Make-A-Wish has partnered with My First Reading Club, a children’s book subscription box, in a joint effort to ignite imagination and creativity in children through early reading. Subscriptions for the My First Reading Club Wish Box will be sold exclusively on Amazon starting Oct. 26, and $5 from each subscription will be donated back to Make-A-Wish. The national partnership will help raise critical funds to continue to grant life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses – many of whom credit their wish with helping them overcome their illness.
“Books give children the tools they need to set their imagination free, much like the wish journey does for children battling a critical illness,” said Richard K. Davis, president and CEO, Make-A-Wish America. “My First Reading Club and Make-A-Wish have the common focus of helping children create life-changing experiences through boundless curiosity, hope, and healing that can shape their future.”
The uniquely branded and colorful box consists of a mix of high-quality books, including an activity book to inspire and entertain children of all ages. The subscription will also include a surprise gift each month and a wish story for an opportunity to learn more about Make-A-Wish – providing parents and caregivers with ways to engage and promote excitement about reading while giving back through the power of a wish.
“My First Reading Club is thrilled to expand our mission of improving childhood literacy in the United States through our partnership with Make-A-Wish,” said Danny Schaefer, Founder and CEO of My First Reading Club. “Children receiving boxes will enjoy reading fantastic books and know that with each box, they are also helping grant life-changing wishes to children with critical illnesses when they need it most.”
My First Reading Club is for children ages from newborn to 12 years old. All books in the My First Reading Club Wish Box will be shipped the first week of each month.
