StoryBook Treasures

StoryBook Treasures StoryBook Treasures Inc. (SBT) is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to putting the most sought after books in the hands of children.
StoryBook Treasures is a nonprofit organization that works directly with schools focusing on our country’s most economically disadvantaged communities to nurture a love of reading and build life long reading connections in children throughout the United States. Our mission is to work with educators, parents and children to inspire lifelong literacy connections through direct teacher instruction utilizing the most sought after children’s literature, helping children build personal connections to literacy and ultimately building a home-school connection by fostering the ability for each child to build their own collection of books in their own individual home library.

Storybook Treasures is on a mission to increase literacy for our nations’ children. We have created a revolutionary program to change the lives of children through books. Our unique program is implemented within the pubic school setting by the classroom teacher. Children learn to build a home library with the program’s books and supplemental materials. This method fosters the essential home school reading connection that is vital to literacy. Our programs success is proven by each child we touch.

Thank you to everyone who donated to my Birthday Fundraiser for StoryBook Treasures! Redesigning our program, volunteer platform and navigating funding shortfalls with the COVID challenges I continue to be inspired by all of you who support our mission now and over the past 6 years. Together we raised $1,768, 38 people donated and 7 people shared this fundraiser. In addition, many sent donations and birthday cards though the mail. I just can’t thank all of you enough for believing in me and my dream. When children, teachers and families thank me, I know in my heart and I share, it’s not me, it’s all of us working together with the inspiration of God... that is the real magic behind SBT.

When the 3 year old grandson is in the office and he sees the StoryBook Treasures list of books, of course he’s going to find the books you have on hand and mark them off the list. Love my little helper! 🥰

Some days fill your heart more than others and today is one of those days. Most of you know I founded the nonprofit StoryBook Treasures to put books into the hands, hearts and homes of children. In just 6 years thanks to our donors, volunteers, and teachers who have all fallen in love with the program, SBT has grown from 200 students to 6,000! With schools closed the need for literacy programs and family connection is greater than ever before making our mission to reach our neediest children even more critical.

This year like most nonprofits, I’ve been really worried about SBT and wondering if it will be able to survive COVID. Many of our grants and funding opportunities were diverted to support health and medical needs and rightfuly so! Unfortunately, SBT didn’t qualify for nonprofit COVID grants because this girl runs a “scrappy” operation. I personally volunteer all of my time, we have very little overhead and thanks to our volunteers over 98% of what we bring in goes directly to books and program materials.

Last week, as I started mapping out the program of books, material costs and shippping. My biggest concern was will we be able to generate enough to fully fund our existing programs and will we be able to cover the double shipping costs for delivering individual student kits due to distance learning and school closures.

When I am weak and have doubts, He is strong and leads the way. This weekend a donor reached out and offered a $5,000 matching offer. Today, a second donor offered a $25,000 match. If these offers are matched, the remainder of our programs will be fully funded for the school year. I am just so unbelievably grateful. In a time when our country is hurting and the needs are so great, God opened the hearts of these donors and lead them to SBT. I thank Him everyday for trusting me with this mission as He continues to show me that He will open the doors and lead the way.

Many have asked how to help and what they can do to support us. Here are our biggest needs:
🍎 let us know if you can connect us with someone at UPS, Amazon and/or a company who can help us with reduced shipping costs.
🍎 let us know if you can connect us with donors/grantors/business who support literacy, teachers, grassroots nonprofits and distance learning and who are in a position to match our current offers.
🍎 let us know if you’d like to volunteer to assemble SBT books and materials at your home.

SBT is truly the work of so many. I feel very blessed to have a community of friends, families, educators, schools and businesses who believe in our mission and children. Thank you to all have helped out and who carry a piece of SBT in their hearts. 🥰

If you’d like to help, please message me or email.

In 2019, four Briar Woods High School juniors attended a StoryBook Treasures (SBT) Volunteer Packing event. They were so inspired by the mission of helping our neediest children fall in love with reading, they formed the first SBT Club. Last year they hosted monthly meetings with Dunkin' Donuts and coffee, raised over $5,000 in donations, conducted a fundraising event and donated hundreds of SBT t-shirts to Loudoun Elementary School Clinics and more.

As the founders of the first SBT Club at Briar Woods High School and Loudoun County Public Schools 2020 graduates we want to personally thank Reagan Macomber, Sydney Mcknight, Neil Orandello, and Maddie Musso for their leadership, enthusiasm and passion. We are so proud of your accomplishments and know you will step into the future with continued purpose, vision, passion, energy and hope. We look forward to working with the newly elected student leaders who have been inspired by you and they too, will always carry a piece of SBT in their hearts forever.

Thank you to Mr. Synoraki for sponsoring the club, the NHS for supporting the packing events and Cristina Buendia Burbano,one of my former kindergarten parents, for sharing the yearbook photo. 🥰
