Multicultural Children’s Book Day (MCBD) is just two years old, but founders Mia Wenjen and Valerie Budayr have achieved tremendous success and online support for diversity awareness. They’ve put thousands of free books into kids’ hands and they’re changing lives with their message. Last year on January 27th, Multicultural Children’s Book Day, they — along with support from corporations, teams of bloggers, teachers and librarians — made multicultural book news trend on Twitter at #ReadYourWorld.

Now, partnered with Junior Library Guild and even more corporate and author sponsors, they are looking to move the needle even further. Plus, with their new $25 MCDB Friends sponsorship program, everyone can participate by giving a shout out to their favorite diversity books for less than the cost of dinner out.
