And the Dream Big 2020 grand total is…

Dear friends,

Today is the last day of January, the end of Dream Big month…and that marks my annual moment of overwhelming gratitude when I total up all the book donations and am reminded yet again how incredibly generous our community truly is.

WOW! 42,183 is a whole lot of books!

Imagine ALL the home libraries those books will fill, the bedtime stories they will provide, the pride their new owners will feel when they put them on their bookshelves or bedside tables! But that’s not the only inspiring number I’m marveling at today:

  1. 1,113 people packed Rhythms Live Music Hall to volunteer and celebrate with us at Dream Big on MLK Day!

  2. 74 groups and organizations ran book drives and collected new and gently used books to donate! (See the huge list here!)

  3. Sponsors donated $116,100 to make Dream Big and Book Harvest’s work happen year-round! (Check out all our sponsors here — including our first ever Dream Sponsor, Hendrick Subaru Southpoint!)

All the photos from our photo booth are available here, in case you didn’t receive yours in your inbox. You can also find loads of candid photos from the event here! Feel free to find yourself and download your photos…and if you share them on social media, don’t forget the hashtag: #dreambigbookdrive

Many thanks to photographers Andrea Griffith Cash, Sybil Robb, and Scott Van Manen for donating their time and talents to provide all these great memories!

Thank you for dreaming BIG with Book Harvest,

Daniele Berman, Communications and Events Manager
