Since our founding in
December 2009, Bernie’s Book Bank has collected, processed and distributed more
than 770,000 books and now serves more than 50,000 at-risk children in greater
Chicagoland, who each receive a minimum of 12 books per year from us. Bernie’s
Book Bank is funded entirely by generous individuals, family foundations and
businesses. The Book Lovers Brunch will be a major fundraiser.
By 2013, Bernie’s Book Bank
plans to be distributing 1 million books per year to at-risk children in
Chicagoland, and then to establish Bernie’s Book Banks in other major
metropolitan cities. You can help us achieve that vision, and change the lives
of millions of children, through your support of the Book Lovers Brunch.
