We are thankful for you


Happy Thanksgiving,

Since our first full year of programming in 2015, we have donated 5,500 books to children living in the highest poverty neighborhoods in New York City. We are so thankful for your support, and for the opportunity to share your generosity with the children we serve.

We thank you on behalf of 30 children living in temporary family shelters, 800 children living throughout 15 public housing projects, and thousands of other children living below the poverty line in Brooklyn, Manhattan and the Bronx. Because of you, these children have received classic children’s books to build home libraries in 2015 and in 2016. Their parents continue to receive weekly questioning strategies to easily teach vocabulary and reading skills despite limited time and resources. Thank you for giving thousands of children the opportunity to reach their full potential. We appreciate everything you have done to support our cause.

With gratitude,
Lauren Martin
