Story Time at Children's National Hospital with book donations to the Family Library
At Baby Ventures, children are our greatest inspiration. We are dedicated to assisting trusted organizations - big or small - that work tirelessly to advance children’s causes. We strive to support these organizations' efforts in two ways: through charitable giving, as well as by partnering on various initiatives. To date, we have donated to the following organizations:

In May 2019, we traveled 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 over 200 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 – helped collect books by setting up donations drives at their stores.

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. Please donate today to ensure this valuable resource will continue to be available for all families.
In line with our commitment to supporting communities in need, we are also pleased to donate a portion of the proceeds from every sale of ¡Números, Baby! to World Central Kitchen, a DC-based nonprofit relief organization founded by chef José Andrés. Visit WCK to learn about their worldwide efforts to provide food assistance and much more from Puerto Rico to Paradise, CA.
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.
