Give the gift of reading this Holiday Season!

Your Organization Can Help –

Help us put over 5,000 brand new books in the hands of children-in-need this holiday season.  At Storybook Genius Publishing we believe in the power of reading and the opportunities it creates for children of all ages. There is undisputed evidence that children that read at an early age are more likely to graduate high school.   Yet 61% of low-income families have no books at all in their homes.¹  In middle-income neighborhoods the ratio of books per child is 13 to 1, in low-income neighborhoods, the ratio is 1 age-appropriate book for every 300 children.²  Each holiday season thousands of children-in-need wake up with few gifts under the tree, much less a book.  That is where we need your help!

Buy 1, Give 1 Campaign

This Holiday Season we are partnering with not-for-profit organizations, churches, and children’s hospitals across the United States to donate new illustrated children’s books to kids-in-need. The more organizations that participate, the more books we can get in the hands of children this holiday.

  • How Does It Work?  Each participating organization will get a unique donation code that can be shared on it’s website, newsletter, e-mail, or whatever means they deem appropriate.  If you need help, we can assist you in getting the message out to your organization’s network of supporters. Your organization will also be listed on our website as one of the participating organizations so people can select to have their book donated to your organization.  For every book that is purchased from our children’s book site from December 6 – December 13, we will donate a brand new children’s book to your organization that can be given to a child-in-need this holiday season.
  • Is there a cost to participate?  NO – there is zero cost to your organization.  After the Buy 1, Give 1 Campaign ends on December 13, 2015, we will package up the books being donated to your organization and ship them directly to you so that you can distribute them to the children your organization supports.
  • How do you sign-up?  This year’s campaign is about to begin.  We ask that you contact the donation program manager directly at no later than December 1, so that we can get you set-up with your custom donation code.
  • Can I get more information?  Yes.  Feel free to contact the donation program manager directly at  He will get back with you promptly to address any questions you might have about the Buy 1, Give 1 book donation campaign.

You know the people that you serve in your community better than anybody else.  We need your organization’s help this holiday season to make sure we reach our goal of donating over 5,000 books to children-in-need.  Contact today to sign your organization up for the Storybook Genius Publishing 2015 Book Donation Campaign.
