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

Ways to Support!

Here are some ways that you can help ECBC as we’re gearing up to get Phase 1 going in the hospital in early 2017:

  • Donate money to support books and reading for hospitalized kids. Click HERE to contribute directly ECBC!!
  • Donate books online: Purchase books from one of ECBC’s wish lists on Amazon, which will be sent directly to ECBC. Click HERE to access links to ECBC’s wish lists.
  • Participate in BOOK IT! 2019 — ECBC’s 2nd annual charity run and book drive! Sunday, September 8th.  Click HERE to register. If you’re interested in partnering with ECBC to be an event sponsor, click HERE to download the sponsor form.
  • Organize a book drive and collect books to donate: Help your child coordinate a new book drive at their school (school book fairs and the Scholastic book club program are terrific ways to do this); as part of a group social action project* (e.g., Girl Scouts service project; in lieu of birthday gifts, or as an “admission ticket” to an event).  All titles and all book formats for all ages (from board books to young adult novels) are needed and welcomed. We are in constant need of books due to ongoing loss of books that comes with operating a hospital reading/library program.
  • Involve your youth group in our RTT book box program. Email ECBC@maxloveproject to learn more.
  • Volunteer! Fill out this form to let us know how you would like to get involved! (form coming soon)
  • Help us spread the word! Follow Ethan and ECBC on Facebook or this blog to receive updates. Also, please help us spread the word by sharing this blog and the ECBC Facebook page!

* If you want to donate books but do not want to purchase off ECBC’s Amazon Wish List, you may have books sent directly to:  Ethan & Choco’s Book Club, 11451 Plantero Drive, Santa Ana, CA 92705. Please remember that all book donations must be brand new.
