"So inspired that we wanted to do more..."

After a 2007 visit to our Amazon Library and meeting Nancy Dunn, its director at the time, seven high school students from Woodland, California started a nonprofit organization called R.E.A.C.H. 4 Books. (That stands for "Reading in Every Amazon Child's Home.") Their purpose has been to promote literacy by donating books in Spanish to the children in the rainforest through the Library. They faithfully raised money for several years and sent a total of 4000 books. Now the project is in need of rejuvenation, and the youngest member of the group is taking over.
At the helm today is Tom Payne. “I became a part of R.E.A.C.H. 4 Books when we went down to Peru when I was in third grade and we brought down books and school supplies to the schools we were visiting. When we came back from the trip, we were so inspired that we wanted to do more to help these children, so we decided to start this non-profit. As the youngest of the founding members, I am the last active member as the others have moved on to college and adulthood, and so my goal is to continue the good works of R.E.A.C.H. 4 Books. My plan is to continue to send books, financially support the library, and hopefully adopt-a-school in the months/years to come.

Support Adopt-A-School 2015

We still need your financial support for this year's school supplies deliveries. Like Tom and R.E.A.C.H. 4 Books, please consider adopting a school or schools, sponsoring individual school children, or making a general donation to Adopt-A-School.
