Empowering Literacy: OUABC Cares Program Amplifying the Magic of Reading



In a world where life can often be demanding and fast-paced, we firmly believe that the solace found in the pages of a book can be a sanctuary for the soul. Whether you're a parent seeking a moment of quiet amidst the chaos, a student looking to unwind after a long day of studying, or simply someone yearning for an escape from the daily grind, we know that the act of reading is a form of self-care that transcends age and circumstance.

The joy of turning the pages, the excitement of discovering new narratives, and the empathy cultivated through literary journeys are experiences that enrich our lives. We understand that these experiences should be accessible to all, regardless of the challenges they may be facing. 

With OUABC Cares, we're extending the reach of these experiences, ensuring that the magic of reading knows no boundaries. It's our way of saying that literature is a treasure meant to be shared, and we're committed to spreading its warmth and comfort far and wide. Whether it's providing books to individuals seeking solace during difficult times or offering the gift of shared reading experiences to book clubs and organizations fostering connections within their communities, OUABC Cares is our conduit for making this vision a reality.

As we continue to embark on this journey, we invite you to join us in making a positive impact through the simple yet profound act of sharing stories and spreading the love of reading. Together, we can build a world where everyone, regardless of their circumstances, has the opportunity to embrace the magic found within the pages of a book. We believe in bringing books to life with our uniquely curated books and gifts, which is why our book subscription boxes are a hit with kids, young adults, and adults.

What is OUABC Cares?

OUABC Cares is an initiative that holds a special place in our hearts. It's a program dedicated to spreading the sheer joy of reading by providing literature and entertainment to individuals, organizations, and book clubs in need. We believe in the transformative power of books, a power that can uplift spirits, ignite imaginations, and offer solace during challenging times.

It's a power that transcends the ordinary, reaching deep into the soul to heal and inspire. With hearts brimming with bookish love, we are committed to sharing this extraordinary force with those facing adversity or simply seeking a spark of literary joy to brighten their path.

How Does OUABC Cares Work?

The beauty of the OUABC Cares program lies in its simplicity and impact. Here's how it works:

Customer Nominations

Customers like you have the opportunity to nominate deserving individuals, organizations, or book clubs that would benefit from receiving a Once Upon a Book Club book box. Whether it's a family member, a friend, a teacher, a nurse, a coworker, a non-profit, a library, a hospital, or any other group or program making a positive difference in the community, all are eligible for nomination.

Fostering Book Club Connections

For both in-person and virtual book clubs, we offer a unique experience where each member receives their very own Once Upon a Book Club box. These boxes contain meticulously wrapped gifts, each labeled with page numbers corresponding to the featured novel. As club members read together, they get to open these gifts, adding an interactive and delightful dimension to their shared reading journey.

Building Communities, One Book at a Time 

Over the past month, we've had the privilege of touching the lives of book clubs and individuals through OUABC Cares. Here are a few heartwarming stories that remind us why we do what we do:

Hoile Girls Book Club

Girls are holding the 'Madame Mustache' box by Once Upon a Book Club.


Formed by Joyce, the Hoile Girls Book Club began as a heartfelt gift for her four daughters and daughter-in-law. When the pandemic forced them to meet virtually, their book club became a source of solace and connection. Now, as they gather in person once more and welcome more family members, we sent them our "Madame Mustache" box to read and enjoy together.

Broadmoor Book Club

Women of different ages are holding the "Write Your Own Story" box by Once Upon a Book Club.


This close-knit group of neighbors, lovingly referred to as "Club," embodies the essence of female friendship and community. Always supporting one another, they've been reading together since October 2020. We sent them our "Write Your Own Story" box to cherish during their next meeting, strengthening their bonds through the love of literature.

Mosaic Book Club

Women of different ages are holding the "Through Thick and Thin" box by Once Upon a Book Club.


In a new neighborhood community, the Mosaic Book Club came together to unite neighbors through their shared passion for reading. To kickstart their reading adventure, we sent them our "Through Thick and Thin" boxes, hoping to create lasting connections and cherished memories.
