Popcorn and Books is a nonprofit organization founded by an 11-year-old Karter whose goal is aimed at providing books to children on a monthly basis to help grow their home library and foster a love of reading. The program is geared towards children who may not have access to a wide variety of books or who may not have the means to purchase books regularly. By sending books to children, Popcorn and Books hopes to encourage and inspire a love of reading that will stay with them throughout their lives.
The program operates on a monthly basis, with Karter selecting and sending age-appropriate books to children who sign up for the program. Children can expect to receive a new book each month, which they can keep and add to their personal library. Karter's program is designed to be accessible to all children, regardless of their background or socioeconomic status.
Popcorn and Books not only provides books to children but also serves as a reminder of the importance of reading and the joys that can be found in a good book. By encouraging children to read and providing them with the means to do so, Karter hopes to make a positive impact on their lives and inspire a lifelong love of reading.
