Ethan & Choco's Book Club

Striving to make access to books and reading a core part of the care that SuperKids receive in the hospital, with the principal premise that literacy support for children fighting cancer and other life-threatening conditions can help promote cognitive development and social connections that are part of thriving through treatment and beyond

BOOK IT! 2021 Virtual Book Drive

Due to ongoing uncertainty around potential Covid-19 restrictions at the time that event decisions had to be made, ECBC will not be hosting our in-person annual fundraising event again this year. We are, however, conducting the virtual fundraising and book drive component of BOOK IT, which we hope will receive a strong response so that ECBC can continue to sustain and grow its book and reading programs at CHOC Children’s Hospital. We need your support now more than ever:  Our costs are way up (since outgoing book donations actually increased during Covid), while incoming book donations have been way down over the past year and a half.  As ECBC’s annual fundraiser and only formal fundraising event, BOOK IT! provides the majority of the needed funds to sustain its book and reading programs at CHOC Children’s Hospital. We are aiming to raise enough funds to get us to September 2022, when we are hoping to host a full BOOK IT with a return of our in-person charity runs, book drive, and celebration of thrivership against cancer through reading!

Please help us to help kids keep on thriving through treatment!

Thank you to all of our donors from the virtual BOOK IT 2020 as well as our our event sponsors and partners from our last in-person BOOK IT! in 2019. Your significant support has sustained ECBC’s programs through 2020 and midway into 2021. Without an in-person event for BOOK IT2021, we are not soliciting sponsors again this year. We are deeply grateful for your significant support of our cause, and we hope to partner with some of you again for BOOK IT 2022!
