How far has reading carried you in your career?
Writers, publishers, booksellers, librarians and teachers – these are the obvious champions of words. However, when you ask other professionals what lead them to think they could succeed as a doctor, lawyer, or Olympian – it’s actually the same story. They found fiction early. They loved to read. With parents at bedtime. On Saturdays at the library. Once you believe in the unbelievable, dreams can become very real.
If you’re good with words, help a child who isn’t.
Make a $52 donation for our library development and reading programs in St. Lucia, Grenada, Montserrat and Nevis.
Words matter. And they also count.
If 1,930 professionals respond, we’ll raise $100,000 in 24 hours. These funds will help parents and grandparents support the story of their kids’ lives.

What’s the significance of Find 52?
Find 52 was the theme of our first fundraiser. It so happens that if you run all the way around the island of Grenada, you’ll cover 86 kilometres, which is 52 miles.
