Happy August! A vote for you…
Happy August! A vote for you :)

Every year, thousands of kids start school with no books in the classroom, poor school libraries, and no books of their own. Reader to Reader gives out hundreds of thousands of books to under-resourced schools, libraries and children, but the need is especially strong at the start of the school year. They need YOUR help to get books into the hands of children who truly need the power of reading in their lives.

Please consider giving what you can to this important cause. If you can't give now, join the team and spread the word!
Thank you,
Kat

June vote for you!

The summer is here, and school is out! But even though students are enjoying the sun, we're still working hard to bring resources to low-income schools, libraries, and communities. Reader to Reader's work doesn't stop with the school year, and becomes even more important. More than half of the achievement gap between lower- and higher-income youth comes from unequal access to summer learning opportunities. Low-income kids can lose up to two months of reading ability over the summer, while middle-class children make slight gains. Now more than ever it is essential that books are available to low-income children. Help us make this possible with your support today.

Thank you,
Kat

Happy January vote! Wishing you and your projects the very best this year.
On Thanksgiving Day 2012, someone broke in to Hopi Mission School in Kykotsmovi Village, AZ and stole all their laptops. Without them, students have little access to technology, research, Internet and essential learning tools. No one deserves to lose learning opportunities and resources because of someone else's hurtful actions.
Reader to Reader is raising funds to not only replace these computers, but to keep them safe in a locking cart and prevent any future theft. If you can, please help me support the children of Hopi Mission School today. If you donate $17 or more, Crowdrise will automatically enter you for a raffle to get a $100 donation to your cause (and a $100 Roozt gift card!)

Hi Brenda, October vote fo…
Hi Brenda,


October vote for you, just in time for Halloween! Wanna hear something scary? Children in low-income neighborhoods have access to only one age-appropriate book on average for every 300 children. Only ONE book! That impacts over 16,400,000 children in the United States.



Even more frightening, 80% of preschool and after-school programs serving low-income populations have no age-appropriate books for their children. Books are so important to a child’s development for learning, imagination and literacy.



Please help Reader to Reader get books into these communities. We donate hundreds of thousands of books each year directly to schools, after-school programs, classrooms, day care programs and other groups serving low-income children across the country. Your donation of $10 today will help us send a box full of much-needed books to6 children that deserve better.
Thanks for all your support, and spread the word!


Happy reading,
Kat (and the Reader to Reader team)

CROWDRISING SINCE: Feb 25, 2010
Stuff About Me:
I need your help! I have devoted a great part of my life to a cause dear to my heart --the plight of shelter dogs. Our 4-legged companions are almost universally loved, but most people have no idea of the perils that these animals face. Even fewer people are prepared to do something about it. I have donated blood, sweat and tears to making some small impact on the lives of our furry friends. It is a labor of love, fueled by a strong faith and commitment in a better, more compassionate, world.

In 2007 I co-founded a website, DogsInDanger.com that lists dogs on death row in shelters all across the country. The transparency we brought to the issue made the shelter community uncomfortable, but the public and the media embraced it. For the first time, we made it personal with names and faces of dogs on death row, and the public came face to face with a painful reality. Since then over 37,000 dogs have been saved with the assistance of this modest website… but we still have a long way to go. Millions of dogs are dying. To spread the word and keep up with demand for adopters, we are planning a national television Public Service Announcement to run on hundreds of networks.

In today's economy it is hard for anyone to part with their money and to do it for the animals is an incredible act of generosity and selflessness. Every donation helps us get closer to our goal. Thank you for supporting our mission to end the needless killing of our best friends.

Thousands more dogs will die today! So please reach into your heart and your wallet. Spread the word about DogsInDanger and make a donation to support our lifesaving mission. Please do it now... before they run out of time.
