Project Open Books is delighted to announce that we have been able to donate more than 500 books to folks in twenty-seven states and four countries! This is equivalent to over $7,400!
None of this could have been possible without the generous support of individual donors who believe in our mission to improve and promote access to age-appropriate LGBTQIA+ books and stories. To date, we have received over 100 individual contributions from people living all over the United States and from several small businesses operating in Connecticut and Florida. Because of this fantastic support, we have met our current demand and responded to all of our incoming requests.
As we enter the fall season, we expect the number of requests to increase, and we eagerly await the day when we will be able to announce that we’ve donated 600 books! To help us continue this amazing work, we’ve created an option on our website for individuals to make a recurring donation. Even a small recurring donation of $10 per month will help us offset our operating expenses, and a donation of $25 will help us fulfill one book request per month, including shipping and handling costs.
Let’s continue to achieve our goal and provide the gift of a book to create more inclusive spaces, whether in a home, a classroom, an office, or a gathering place. Those of us at Project Open Books feel incredibly grateful for your continued support. From all of us here at the Project, we thank you!
