Did you know that nearly two-thirds of low-income families do not own any books? Across the nation, more and more libraries have closed their doors, while many libraries lack adequate reading materials. Print books are just as important today as they were one hundred years ago. A recent study revealed that when it comes to a child's academic performance, the number of print books in the home is as important as a parent's educational level.
That's why GreaterGood is donating books to U.S. based charities to give to children for their home libraries!
Make your donation of $5 or more an ongoing gift by checking the "Make this a Monthly Gift" box before adding it to your cart, and you will help children receive books each and every month.
Books inform and entertain, often at the same time. Ensuring a child has access to books in their homes is associated with positive behavioral, educational, and psychological outcomes. Your donation to this book program will help children across the country learn and succeed. With the help of our partners, we will transport high quality books to where they are needed most. Help a child love to read and succeed!
