The mission of Book’em is to create a more literate Nashville and ignite children’s passion for reading through book ownership and enthusiastic volunteers. We envision a future in Nashville where all children own books and know first-hand the joy and value of reading.

Giving Tuesday is November 27th!

Tuesday, November 27th, is #GivingTuesday – a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration. It’s an opportunity to showcase generosity, spread the word about our mission, and highlight the amazing work that our incredible community of volunteers do to bring the magic of reading to children in Nashville.


Our goal for this #GivingTuesday, which we are calling #GivingBOOKSday, is to raise enough money to purchase 1,000 books for Kids in Nashville. We hope to do this by getting 1,000 people to donate $2.50 (the average cost of one book). More than just a fundraiser, we hope #GivingBOOKSday invites new members of the Nashville community to be a part of Book’em. Hearing straight from our volunteers is the best way for people to learn more and get involved!


If you are on social media (twitter, instagram, facebook) and would like to help, here’s what you can do:

1. Share your story on your personal social media page. If you volunteer or support Book’em, tell your followers about how you volunteer or why you choose to support Book’em.
2. Invite people to help. Share this link to our fundraising page. Let your followers know that a donation of $2.50 = 1 new book for a child to cherish as their very own.
3. Don’t forget those hashtags! Make sure to use the hashtag #GivingTuesday and #GivingBOOKSday to help others find us!
4. Post on Tuesday November 27th! The fundraiser lasts for 24 hrs only, starting at 12am the 27th. You can post at any point in time during the day, just make sure it’s on the 27th!
