Looking for a way to give the gift of Literacy to a child in need?

You can make a designated donation to Reading On My Mind to be used towards purchasing children's books through a non profit book distribution called First Book 

www.firstbooks.org 

Last year we purchased over 450 from this company to be given out at area elementary schools. As a nonprofit we qualify to receive the books for free but must pay for the shipping which averages out between .45 - .65 cents a book. we love this because it insures every child receives all the same brand new book! 

For more information on making a monetary donation use the Contact Tab or email us at readingonmymind@gmail.com
