We at Project Open Books are delighted to announce that we have been able to donate more than 400 books to twenty states and four countries!
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 amazing support, we have been able to meet our current demand and respond to all of our incoming requests.
As we look ahead toward the start of a new school year, 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 500 books! In order 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 that be in a home, a classroom, an office, or in a place of gathering. 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!
