Tales of a Donation

Most days the problems of the world feel very large, and our ability to solve them so very small.

“What could $10 possibly do?”

With zero overhead, Rx for Reading uses 100% of donations to purchase new books and build free community libraries. 

This is what we purchased with a recent $10.00 donation:
