Milk + Bookies rides again! Our 2nd Annual Bike for Bookies event will take place on August 28th @2pm. Join us for a fun filled, calorie burning day at the Beverly Hills SoulCycle Studio to help support our Leaders + Readers program! 

So far we have raised over 120,000 books and impacted 50 LA area schools and counting!! Come ride with us to help raise funds for our Leaders + Readers Program, getting kids in Title 1 schools in LA much needed books to support learning and academic excellence!

With our Leaders + Readers Program, every $1 = 1 book for a deserving child! With your help, we can get even more books into schools this fall and give every student in LA an even playing field.

Madewell Gives Back with Milk + Bookies

This week’s Book-Raiser Spotlight goes to our friends at Madewell!

The amazing team at Madewell put together a stellar Milk + Bookies book-raiser at their Costa Mesa / South Coast Plaza store on May 29th. They provided guests with champagne and delicious cookies from Milk Jar to enjoy and, for everyone who brought in books, they received 20% off a purchase of $125+ AND a free Madewell tote! The folks at Madewell were able to raise over 42 books which will be donated to Olive Crest, an organization focused on preventing and treating child abuse in Orange County.tumblr_m2ucafR1PO1qzdg78image001

TOTAL BOOKS RAISED: 42

DONATED TO: OLIVE CREST

We are so happy to have partnered with Madewell to give so many fantastic books to kids who need them most! Madewell is one special company who not only makes the BEST products, but also gives back to their community! Madewell also supports initiatives that protect the environment and responsible sourcing.
