This pledge closed about 1 month ago
Take the Book People Unite pledge and declare your belief in the transformative power of books, especially for young minds. 2 out of 3 kids in poverty in the U.S. don't have a book to call their own. Sadly, a child without books starts out behind and is likely to stay behind.
Imagine an America where every child has books to keep and cherish. Where a greater number of students earn diplomas. Where our workforce is larger, smarter and more innovative. Where all communities are thriving.
Your pledge will help this vision become a reality.
With 16 million children currently living in poverty, the time has come for Book People nationwide to unite with Reading Is Fundamental, America's largest children's literacy nonprofit, to raise awareness about children's literacy issues.
Take the pledge and help get books in the hand of kids who need them most.
