How You Can Help In Mere Seconds — Every Day

The Literacy Site provides a feel-good way to help promote awareness of the importance of books in the home as a key indicator of a child's literacy — through easy and quick online activities.

With a simple, daily click of the "Click Here to Give - it's FREE" button at The Literacy Site, visitors help provide free books to children in need. Visitors pay nothing. The distribution of these books are paid for by our site sponsors and accomplished through our charitable partners, First Books and Room to Read.

Please remember to click every day to help children in need get free books in the home, and to give hope to future generations. Every click counts in the fight for literacy.

You Can Help Even More

In addition to clicking the "Click Here to Give - it's FREE" button, visitors can help more children in need get free books by shopping in The Literacy Site store. With each item purchased, shoppers generate funds that bring free books to more children. The store offers a wide array of items to show your support.

The Literacy Site is dedicated to funding free books for children.

On average, over 70,000 individuals from around the world visit the site each day to click the "Click Here to Give - it's FREE" button. To date, more than 55 million visitors have helped provide more than a million books to children who need them the most.

Access to books is essential to reading development. Yet 61 percent of low-income families in the U.S. have no books for children in their homes. Over 80 percent of childcare centers serving low-income children lack age-appropriate books and other print materials. By providing children from low-income families with books that they can take home and keep, together we target the only variable that correlates significantly with reading scores: the number of books in the home. Worldwide, there are more than 770 million illiterate adults in the world, two-thirds of whom are women and girls. In addition, there are over 100 million children not currently enrolled in primary school and millions of others not currently in secondary school. Education is a lifelong gift that empowers people to ultimately improve socioeconomic conditions for their families, communities, countries, and future generations. Through the opportunities that only an education can provide, we can break the cycle of poverty, one child at a time.
