Help Us Open Our Doors to More Children

Your past support has made our NYC Reading Center a magical, safe place for over 17,000 children living in unstable environments. But thousands more are waiting to visit….

We need your help to welcome them.

In the past year alone, over 3,000 volunteers have shared stories and caring connections with children at our NYC Reading Center. But the waitlist of children has grown exponentially since we opened our doors five years ago.

We simply don’t have the space to meet the need.

At our May gala, we shared our vision for expanding our NYC home when we announced the launch of a new campaign, “LOVE is the Best Light to Read In.” Our goal is to raise $200,000 by August 31st, but we’re not there yet.

Will you help us meet our goal? Your donation will help us renovate our Reading Center, expand programming, and share more books, pajamas, and love.
