Read Indeed is a 501(c)3 nonprofit literacy organization and the vision of Maria Keller, a book-loving 13-year-old who wants to make the world a better place—one book at a time. Maria began Read Indeed when she was 8 years old and her original goal was to collect and distribute 1 million books to kids in need by the time she turned 18. She accomplished that goal before the age of 13! Now Maria wants to distribute books to all 50 states in the U.S. and every country in the world. Having donated more than $4 million in books, Maria has touched the lives of hundreds of thousands of children.
