Sponsor a Reading Challenge & Inspire
a Community
Sponsor a reading challenge to share ideas, promote literacy, and make a personal connection with the communities you care most about. We’ll help you design a custom theme with goals and milestones tailored to you, then feature your challenge in 1,000s of schools and libraries to inspire participation.  
You + 2 Million Readers = Impact
Your challenge will reach our network of 2M readers and generate tremendous media momentum with national relevance. Most importantly, you’ll make a huge impact on the lives of the community members involved.
About Us
Beanstack, by Zoobean, is a program that motivates communities to read independently by tracking their reading and achieving milestones. Many have called it the “Fitbit for Reading.” Similar to fitness tracker challenges, reading challenges are a great way to encourage kids and families to read more. To date, Beanstack is used by over 1,000 schools and libraries and with over 2 million readers nationwide, and our reading challenges have resulted in 35 million books and 1.7 billion minutes of reading logged.  
Reading opens minds and closes achievement gaps.
