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
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.
Give back: Here is where we can help! Two of the titles on Kwabi's list are from the A Kids Book About series - A Kids Book About Belonging and A Kids Book About Racism.
For the months of June and July, we ask for your help in raising funds by making a donation, here. You can make a donation in $5 increments and 100% of each donation will go towards purchasing these two titles at cost for Kwabi. To make it even better, we at McCoy Kids will match each dollar donated, up to the total of $250. A the end of July, we will purchase as many books as our dollars can cover and deliver them to Kwabi to take on his adventure.
