2020 READ TO LEAD BOOK DRIVE
In honor of Book Lovers Day (August 9th) we're hosting our very first Read to Lead Book Drive! Our goal is to collect at least 100 books for 100 children ages 3-17. 50% of the books collected will be sent to children across the nation in an effort to promote literacy through summer reading, while the other 50% will be donated to our national and international partners. Sharing our stories through literature make up the DNA of ByBlkWomen. Through your support and partnerships, we can positively impact the narrative of literacy in our communities.
Thank you to everyone who participated, donated and supported our efforts!
We are truly grateful!

Thanks to your support, as of August 3rd, we have collected 113 books! We are sending books directly yo their new owners (August 2-8) and the remaining books (including books that arrive after our set dates) will be sent to our national and international reading partners.
Due to current global affairs, we are only able to send the individual books to homes across the United States on a first come, first served basis.
Registration is now closed to receive a free book. We encourage you to visit community libraries and platforms investing in promoting diversity in literature for our minis and young adults.
