Join Our Little Ray Children's Books Partnership: Donate or Volunteer
Our Initial Funding Model anticipates 50 percent of support for our 501(c)3 nonprofit will come from donations and grants, 30 percent from book sales and 20 percent from fundraising events.
Our Waffles for Sharks event concept delivers food for thought about environmental, cultural and literacy issues. Reading rates are declining about as fast as shark-family populations. Learn more at waffles for sharks.
Donate Funds to Purchase Books to Save Wild Animals
Donate funds to our Little Ray Children's Books Partnership of donors, customers and volunteers. Donations lower our product costs. $25.00 helps us buy and ship one hardcover book ($15.00) and one softcover book ($10.00) to a nonprofit sharing our mission. Double your donation with matching employer gifts from your workplace. The average maximum match is $3,000.00. The average minimum match is $50.00. This is a big opportunity to help our small nonprofit foster and maintain relationships with wild animal conservation and protection organizations. Thank YOU.
Donate Time: Become a Micro-Volunteer
The Little Ray Children's Books Partnership welcomes support. Help advance literacy. Motivate children. Teach nature appreciation to early readers (children 3-8) and special learners (special needs individuals of any age). Share in our story. Introduce our cause. Promote giving. Inspire followers of our nature-based habits.
Write a book review. Proofread our website. Share a social media post. Host a Waffles4Sharks cookout and/or a "Raccoons Save the Day" trash cleanup event. Record a reading segment. Photograph a reading. Create video clips that deliver book messages of impact to young lives. Promote problem-solving.
Volunteer to read our behavior-changing, nature-based adventures at your community's early-learning centers. Ask if your employer will issue volunteer grants so that employees can help with this cause. Your company's volunteer grant programs may pay $8-$15 for each of your volunteer hours with us. Thank YOU!
Volunteers Help Others
“Help Others. The Goopy Ghost and Super Emily help us solve messy problems.” (This battle is with graffiti.)
Goopy Ghost: “Who's Telling the ghost stories?”
Super Emily: “The town people can tell your stories.”
“This ghost sheds pumpkin goop
wherever it goes
'cause that's what it's made of
from its head to toes.”
“Paint is a mess,
but goop washes out.
There are better ways
to get messages out!”
