The difference between success and struggle can come down to the simplest of things. For many of us, the idea of a home without books, or a neighborhood without a library, seems unimaginable.
For those who can't afford or even gain access to books, it's like someone's cutting off their educational oxygen. Books are a cornerstone for learning, and hardly a luxury, but for many, the idea of owning or even borrowing books regularly is nothing but a dream.
It shouldn't have to be this way, especially for young kids whose minds are thirsting for knowledge and adventure.
Thanks to wonderful organizations like Books for Kids, it isn't that way for hundreds of children anymore.
Books for Kids creates libraries within existing children's centers, supplying everything from books to kid-friendly furniture, creating an environment that nurtures young children and puts them on a path to success. The organization also collects and distributes books to other charitable groups, so the power of books can reach as far and wide as possible.
