About Us

Together We Can Make Reading a Right, Not a Privilege

Our Story

Together We Can...

Welcome to The Marley Simms Foundation, a place where every child’s right to read is celebrated and nurtured. Named after Marley Simms, the charismatic and inquisitive character in Noelle Randall’s children’s book series “Marley Simms Does It Again,” our foundation serves as a beacon of hope and literacy for children everywhere.

Why Reading Matters

In an age dominated by screens, the importance of reading has never been more crucial. Reading not only enriches the mind but also sets the groundwork for a lifetime of learning, curiosity, and empowerment. As Marley Simms embarks on adventures like building a Homework Robot or tackling a wild Hair Day, we too aim to make reading an exciting adventure for every child.

Our Mission

We are committed to fighting childhood and adult illiteracy by making reading accessible, engaging, and fun for children from all walks of life. We believe that reading is not a privilege but a fundamental right. And we are here to make sure that right is upheld.

Our Approach

Reading-Centered Events

Through our creative and well-thought-out events, we merge the joy of reading with fun activities like roller skating, bowling, and visits to trampoline parks. Our goal is to make reading so entertaining that children will continue the habit long after they leave our events.

Merchandise That Matters

Our online store doesn’t just sell T-shirts and books; it sells the message of literacy. All proceeds go towards funding our reading programs and events.

Core Beliefs

Every Child Matters

Regardless of their background, every child deserves the opportunity to read.

Invest In A Child

A small investment today can change a child’s life forever.

Protect Our Children

We strive to counteract the influence of media and advertisers on young minds by promoting thoughtful reading.

We are a registered 503(c) non-profit organization, funded entirely by people and companies who believe in our cause. All donations are tax-deductible, and even small contributions can have a significant impact.
