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

CROWDRISING SINCE: Oct 15, 2011
Stuff About Me:

I'm a stay at home Mom, caring for my 43 year old son, Jason, who started seizuring in 1971 and continues to seizure on a daily basis despite medications,  brain surgery and VNS implant.

My son Jason, is never one to complain, about anything.  In fact over the years one of the things he has often said  to others is, "You can choose to be happy or sad.  I choose happy".  Wonderful, simple advice from someone who certainly has reason to complain, but just smiles, instead.  So, if Jason can still smile and choose happy after 40 years of seizures, I certainly can take a huge step out of my comfort zone, take a deep breath  and be an advocate and a fundraiser for research for those, who like my Jason, live with Epilepsy.  

About CURE & Epilepsy

 

CURE is the leading non-govermental organization fully dedicated to funding epilepsy research. 

  • CURE has raised more than $20 million
  • Over 83 cents of every dollar donated is invested in cutting edge research

It's time we found a cure! 

As a family that struggles with the stress, frustrations and heartache of living with a loved one with uncontroled Epilepsy, I was happy to find CURE...Citizens United for Research in Epilepsy is a nonprofit organization dedicated to finding a cure for epilepsy by raising funds for research and by increasing awareness of the prevalence and devastation of this disease....www.cureepilepsy.org/home
