We Need Diverse Books’ (WNDB) Fall Fundraiser is undeway! The goal is to collect $50.00 for the WNDB in the Classroom program, which provides free diverse books to low-income schools.

Since 2014 they’ve donated nearly 12,000 books across 32 states, and with your help they’ll be able to give thousands more.

WNDB is offering swag for your donations, but even more important : they’re getting books to children who need them.

The WNDB Team:
Ellen Oh, CEO & President
Dhonielle Clayton, Chief Operation Officer
Judy Schricker , Chief Financial Officer

Mission:
“We Need Diverse Books is a 501(c)(3) non-profit and a grassroots organization of children’s book lovers that advocates essential changes in the publishing industry. Our aim is to help produce and promote literature that reflects and honors the lives of all young people. The mission of this particular project is to bring diverse books and authors into economically disadvantaged schools.”
