book for every 300 kids.  In comparison, kids in well-off neighborhoods have access to 13 books each.
  • 80% of programs targeting low-income kids report they don’t have any books.

If you believe that every child deserves to have a quality education, one that is only possible with a healthy supply of books, please contribute today. At just $2.50 per book, every $10 you donate will buy four books. Imagine what a difference those books can make for a child who does not have access to books! 

We will be visiting six programs across America.  Our goal is to raise enough for at least 1,000 books for each place.  Please help us meet our $15,000 goal!

97% of donations provide new books for children in need. Print and mail form
