Even though there is still plenty of uncertainty hovering in the back of our minds, there is one thing we DO KNOW FOR SURE: that giving back hasn’t been canceled.
On December 1, 2020, Multicultural Children’s Book Day will participate (for the first time ever!) in #GivingTuesday!
#GivingTuesday is an opportunity for people around the world to stand together in unity while also supporting a cause that is near-and-dear to their hearts.
GivingTuesday is an opportunity for people around the world to stand together in unity—to use their individual power of generosity to remain connected and heal.
This Giving Tuesday, MCBD wants to rally our supporters, reviewers, authors, and sponsors to help us help teachers by supporting our
Free Diverse Books for Classrooms and Teachers Project.
We have hundreds of schools on our FREE Diverse Books for Classrooms Sign-up waiting patiently for a multicultural YA, chapter, or picture book. MCBD could use some help with postage and handling costs to fulfill these requests and get a brand new book into the hands of young readers.
Multicultural Children’s Book Day believes that each of us has the power to create, help, heal, build new kinds of connections with our communities, classrooms, and families with BOOKS. Our mission is to not only raise awareness for the kid’s books that celebrate diversity but to get more of these books into classrooms and libraries.
Here’s how you can help. #GivingTuesday
