We’re celebrating our 19th birthday at First Book this week, and to mark the occasion, our friends at Disney Publishing Worldwide have generously agreed to donate one brand-new book for each new follower we gain online. Those books will go to schools and programs serving kids from low-income neighborhoods across the country.
Being large-hearted, they are counting the followers we already have, so those of you who already follow First Book on Facebook, Twitter and Tumblr have done your part. But you can do more by forwarding this to your friends.
So, let’s do the math … as of this morning we have 6,743 fans on our Facebook page, 6,423 followers of our Twitter feed, and 10 followers on our Tumblr page (that one’s pretty new), which adds up to 13,176 new books. Woot!
But we know the scope of the problem – 30 million kids living in low-income neighborhoods in the U.S. alone, with severely limited access to books – and 13,176 books is barely a drop in the bucket. So spread the word and help us fill that bucket faster.
