One FREE click each day for the next 10 DAYS could help our school win $10,000 in FREE Books!!

We believe a book can change a child’s life forever.

$1,000 is the average amount each teacher spends out-of-pocket yearly to buy books and learning materials for students.

2. Donate

(Psst - if you plan to donate more than $12, maximize the number of adopts by breaking it up into $12 increments/day)

3. Tell everyone

Tell everyone (staff, students, parents and friends) to go to your school’s page and adopt every day - it’s FREE! And remember – the more times they adopt, the better your school’s chance to
