When Maria was 8 years old, she learned how many kids throughout the world don't own a single book. As an avid reader, Maria became determined to change that! Since 2009, Read Indeed has gathered and gifted more than 3.3 MILLION books to needy kids. Our organization continues to work hard—organizing book drives, sorting, counting and distributing books to those that need them. As Maria says, she wants to "make a world a better place, one book at a time." The donations Read Indeed receives are used to purchase brand new books for children in need.
