Chronic Readers Club

is creating personalized care packages for chronic readers

Chronic Readers Club is a program that sends books to young people who are chronically ill from their own personal wishlists!

“Wishing you low pain and peaceful reading!”

The program was founded with the goal of helping young chronic readers escape into another world (at least for a little while) through the magic of books! Our mission is to help young people living with chronic illnesses remember that they're not alone and to help give them a break from the constant stressors that come as a part of being ill.

Here's how the program currently works: Anyone who is chronically ill, age 30 or under, and lives in the contiguous United States may apply. There is a brief application to be filled out on our website, and on the application we ask for a book wishlist. From this wishlist and other "about me" info provided by an applicant, we choose a book and collect other fun stuff (things like socks, notebooks, pens & pencils, bookmarks, stickers, etc.) to create a perfectly personalized care package! 

At this time, we are able to send out two packages to two new applicants each month, but we're hoping that with your help, we can begin sending more! Our waiting list currently has more than a dozen chronic readers on it, and we're desperately trying not to turn anyone away! But between the cost of books and shipping costs, it's been difficult to continue operating as we have been.

Which is why we value our patrons and supporters so much! With your help, we hope to begin sending more packages out each month, and to expand the program beyond just the United States to reach chronic readers everywhere!
