Reading Heart is a nonprofit, 501(c)(3) book donation program dedicated to serving children in hospitals and children in areas with limited access to books. Danay started Reading Heart at the age of eight because she wanted to share her passion for reading and the joy of escaping in a good book with other children. An avid book reader and advocate for education, Danay wants to spread the joy of reading and improve literacy not only in our community but also across the country.
"I was actually thinking about people who were less fortunate and people in hospitals because they get bored," says Danay. "Our donations can help kids in hospitals and the less fortunate."
To fulfill our goal of helping hospitalized children have free books to read, we have created the Reading Shelves Program. These easy to sanitize, portable reading shelves will be placed in easy access locations throughout hospitals and stocked with free books.
Our Book Tables are one of the main tools used when we hand out free books.
