Turn Off Tech 4 Two On Tuesdays

HELP GIVE SCHOOL SUPPLIES & EDUCATIONAL TOYS TO TOTS IN NEED 

& RAISE FUNDS YOUR TOT'S SCHOOL TOO!

How We Work 

Each of us, TOT4TOT and First Library, play our part in putting brand new, high quality, age-appropriate books (TOT4TOT only) into the hands of preschool children (newborn to age three), educational toys into the hands of preschool children of single first time mothers (newborn to age one), AND giving new, high quality, age-appropriate educational toys and children's clothing to the single first time mothers of preschool children, newborn to age three, the majority from low income families.*


Mothers are asked to read to their child daily and are required to visit their local library monthly.*

TOT4TOT, a charitable fundraising service, raises funds to open new chapters of First Library by parents pledging funds according to their zip code to turn off their children’s tech for two hours beginning on Tuesdays.


Plus, we raise funds for participating schools through our Pledge-a-Thons program.

Participating schools receive 50% of the funds raised when parents pledge funds, according to their zip code, to turn off their children’s tech for two hours beginning on Tuesdays through our Pledge-a-Thons program.

First Library, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that handles the registration and enrollment of local preschool children.


Along with the administration of the free toy program they also engage parents in the process by asking them to read to their child daily and require monthly library patronage. 


Nonprofit status is also necessary for reduced 

nonprofit mailing rates through the USPS for all mailings.

TOT4TOT, a charitable fundraising service, gives brand, new age-appropriate books to preschool children, the majority in need, of the participating school.  


Preschool children of the participating school receive up to 13 books a year, (6-7 books delivered semiannually).


Parents are asked to read to their child daily and are encouraged to visit their local library monthly.
