Who we are

Founded in 2004 by Meredith Alexander, a mother of two sons who resides in Los Angeles, Milk + Bookies was created to promote two very important and worthwhile efforts: CHILDREN'S LITERACY and SERVICE LEARNING. At Milk + Bookies Book-Raiser events, boys and girls are provided the opportunity to select and inscribe books that are then donated to their peers who do not have access to books of their own.

What we are all about

Milk + Bookies helps kids put together "Book-Raiser" events where they collect books for other children in need in their community. Hosting an event is easy! Check out our Book-Raiser Activity (listed here on Project Giving Kids) or visit our website for more details on how to host a Book-Raiser in your community. By collecting books for children who might not otherwise have access to books of their own, you will help spread and share the gift of reading with other kids!
