7,000 kids served in 4 years - Thank You!



In 2016 we expanded our program to serve every Minneapolis Public School with at least 50% of kids on free or reduced lunch. That ended up being 28 schools with 2,000 1st graders who bought 20,000 books - all thanks to supporters like you! 

In 2017, we served 1st and 2nd graders at 30 Minneapolis schools, reaching about 4,000 kids.

We plan to serve about 5,500 Minneapolis Public School kids in 2018, with the possibility of entering other school districts. To get over 55,000 books to 5,500 kids this year, we'll need to raise about $250,000. 

Every dollar helps!
