Join the Movement for BookSunday – the New Holiday Where All the Gifts are Books!
The goal is simple – More Books in More Hands to Create More Readers!
We accomplish this, with your help, by making the Second Sunday of March into an annual holiday where you give books to people you care about. And just like Christmas or Valentine’s Day, some people will give one book and some will give a dozen. The important thing is more books get put into more hands!
We know that creating a new holiday is possible.
While it may seem overwhelming to create a new holiday, it’s important to remember that even holidays that seem to have been around forever were often started by one person. So it’s not crazy at all for you to join the movement to create a new holiday celebrating books. If you don’t, who will?!
Remember, Mother’s Day was brought into existence through the efforts of one person – Ann Jarvis. Giving Tuesday was the brainchild of Henry Timms and has become a worldwide phenomenon in less than 10 years. Kwanzaa was devised in 1966 by Maulana Karenga, a professor at CalState Long Beach and is now celebrated by 12.5 million people each year.
One Million BookSunday Books by 2030!
And we need your help to make sure BookSunday is celebrated nationwide! Make sure you plan to celebrate the First Official BookSunday Holiday on March 10, 2024. All you have to do is reach out and give someone you care about the gift of discovery, imagination and wonder! Give someone a book! Then you’ve moved us one book closer to our goal of One Million BookSunday Books by 2030!
