Cradles to Crayons is actively building their library with Kids Of Color books!
C2C provides children living in poverty with the essential items they need free of charge to thrive at home, at school and at play. We do this by connecting communities that have resources with those that need resources.
Books are an essential item supplied in every order C2C distributes and over 85% of those orders are to children and families of color. Even though diversity in book publishing has increased slightly, we need your help in providing more books featuring diversity so that children of color can see themselves in the books they read.
Here’s how you can help today!
- Help fill our library:
- Order a child’s book direct from our Wish List Here! Books will be shipped directly to Cradles to Crayons.
