Giving back is an important value for us here at McCoy Kids. Raised by parents who founded grassroots non-profits, worked in public television, and worked in community medical clinics, we believe it's important to contribute to efforts that help a community thrive.
We've been partnering with community members since we launched the store to give back, where possible, and now we are putting a formal plan into place. We commit to supporting at least one give back campaign per month. We are still young and growing, but believe that by leveraging the power of community, we will be able to make great impact together.

The Peace Bus - Manifest Humanity Journey
Update: Thanks to all of your generous donations, and in addition to the matching gifts from ourselves and Channing Baby & Co., we were able to raise $975 in donations for the Manifest Humanity Tour! These donations were used in full to purchase books at cost and get them into the hands of kids across the United States.
About: Kwabi Amoah-Forson has been operating The Peace Bus since 2016. With his bus, Kwabi travels around sharing books from his Peace Reading List with children and documenting interactions along the way. This August he aims to set-off on his Manifest Humanity Journey, driving from Washington State to Washington DC to meet with President Joe Biden and have a conversation on how our country can come together in peace. Along the way, Kwabi hopes to distribute books from his Peace Reading List for free to children along the way.
