A Thousand Thanks To Read Indeed
Here are some of the thank you notes that Maria & Read Indeed have received:
Maria, Thank you so much for your generous donation of books to our Family Literacy Night at Northport Elementary in Brooklyn Center, MN. We had over 300 people attend an evening of free pizza, pop, book give-away, and a presentation by author Bruce Lansky. Because of your donation, each student was able to pick out several books to take home. It was so much fun seeing the excitement on their faces as they carefully chose their books! They were still talking about that the next day at school. Thanks again for giving them such a priceless gift – books!

Thanks for sharing your story. It was a pleasure to show the Twin Cities how you are helping kids. I hope you reach 1,000,000! Jeff Olsen, KARE 11
Thank you so much for your book donation to Community of Peace Academy. Your gift provided each student in kindergarten to 2nd grade with a book of their own. Your thoughtfulness is an inspiration to me and all of the students here at CPA. You are an incredibly amazing person. Good luck on your million book goal. Peace, Sarah Bober, librarian
It was a pleasure to meet you, your brother, and your mother at our offices. Thank you for arranging for the amazing contribution of so many books for the Care Partners program. There are many young cancer patients and their siblings who will really appreciate these books.
Kids can change the world. Your Read Indeed program is living proof of that. I have a great job…I get to help kids lead happier, healthier lives by improving their outcomes when faced with cancer. But the best part of my job is getting to thank people, like you, who truly make a difference in the lives of children.
Thank you for the great work that you are doing with the Read Indeed program and good luck in getting to your goal of one million books!

Thank you so much for your kind and generous donation of books to our preschoolers! At Preschool 4 Peace we strive to foster a love of reading and having books in our students’ hands is essential to achieving this goal. Thank you again!
Sincerely, Preschool 4 Peace Staff and Students
Dear Maria, All of the children, staff and volunteers at St. Joseph’s Home for Children want you to know how very special we think you are! Your extraordinary effort to collect a million books to distribute to kids around the world is meaningful and important in many ways. We are abundantly grateful, that of all the children in the world, you have included ours at St. Joe’s.
When a child arrives at St. Joe’s, scared and alone, we can make that child feel comforted with a book from our friend, Maria. We are also using the books in our dormitories where kids live. Imagine how wonderful it must be for a little girl or boy to have a bedtime story read by one of our employees or volunteers. It’s nice to fall asleep thinking happy thoughts. Your gift has made that possible and we cannot thank you enough.
We wish you every success in your mission to provide reading material for children around the world. Thank you again, Maria, for your amazing act of kindness.

Thank you so much for the donation of books that we distributed to our students. You can just imagine how excited they were when they were told they could pick out a book to read over the summer. We are blessed with many motivated readers at St. Thomas More. Your efforts to get books into the hands of children is much appreciated!
Thanks again,Patrick LoftonPrincipal

I am sending you a thank you note to thank you on behalf of all the children who are receiving Read Indeed books. Your gigantic book drive has already helped so many kids. You are a kind, thoughtful girl who is a leader.
Thank you again for being so thoughtful of other kids who don’t have any books.
