Everybody Wins DC helps children thrive by building connections through reading.
The idea behind our mission is simple and straightforward: by giving a child the opportunity to share a joyful reading experience with someone who cares, we can change that child’s life for the better.
But it isn’t just the children who benefit. When we all connect over books, everybody’s lives get better – everybody wins!
