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 Carrying Hope, Bookspring, and Higher Learning, 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.
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.Carrying Hope Wish List
