Help Red Balloon Connect More Kids with More Book and More Authors!

Thank you for being a great supporter of Red Balloon Bookshop!  For 39 years we've been connecting our community with books and authors and now we have a new way to connect even more kids with more books and more authors:  The Red Balloon Connects Fund

Red Balloon Connects was established in fall of 2022 by generous gifts from the Red Balloon Bookshop community as a way to promote equity in education.  The mission of the fund is to improve kids’ access to books and the people who create them, no matter the income level of the family.   

Your donation will provide kids from all backgrounds the powerful and inspirational experiences of having authors and illustrators visit their schools and put more books in the hands of kids. Tax exempt donations are collected by the Saint Paul & Minnesota Foundation and are distributed in the form of grants to schools and other organizations serving kids.

You can make a donation to the fund HERE

or by sending a check to:

The Saint Paul & Minnesota Foundation

101 Fifth Street East

Suite 2400

Saint Paul, MN 55101-1800

**be sure to include "Red Balloon Connects" in the memo line**
