We are immensely grateful for the incredible support we received this #GivingTuesday. Just a few days into our 2016 fundraiser and we are halfway to our goal! But we still have a long way to go. The funds we raise now will allow us to continue our operations throughout the year.
What are your donations used for?
Simple: Donations purchase high-quality children's books and establish free libraries in low-income health clinics, homeless shelters, and other community organizations. We are particularly committed to purchasing books with characters from diverse cultural backgrounds so that all children see themselves reflected in the books they read. Rx for Reading has zero overhead and no paid employees. 100% of donations go directly to support reading for kids and families in Detroit.
Your dollar goes farther!
Rx for Reading is lucky to be a literacy partner with both First Book and Barefoot Books, allowing us to purchase brand new children's books for a fraction of the retail cost. This is why your $25 donation can purchase 10 brand new books for kids (and sometimes more)!
Help us spread the word.
People want to have a positive impact in this world, but sometimes we don't know how to start. Please tell your friends and family that a donation to Rx for Reading, however small or large, has an immediate impact on the children who will be our next generation of readers and leaders in Detroit. And thank you, from the bottom of our hearts, for your support!
