Spread the love of reading with BookPeople's Giving Tree!

BookPeople's annual Giving Tree puts books in the hands of organizations that work to keep deserving Austin kids reading all year long. This year's tree benefits nonprofits BookSpring and Carrying Hope, organizations that encourage literacy in Texas communities in need.

Make a monetary donation below or select a book from one of their wishlists and mention that you'd like it to be donated in the comments field at checkout.

About Carrying Hope

Carrying Hope provides Hope Packs filled with comfort items and essentials to children entering the foster care system in Central Texas. Hope Packs make a difficult transition brighter for children and the foster families caring for them. The book inside each Hope Pack may be the first book a child has ever received. Your gift brings inspiration, a sense of wonder, and the message that each child is special and loved.


About BookSpring

BookSpring is the only Central Texas organization focusing on building literacy skills and the motivation to read through increasing home libraries and reading aloud activities for children. With over 45 years of experience, BookSpring has taken the best practices of their founding programs and adapted them to the special needs of Central Texas low-income families. Your donated books go to BookSpring to use for their storytimes, activities, and to distribute to children at high-need schools in the Austin area.
