The innovative, crucial and effective work we do is made possible by the influx of community support we receive. And for that, we and the children we serve are infinitely grateful. But we want more children, teachers, families and community members to be that grateful too. The time has come to grow our impact – improving MORE lives by instilling a life-long love of reading in MORE children with MORE books.

Our Progress

70%

To drive that growth, we need more resources. More funds, more time and more books. Of course, none of those three can succeed without the other.

Our path to get there is the One Million Books Revolution. It’s our charge to ourselves and to our sponsors to drive forward to the goal of distributing a million books by the end of 2018.

The One Million Books Revolution is the umbrella for several key objectives, all validated by PricewaterhouseCoopers in its scalability evaluation:

  • Increase funding through strategic partnerships
  • Increase Magic Book Party schools from five to 30
  • Increase employee headcount to support additional needs as we scale
  • Increase book donations and volunteers
  • Increase proactive marketing presence to drive fundraising, book donations and volunteer engagement

You can be an integral part of the One Million Books Revolution – contributing to the enrichment of children’s lives by instilling a love of learning, while also engaging your own team around a cause that benefits the entire Charlotte community. Our One Million Books Revolution sponsors receive access to custom corporate team building events, leveraging the programs and operations we have in place for book drives, warehouse volunteering, donation events and more. Our team will work with you to design the right event for your goals and team dynamics – and we promise you’ll have fun doing it.
