Secret Snowflake Holiday Book Drive 2019

Our Secret Snowflake book drive for 2019 has now concluded!  Thanks to the generosity of our customers and publisher partners, we were able to deliver over 1,400 books to the Mayor's office to be distributed to New York City kids.  Thank you for being a part of this annual tradition!


Greenlight is honored to partner with NYC Service, a division of the Mayor's office - and with YOU, our customers - to provide new books to kids this holiday! As part of the Secret Snowflake initiative, we've selected special books in different age ranges to be donated to the city's most vulnerable kids, and we're discounting them 30% for the book drive. You can purchase books on our website or in our store, and we'll take care of processing and shipping. It's a great way to give back to your city this holiday! The book drive runs through November 30.

Ordering Instructions: To participate, just select books from the list below to purchase (at a 30% off discount!) for donation and pay with a credit card at checkout.  That's it -- we'll take it from there!  Note that you will not be asked for pickup/shipping information on books for donation, and you will not receive a physical copy of the book; books will be sent directly to the recipients in coordination with NYC Service. Donation orders must be completed by November 30.

Greenlight has worked closely with our publisher partners to create this list of great titles for kids, with an emphasis on diversity and award-winning authors that are also fun to read!  Selections are all new for 2019, and highlight some of the very best contemporary children's books, so you can know that any book you choose to give comes well recommended.  Thank you for your generosity in putting books in the hands of kids this holiday season!
