Promote a custom reading event and tap into a community grant program to fund your Inchy Bookworm Vending Machine!

Read for My School is excited to announce a strategic partnership with the Global Vending Group to become their exclusive community fundraising platform. Schools looking for funding to purchase their Inchy Bookworm Vending Machine can now promote a custom reading event on the Read for My School platform that aligns with our core values - improving childhood literacy skills and giving back to schools!

"As community organizations (PTA; PTO) and schools seek grants and funding options, we want to be there to assist them in discovering the power of reading to meet their fundraising goals," said Dave J Schenone, Founder/CEO of Read for My School." "Promoting a custom reading event as a school fundraiser, embraces the importance of childhood literacy over typical product fundraising and taps into the generosity of donors to fund their Inchy Bookworm Book Vending Machine™. It's a win-win program that gets families excited to give back and more importantly, getting kids excited about reading!"

“Global Vending Group is proud to be a part of something greater than ourselves. We believe social responsibility should be a big part of any company, which is why we take pride in using our resources to take a step in the right direction towards literacy for all students,” said Connor Russo, Head of Marketing & Brand development at Global Vending Group. "We are so excited to find a corporate partner like Read for My School that shares our core values and helps bridge the gap between literacy and engagement by making reading an award instead of an assignment.”

What is an Inchy Bookworm Vending Machine?

Inchy’s Bookworm is a Book vending machine exclusively provided by Global Vending Group that motivates students to read fun and creatively. The Bookworm is a Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) program that uses golden Inchy tokens as a reward for positive actions. A token can then be inserted into the machine granting the student one free book to vend and keep.
