The mission of " Reads are Deeds " is focused on open access to families who go through difficulties and who do not have access to these products..


Tyler is one of our Kindle Fire recipients and a cancer warrior. Tyler's goal is to help other kids he meets while at his clinic or hospital visits. Reads and Deeds thought this is a great idea and provided Tyler with little solar cars, sticker books and engraved pens to start Tyler with his project. What a great kid!

Hope in Action

MEET DESTINY

Destiny is a long term patient at Tewksbury State Hospital in Massachusetts. She has been diagnosed with Ehlers-Danlos. 

We've placed 156 tablets/Echos in the hands of these great warriors since March 2013. Throughout our website you see pictures of our recipients. They use these devices for education, to play games, watch videos, chat with friends, access email, access the web, etc. For many these devices provide balance between physical and emotional needs.

Thank you so much for what you do for those battling cancer...." Alex's Dad

wow that is so awesome! I should let you know that you were absolutely write (if you where who I talked to in the very beginning asking about it all). It TRULY help her fine motor development. She never had to do ANY of that in PT. She knew how to do everything when it came to writing, drawing, using spoons, pencils, the works. I thought it was awesome either way but when something fun can make such a huge difference in development it is exciting. I guarantee that the cost of the kindle was no where near what it would have cost to have physical therapy to teach her and strengthen those skills. Not to mention it definitely increased bonding with all three of the kids, which is something you always want as a parent. I love the page, back you guys 100%, and have told everyone about you all. Thank you again, you have no idea how much of a difference you made with something I would never have been able to get them.

Meet SSG Justin Lindley USA Army, Retired, our 69th Kindle Fire recipient.

Mark is one of Reads and Deeds Kindle Fire recipients. He is a Kidney patient. who created a Facebook page to help other Kidney patients. Mark is awesome. He asked if maybe we could join his site with ours and have it be Kindles for kids with kidney problems. We flipped from Reads to DEEDS and offered him 3 Kindle Fires to distribute to kids in his dialysis unit as he saw fit. If you would like to help Mark with his project you can donate via

www.gofundme.com/readsanddeeds or the paypal button on our page. Please state it is for Mark's Kindles for Kids with Kidney problems or just Mark's Kindles. Your donation is tax deductible.
