Beluga Books boosts literacy and imagination by providing new books to hospitalized children. Reading can replace copious amounts of television, increase creativity, and provide a coping mechanism. During the hospitalized months, a child’s literacy rate can drop rapidly making the transition into school extremely difficult and creating a long-lasting effect on their education. Our project is partnering with USD Changemaker Hub through the Social Corps with a goal to fundraise $1,500 to buy new books for Rady Children's Hospital.
For every $5-10 given, a child is given a brand new book. For every $100, ten children are positively impacted! You can partner with us and bring joy to these children this holiday season.
Every book provided will go to a child in need at Rady's. Hospitalized children cannot attend school, as a result, their literacy rates are likely to drop. These books are not only encouraging reading, but also inspiring imagination and motivation! Each book must be brand new in order to limit the spreading of germs.
