Where Your Money Goes

A Princess's job is to help othersMilk+Bookies wants all kids to experience the joys of giving, receiving and reading. We NEVER want our program to be cost-prohibitive to anyone.

Monies raised help us customize book-raisers for schools and communities in low-income areas across the country. Your donation will get the Bookies Box toolkit and all of our support resources to institutions without any programming budgets.

Giving high-poverty areas the tools to create their own book-raiser does three important things:

  1. Gives children the exposure to giving and service;
  2. Raises books for their own school, group or community center, which leads to better literacy skills;
  3. Brings them a pre-packaged activity that teachers and parents don’t have to create.

$100: Supplies a classroom (in a low income district) or community center with enough materials and resources to host their own Milk+Bookies book-raiser with our support.

$250: Sponsors a classroom’s Leaders + Readers Book Drive that helps to flood underserved Los Angeles schools with books.

$500: Sponsor a Choose + Keep book-fair at an underserved Los Angeles school or community organization where each child can “shop” for their very own book to take home to keep.

$1000: Sponsor one school’s Leaders + Readers book drive. Receive Storyteller sponsor recognition on the M + B website and acknowledgement in the M + B annual newsletter.

$2500: Sponsor two school’s Leaders + Readers book drives. Receive Contributing Editor sponsor recognition on the M + B website, acknowledgement in the M + B annual newsletter, and spotlights on M + B social media platforms.


Your donation also ensures that our Leaders + Readers Program continues to get books directly into the hands of EVERY underserved child in Los Angeles schools and organizations. Our team works directly with students, teachers, and parents to ensure that with this program, every $1 donation is turned into ONE BOOK for a child.

With $10,000, we can complete a K – 6 elementary school with books so that each and every student will be taking home books to build their own home libraries (from our “CHOOSE + KEEP” book fair), fill their classroom libraries, and restock their existing school library. Help us flood schools and organizations throughout Los Angeles with books!
