Everyday Objects: First Book, USA

Books are among Karen’s most treasured everyday objects, and a childhood without books is, to her, unthinkable, so 15% of design fees from her ‘Books’ and other Everyday Objects patterns will go to First Book, a non-profit organization that provides new books to children in underserved communities.

Access to books is the biggest barrier to literacy development, with 80% of preschool and after-school programs serving low-income populations having no age-appropriate books. Founded by former corporate attorney Kyle Zimmer who quit her day job when she discovered that the children she volunteer-tutored had no books, First Book has provided 65 million books to date. With access to high-quality books, caring teachers can impart a love of learning, elevating the quality of programs and opportunities available to children in need. Your purchase of a Karen Singh Everyday Objects Collection Design aids:
