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,

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

A spring vote for you!

With all the headlines screaming disaster and heartache, it's easy to get disheartened. Reader to Reader has supported schools damaged by tornadoes, public libraries devastated by flooding, and communities deeply affected by local tragedy. But each day we see examples of how much good is out there. That goodness is not always in the headlines. Sometimes, it's tucked quietly away, but it's there, and is the very reason we do this work--to bring books and other resources to the next generation that so richly deserves them.

Reader to Reader needs your help to get books in the hands of children across the country. Will you donate or join our team? Your support makes a difference!

Thanks,
Kat

Hessle, East Yorkshire England
CROWDRISING SINCE: Aug 02, 2010
Stuff About Me:
I am currently a finalist at Loughborough University, studing Information Management and Business Studies however I am originally from East Yorkshire in the North of England.

In August 2011, my friend Dan and I will be travelling to China to teach English. Whilst there we will be volunteering at orphanages to help abandoned and orphaned children. China's one child policy means that hundrerds of thousands of children are abandoned every year. Please support these children by donating to our project which support the Half the Sky Foundation. Whilst there we will be keeping a blog to let you know how we're doing and showing you the good that your donations are doing.

I have many other projects that are also close to my heart, most notably supporting endometriosis sufferers and supporting families with children suffering from Aicardi-Goutieres syndrome. Aicardi-Goutieres syndrome is something that has affected my family and many other families. My cousins, Emily and Megan, died at a young age because of this genetic disorder and with there only being 50 reported cases worldwide there is very little support for it.

As an Endometriosis sufferer, I want to help other women who suffer from with the disease. it can have a truly horrible effect on the lives of women and affect their fertility.

Please help any of my projects, it's much appreciated!
