In May 2019, we had the honor of traveling to San Juan, Puerto Rico to visit Escuela Inés María Mendoza, a “receptor” school that took in additional students whose local schools were destroyed by Hurricane Maria. We hosted an interactive story time for pre-K through first grade students and delivered books we had collected for the school library.
In the true sense of what it means to be community-minded bookstores, two of our long-time retailers in Washington, DC – East City Bookshop and Loyalty Bookstore – eagerly took the opportunity to set up book donations drives at their stores to benefit Inés María Mendoza. With our suitcases of donated books in tow (and more in the mail), we had the pleasure of meeting the superstar librarian at Inés María Mendoza, Ms. Celimar Hernández. A seasoned and dedicated educator with a deep love of books (her T-shirt says it all), we thoroughly enjoyed learning more about the school from Ms. Hernández as we unpacked the books and toured her library.

Baby Ventures is proud to support the Family Library at Children's National Hospital. The library provides a quiet place for reading and respite, a Book Cart for bedside book deliveries, Storybook Magic events and much more.
Your donation will ensure that this valuable resource will continue to be available for all families.
In line with our commitment to supporting communities in need, we are also honored to announce that a portion of the proceeds from the sale of every ¡Números, Baby! book will be donated to World Central Kitchen, a DC-based nonprofit relief organization founded by chef José Andrés.
As Baby Ventures grows, we plan on giving more of both our time and resources to support the needs of vulnerable children. Check our blog for upcoming initiatives, as well as opportunities to join us in this most important venture.
