"I wanted to thank you for all of the books that you gave to my program. On July 12th Leake & Watts had its first PCHP graduation. There were 121 people total that attended. Because of the books that I received from Book Fairies I was able to create a “Free Library.” There is such a large population of kids in the Bronx that don’t have books in their home, and I am glad to be a small part of the effort to increase interaction with literature, and increase a love of learning."
Carol Fernandez De La CruzPCHP Coordinator, Leake and Watts Services, Inc, Yonkers
"From your hard work and dedication in the past two weeks, we have donated two reading novels to every child in our school from Kindergarten to the 8th Grade. Children are already using these literature books to complete summer reading projects. The expressions from the children who received these books was riveting to watch."
Dan SeidTeacher, Roosevelt Children's Academy, Roosevelt
"Thank you for remembering our seniors with the delivery of books. We greatly appreciate your thoughtfulness and generosity."
