We have got to hand it to two of ReadThis’ youngest members, Beckett and his friend, Eli, who threw a joint birthday party and asked their friends to bring books to donate to a public school in New York that needed them. ReadThis directed them to P.S. 46, Edward Blum school in Fort Greene, which has a nice new library, but serves one of the lowest income communities and is greatly in need of books, particularly nonfiction.
Over 50 books were collected — a great gift to the school. Thanks too to Beckett’s mother, Lindsay, who delivered the books to the school.
If anyone else would like to hold a birthday book party and donate books to a school, hospital, or literacy center in need, please get in touch with ReadThis at firstname.lastname@example.org.
