Bring a Book, Buy a Book

Join in to support literacy, teach children the value of philanthropy, and enjoy some healthy competition!

Most of us take for granted the simple escape into a great book. But many kids throughout Ethiopia learn to read without ever holding a book. Ethiopia Reads needs your help raising $50,000 so we can continue to plant libraries and put books in the hands of kids. We are looking for 50 schools to participate in the Bring A Book Buy A Book (BABBAB) fundraising competition next fall. The school that raises the most money for Ethiopia Reads will win an on-site author visit from Jane Kurtz and Chris Kurtz! But there is no minimum or maximum you need to raise. We will be happy with $50 or $5,000!

BABBAB is an easy-to-run and simple fundraising concept that encourages reading by having students purchase each other’s gently used books for one dollar each. Proceeds go to Ethiopia Reads. The fundraiser is supplemented by age-appropriate curriculum, reading materials and art projects.

Bring A Book Buy A Book teaches your kids about global awareness, social service and reinforces a love of reading! Best of all, it’s a really easy model to implement and run.
