November 22, 2022


With so much going on during the holiday season, are you looking for a meaningful, albeit quick, way to give back? We're here to help.

Join us in making children's dreams a reality this holiday season with these six easy ways for you to make a difference in just a few clicks! 


Did you know you can help spark world change just by shopping online?

When you buy via AmazonSmile, 0.5% of eligible purchases will be donated to the charitable organization of your choice! All you have to do is sign into your usual Amazon account at and then, type in Room to Read as your chosen charity.

It can even be activated in the Amazon Shopping app for iOS and Android phones.


After you make your donation in honor of a friend or loved one, send them an e-card to share your gift.

We've curated a lovely selection of e-cards from our children's book illustrations to make your holiday shopping even easier this year. Choose the perfect design for the socially-conscious person in your life.


Raise awareness and funds on your favorite social media platform. From Facebook, Instagram, TikTok and more, you can encourage friends to donate in your honor! Add a donate sticker to your post, start a fundraiser on your page and choose how much you'd like to raise and share away. You’ll be surprised how quickly the support rolls in!

To help raise awareness of charitable causes and encourage donors’ generosity, Meta will match $7 million USD in qualifying donations made on Facebook during Giving Tuesday.


Many companies already have existing corporate matching and workplace giving programs in place. If so, it may be as simple as checking with your HR Department to ensure your company is set up to match donations. We've also made it easy to search for your company at the top of this page with Double the Donation.

Don't leave money on the table. Help Room to Read through matching gift or workplace giving programs and take full advantage of all the benefits offered through your company.


Throughout the giving season, Room to Read will be offering special donation matching opportunities. Follow us on social media or sign up for our emails to be alerted. You can also give online any time. By supporting Room to Read, you put dreams within reach for those born into the most difficult circumstances, unlocking opportunity, joy and so much more through education.
