This summer, Joey McIntyre, a member of New Kids on the Block, teamed up with First Book to provide new books to children in need at every stop of NKOTB’s North American tour.
The Let’s Get This Foundation teamed up with First Book to host a new book drive in each city on the tour. Joey encouraged fans to bring new children’s books to be donated to an organization in the next community on the stop, as well as encouraged them to make a donation to First Book at www.firstbook.org/letsgetthis. As a thank you for their donation, fans received a free download of Joey’s latest song, Five Brothers and Million Sisters.
At the tour’s conclusion, more than 25,000 books and nearly $30,000 were donated! Thanks to everyone who participated in the book drive and make so many new books possible for kids in need across the country! Be sure to watch the thank you message from Joey and his adorable son Griffin below.
