Be Inspired


KEZI Be Inspired MAIN GFX (590x400)


Nothing is more critical to a child’s success in life than the ability to read.  Many children don’t have books of their own, making it hard for them to read, learn and succeed.


KEZI 9 News and ABC are partnering with First Book, SMART, and the Cow Creek Tribe of Indians, to share the power of storytelling. By putting brand new books into the hands of children in need in our community, we will be sharing the gift of reading and inspiring them to write a better tomorrow. You can help by nominating your favorite school or organization to receive free books. Over 8 million books will be given away nationwide by Disney Publishing. Just click on the link to the First Book website below, and nominate a local organization or school in need. Nominate now through March 31st. Every vote counts!


Visit www.FirstBook.org/BeInspired for more information, and CLICK HERE to nominate a local organization now. Be Inspired!

    Coburg community charter school could absolutely use the books! Since they got dropped from 4j and started out fresh as a charter school a few years ago, They rely heavily on used recycled donated books to add to the library and now it is becoming a school that is housing middle school aged kids, as well as elementary, which will require more appropriate reading levels and material. Other funds come from fundraising, a lot of times out of the own pockets of parents. We could really use some extra help! Please…. all votes to Coburg community charter school!! Thank you!
