Helping Unite Giving Souls
Mission: To support underprivileged children with the resources to share a lifelong love for learning, reading and creativity.
At Give More HUGS we:
Believe that the best way to make an impact on the future of education is to empower students to help students.
Train and mentor students from middle schoool through college to become leaders in their local communities through our Ambassador Program. They create and lead events that solicit donations of books, school supplies and funds to support children in under-funded Title 1 Schools. They learn how to network, how to coordinate an event, and how to enroll volunteers. Our Ambassadors then lead events where they:
- Give books to kids who otherwise would not have books of their own. Each book has a handwritten inspirational message from volunteers who share their love of reading through read aloud events.
- Give backpacks full of new school supplies to children at the beginning of the school year so they start off with the tools they need to be successful.
Together, we ensure that all children have access to the books and school supplies they need to promote early literacy and a lifelong love of learning. Our model brings communities together and develops the next generation of compassionate leaders.
Your donation today will help us reach even more children in need.

We live for the moment at the end of a BookShare event where we give a child a book and they say, “It’s mine to keep, really?” Your donation helps us create more of those moments. Thank you for your support!
